Font issue
on Jan 24, 2014 at 12:41:02 am

I'm playing with the demo of ProAnimator and most of my fonts wont form objects. I'm getting the error "One or more objects cannon be created because their characters are missing in the font file." I am on a PC, Win7 and a large number of my fonts are Truetype. Is this the problem? I thought they used to work in older versions if that is the case. This is odd because I have no problem generating outlines in Illustrator or Element. This would be a major impediment to my ability to use the plug-in.

Hi Kolin.

In ProAnimator, you can use most TrueType fonts, but not all work.

If there's a particular font that you'd like to use, but ProAnimator
can't process it properly, you can do the following as a workaround:
- Create the text in Illustrator
- Convert the text to outlines
- Save the Illustrator file (turn off compression when saving the file)
- Import the Illustrator file inside of ProAnimator

Let us know if you have additional questions.
Also, if you have a particular font that you'd like for us to investigate,
let us know its name.
