# Where is the default text object font (Bfont)?

I've found bmonofont-i18n.ttf.gz and droidsans.ttf.gz in the datafiles/fonts directory, but neither seems to be the default font that's actually used for Text objects.

Here's how the default font looks:

Here's bmonofont-i18n.ttf:

droidsans.ttf:

Clearly, the fonts I've found are not the same as the actual default.

I want to find the actual default.

The font is bfont.pfb

This is a built-in font which means it is compiled into blender. The font file is available from the blender source tree in release/datafiles

You can access and download the file, e.g., from the GIT repository at blender.org:

In the directory listing, search for the file bfont.pfb and click in the rightmost column on "raw" to download and save the file.
