Adding new font to TC

Hi Guys,

I have searched for an answer and there are some solutions but having tried them all with no success I thought Id see if anyone had any more bright ideas. I have a specific font I need to use in TC (a clients custom logo font), the font has loaded fine onto my comp, I can use it in every other program, other than TC.

Any ideas?

Cheers,
Charles

Thanks for the suggestion, I tried both of those and still no luck. I cant even get it to show the font in the font selection pallet, its like it doesn recognise it at all.

I have also tried copying the OTF into the TC  font folder with no luck. Perhaps open font type (OTF) is not an accepted format in TC?

May be post the font in a zip file and let some one else give it a try.

No luck here. Word recognizes it, but TCad does not.

I have had similar problems with other CAD software not recognising some fonts. Must be something special about CAD software.

Thanks again for the help everyone
