    Lost fonts (Word 2000)

    My OS is Win98. I had created a brochure and wanted to print some more. When I went into the file, it printed differently, and I discovered that the fonts I used to create it are no longer in Word. I had used both Lucida Calligraphy and Bradley Hand ITC. How can I get my fonts back? They weren't listed for my printer, and I couldn't see where to get them on the CD. This is Office 2000 Professional.
    Does anyone know how I can reload all the fonts I used to have?
    Thank you,

    If you press the Start button and select Settings, Control Panel, Fonts, are your desired fonts on the list?

    Thanks for the response so quickly! No, the fonts are not there (Start>Control Panel>Fonts). This is so strange to me - they don't appear to be anywhere - so how did I use them originally, I wonder?

    Sounds like you need to reinstall the desired fonts. You should be able to do this from your Office2K CD.

    Re: Lost fonts (Word 2000)

    Hi! Thanks again for the reply. I already tried that - I looked at the contents of the parts to install and didn't see anything that said fonts - I will look again. I had also already done a 'repair' of Office, thinking that might help.
    I'll check out the CD again.

    Word 2000 Fonts Found

    I was successful in getting the fonts back, but I am not so sure that the Word CD enabled me, although I did go back and load everything possible for Word again. The venture was successful because someone from ZDNet answered my plea and gave me 2 URL's - 1 for each font I needed. Here they are, in case it will be helpful to someone else. The fonts were: Bradley Hand ITC and Lucida Calligraphy.

    Hope this helps someone else!
    Thanks all!
