First off, I didn’t really know of a better place to post it then here, so indulge me if you think this shouldn’t be here.
I’m having some trouble with the text tool.
In short I am trying to insert a Ø into a line of text.
Unfortunately, you cannot copy/paste plain text from one app to blender, and when I try to load it as text, or insert text under the edit menu text properties, the previous text remains. Nothing happens. Are those special types not in the build in font? How should I go about getting that Ø in? As editable text…
Alt codes don’t work, copy paste doesn’t work, load the text in blender and copy paste doesn’t work, insert the text directly doesn’t work… nothing works. But even if it DID work, you shouldn’t have to create a seperate text file in an external app just to load in one character…
There’s probably a very good reason why you can’t copy/paste plain text around, but I keep bumping into this issue every now and then.
Would someone care to explain again why this copy/paste restriction exists?
Maybe it’s something that should be dealt with in the future.
