Font warning

(Rob) #1

Why is there 'not a warning that a font is missing ? or let the font get saved with the drawing
as it did give me some problems when i was sharing a file for lettering cut out , fortunatly he called me as i had 1 text object exploded and that had the correct font shape, but the other lettering was replaced with the standard font
I think a warning that a font is missing should be there to avoid misunderstandings and costly errors

or you can send the font with the file while sharing with others

that will also be difficult when having a new pc ,what fonts did you use in the drawings ,?
I think there should minimal be a warning and the original font name displayed with the drawing

I often use the Ubuntu font for 2d drawings and send it along with the file either to a friend or to print somewhere else. if not, I use the default fonts that every Windows have.

Thanks Wim it is really not ideal when opening a drawing at another place and the text is all different we use different fonts all the time , now we have to explode them to keep the form but then it is not editable anymore
i hope they solve it soon
