    I operate under XPPro-SP-3. I use Word 2000 (9.0.6926 SP-3)

    I once had access to the TrueType font, Lucida Calligraphy, in Word. It is missing on my new machine. If I open an old document containing this font and resave it under a new name, I can replace the text in paragraphs composed in the font and it displays on the screen and prints just fine. In a paragraph composed in the font, the name shows in the font box in the toolbar in Word. However, the font is not in the drop-down menu for fonts in Word.

    I saved the contents of my old HDDs on a 500 GB storage drive on the new machine. Today I found the font and copied it to C:\Windows\Fonts. The filename I found is LCALLIG.TTF. It is dated 10/27/99.

    I still do not see the font in Word, even after rebooting the machine. Do I need to do something else to make it available in Word? I could not find anything in Word Help that appeared germane, but I may have chosen the wrong search terms.

    Thanks,

    Thank you E_OGRADY!

    It all worked just as you described. Would that I could have easily learned about this using a Help file in Office.

    I'm glad the Lounge could help you out. The reason why you didn't get much help from the Office help files, though, is that installing fonts is a Windows thing, not just an Office thing. You'll find that the font is now available in any program, not just the Office ones.
