After solving the mysterrie of the 400+ missing PP9 fonts (they are actually on the PP8pdf CDs), I started playing with the newly found fonts) Using the "Fisher Font Thing" I made a some collections and then tried to install them. Several of the fonts refused to install (maybe because they wre already installed in the Windows Fonts folder??) They showed up as not installed in the Font thing Browser window, but were in the WinXP Fonts folder.
Meanwhile I tried using some fonts in PP9. I wanted to try Tennesee Light, but of all the tennesey varients (listed as nash*.ttf in the windows folder) only Tennesee heavy showed up. I tried installing them, unsuccessfully. but was able to "Load" them and then eventually use Tennesee Light in PP9.
Can anyone explain this behavior and tel me how to install these fonbts so they are regularly available in PP9???
Go to Control Panel > Fonts > menu FILE > Install New Fonts
Be warned a substantial number of fonts severely affects system performance, and make sure you only use *QUALITY* fonts. Many fonts just do not cut it and fail to meet the TrueType or OpenType specification.
I have no trouble with "The Font Thing". It installs, uninstalls, loads and unloads fonts as required. I would think that if you try to "install a font which it beleives is not installed, but windows thinks is..." you have a conflict that needs to be resolved, not necessarily a problem inherent in "The Font Thing".
