Hi, 
I created custom font in Substance Designer and exported as sbsar file. 
But, I can't import it as alpha in Substance Painter. I can only import it as basematerial. 
Doesn anyone know how to solve this?

Did you output as a single output grayscale?

 

Example :

Simple text note and output node in Designer

Published as sbsar to my Painter  Library >Alphas location

Hi Dave,

I'm having the same issue.

 

Simple text node and an output node, but when importing to Substance painter, the options for import is greyed out and set to basematerial.

Is there any other way to try to fix this issue?

Don't import it. Just put it in your library location under Alphas.

Hi Dave,

I tried to put it in my library location under Alphas, it didn't show up at all.

I found one of the articles you replied to: https://community.adobe.com/t5/substance-3d-painter-discussions/i-can-no-longer-add-assets-to-my-she...

I tried as the instructions but it doesn't show up as alphas at all - it shows up as materials if I add it in the libraby location under smart materials/materials.

Would there be any other suggestions to solve this?

Thank you.

Hello Daniel,

 

What's the type of your graph in the Properties panel?

Make sure it is set up to "Unspecified", so you'll be able to choose when importing in Painter.

 

Best regards,
