By default, the 3D Text and Shape Creator will look at the fonts located in your system’s Fonts folder:
- Windows: c:\Windows\Fonts
- Mac OS: /Library/Fonts and /System/Library/Fonts
The tool supports fonts in TTF, TTC, OFT and FON formats, which are all vector based. Fonts in bitmap format are not supported.
If you wish to use a font that is not installed in your system font folder, you can manually load the font by clicking the “Load a Font file from disk” button.
When selecting a font for your text, you can use the left and right arrows to quickly cycle through all your fonts. An alternative is to click on the font name. A popup will open, displaying a drop-down menu listing all your fonts. Click and drag the scroll bar on the right to quickly navigate the full list.
