Hi Gina For an application to 'see' a font it has to be installed before the application is loaded. In Windows you open the fonts folder (access through the control panel? My Windoze days are behind me <g>) and choose 'install font' from the menu, you don't open the font file itself. Someone will let me know if I'm wrong! A font manager like Adobe Type Manager DeLuxe or the Extensis equivalent (I've forgotten its name) are useful. They let you choose what fonts you have activated (available) all the time; then you activate any other font when you need it. With ATM you can also exclude certain applications from ATM's control if you get conflicts and problems with application crashes. It reduces the load on your PC and IMHO is worth the investment.
