Hi,

the available fonts that are shown there are just the installed fonts on your local machine. I recommend using the FontLoader component.

It is also used e.g. in the ChickenOutbreak demo game (ChickenOutbreakMain.qml).

We usually add the FontLoader to the GameWindow like this:

property alias myFont: myFont
FontLoader {
  id: myFont
  source: "fonts/somefont.ttf"
}

Then you can use it anywhere in your game like this:

Text {
  font.family: myFont.name
}

Cheers,

Alex
