Jan, thanks, but I knew about bitmap fonts. They are just difficult to make and there are less of them available out there.
What I really want is just the ability to search for .TTF fonts, without it being the system font directory. You may have a couple dozen nice .ttf fonts that are good for games without needing to waste time scrolling through 100’s of fonts like Arial, Impact, etc.
It’s just a convenience thing. One collects lots of .ttf’s suitable, and designed, for games. 3x5, 5x5, 8x8 fonts etc, but all in .ttf format vs being a true bitmap font as you described above.
Also and it’s a little nitpicky, but for fonts to show up in the system directory I have to do a reboot. If ProMOtion just let me browse to a random directory, I could just load whatever .ttf was in there?
Understood. Unfortunately I must use system font resources and that means the must be installed. Only those can be rendered. A system reboot should not be necessary if you right click on a new ttf file and use “Install”, but I’m not sure.
What I could do is that you mark the fonts that you want to see in PM as a subset of all the system wide installed fonts or a kind of favorites option. Would that make sense?
