The Parallax.ttf font is the default font used by the Propeller Tool, PropellerIDE, and Brad’s Spin Tool (BST) – the primary development environments used to write code on the Parallax Propeller Microcontroller. While it’s a good font for these tools, an alternative is the Parallax2-Bold.ttf font.

The Parallax2-Bold.ttf font is not installed automatically by any of theses tools and so it must be added manually by following the instructions below.
