View Full Version : Manage Fonts panel?

02-02-2009, 10:38 AM
Hi, I notice that the 'Manage Fonts' panel is missing from Create > Text. Tried to look for it, but can't seem to find it. Is it still there? How do I load additional fonts into Modeler if it is not available? Thanks

Should still the there you may want to reset your menu layout. Or just add it back in.

Nope, not there. I checked the drop down menus. Also performed a search for 'manage' and 'add font' in Edit Menu, but couldn't find it. I also reset menu layout. Looked for it in the 'configure menu' panel. Can't find it. thanks

All system fonts are added when you start LightWave. If you've added a new font you will need to restart Modeler to add it.

OK, can you please tell me how to add a new font? The font I'm interested in is found in the 'fonts' folder on my computer, but its not showing up in Modeler. I'm thinking maybe this font may not be compatible with Lightwave????

Its called BlairMdITC-Medium. We use iMacs in the lab. Thanks

If the edit fonts shortcut has been unassigned, hopefully you'll find it Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts>Preferences

I've looked everywhere. The 'Edit Font List' option is none existence in the Edit Menu Layout panel or the Edit Shortcuts panel. I performed a search and can't find anything named 'font' or 'edit font.'

F10 also does not work with this.

Thanks for your help.

Geez - maybe it's a mac thing I don't understand - sorry. The big REVEAL has my attention divided.

I cannot find any sign of the font manager anywhere on the system either.

Kuzey over in the Mac support threads told me to open the numeric panel and manage fonts from there - it works! And maybe it is a Mac thing.
