    could someone tell me how to download a font

    I feel like an idiot, but I went to dafonts.com and I want scriptina, and it pops up in the winzip window, but then what do I do so I can use it??

      Open your control panel on your computer then drag and drop the saved font file to the fonts folder :)

        Hey Jilly! That's actually the same one I downloaded a couple of nights ago. The scriptina alt was not any good but the other one was very nice!

        When it opens in winzip, extract the files to the fonts folder that RaydensMama mentioned. Mine was under the WINXP folder.

        Are you using this on your invites? I may only use it on our save the date postcards, I am not as far as our invites quite yet.

          But before you do that, unzip the folder. Then take the font file to the fonts folder, or if you have a mac, take it to the font library.

            Thanks Girls, I'll try that!

            Paula, I am printing clear labels for our invites (because I don't have very good handwriting) and I was going to use it for that, but FI doesn't like it, so I might use it for one of my DIY projects.

                If you click on the finder (on my dashboard, the first icon on the left), it'll open up a window. Click on your username. That'll give you several choices. Pick "library", and when that opens up, click on "fonts." That's the folder in which you want to drop the new font.
