    I recently had to reinstall my Office 2003 software. Ever since I have not been able to get Lucida Calligraphy font which I used all the time.
    How do I download it?

    Something is odd, as that is a Standard font in my Word 2003 installation
    You should not have to pay to get it if its part of Office to start with.

    This site confirms that it is included with MS Office 2003

    This part is interesting:

    Notes

    The installation of any particular font might depend on the installation options that you selected.

    You cannot choose which fonts you want to install.

    Fonts are installed on your computer in the C:\Windows\Fonts folder.

    Perhaps if you selected less than a full install it has not been installed. Try a reinstall, making sure all options are installed.

    I don't know if this will help or confuse-- but I have the font and the only part of M$Office that I have installed is Publisher (I use OpenOffice for the rest of the suite). Is it possible that it might be installed with Publisher? (which comes with the Pro version)

    Thank you for your feedback.
    I have tried to reinstall my Office software but I still don't get the missing fonts.
    I'm using the Office Pro 2003 cd but have no success. Should I try another disk that came with my system?

    Try searching for LCALLIG.TTF on the Office 2003 Installer CD. It should be in one of the CAB files. You should then be able to drag a copy to the fonts folder on the hard drive.
