Font Index numbers

Wondering if there is a listing of the available Fonts in Archicad and their index number?

I think you'll find the available fonts match those installed on your machine, so it will vary from on installation to another.

Consequently, I also suspect that the font indices won't necessarily be consistent either.

Bummer!!

Setting the font for text output requires a Font index number not a Font name.

So I guess i'll have to use the getattribute function to get the index first? - seems like a roundabout way?

It's not so bad - you can use ACAPI_Attribute_Search to look up the font by name, which gives you just the attribute header (including the index) without loading the whole attribute.
