    Post Mac Exporter to working PKG

    So I've finished a first version of my application in Fusion Developer 2.5 on Windows. I made it a MAC Application.
    In my application I used a specific font and also an array-file.

    My question:
    How do I create a PKG or DMG file that doesn't just install the .app file, but also the font and the array-file?

    I have been searching for several DAYS and finally found the free software 'Packages', but I'm not quite sure what I'm doing.
    I haven't been able to find any tutorials on this and really hope some of you guys can help me overcome this obstacle.
    The software is done, but like this I can't distribute it!

    About the array file, you should just add it to the "Binary files" tab in the Data Elements editor, so that it's automatically included in the application.

    Not sure about the font, I used Packages only once...

    If you own a Mac and set the build type to "Mac Xcode project", then you can add custom fonts to your macOS application via Xcode. The process is very similar and a tad easier compared to how you add custom fonts for an iOS application.

    1. Use the font(s) of your choice in the text object(s) of your application in Fusion
    2. Build your project as a Mac Xcode project
    3. Open your project in Xcode
    4. Drag your font file(s) in the Resources folder of your Xcode project, check "Copy items" and "Add target"
    5. In Xcode edit the Info.plist file, add the key called "Application fonts resource path" and set it to "."
    6. Build and run, you're done

    The official documentation about the "Application fonts resource path" macOS Key:

    Olivier, thanks!
    Really a step in the right direction for me.
    But... I'm not quite done yet.

    I have made two array-files with the array object. These files contain information needed in most of my frames.
    How can I encorporate them into the Xcode object?

    And when that is finished, how can I create a DMG of PKG (installer) from the Xcode file?
    This software is meant for a limited amount of users (students from a specific school) and should be distributed by simply sharing the DMG or PKG.

    I've been trying to find the answers to these questions myself, but after having spent another six hours on it today, I'm about to give up.

    Some help would be really appreciated!

    You can embed external files to your application by adding them to the Binary Data in Fusion, from the menu bar > View > Data Elements > Binary Data tab. Then when you export your application, whatever the build type, the external files are exported too.

    I'm not familiar about creating DMGs and PKGs, but I found this, hope it helps.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Christian!
    I checked out the website, but am still not sure it will do what I need it to.
    Thanks to the assistance of Olivier I now have an Xcode project, with font-installation.
    The only step I now need to make is to transform that Xcode project into a stand-alone installer that will also install my fonts!
    Will DMG Canvas help me do this?
    If so, my quest will have finally ended! ;-)
    That is... if I figure out how...

    I haven't watched the entire video, but from what I have seen so far it looks like this will help you do what you are after. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9Y22JD9IvU

    So what I'd do, underneath the App and Application Folder shortcut, I'd put your fonts with an arrow pointing to a shortcut of a fonts folder.

    Thanks for thinking along, Cobra!

    I guess you're right. I was really hoping to find an automated process-option for this, but I guess that's not really an option.
    I'll watch the video asap! Thanks again!
