If I download a certain font and it goes into Font Book, can I utilize it in Word?

How does Font Book work?
Is there another way to go about this?

Yes, in my experience word scans Font Book and uses every font in there. But I am using Office 2008 so it could be diffrant from 2004. I only used that for a few weeks, total. Never dug around in that one too much.

Bummer, I don’t see it. I have 2004, by the way.

let us test it, open text edit, press command T, see if it’s in there

It is. If I could just get it in Word, I’d be stoked.

ok, so it’s active and all, uhm, well, sounds like the standard techie answer, but…reboot?

Iwa- you rock!

It should be automatic. At least it is for me .

It did after I rebooted. Guess I’ll try that first next time.
