FontSettingsSetFontsFolder Method

Sets the folder where Aspose.Words looks for TrueType fonts when rendering documents or embedding fonts. This is a shortcut to SetFontsFolders(String, Boolean) for setting only one font directory.

Namespace:  Aspose.Words.Fonts
Assembly:  Aspose.Words (in Aspose.Words.dll) Version: 21.10.0


public void SetFontsFolder(
	string fontFolder,
	bool recursive


Type: SystemString
The folder that contains TrueType fonts.
Type: SystemBoolean
True to scan the specified folders for fonts recursively.
