Can i add downloaded fonts from say "dafont.com" to Paint.net?

Recommended Posts

That made me think, it would be quite useful if PDN did have that facility for fonts.


I'm thinking along the lines of a favourite fonts list. I have probably over 500 fonts due to the the ones I've added to Windows font store over the years, usually for one off purposes and often involving PDN. A smaller favourite fonts list also allowing you to save the same font with different size/type settings might be helpful for specific projects too.

Thanks for the reference @AndrewDavid but you did not have to. When I wrote that, I was just repeating what others, more experienced and knowledgeable users wrote before me.


@IHaveNoName, I read in the forum recently (I looked but I can't find it now), a discussion about making the drop-down fonts list in PDN behave like the one in MS Word - i.e. list the most recently used fonts at the top, sort of like favourites.

How do i add fonts to Windows?


Just drag them into your Windows Font Folder.  Then when you are in PDN it will use whatever you have in that Font folder.
