    Default Font not rendering on iPad

    Odd issue. One of my websites is based on the Equest template, which uses Poiret One font for its title. It looks really smart and gives character to the website (or at least I think it does).

    Having updated the site using Webdesigner Premium version 16.1.0.56164 I now find that the font no longer renders on an iPad, although it does on a web browser. Oddly, I find the mobile version is fine on my iphone.

    I have tried deleting the old uploaded site and re-uploading from scratch - no effect.

    Another site I have created using non-standard fonts is fine.

    Any theories, please?

    Possibly just refresh the browser (Ctrl+F5).

    Also, do you have permission to embed the font? I just finished a book and I used a free font for the cover and chapter titles. But the font would not embed in Acrobat. I contacted the font house and purchased a license and used the licensed font and everything was good.

    Refreshing doesn't work. (There's no Ctrl+F5 on an ipad, but you can still refresh.)

    The font is straight from the Xara template and works fine on browsers on the PC and, oddly, the iphone, so I do not see how it can be a licensing issue.

    In this case it sounds like a bug. I am going to move this thread to Dear Xara.

    The problem seems to have gone away, in that the font is now rendering ast it should. I am still mystified by it, though.
