Using New Fonts For Paint.NET


Recommended Posts

anouther font site is dafont.com

and i dont know if this works for anyone else but for simplicity since when i get fonts i get a lot i save it to desktop, where i have a copy of my fonts folder, and just drag and drop after i have unzipped the font file. it installs like that, not much simplier but for those who didnt understand the first way, or use massive amounts of fonts that might be a bit easier.

Doesn't let me use it on my new computer. Stupid hard disk crash >_>

After installation was complete, did you restart Paint.NET?

Also, it was a .ttf (True-Type Font) file, correct? Paint.NET only recognizes TTF fonts.

Basically, all you have to do is close the application and launch it again.

Paint.NET reads the list of installed fonts at startup. If you add a font after it Paint.NET has read the list, the font won't show up in the fonts list until Paint.NET reads the list again, which won't be until the next startup.

The same way you copy any file in Windows. Right click the font file (The .ttf file) and then click copy. You then go to my computer and then into your Root drive (Hard Drive with Windows on it). You can make a new folder in the root and paste your font in that folder or you can just paste your font right into the root drive (Folder would be best). You paste a file in Windows by right clicking a blank area of the window and then clicking on Paste. Once the font has been pasted go through step 3.

Be sure to read the steps slow to make sure you understand :wink:. Also sorry if the late post but I am not at home and wont be home on my computer and internet till the 9th as this is the long weekend for thanksgiving.

Nice tutorial.

This is what I do:

1. Download font

2. Extract to desktop

3. Open Control Panel

4. Open Manage fonts folder

5. Drag the new font file into the folder.
