    hey everyone!

    I am having trouble using the font data type in c4d. i get this error no matter what i do:

    > AttributeError: Parameter value not accessible (object unknown in Python)

    It should just be passing around a base container with a particular font but when i try to do anything with the data it gives this error... HELP!🤢

    here is a scene file:

    As you said, you get the error that the object is unknown in Python.
    -> You can't use fonts. (why ever ..)

    Sounds like access to font data is included in R13, so you may just have to wait a bit!

    @Jiveon: But then it should be added to R12 as well ! Every python plugin should be backwards compatible as well. (except such that use features of newer versions.)

    r13 has a complete different GUI element for handling the font selection and different structures/functions to programatically handle these.

    Prior to r13 the SDK didn't include functions to deal with the font selection. The font data (in the BaseContainer) was private and version dependent.

    Therefore you won't see or get support for font handling in older versions.

    Too bad about backwards compatibility here, but I'm happy to hear that C4D is getting an upgrade to its font selection mechanism.  Something more fully integrated into the software will be a welcome addition.

    Now about kerning......
