This is a site for free fonts. I don't see a thread for fonts but there are so many available out there.

OK

Thanks a million for the previous links, I didn't know about any of those places, so I've just bookmarked them in my Fonts favourite folder. :) And I hope to control myself this time :o no like I did with the brushes.

And these are the links I know to places where there are free fonts.

Welcome to the House of Lime (http://www.houseoflime.com/)
Cool Font Details, The Font Hut (http://www.thefonthut.com/details.html?d=1505)
Free Dingbat Fonts (http://www.dingbatdepot.com/)
9800 Free Fonts (http://www.creamundo.com/index.php?lang=en)
Free Scrapbook Fonts (http://kevinandamanda.com/scrapbook/fonts/freescrapbookfonts/)

And this is the link to a website where you can actually create your own font. This is on a pay basis ( I found out about the website in Bob's Big Blue Blog2 )

In the Tips thread, the subject of fonts and a program for viewing fonts is being discussed. The Font Thing is a great program that lets you view all your fonts at the same time. If you don't have it yet...

Here is a link for a tutorial and a free download link for it.

oh boy! My computer is going to protest soon, I am such a font addict!! LOL!! I, too, use The Font Thing, and I LOOOOOOOVE it!!! You can view every font on your computer, not just the installed fonts! Which helps me out greatly, seeing as I have over 3000 fonts!!!!! And I keep adding more! LOL! :p

So how do I "uninstall" the fonts from Windows? I clicked the little "uninstall" icon in TFT and I think it completely uninstalled the font. I thought it would just remove it from Windows.
I haven't made a folder holding all of my fonts yet. Maybe I should do that first?
I was looking at the Digital Scrapbook Place Tutorial, but I can't tell by the pics where I'm supposed to be DOING this stuff (in the Windows folder, my folder, or TFT).
Whoops, I forgot to add that I have Windows VISTA, and all my fonts are already located in the "Fonts" folder in the control panel. But I still need a separate file folder? How is that any different than the "Fonts" folder in the control panel (CP)? Does the CP one automatically install any font located in it?
TIA for any help!

Hi!

Yes, the control panel font folder holds all of the installed fonts in your system. It is a good idea to start a font folder in your "Documents" to save new downloaded fonts! If you have too many fonts installed on your computer, it may start to slow down and have problems! By having a separate folder to hold downloaded fonts, you can then point TFT to that folder to browse the fonts BEFORE installing them! That way, you can install the fonts you want to use, and then uninstall after you use them and then your computer won't slow down on you!

If you want to completely get rid of the font file on your computer, you have to navigate to where the font file is located and delete it! However, if the font is uninstalled, the file shouldn't take up that much room on your computer and you can save it for future use instead of deleting it.

The great thing about TFT is the fact that you can install & uninstall right from the program, instead of moving font files around on your computer!

Hope this helps... if you have any more questions, just ask! :)

There's also a program (free!) called The Font Thing that's great for organizing fonts.

Thanks for posting the font thing! I'm going to have a look at it when I get home. I LOVE fonts! But I know I could use the ones I have more if I just knew what I actually have installed!
