i want to create an RTF report using the Open Sans font.
i tried things like:
proc report data=work.all nowindows style(column)=[fontfamily="Open Sans" fontsize=8pt];
but that gives error messages like:
WARNING: Font specification "Open Sans" failed. Using default font family instead.
help is appreciated.

thanks that worked.
a question though: why do i have to register a font in SAS before i can use it to generate an RTF file?
i would think that the RTF can be generated without it since rendering takes place in an RTF viewer (MS Word).
for the archive, on CentOS, i downloaded the zip file containing the fonts from Google Fonts
unpacked the ttf files it contains into /usr/share/fonts/Open_Sans
update the font-cache:
stop all sas processes to free SASHELP.REGSTRY.ITEMSTOR
run the following code:

All what i know is as in the SAS® 9.4 Language Reference Concepts Fourth Edition
that : "
The fonts that are supplied by SAS and the fonts that are installed by Microsoft
are automatically registered in the SAS registry when you install SAS. Fonts that are
installed after you install SAS must be registered manually in the SAS registry.
But your question still valid one.
