Fonts that work well in VideoScribe

We have a new instant answer called Font Kerning which describes the way that VideoScribe handles fonts and which types of fonts are best to use.

If you use any fonts in your scribes that you think work particularly well please share them with the VideoScribe community by adding the name of the font to this topic.

Hi Matthew - my problem is you mentioned back in January this year about the lack of kerning and other problems (and users have been complaining about this for at least 3 years) yet no timeline has been put forward to address these known issues. Don't get my wrong I like what Videoscribe can do but I really wish it had stronger text tools. I generally do each line of text as a separate element because VS accelerates as it writes on text and the 2nd line looks unnatural. It also allows me to adjust spacing between lines but it takes hours and hours longer.

Things that would make life a thousand times easier- kerning, inter-line spacing, bold for individual words and key frames as opposed to the current slapdash timing system.

and the competition (namely Doodly) is making a big push (again) and they do text correctly. 

Yes, I understand your frustrations. We are aware of a need to make improvements to the way fonts are handled in VideoScribe. We will be making improvements but I cannot say at this time when that will be.

Here is the link  that was provided earlier in this thread explaining how you can use languages that are not supported by videoscribe: write-with-non-western-text-characters
