It was a bit frustrating to get this font into my Fonts folder, but this was due to my lack of experience and knowledge about just how to accomplish it. This is a lovely font and was well worth the temporary frustration on my part.

 

Thank you, corienb for giving this to us!!

Thanks for the font! Where do you make fonts like this where you can use it on word? Most of the websites I've seen, you have to pay something like 15 dollars and most people say that the placements of the letters don't really support cursive.

Not trying to be sarcastic, but if you are having trouble installing the font, do a search on Google, Bing, etc. for "install font on Windows [insert your version of Windows]."

 

Likewise for installing on a Mac.

 

Doing a search like this will probably solve about 80% of your computer-related problems.

Many years ago while in university, my handwriting degenerated into a way crazy shorthand of half printing, half writing, and eventually evolved in to pure block letter printing, which to this day is the fastest way for me to write. But I want desperately "learn" to write again, so this will be the perfect font for me to pursue learning towards that end.

It is my understanding that unless you are sending an email or attached document to someone who has a file with this font, the person receiving your message will not see the font as you do (or did) on your computer.

 

Of course if you create a document with this font on your own computer and print it out from your computer, the document will reproduce as you see it on your screen.

 

If anyone knows to the contrary, please let me know. The same would be true if you used it on a web site.

Some applications will try to substitute another font if they have something "similar". Some will just use their own default font. Others will replace your font with ?????. One way to make sure the recipient sees the font you have is to copy and paste the signature into MS Paint, or another image app, crop it to a reasonable size, save it, then insert the image signature file into your document. Most email applications will allow you to set up your signature to include image files, so it will automatically appear on your email.

Sounds like you are on Windows... simply double-click the TTF file which will open it in Windows Font Viewer. Then click the "Install" button near the top left of the window to install the font on your system. It will then be available in any applications that support fonts from the system.

For Word docs, PDFs and other "office" filetypes, you can simply embed the font in the file; then anyone who opens the file will see the font as it is used.* You can set your preferences in Word and other apps to have this done automatically for all of your files (with options to exclude common system fonts, and to limit the font to the glyphs used which will reduce the file size, though this isn't a major issue considering how small font files are relative to office document files).

 

For webpages, you just need to host the TTF file along with the HTML file, and then use CSS to reference the font to use it.* Custom fonts have long been supported in webpages, though its gotten better with the advancement of web technologies.

 

* Note: you can only do this if the license for these fonts allows such use; I am not familiar with what rights have been granted here. I assume that these uses are permitted, but I would also verify before doing so.
