Where has Lucida gone?

  pcbobby 08:55 13 Dec 2005

I recently had a clean XP Home (OEM), installation performed by IT people.
I then reinstalled all my old programme software, including Microsoft Word from my old 98SE pack.

However, when using the Word facility to create some greetings, I found that I could not locate Lucida Handwriting fonts.
I notice that it is also missing from the Outlook Express list of fonts, which is part of the XP installation.

I would appreciate any suggestions as to how I can locate, and install, Lucida Handwriting fonts.

Thank you rawprawn.

Not sure if I am reading the site correctly.
It indicates that it is $79 to buy this font.
Seems a lot for one font.

Sorry about that I hadn't realised it was a pay site. Just type Lucinda Font into Google and have a look around.

Thank you again rawprawn, and spuds.

A question, as I had Lucida Handwriting on my old 98SE, is it possible that this font may on another one of installation CD's?

I have now located Lucida Handwriting on Microsoft Word Valu Pack.
When I try to add, or install it, a message appears asking that install a plugin for my photo editor!!!
Why ? !!

As indicated above, I have located MS Font folder in the MS Word Valu pack.

I could not find a way to install it because of the problem mentioned above.

I did however, manage to copy and paste it into the Font folder in the Control Panel, it does work after a fashion.
When you first select the font, a message appears: MS error report. I click : Don’t Send. I then open the Word document, and it works OK.
