If you are integrating your own house style in Teamleader, you’ll see there are a few standard fonts available under Advanced options. Yours isn’t one of them? Don’t worry, Teamleader can adopt your font straight from the Word document. To do this, follow the next steps:
1. Go to Settings > Document layout > select a department if you have several and pick the document type you want to change.
2. Click Advanced options and select copy from Word document at ‘Font’.
3. Open your template in Word, go to File in the top left hand corner and select Options at the bottom left.
4. Select Save in the popup that appears and check 'Embed fonts in the file' and 'Do not embed common system fonts'.
This option ensures that the font is available for others who don’t have this font installed by default. This way, Teamleader is able to recognize which font needs to be used.
5. Click OK, save the file and upload it to Teamleader by clicking upload docx file.
Some important remarks to keep in mind:
- This option is only available for Windows users and not Mac. If you don’t have the option to use a Windows computer, you can contact support to see what we can do for you.
- Make sure the font is installed on your computer before you embed it. In case you use a special font that is not installed by default in Word, this font needs to be installed in a TTF-format and not in an OTF-format. If this is the case, the OTF-format needs to be converted to TTF and re-installed in order to embed the font into the document.
- This option can make your file size considerably larger. If your file exceeds the 1 MB limit, please contact us at support so we can increase the limit. However, the absolute limit is 4 MB. If the file is still too big, we recommend you resize the images.
- The embedded font is not supported for all parts of the document. For these parts you can change the font using CSS.
- This import only works for documents with the extension .docx. This means that you need to use at least Word 2013 in order to be able to import a font.
- If all these steps are followed, it is still possible your font cannot be supported.
