Problem with Greek letters

Postby leit84 » Tue May 28, 2013 5:16 pm

Hello!

There's a bug with greek letters missing in some words. As you can see in the attached screenshots the dictionaries work fine on the desktop.

Is this a Goldendict bug or an Android Font problem?

Thank you!

It looks like it's an Android font problem in the first place:

https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=26037

Just in case somebody has the same problem here's the solution I came up with. I basically just followed these instructions:

http://goldendict.mobi/faq.php

1. I copied the font Calibri from Windows 7 into Goldendict's '.config' folder.

2. I put the following code into 'article-style.css':

Code: Select all
@font-face
{
   font-family: "Calibri";
   font-weight: normal;
   font-style: normal;
   font-stretch: normal;
   src: url('file:///sdcard/GoldenDict/.config/CALIBRI.TTF');
}

@font-face
{
   font-family: "Calibri";
   font-weight: normal;
   font-style: italic;
   font-stretch: normal;
   src: url('file:///sdcard/GoldenDict/.config/CALIBRII.TTF');
}

@font-face
{
   font-family: "Calibri";
   font-weight: bolder;
   font-style: normal;
   font-stretch: normal;
   src: url('file:///sdcard/GoldenDict/.config/CALIBRIB.TTF');}

@font-face
{
   font-family: "Calibri";
   font-weight: bolder;
   font-style: italic;
   font-stretch: normal;
   src: url('file:///sdcard/GoldenDict/.config/CALIBRIZ.TTF');
}

body
{
   font-family: Calibri;
   font-size:0.75em;
   line-height:125%;
   color:#444;
 }


3. Voilà:
