  3. Hi, I have tried to download and install several fonts from fontspace.com using your instructions on how to do this. However, in step 6 when you say to choose the "open with" option and to click "open with 7-Zip File Manager", I am not given the option to "open with". So, I tried just opening it and it brought up the files so then I got to your step 9 in the tutorial and I had the same screen you did but mine did not give me the option to install at the top left. The only options mine had were at the top were done and print. Can you please email me and instruct me on what I may be doing wrong or how I can install these free fonts. My email address is asalerno29@gmail.com. Thanks so much in advance. :)

    1. Sorry that it's giving you problems! Are you on PC or Mac? If you're on PC, which operating system do you have (Windows XP? Vista?) Also, did you install 7-Zip already?

  5. Thanks for the tutorial! I found a manuscript font with lines and dots for my preschoolers but I was unsure how to get it from the 'download' to my 'word program'.
