No support for new fonts. Adding extra fonts would make the player take longer to load, and I think adding more language support to the existing fonts should be a higher priority.

Support for being able to use fonts on your computer, but they would probably have to be converted to bitmap or vector shapes when you save.

True indeed, but as I said,

I support, there should also be nice and clean fonts, and some thick fonts; however not too much where the interface gets cluttered with fonts.

well they could make it load fonts only on request, probably even making the editor load even faster

Done, called the paint editor.

Support if I haven't already.
Fonts you could type with easily, and you could use them on all your projects. So, it's not done.

You should have the ability to import fonts. Nice idea! Support.

by the same thinking, what if the images in a project are copyrighted? what if the music is copyrighted? what if the idea is copyrighted? There is that issue and I think that fonts would be the least of the problems.

Doesn't the licences come into play? (The ones that allow us to use music and stuff, but give credit.)

So we should remove music from projects?
The music is compressed to prevent copyright issues

Supporting without putting a reason is unconstructive. Please elaborate.

And also, I support for new fonts, although there's already something in the vector format called “Text to Path”.

I left the forums. Sorry.

Support, as long as it also supports Windows font files.
EDIT I mean bitmap font files, not Windows font files. Bitmap font files have a .fon at the end.

I don't consider myself active on Scratch anymore, in fact, I've pretty much left Scratch. Although I post frequently on the forums (and you will see me continue to do so from now on, especially my Technical Difficulties thread), all of my older projects are rubbish (and take up the majority of projects on my account), and now that I have the skills, I just don't have time to work on good projects that utilise my programming skill. Even during the holidays, I have other stuff to do, and although I'd really love to do more stuff on Scratch, I just haven't got the time or motivation right now. Don't expect any new projects, and any collabs/shops that I've made are now officially on hold. Any collabs/shops I'm a part of, please put me on hold, or fire me if you're a shop. If I “return”, expect some ACTUALLY good projects with effort put into them, but I'll only return if: 1. I have the time to do stuff on Scratch and 2. I am motivated to make more stuff on Scratch. Thank you for reading.
I dislike Microsoft.

Unclear

Where do you want the text to be? If you want paint editor text, no support. How would this work? How would they program this? How many people would use this? If you really want a new font in the editor, then couldn't you just manually import it? (By that I mean geting the font, splitting each character and making new costumes and a text engine. Scratch is supposed to be a challenge. Also, text on the Scratch pages, no support, just use Inspect (element).

I'd say exactly the opposite. Scratch is made for people to learn programming. tho I don't think that new people would need other fonts, it could definitely be useful.
