    Hi!
    I have tried several Word Processors, Freeware & commercial, i can not find ONE that
    will accept TTF Fonts.
    Can anyone suggest one that does?
    Using Windows XP.

    Thanks in advance.

    Wordpad supports True Type Fonts (TTF) and I believe it comes as part of a typical Windows XP installation.

    On a closer look, yes it does show TTF Fonts from the FONTS directory, but it does not show
    my favorites four fonts that i copied in to the FONTS directory.
    Wordpad-Notepad- MS Works5 and others used to show this fonts under Win95-98 but not
    with Windows XP, i can not understand why not.
    Thanks for the help

    that i have copied over to the Fonts DIR, there was no problems with win 95--98, they
    just don't show up with WinXP :confused:

    Hi!
    Solved! The problem was that i copied the fonts over, not installed.
    After installing the fonts now they show up and can be used :)
    Thanks a lot Guys.
