I try to work with the TTF font Cadastra downloadable from


This CadastraSymbol_TTF.zip Police consists of 2 "layers" 1 for the symbol; 1 to the symbol of the mask.

Installed ubuntu 14.04, using commands

sudo gnome-font-viewer CadastraSymbol.ttf
sudo gnome-font-viewer CadastraMask.ttf

This font is available in 2 distinct definitions in LibreOffice, while in QGIS, it appears "that" made in its release: Layer 1 + Layer 2, all in one color (=> so unusable).

Is it possible use those in the same way as LibreOffice (TTF layers separated)?

Thank you for your commitment,

Best Regards
