    Default SIngle Line text / Stick Font ?

    I am after a single line font (AKA known as "stick" font methinks)

    I have few different dacs but i would like to play on the FB3/laserfreak DAC as thats my favourite . I m sure i read somewhere mny months ago its possible to install fonts to use them , but WHERE do you get fonts ? ... how do you install them ? i would imagaine using them is as simple as choosing them once they are installed in the correct directory ?

    I am sure someone out there has wanted to do this beofre so theres no point in me trying to reinvent the wheel , any advice appreciated .

    Question

    Totally ignorant suggestion, but can't you take real fonts from you OS's font folder?

    They are double because windows fonts are basically outlines of shapes.

    I found some on another forum here.
    There are instructions in the thread on how to install them too.
    It looks like they are common in engraving.

    Hi guys,

    If you have Pangolin software (including LAStudio and LiveQUICK), I will send you our LD fonts. These are single-trace fonts, and they can be loaded into any Pangolin program.

    Best regards,

    William Benner

Already two separate companies in Germany have been sued for, among other things, illegally distributing font data created by (and included with) Laser Animation DSP system. Just because it is possible to convert font data into another format, doesn't mean it's legal or ethical to include it with your system.
