    Obtaining a font (xp)

    What is the easiest way of obtaining and keeping a font for use in Word? The Helvetica font is not available and required. Is it possible to obtain from a document that already uses this font? Andy.

    If you have access to another computer on which Helvetica is installed, you can save the document there with the option to embed TrueType fonts (see screenshot below). The font will then be available in the document even if you edit it on a PC that does not have Helvetica installed.

    Helvetica is a copyrighted font, so you cannot just copy it to your PC for general use. Arial, which is available on all Windows PCs, is very similar, by the way.
