How do I Install the TTF2PT1 font converter?

I have just downloaded the TTF to PT1 font converter, and not being to crash hot on code etc am not sure how to install and run the program.

Help… :o

This isn’t really answering your question, but are you aware in Blender2.27 and upwards, you can use TrueType, OpenType, and Postscript fonts directly within Blender?

No, I wasn’t aware of that. Well, I guess that solves that one! :wink:

By the way, once I’ve loaded a font w/ shift F11 and click new - how do I make it appear/or use it when I type in text in the main 3D window?

I’m not exactly sure what you mean… Shift+F11 is the text editor. You can’t change the font in there, it’s meant for editing notes, python scripts, etc.

To add text to the 3D window, use the toolbox, main menu, or SHIFT-A to add a text object. Go to the Edit buttons (F9) and there will be a button ‘Load Font’. Here you can choose a font for the 3D text. You can go back and keep loading more fonts, and they will appear in the menu above the ‘load font’ button.
