You can find the CXF fonts at the top of every font selection box. For example "Standard".

Only Standard comes up in my font listing and then all of the true type fonts.
If I try to open one of the cxf fonts (3.22.0) first of all the file filter does not have a choice for cxf fonts, If I choose all files and try to open, I get a "Cannot open file 'C:/Program Files/QCAD/fonts/GreekC.cxf'. No suitable Importer found. Please check file format and extension." message
in application preferences - draw - text, I have "check all" selected.

When I go to draw simple text and drop down the main font, all of the entries have the TT symbol which I take to mean true type.

So 2 questions.
1. How do I open a cxf file to edit
2. How do I select a csx file to draw?

You can see what CXF fonts you have in the fonts directory of your QCAD installation (Standard, Greek*, Roman*, Italic*, Unicode, ...).

CXF fonts can be loaded and edited as drawings in the current snapshot release (3.22.0.8).
