View Full Version : fonts won't show up!

02-28-2008, 12:25 PM
In the past, all fonts that I have downloaded have showed up in photoshop, wordpad, etc. However, now none of them do. I save them into the fonts folder in C:/Windows and they should be there! Anybody know why they're not showing up?

By the way, I have photoshop CS2 if that helps.

hm. maybe go into control panel and actually import them... like via the fonts section. then restart and it should be ok. i think.

Never mind. I figured it out myself, I had to install them.

I know you've got it fixed, but I have to ask; were you literally saving them to the Fonts folder? As it's not strictly a folder per se, and Windows does a bit of psuedo-transparent back-end work to install the font when a valid file's dragged/copied into the folder... my thinking is that directly streaming [downloading/saving] the font could balls it up a bit, as Windows needs the whole file beforehand for validation, at the very least.
