FontIndexFromName allows a file-specific font index to be looked up or assigned based on a font name. If the specified font has been used in the current document, then its index will be returned. If the font has never been used, then a new index will be returned. Once a font index has been assigned, it is guaranteed to remain fixed until the document is closed. The specified font must be present on the current system or the error index (-1) will be returned. If -1 is specified when assigning a font to an object in MiniCAD, the default system font will be used, so it's always legal to pass the result of this function to another SDK call to specify a font index.
