## Use TTF font for text in working directory?

```Hello everyone!

I'm using a TTF font for Notenames by

\context NoteNames {
\override NoteName.font-name = "customFont"
...
}

```
I am on Windows and at the moment I have copied the customFont.ttf to the directory C:\Users\<MyUserName>\.fonts\
```
```
I find this a little unintuitive. Is it somehow possible to tell Lilypond to look for the .ttf file in the working directory, ie. the directory in which the .ly file is that is being compiled?
```
Thank you in advance and best wishes,

Stefan

```
PS: Simply "installing" the font did not work (which I didn't even want in the first place), so I went with putting it in that directory which no other programs seem to ever use.
