The collection is huge already. It's also super easy to get them on your computer. I'm so happy with how this is working out!!!
Nice :) I also am guilty of the sexy fonts blush2.gif

no theyre different. for example on dafont.com, i have to download the mac version. if i try to download the PC file, its blank and wont open on my mac.

Here's why:
Fonts on PCs and MACs have a slightly different file structure making them incompatible to be read directly by each other's platform machines. There are many fonts that are designed for both platforms but there will still be differences between the two versions. The biggest difference will be the spacing between letters will vary slightly so even if it's the same font it might lay out differently than you intend.

I didn't realize.

If people have mac fonts, they can do the same thing, but put "Fonts for Macs" or something like that in the email subject line. That way people can distinguish the types of fonts.

Currently there are no Mac fonts in the collection (that I know of), but if you add yours maybe other Mac users will add theirs too. That way you can get some new fonts too.

6. Email your fonts to both email addresses. Put PC or Mac in the subject line depending on what type of computer you have. The font files are different for Macs or PCs.

 

I added this info to step 6.

break it up into groups of 150. Repeats aren't really a problem. you just have to click OK for each repeat.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
