Font Mate

by Jishnu Jithu in Addons


Font Mate is a time-saving Blender addon designed for users who frequently work with text objects. It enhances the font selection process by offering a convenient dropdown menu to switch between Windows Fonts, User Fonts, and a custom directory.

The addon addresses the limitations of Blender's default font selector by providing a streamlined interface, allowing users to efficiently navigate and select fonts without the need to open the file browser for each font.

Additionally, Font Mate includes a search function that spans all directories, further optimizing the font exploration experience.

This version introduces a suite of new features and enhancements, designed to provide a more intuitive and efficient user experience. The Font Mate panel has been conveniently relocated to the font properties panel. With added support for Linux and Mac, you can now set system and user font directories from Font Mate preferences.

Font Mate now includes a UI list for viewing and applying fonts, offering a superior alternative to the dropdown menu. The UI list also enables easy management of favorite fonts.

A new popup menu has been introduced for quick font changes, complete with features like filtering, searching, and viewing recent and favorite fonts.

The add-on also introduces a font filter for sorting fonts by type, and an updated “Font” panel that navigates to the font directory based on the font type.
