    I have Plazmic 4.6 and keep reading about using custom fonts so I have a couple of questions.

    Can I download and put the fonts I've downloaded onto my themes?
    If so, where do I put them so I can use them in the program?

    From my experience using Plazmic it appears that it will use the fonts installed on your system. So if you find more fonts you can simple install them into Windows using the control panel and they should then be available within Plazmic (you may have to restart Plazmic if it is open after you add a new font before it will show up). Hopefully someone else can confirm this for me.

    Sounds good. I'll give it try and see how it goes. Thanks for the quick response aristile.

    plazmic appears a little finicky when it comes to fonts. if you're not using the standard blackberry fonts (the ones that are selected by default for each of the elements; BBAlphaSans, BBCapitals, BBCasual, ApplicationContent, etc) two things happen: 1) it won't recognize OTFs, only TTFs will appear in the list, and 2) it doesn't actually use the font in a traditional way. instead it creates images that it uses in lieu of the original fonts (being as the font isn't installed into the blackberry, but rather "packaged" with the theme this makes sense).

    plazmic pulls its list of fonts straight from C:\WINDOWS\Fonts (for XP)

    I have created a theme and exported it in both 4.2 and 4.5 and the font is totally different in 4.5 than in 4.2 (the 4.2 is the right font) It changed the font style in 4.5 for some reason. ANyone know why?
