Possible to change font name?

Post by nancygail » Sun Nov 18, 2018 10:41 pm

Hello!

Is there a way to change a font name? I've tried everything I could think of and even researched it and used some utility but nothing has worked. One font in a set does not start with the name of the series... so its out of order. It also appears to have a space at the front which places it on top of my list. Evidently the name is embedded and I have no idea how to change that.

Thanks!
Nancy

The font name is embedded in the font file. You need a font editor to change it.

From where did you download the fonts? Perhaps there is a decent full set somewhere else.

I have no idea... I get them from so many places. I can do a search.
