Specific font name?

I was wondering if it is possible to find what a specific font is called...
Fstack doesnt seem to have this information. or is there some referece somewhere?


for example
the font text on the tradeskills window or the spellbook...etc


Here is an example of some that I have already changed.
GameTooltipHeaderText:SetFont
GameTooltipTextSmall:SetFont
Tooltip_Med:SetFont
Tooltip_Small

You might get the information you seek here. It's, I believe, in the first paragraph. That may not be the information you're looking for but it's the only way that I know to check. Someone else probably knows exactly what you're searching for.

The reply I posted in your other thread about the same thing has links to the FrameXML files that define all the font styles used in the default UI, as well as a fully working font modification addon that catches everything.

If you really need to identify the specific font object used for spell names in the spellbook, just go look at the FrameXML code (again, see the links in my other post) that creates those font strings, and see which font object they inherit from. There's no way to determine this information in-game; once something (a font string or anything else) is created, there's no API to find out what it inherited from.

Well, all I can tell you is that the page I posted the link for tells you what, in general, thefont is used for, too.
So, the spell book and trade skill's use "FRIZQT__.ttf (the main UI font - NPC names, player names, spell names, item names, buffs, quest log text, combat text, button text)". That's as far as I can get you.

I have all of the fonts in my UI changed to "Emblem", and I currently use ElvUI (which made it a giant p.i.t.a. to change fonts), but, I used the method outlined on Vranx's site. To give me a bit of an extra edge I also installed the SharedMedia addon from Curse.com. All I can say is "It works for me".

ID:	8779 While you can see that everything is changed to Emblem, I'm sure something has been missed (but I haven't found it yet).
BUT, I figure you should just go with Phanx's way, because it's probably for the best.
