Open the Font Manager

This page applies to WPF and Silverlight 2

Use the Font Manager to manage fonts and select subsets of fonts that you want to embed in your application. Typically, users will already have most of the fonts that you can select in Microsoft Expression Blend 2, and therefore you do not have to embed them. However, if you add a custom font to your application, you must embed it in your application so that your users will see the font.

If you decide to embed, subset, or otherwise redistribute fonts in your application, it is your responsibility to make sure that you have the required license rights for those fonts.

Font embedding is not available when you open a Microsoft Silverlight 1.0 project.

  • In an open project in Expression Blend, on the Tools menu, click Font Manager.

    The Font Manager appears and lists all the available fonts that come with Expression Blend. If you have added any custom font files to your project, they will appear at the top. For information about how to embed a font, see Embed a font or a subset of a font in your application.
