Tips & Tricks for Fonts

 

How do I install fonts from the "20 Handwriting Fonts" package?

The following instructions also apply to these font packages:

70 Handwriting Fonts

Elegant Mediæval Fonts

 

Unpacking the fonts

When you download the 20 Handwriting Fonts, you receive a ZIP archive file that contains the fonts.

Double-click on this ZIP file, and your computer will show the two folders TrueType and OpenType.

Unpack these two folders to your hard disk. The easiest way to do this is to grab both folders with the mouse and drag them to a new folder on your hard disk.

 

TrueType or OpenType?

The fonts in this package are available both in TrueType and in OpenType PS format.

All modern operating systems work with both formats – only Windows 95, 98, ME, and NT 4.0 accept only TrueType fonts.

In general, we recommend to use the OpenType PS versions of the fonts since they offer slightly superior rendering quality. The following installation instructions therefore refer to OpenType fonts, wherever possible:

 

Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4.0

  1. Start the Windows Control Panel.

  2. Double-click on the Fonts icon. Then choose the command Install new font from the File menu.

  3. A dialog box is shown now. In it, switch to the TrueType folder that you created when you unpacked the ZIP file.

  4. Select the desired fonts, then click on the Install button.

 

Windows 2000 and XP

  1. Start the Windows Control Panel.

  2. Double-click on the Fonts icon. Then choose the command Install new font from the File menu.

  3. A dialog box is shown now. In it, switch to the OpenType folder that you created when you unpacked the ZIP file.

  4. Select the desired fonts, then click on the Install button.

 

Windows Vista and Windows 7

  1. Open the folder OpenType that you created when you unpacked the ZIP file.

  2. Select the desired fonts with keyboard or mouse, then press the right mouse button.

  3. A menu will appear. In it, choose the Install command.

 

Linux, BSD, and UNIX

Use the font installer included with your distribution to install the fonts from the OpenType folder.

 

Apple Mac OS X

  1. Open the OpenType folder that you created when you unpacked the ZIP file.

  2. Double-click on the font you wish to install.

  3. A preview window is displayed now. In it, click on the Install button to install the font.

 

Using the fonts

After installing the fonts, you can use them in your applications like any other font. Just as you would select "Times New Roman" or "Arial" in your word processor or graphics software, you can now choose your new handwriting fonts simply by picking them from the font lists of your applications.
