I am using the Video Editor and have added a new Text object to the sequencer at the bottom. When I try to change the font style using the "Strip" menu to the right, selecting a new font style does not change the way the font is presented in the preview. Clicking the "F" button next to the Font style, I see a "0" next to the fonts I've tried. Can someone explain how I can get Blender to recognize different fonts besides the default? Thank you!
I observed this behavior on Linux with Blender 2.83.5.
I found a workaround:
- Create a font strip in VSE
- Set the font you would like to use (the preview does not reflect this)
- Delete the strip
- Perform an undo. At least in my configuration, the text is rendered in the correct font.
