Custom fonts in Axure prototypes

Custom fonts in Axure have always been a little tricky but I have found a solution!

Aquatico have now made it possible to embed custom fonts in Axure!

Sick of Axure prototypes rendering a nicely designed page using Times New Roman? I have always struggled to make high fidelity Axure prototypes look correct on computers that haven't got certain fonts installed. This is because Axure doesn't support hosting a custom font somewhere...but NO MORE!

I have come across this awesome tool on Usability Matters that base encodes a font file for you so that your Axure file can read it properly. Many problems sorted. Thank you Usability Matters!
