Truetype Fonts Save / Load Options 

  • Embed TrueType fonts inside PCB documents - TrueType fonts are the fonts installed on your computer. Enable this setting to save the TrueType fonts you have used in your PCB file. This will allow other machines that do not have a specific font to view the design as you have intended.
  • Substitution font - The substitution font will replace any TrueType fonts contained in files you open but that are not present on your system. Use the drop-down to select the desired font.
