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.
