  • mh51 ~ FONTS

    I have downloaded, installed & use “The Font Thing”.

    I have created ‘collections’ and assigned appropriate fonts to appropriate collections.

    My question…..
    Is there a way to back-up these collections just in case I should have a PC crash…!!!
    OR
    does anyone use different ‘font organiser’ where creating a ‘back-up’ is possible.

    Any help from anyone would be GREATLY appreciated AND I hope I've made sense!!!!!

            Lois, yes. Fonts are the letter's that you type. They come in all different styles from plain to fancy and some are figures or objects.

            I quit installing them into the font folder because it bogs it down. I leave them in a folder on the desk top or external hard drive. When I want to use them I open the folder on the desk top and select the one I want. Then when I open the program I want to use it in (usually PSE6) it appears in my list of fonts. After you close that folder, it no longer shows in the list.

            Hope that made sense.

            PS Lois. I won't tell anyone, ok!

              Sue...

              So what you're saying is that you DON'T install them in your fonts folder in 'c' drive...
              You keep them in ANOTHER folder...
              You open THAT folder...

              then what... open the font you want to use & it shows up under the drop-down list of fonts...???

              Hope I'm not appearing to be THICK
              !!!!

                Nope your not Thick! That is what I said. Open the folder on the desk top. Click on the font that you want. Then go to your program you want to use the font in. Click on the drop arrow for the fonts and it should appear in the list.

                        If you have too many files on the desk top, it will slow you down. But if you load too many fonts in the font folder, that will slow things down too when you are trying to use fonts. If you have an external hard drive, you can store the extra fonts there, and bring them to the desk top when you want to use them. I am not an expert on this, Maybe one will way in on the subject. If you don't have that much on the desk top, I don't think having one more folder with fonts in it would hurt.

                          I keep my spare fonts in a folder within MyDocs.....

                          What you told me worked fine BUT what I'm trying to do is find a way to look at each font by CHARACTER therefore enabling me to use the dingbat fonts etc.
                          That's why I use "The Font Thing" and I can only view 'installed' fonts in this way.

                          So... if I want to look at all my "swirlie" fonts I look under the CATEGORY I've created - 'Swirlies' etc etc.

                          The original question I asked was... is there a way to backup the Categories I've created within "The Font Thing"...

                          If no-one else uses this utility, then I'm barking up the wrong tree...!!!! LOL LOL LOL

                          NOW EVERYONE IS CONFUSED ALONG WITH ME............
