[oXygen-user] Font metrics file location

The font metrics files must be specified in the configuration file 
specified in Options -> Preferences -> XML -> XSLT/FO/XQuery -> FO 
Processors. Apache FOP requires that. You can read about this in the 
"How to Add a Font to the <oXygen/> Built-in FOP" article on the website:


FOP embeds the font data in the PDF file so the font metrics file stored 
in the same location as the result PDF has no effect as it is not 
accessed after the PDF is generated. Any path specified in the FOP 
configuration file is relative to this configuration file, so you can 
use that to avoid hard coding absolute paths in this file.
