Description:This activates a TrueType font previously loaded into memory for future use with printing commands such as Text.
In BlitzPlus you must set the font for each buffer you want to use it in, when that buffer is current.
Note: Blitz doesn't work with SYMBOL fonts, like Webdings and WingDings.
Be sure to free the memory used by the font went you are done using the FreeFont command.
