reading through past topics I have found quite a few with reference to fonts and vector fonts.
I can not find anywhere to control these.
I am aware Eagle uses a limited number of fonts but hope I can find one that supplies things like numbers in circles?
Would someone mind running me through being able to change the font I can use when entering text (if this is possible) and hopefully help me go to one that gives me numbers in circles?
thanks.

Hi Mat,

EAGLE currently comes with 3 fonts proportional, vector, and fixed. They
basically use the ASCII character set that doesn't include too many
fancy characters. If you need numbers with circles in them the easiest
way to do this is to draw it in manually.

Using the text command enter a number, make sure to center justify the
text. Then using the circle command draw the circle with it center on
the center of the text. That's going to be the best way to do it for now.

Please let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia

Thank you Jorge. I suppose the only thing I would like now is one of the fonts that includes numbers with circles around them adding to the available fonts. hopefully replacing the numbers one for one. Confused
