Fonts. How to install??

  rotormota 19:04 30 Sep 2003

I've just discovered my new pc with WXP does not have some crucial fonts- News Gothic & Caslon, which I need for documents created on my previous WME pc.

1. Can I copy them from my old pc to my new one or take them off the WME disc or indeed any other way?

2. I can't do my monthly invoices so an urgent solution would be much appreciated!

File > Install New font.

Just copy over the file.

Try copying the fonts off your old computer onto a disc, floppy or CD
Insert disc into new computer then go to control panel, fonts, file, install new fonts - and that should do the trick>

Crickey there are some fast typists on this forum.

Sure are! ;-)

Thanks for that. I can't find fonts on the WME disc so shall I go to my old pc/C/windows/fonts, click on the required items & just copy to a blank cd?

Thanks again.

Thanks again! Obviously I was typing my response to Powerless whilst minter posted the answer to my question. Bit spooky that!
