I have put some new fonts in my PSP. File>>Preferences>>File Locations>>Plug Ins>>Fonts is where they are located. My problem is how do I get them to show up. When I click A to use text, they are not there.

Thanks, Tammy

Please put the fonts in the Fonts sub folder inside your Windows folder. That's where fonts have to be installed to be used in all kind of applications.

Hi, Thank you for replying. I have another question. I have my fonts that I have picked up along the way in a folder in my documents. Is there any way to get it to the Windows folder?

Thanks, Tammy

Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Fonts. A window with all fonts will appear. Now drag and drop your font into that window to make it accessible to all applications.

Be careful with the amount of fonts that you install though. If you get too many heavy fonts your system is most likely to slow down. Install only the ones that you want to use frequently.
If you want to use the fonts only in PSP, all you have to do is double-click on the font file to open it and then PSP will be able to read it. Close the font when you are done.
There are also many font utilities that will just "load" the font for some time (similar to what you get when you double-click on the font file). Typograf is a good one (not free), and it also installs and uninstalls fonts.
The fonts that you don't install should be kept in a folder just with fonts in My Documents, for example. Keeping them separate from other files will make your life much easier :wink:
