Default how to install a font

New user - where do I install a new font on my PC to use in PPX6? I don't see a fonts folder. Also, do I need to install a type manager if I'm adding fonts? Thanks!

If you're an avid font collector its worth installing a font manager like AMP Font Viewer, or even a commercial product like MainType, but for most users its easy enough to do from the Windows Fonts folder. Either just drag and drop the fonts to the folder or open the folder and select "Install New Font" from the file menu.

To quickly open the fonts folder, press the Windows Key + R, type "fonts", and press enter.

The font I downloaded is in the WIndows folder, it just isn't coming up in any aps including PP. Based on some research, I've discovered this is a WIndows problem. I've tried a patch suggested by several people but it didn't work. I've tried all the usual fixes: rebooted, removed and added the font, etc. I HAVE to add a new font (Caslon italic) for my project because it's the nameplate.

Anyone have experience downloading fonts to Windows XP that don't appear in programs? Do I need to buy a foolproof font from Serif to make sure this works?

Rebooting the PC often works.

Many users have found that using the Fix Fonts Folders utility from High-Logic can fix Windows Font Registry problems.

Its no longer officially supported, so use it at your own risk.
