I use some GoogleWebFonts and I noticed, that Rhino _Text isn’t able to access the many different styles.
Try the very popular Roboto font for example (customize and check all the styles before downloading the zip):
or Roboto Mono which goes well with technical drawings:
There is only the “B” and “I” button for making it bold or italic but that feels like using a text editor from the 90s. Rhino is supposed to be a design tool, right? Hope we will be able to access the different font styles soon.
Or maybe it’s possible and I just have missed something here?
Yes, they are properly installed on my windows 10 system. When you download them as zip they come as TrueType font format.
Other design programs like adobe illustrator or affinity designer have a dropdown for the font and right beside it a second dropdown with wich you can access the different styles. No old fashioned “B” and “I” buttons there.
I know this will probably not have a high priority but I still think it’s a must have.
Oh dear. That is a slippery slope. “A design tool” is not the same as “the only design tool cause it does everything”, as much as we may want to conquer the universe. By all means keep asking (I have no idea what this particular request entails) … but on the other hand, don’t wait under water, as they say…
It’s all in the system - no way to forget about it.
At any rate, if you check that YT issue, you will notice that it isn’t marked as fixed yet. You can pick font and style but there are still some related issues to work out.
I’m not sure. The YT item seems undecided.
From what I can see on my system, there are several style of a particular font available.
Are you missing font styles? If so, we’ll try to get the bug item on the road again…
