How do I add fonts to PSP?
To add fonts to PSP you must add them to Windows, PSP reads all True Type Fonts that are properly installed in Windows. To install them: Go to Control Panel> Fonts> File> Install New Font
The proper way to install new fonts into PSP is the same way you install any font into windows. If it is installed in windows, and it is a TTF(true type font), it will be available for use in PSP.
With version 6, because of the added vector capabilities, you must have the variation of the font installed as well, if you want to use bold, italics, etc. This is not an issue with version 5.
Manage your fonts like a pro!
Paint Shop Pro selects fonts the same way as just about every other Windows program. The list of fonts PSP lets you select from are the fonts the system knows about (minus a few fonts that PSP can't rasterize).
fonts does the system know about?
Another bad thing about having too many fonts installed in C:\Windows\Fonts\ is that every time you boot, Windows loads up all those fonts to use them in applications. This slows down your boot time, and if you are short of memory, it slows down everything you do. Bad.
Fontaholics, "the real savvy font users" keep most of their fonts in other folders, and only have their most essential fonts in C:\Windows\Fonts
Windows won't know about them?
that's anywhere on your system
View your font in a font manager and it becomes available in PSP. Some font managers preload all the fonts in the same directory as the font you're viewing and make them available too, some don't.
