I'm trying to download free fonts to corel X4 but it does not seem to be working?? Can someone tell me how we do this? Little confused
Fonts are installed on the operating system, and can be used in all Windows-based programs. You can install directly through Control Panel / Fonts, or using a font manager software, such as Bitstream Font Navigator, included in the CorelDRAW X4 suite.
I would not recommend what Ariel has suggested. If you are frequent Corel user, don't use Bitstream Font Navigator, it will consistently show you font missing messages. Do this 1-2-3 operation.
1. Download the font to a specially created folder so you can easily identify which fonts you have installed freshly,
2. Copy and paste the font file in the C:/windows/Fonts folder
3. Remember the name of the font (as it appears in the filename) and remove later if you are using a low-end machine and don't want to overload the OS with too many fonts. If this is not a concern, just leave it there...you never know when it will come in handy.
I have a machine with 2 GB ram and 160 GB hard disk space and I've installed over 4,000 fonts without adversely affecting the speed.
In reply to cognetsol:
Are you happy with 4,000 fonts? Good, but do not think this is a wise piece of advice for all. Many people smoke or drink much and never had problems, and this does not prove that it is good advice for others.
have a nice day!
Thank for everyones help!
