UNICODE Support for Archive Index files

Project Archive supports UNICODE for generating index files of your archive data. This may be required if your project data includes character sets such as Japanese.

To enable UNICODE support you must provide a font file (TTF) that supports the characters used in the project.

Copy the font file into the folder where you installed your archive (where the archive executable is located) and rename it to ‘font.ttf’.
