  • I did this before but for some reason I am having a problem with fonts. I downloaded some new Easter fonts and all I'm getting is boxes when I click on the font. Could someone please tell me how to get the fonts to open right. Thanks....

  • Did you extract them? When i download fonts to my computer i have to extract them and then they work, they are in my Windows fonts folder, is that where your's are? I think its extract might be another word.

  • Let see if I can explain what I did. I clicked on the download, extracted the file to windows C/fonts. Then when I go into my program and type in what I need and try to use the font it's all squares. I'm using Windows Xp on my office desktop and I have Vista on my laptop. Hope I explained it so you can probably figure out what I need to do. Thanks Max

  • When you go into which program? When im using WC i just type something, then click on the fonts, find the one that i want and it changes the default font to the font that i have chosen.  I dont type in anything to find it?  Where did you download the fonts from?

  • got them from dfonts.com When I save them to my windows c/fonts they are usually there. I too click on the fonts choose the one I want and it changes the default but as I said when I do this when these all I get are squares. It's the same program I downloaded fonts for Christmas so it has to be something I did wrong cause they worked fine for my Christmas projects. Heading out to the gym and my volunteer work, will check back later when I get off ....thanks Max

  • this may not be the problem , but just a thought........
    are they regular letter type fonts or are they "dingbats"(pictures/characters) ??
    sometimes those have certain letters that have a character and some letters do not have anything ......sometimes you have to use all caps and sometimes all lowercase letters to get the characters....it varys

    if they are the "dingbats".....and if you remember which ones you installed...you can go back to the website and find them again, click on the name of the font , which will take you to a page that shows each character in a box with the letter you need to type to get that character...here is one for an example...the capital  or upper case letters will just print the boxes...the lower case letters print the characters.
    http://www.dafont.com/easter-bunny.font

    also sometmies the dingbats will not work in grahpics programs but will work in a word document ...so if you are trying to use it in WC software, it may or may not work there.....I have a few that will and a few that woont ....and none of them ever worked in my graphics program......just play around and check it out I guess.

  • You might want to check to see if they are dingbats, I went to the site and there are only 3 that are true fonts.

  • When you use a font that only gives you blocks,it is not supported which means that the letters maybe there but your computer doesn't recognize it.I know there is something you can do for this,but I don't remember right off hand what it is.Maybe I can google it later.
