    Red face Downloading fonts from web

    Hi, I was wishing to download other fonts that I do not have on my computer.
    I did the first bit (downloaded), unzipped and now I have no idea where to go from here. Where do I go now so that I can use that font?
    Love to hear from you.
    Thank you, Leanne

    OK I found fonts! How do I get the one I downloaded in with the rest of them. Sorry if I am asking dumb questions.

    In the fonts section there should be an add fonts option when you click open.
    add your new font here, and then it will appear in your drop down like the others

    Thank you for responding to my questions, really appreciate it.
    For some reason it showed I had no fonts to put into the rest so I dragged and dropped them in and it worked. You did point me in the right direction though so thank you for that.

    Well glad you got it handled. I love having lots of fonts to work with.
    Just remember, though, that if you use any font that is not web-friendly it won't show for people who don't have it loaded on their own computers.
    When I use the non-friendly ones I do so sparingly, and then save the text as an image, and alt-text the info so it can be 'seen' by spiders..
    Just n case, here is a bit on web friendly fonts: web safe fonts

    Good luck
