    Default Installed Font in Microsoft Windows NotePad not opening in Xara 3D Maker 7

    I bought Xara 3D Maker 7, installed fonts, no problem... installed another .ttf/.otf, yet the latest font installed merely in my Microsoft Windows NotePad, but does not appear in my Xara 3D Maker 7. Please reply to this post as soon as possible with instructions. I was wondering if there is a limit to the number of fonts one can install in Xara 3D Maker 7. I look forward to immediate assistance.

    Hi,

    I don't understand. Fonts are to be installed in Windows\Fonts; nothing to do with NotePad. Xara 3D Maker 7 uses the fonts that are installed in Windows\Fonts; you cannot install fonts in 3D Maker. So where did you actually install your fonts?

    What is the font that you installed and want to use?

    Have you bothered to close and re-open X3D7? Have you restarted your machine?
    Any Font limit will be down to the operating system and space.

    In a Forum, you don't ask for "immediate" anything.

    I did not breach forum rules with an enthusiastic comment about looking forward to an immediate reply. I installed the font in my c:\ windows fonts, restarted my hp laptop. The font appears in the installed fonts when I open Microsoft Windows NotePad: the font is a .ttf/.otf file: Kunstlerschreibschrift Medium D.

    Perhaps a Xara 3D Maker 7 update is necessary, if not a limited number of fonts recognized by Xara 3D Maker 7. I wrote to Xara Support, up to a 2-day response period. I look forward to any and all assistance from this forum. As for the rude and rude replies, you would remember online forums are monitored.

    You have commented back to browj2 about what I mentioned in my Post. I am still being polite but you were actually demanding in your Post: "Please reply to this post as soon as possible with instructions."

    What I will clarify is the use of "bothered" in my first Post; I can see that there might be a difference in usage in UK English vs. US English. My "bothered" was a shorthand for "Did you go to the bother of ensuring the application that might have been open at the time of the font's installation was then closed as it might not know about the new font?"

    All said and done, I hope the fault is not long in getting resolved.

    "Please reply..." is NOT demanding by any stretch of the imagination. Your inappropriate and inaccurate comments aside - remember monitors of forums... I will open the "application", Xara 3D Maker 7, and re-install the font. Thank you... and... GOOD DAY.

    @JevanSmith2018

    I wasn't able to obtain that particular font, but I did get KunstlerschreibschDOT-Med.OTF and KunstlerschreibschDOT-Bol.OTF. Neither showed up on the list in 3D Maker 7. I also have KUNSTLER.TTF and it showed up. After reviewing several, I noticed that it seems that only TTF fonts show up, not OTF. This is probably the problem.

    If I were in charge, this offence (for offensive it is) would qualify for instant banishment.

    how many years is it now since xara 3D was last updated... 2011 ? - you are probably right John.. it may well not do [all] open type fonts
