Short description of error
I used a text font in Blender (Bauhaus93 to be exact) and on my computer everything looked fine. But when i opened this exact file on a different computer, my text font changed to default and was all mixed up. I would like to know why is that, and how to fix it.
Here are the screenshots:

If I'm not mistaken, font files are on the computer system itself and are not embedded in blender.
Is it possible that the other computer does not have this font file (or is it in a different directory)?
@Bastien Montagne (mont29) should understand better how it works in blender.

Fonts are like textures, they dont transfer to another computer automatically.
They are external data by default.
You have to make sure the font is available on the other computer as well [at the same location, be it absolute or relative to you .blend file]

You could also use File > External Data > Pack All Into .blend (like the name suggests, this will then get saved into the blend file, so you dont have to transfer this to another computer manually...)

Will close this, as this not a bug.
