Secret Google file type?
« on: 2013-09-26, 13:57:37 »
Just got a chromebook. Trying to get away from Windows, but as you would expect, theres some adapting to do.

First thing I tried was to install the fonts I've been working on. Not a big surprize that it didnt work. Google doesn't support ttf. Sooo... next obvious question was what format does it support.

I'm not the most skilled googler on these interwebz, but still, I'd expect to see an answer pretty high up in the results. Not so far. And hitting the Chrome logo in the lower left corner on my screen, as you do the start button in Windows, gets nothing but the background picture. So how do you find what fonts are installed, if any?

Then I looked at their web fonts. They look terrific, but no file type to be found.

Could somebody here toss me a clue?
