Font Engine Text

Create lettering using TrueType and OpenType fonts installed in Windows. The dialog box with Font Engine options is almost the same as dialog box for inserting text.
Font Engine is an optional plug-in for Embird. Its installation file is built into Embird, so there is no possibility to download and install Font Engine separately. However, its price is not included in Embird Software registration fee. If you want to use Font Engine plug-in, you must register it first (see also Registration). You can use an unregistered plug-in for testing, but only few characters in each alphabet are enabled for this purpose. Find more information about creating Font Engine text at our web site with tutorials. Please note that there are no TrueType nor OpenType fonts included in Font Engine. Font Engine is just engine, which is capable of converting these fonts into stitches.
