Keeping fonts with Word docs

  Darlo Fan 18:26 01 Feb 2003

I do I attach a font to Word (or excel for that matter) so that I know that the person who receives it also see the text in the same font I sent it in. I have a fonts disc with 2000+ fonts and I'm sure I'll select one that the receiver does not have on his machine.

Also - what's the maximum number of fonts you can have installed?

You can have as many font as you like but the more you have the slower you comuter will work. Best to keep as few as possible as you will not use most of them.

Fonts like, Times New Roman, Courier and Arial should be on most computors.

Yep if you use a weird and wonderful font, there is a great chance that the recipient does not have it. So you will need to send it with the word document so that the recipient can put it into the fonts folder. (Providing they have the knowledge to do it).

It is a bit of a palava though. Try using a common font if you want to send it far and wide.
