Regarding fonts

Postby jobro on Sat Feb 11, 2012 8:58 am

I've been off SynthMaker for about a year, and I don't remember this clearly. Does the exported plugins come with the fonts used, or do I have to provide them beside the plugin to get the look I have?

yes you have to provide the font/the user must have the right font installed to get the right look.
here is my workaround: :)
you can add static labels( with the font you like ) in form of bitmaps to your OSM , for changing labels (readouts etc)
you can make a PNG strip in knobman using the text primitive (with your fav font of course).
this way you can use any font in your project and you don´t have to handle the font file with it.
but it would indeed be nice if the used font would get saved with exported plugs/exes.... ;)
