I'm having success having many pytags read custom user data from a single controller node, thanks totally to forum help, but the one variable I can't seem to get from one place to another is a font setting.
My goal is to have a main controller node where I can set a font, and have other pytags on other nodes read and use that font selection.
I can set up a custom user data field to be a font selection, but I'm having trouble getting the other pytags to read that selection and use that font on its affected object.
Is there a trick to dealing with fonts? I would like to avoid just having one pytag set all the fonts in a scene, for blah blah talkie reasons I'd like to have individual pytags just act on the objects they're assigned to... if possible. Thanks -- Alex

Add a Font-Userdata to an Object and try the following code.

print op[ID_USERDATA, 1]

Seem's like fontobjects are not implemented in python
