Hey guys,

Hoping for some ideas here. I'm trying to do a text effect for my tree and I cant get the model to display anything when I am using the OS Font. It does work with the alternative fonts but wont work with any of the OS fonts. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Hello,

Not sure exactly what is going on but I do have those exact fonts installed and have 2022.20 working. I was able to get the font to display on my mega tree. Here are some screenshots.

Thanks for your help everyone. Updated to the latest xlights. Updated the OS. Completely stumped here.
