Overview of Assigning Text Fonts

Fonts define the shapes of the text characters that make up each character set. You can use TrueType fonts in addition to compiled SHX fonts.

A single font can be used by more than one text style. If your company has a standard font, you can modify other text style settings to create a set of text styles that use this standard font in different ways. The following illustration shows the same font used by different text styles that use different obliquing settings to define the slant of the text.

You can assign a font to a text style by selecting a font file from the list in the Text Style dialog box.
