My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you
what version of office?
To install Office fonts you actually install them using the windows control panel
I a sorry, this stopped with wndows 7
this is a ttl file, correct?
I have five files provided to me by my client all are .otf
Here is how to offically add a font.
You need to copy the font file to : C:\Windows\Fonts
Keep in mind that usually fonts are ttl file types. I am not positive otf will work. If they do, that is where fonts are stored.
It wont let me copy the files into that folder
what is the error?
ok, I changed the folder from read only, the otf is an install file
I closed excel and re-opened it but the fonts aren't there
what happens when you double click the OTF file?
does it give you the opportunity to install a font?
It brings up an install window. Yes, but it only seems to install into normal.dot
Just looking at the fonts folder and the fonts aren't there
That is the process to install fonts. You install them at the Windows level. Once in Windows, Office pulls the fonts from there. Are you sure these fonts are valid? When you double clicked it and it allowed you to install, the process was working correctly.
Yes, there is no problem with Word
these show up in word?
I will have to opt out. The process I provided was the correct process. I am unsure why it is working in word but not in excel.
ok, maybe I should contact Adobe, they are Adobe files
thanks for your help anyway
