I have been trying to bridge the font Gabriola since it was discussed on another thread (It’s been awhile. Post those projects!) I have bridged them so they appear functional but once I use them in Fusion 360, there is a defect that limits the ability to act like the untouched letters.
At this point, all letters are exploded and “unfixed”. I then extrude. Every letter that has been bridged, does not extrude:
No matter how I try, I cannot select the letters from the sketch to do another extrusion. Now I revert all letters back to their “unexploded” state and extrude. Now I get a disc without any letters.
Here comes the money shot of this investigation. With three (clicks) I have selected all of the text for another extrusion:
Now the selection is used as a cutting tool in the body:
So the moral of the story: If you have a font that you would like to use in Fusion360 and it is not acting as expected, use it as a cutting tool with your extrusion and it will work fine.
I actually learned this in one of Craig’s videos. Special thanks to: @holla2040
For anyone interested, here is that bridged Gabriola font (remove “pdf” from the file):
