Hey vklidu, thanks for taking time for explaining yourself ! yes you’re right about difference between bigger "trunk"project and addons, from my side, and for now, i just use my free time to code some functions i need, nothing else, and be part of a bigger picture would take me a lot of time for sure (and i’m no coder, just enthusiastic ) but i definitly see your point, however i’m not able to commit more right now.
About performance, i’ll try anyway ^^ : the addon detect every time you change the selected font in the list, it triggers a functions which search in the .txt file in your preferences (the one with font list) the correct path to the font, import it, and apply it to the selected text object. This function is not a big deal for blender, but it’s called once, and it’s finished. But by hoovering the mouse, it has to called the function a lot of times, and the operator has to be running until you close your font browser. And just imagine you make a big movement with your hand and cross your screen from left to right : bim 15 functions in 1/4 s ^^
I’m no coder again (and coders can correct me if i’m wrong) but i think my addon would have to be optimised to apply this logic to it ! (was i clear ? :))
And for search function, it’s builtin in this kind of list, just click the + button down left of the list !
Hi, thanks for reporting. I didn’t try on 2,76, for now i only tried on 2,78 and 2,79.
Can you try on one of these versions ? just to be sure it’s a linux related problem (there is already one reported) or version related problem ?
hi guys, a bunch of people asked me about 2.8x support for font selector, so to keep you up to date, i m working on it right now.
I m first rewriting the addon for 2.7x with improvements and clearer code to allow a smoother transition for me (no profesional coder here ) and i ll port it as soon as this process is over ! i hope a (at least kind of beta) release on february ! font selector will be back, better than ever
if you want to check progress, you can go to the v2 branch on github, there is also a project roadmap (same github)
cheers guys !
hi id211, thanks for kind words, glad you find the addon useful !
yep, the github version on v2 is actively developped, the one on gumroad is not, it s 2 weeks old, i froze it because it s easier for bug reports ! i ll update it for stable release but for now, i advice users to download the github one to have latest features !
