How to&Answers:

create “fonts” folder under “assets” folder. After that put your font file in “fonts” folder and write below code.

   Typeface tf =Typeface.createFromAsset(getAssets(),"fonts/YOURFONT.ttf");
   Paint paint = new Paint();
   paint.setTypeface(tf);
   canvas.drawText("Sample text in bold RECOGNITION",0,0,paint);

Answer:

Use this:

   Typeface tf = Typeface.createFromAsset(getAssets(),"RECOGNITION.ttf");
   Paint paint = new Paint();
   paint.setTypeface(tf);
   canvas.drawText("Sample text in bold RECOGNITION",0,0,paint);

Answer:

Use the next:

 Paint paint = new Paint();
 paint.setTypeface(tf);
 paint.setTextSize(yourTextSize);
 canvas.drawText("Lorem ipsum", 0, 0, paint);
