IŽm a new user of Blender. Anybody knows how i can to select a font from word to write in Blender.
to me this question should really be asked in the www.elysiun.com
the only way i know how to is very long to explain and requires an intermediate knowledge of blender.
but there is a way to do it by cheating which doesn't work well and won't be able to be three dimensional.
try asking in elysiun Q&A section or send me a PM and i'll answer it
i know what its like being a learner as i was 3 months ago and still am learning today.
so i'm happy to help
but this whole site is dedicated to blender development (i think unless i'm wrong then sorry!!)
I was there but.........did not found it.
weŽll still searching.
I will try to answer your question.
First I assume you found Spacebar-add-text
Then go to edit buttons in your butons window (F9)
Look for the "Load Font" button and press it.
Blender uses Adobe type 1 fonts not Truetype.
Scan your system for .pfb or .pfa files (post script binary, post script ascii)
Usually they will have some strance numerical like 013A__.PFB.
Some of the fonts may be in your Adobe Acrobat directory, Adobe, illustrator, Macromedia Freehand and Coreldraw software also comes with an assortment of Type 1 fonts.
TransType at http://www.pyrus.com/html/transtype.html
claims to convert Truetype to Type 1 ($97 US)I am going to check out the demo version.
There are probably some to be found on the internet as well, though I have found very few.
Some useful tools are
Adobe type manager (ATM) Lite from www.abobe.com
ATM will enable you to see the correct name of the font and to view a character sample.
Elefont from www.armanisoft.ch
models 3D fonts from Truetype - (Can't get the page to load right now though.)
Accutrans 3D will model 3d fonts from TrueType which can be exported as DXF format.
Typograph is my new favorite shareware for managing fonts
Theres more to tell, but that may get you started.
Jaja, THANK YOU VERY MUCH both, I did it with your instructions
I have some .pbf files
. For a list of them go to the tools section and click on fonts for blender. Just reply with your e-mail and the files you want. I'll try to e-mail them to you.
