Font names in Elegant Handwriting Fonts

Post by ubose » Sat Apr 08, 2017 5:00 pm

I just installed the Elegant Handwriting Fonts package in Windows. What are the names of the fonts so that I can find them in the long list of all fonts installed on my computer? Thank you.

I see the Brouet font, but not Agilo, Nadine, Pietro, or any of the others. How come? I have attached a screen capture of the fonts window.

That's a bug in Windows. As soon as a font declares that it contains at least some Greek characters, Windows changes its display to the one you see.

This has no effect on using the font in an application; it's just the way the Windows Control Panel shows the icons.

I am not worried by the greek symbols in the icon. What i said was that I do not see the Agilo, Nadine, Pietro, or any of the other advertised 29 fonts on my computer after installing Elegant Handwriting Fonts.

From the looks of the font list, you didn't install them. Run fontman.exe, click on the image of a font you like and hit the "Install font" button.

As confirmation, this places a green checkmark on the font image.
