Hey Blender Heads ! The Version 2 of Font Selector is out and stable !

Font Selector is a simple addon to add font functionality to blender. It allows you to dynamically visualize available fonts applied to a text object without the painful process of importing a font through filebrowser.

This version is only compatible with Blender 2.8x.

Here is an overview of Font Selector v2.0 features:

Changelog version 2:

  • Blender 2.8x support
  • Multi File Addon
  • Complete rewrote of the external file system, now works in json, more reliable and fast
  • Startup Check behavior, automatic update of the Font List if changes occur in the Font Folders
  • Refreshing List is now a modal operator, doesn't freeze Blender UI anymore
  • Open GL Progress Bar to track the progress of the Refreshing of Font List
  • Change Font supports several text objects selected
  • Fake User Font Button, kind of per project favorite with advantage of regular fake user (keep data block in Blend File)
  • Export Fonts additional options (zip or folder, fake user fonts, favorites fonts, or both)
  • Support for Font Changing of Text Strips in the Video Sequence Editor
  • Relink of Font if Font List has changed
  • Missing Font alert if Font no longer exists in Font List, possibility to open the Font Folder of the Font datablock if there is any

A lot of improvements here and there, i hope this could be useful for some ! Feel free to criticize and give some feedback !

Cheers !

    I can't believe this has not been integrated into Blender, it's absolutely essential. Great work, and thanks for sharing:)
