    hi gray

    click, "options" then "manage favourite fonts"

    you can add and delete any fonts you prefer to work with without having to browse the disks font families. 😀

    Manage favorite fonts only works if you use version 4.95 text layout.

    Click on the *A* text tool and you will see a blue *F* appear above the selection tool, click the F. You will then see the font dectetive come up, from here you can create your own font groups, so you can have a group for the fonts you use most often.

    If you want to totally remove fonts from your system…

    VEF fonts must be deleted manually by removing them from their folders.

    True Type Fonts need to be deleted from within the control panel.

    Once you have deleted any fonts you will need to reset the font database. You can do this by going to File, then Install Fonts. You will then need to click the search button & reinstall the fonts left on your system.

    yeh i realised that brian after i posted it. 🙂 we set all our signlabs at 4.95 layout because that one in our eyes is the best.

    apart from a few extra fancy text affects i stilll reckon 4.95 is the vinyl cutters must have, tool. i only updated some of our signlabs because we wanted the colour master packages for printing. other than that i would have been happy to stick to 4.95.

    I agree Rob – the node edit control on 4.95 was probably the best I have ever used – far better (IMHO) then V5 etc.

    I preferred the node editing on Sign Studio! 😀

    Quite a few of our customers still use it as well, despite having Signlab.
