Perhaps you've even downloaded free cut files from Silhouette School and had this happen to you - sorry 'bout that.
I just realized how to prevent this font failure from happening. The burden is on the original creator to prevent this from happening.
So if you're sharing or selling Silhouette cut files that include text - listen up!
Create your design in Silhouette Studio as you normally would. After you've finished designing, select all of the text in the design, right click and 'convert to path'.
This turns the text into a shape or design so it will NOT return to a default font if the sharee does not have the original font downloaded and installed on their computer. Keep in mind though, since the text is now a shape, it can NOT be edited as text.
