Greek alphabet single line fonts

Post by Ged Green »

Hi - I have a job where I need to use the Greek alphabet, these need to be single line fonts for engraving, does this exist in VCarve Pro V8 or do I need to purchase single line fonts? - if so how do I load them up??

Many thanks!

The included Single Line Fonts are installed during the program's installation and cannot be changed or added to.

Greek characters may be available in the single line font alternate characters. You can access them by typing Alt plus 3 or 4 numbers from the number keypad.


Go to one of the links below to see the alternate characters. Then in VCarve, select a single line font and use the Alt plus 3 or 4 number keys to put the character in the text.
