font installs but cant find it or use it

Post by creative nuts » Tue Dec 12, 2017 3:44 pm

Ive modified a font and exported it as True Type (also tried open font).

I click on it and install it in Windows, it installs successfully but I cant find it to use in any program. I look in the fonts folder and cant see it there either.

If I drag the font file into the fonts folder it says its already installed but I cant see it in there.

Ive restarted my PC but still cant use the font Ive created.

If it is installed it is available, so maybe you are not looking for the actual font name?

If the name of the font begins with a lowercase letter, check that it isn’t at the bottom of the list. Some programs list uppercase entries first.

If your font does not contain the characters which comprise the name of the font, the font may appear as a blank line in the list of fonts presented by the word processor.
