Many song files on the Scriptorium use fonts that are not installed on your computer by default. To make it easier for users to see NoteWorthy products in the way that the original creator intended, the Scriptorium is now either storing the fonts for you to download or is providing an external link to the font. Where there is a link, the resultant font may either be a commercial font, in which case, you may need to pay for it, or it may be an executable. There may also be a free alternative link provided where one has been found. The Scriptorium cannot be held responsible for any executable downloaded from an external link. Use any executable at your own risk. Links to commercial fonts are provided so that you can purchase if you like, but otherwise, you can look at the font descriptions and search for a similar free free font.
How to install a Font
If the font is contained within a zip file, first extract it to a folder on your pc then:
Right click on the font and select Install.
If you appear to have difficulties with this, right click the font, in the general tab, select "properties", select "Unblock" and then try again.
|Vista||Right click on the font and select Install|
|95, 98, ME or XP||Copy the font to c:\Windows\Fonts|
|NT or 2000||Copy the font to c:\Winnt\Fonts|
Please note that there is usually more than one way to install a font. If you are comfortable with a different way, use it!
