True Type Font.....

Postby krsykes23 » Tue May 31, 2022 7:40 am

I'm trying to add a specific font to a DRO but when I select it from the fonts list, it says "Only True Type Fonts are supported. This is not a True Type font".

The font is definitely a TTF.

Hi Gerry,

It's a 7-segment style font. Interestingly enough, I tried another similar font but the digits 'shifted' a lot when counting up/down. I guess the reason for this was that a number 1 was smaller in size than a number 8 for example...hence the 'shift'.

That said, it did allow me to add this font even if I wasn't happy with it. I checked the properties of this font against the one I'm trying to add and they looked identical.

Yep....I'm fussy!

Is this the font that does not work for you? It works fine for me.

Not sure what's going on here. I just tried it again and it worked!

Don't run UCCNC while you install the font. I found this font which looks much better and is monospace.

Hi Dezsoe,

I changed the font to the DSEG Classic type and it worked much better than the seven segment version I described earlier. Then I saw your reply! Thanks for the comment on installing fonts. I did wonder whether the font error message was generated by UCCNC or Windows.
