Well postscript fonts are vector outline fonts, so they contain instructions about the building of their outlines and curves and such. Hence two files are required to use a postscript font under Windows.

As to how to install these fonts, well

  1. Click Start | Settings | Control Panel.
  2. Double-click on the Fonts folder.
  3. Choose File | Install New Font.
  4. In the Folders menu, navigate to the folder containing the fonts that you wish to install. A list of available fonts will appear in the List of Fonts window.
  5. Click on the font you wish to install or use the "Select All" button to install all fonts in the List of Fonts.
  6. Click on OK.
Please keep in mind:
  1. If you are installing fonts from a CD be sure the 'Add without copying files' box is NOT checked; unless the fonts are on a located somewhere (such as a network) which you will have access to at all times.
  2. Postscript fonts have two files: PFB (printer font binary has outlines that control how the font looks) and PFM (printer font metrics has information about font spacing). Be sure you have both font files.
  3. If you currently have or previously had Adobe Type Manager Deluxe 4.0, 4.1, or 4.1.1 installed you may need the Adobe Deluxe Updater in order to properly use your Postscript fonts under Windows XP. Get it from Adobe.
Hope this helped. Let me know and if yes please rate me:)

Overcoming Font Overload in Windows


We all like to install fonts however when the number gets above 1,000 your PC will start to SLOOOW down loads this will also slow down programs that use system fonts like Adobe Photoshop so it's a good idea to keep the number of installed fonts below 400. If you do this you will find your system and programs will start faster and run much smoother.
Does this mean you have to give up all your favorite fonts? Not necessarily... There are a few things you can do to have the best of both worlds. The best way is to use a fontmanager there are a few here are some of the best

I have a 64 bit computer and I am trying to install Parsons Hebrew Tutor which is an 8 bit program. Is there anyway possible to do this?


What OS were you previously using with the program? This program ran well under Win98 but could run in Windows XP. This is for the version released in 1997. Some reviewers noted problems with the fonts, screen resolution and color attributes under XP.

I think the only way you might be able to run the program is in a second computer (physical, dual boot or virtual). What OS are you currently running? If you have Windows7 Pro or Ultimate, you can run a virtual XP for free. (If you have Home Premium, you can upgrade to Pro or Ultimate for a fee.) Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the Hebrew Tutor on the XP computer. You may need to copy the fonts to the System font folder (either from the tutor disk or the folder that is installed with the Hebrew Tutor program)
To install a font, follow these steps in the XP system:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. Type the following command, and then click OK: %windir%\fonts
  3. On the File menu, click Install New Font.
  4. In the Drives box, click the drive that contains the font that you want to add.
  5. In the Folders box, click the folder that contains the font that you want to add, and then click OK.
  6. In the List of fonts box, click the font that you want to add. To select more than one font at a time, press and hold the CTRL key while you select each font.
  7. Click to select the Copy Fonts To Fonts Folder check box. The new font is saved in the Windows\Fonts folder.
  8. Click OK.
(Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. If you decide to run the program under Windows 98, you will not be able to use the XP mode. Instead you will need one of the other options I have listed.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(if you are running a UNIX or MAC OS, you can do something similar with a virtual computer. For UNIX try WINE (which runs many Windows programs). For a Mac, you will need a virtualization program and a licensed copy of Windows XP.)

If this isn't the word Gujarati: ગુજરાતી, in Gujarati then your computer probably doesn't have a Gujarati Unicode font installed and you will have problems reading the Gujarati section of this site.
Following are instructions for getting Gujarati Unicode to display properly on various computer operating systems.
Microsoft Windows Microsoft Office 2000 and Microsoft Office XP If you have a copy of Microsoft Office 2000 or Microsoft Office XP, or Microsoft Publisher 2002, and Gujarati is not displaying properly then you should install the Arial Unicode MS font which is distributed by Microsoft with these products.
If you are unsure how to install Arial Unicode MS from CD then please consult the Microsoft Help and Support website - try searching for "Arial Unicode MS".
Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 are not distributed with Arial Unicode MS so you will need to install an alternative Gujarati font.
You can download the following free, open source Gujarati fonts from the Indictrans Project:
Padmaa Medium, Padmaa Bold
Once you have downloaded the font file you can install using the font utility in the Control Panel, alternatively just copy the .ttf files into your \windows\fonts\ directory. There are more detailed instructions on our installing fonts page.
