using alternative font in comment

    hi
    is there a way to load an external (non-supported) font to be used in max? (in a comment box in this instance)
    thanks

      in case "non supported" means "not installed", this is not possible.
      but mind you, even most DTP programs cant do that. (the only apps i know which can do that are flash and latex)

      Like Roman, I'm not sure what you mean by "non-supported." One possible workaround, though, is to render the text as a graphic in something like Photoshop then use the graphic in an fpic.

      yes, in fact, I've been using svg's and rendering in jsui object. fpic would be suitable depending on how often the image changed. With svg you can control the layout using translate() method.
