just copy the ttf file in c:/windows/fonts
that's what I thought, but I get this strange windows error message like "font already in use..cannot paste here".
And I have closed the Word application..so I have no idea what is troubling it.
Will try again at new PC start up.
strange. try closing any open applications and then copy it.
or better yet. close all applications restart then copy to avoid the font remaining hanged on an app.
I did a different thing: immediately unzip the zipped font into target c:/windows/fonts.
That placed the fantasy.ttf there, but still upon opening Inkscape I can't find /select it from the inkscape fonts selector.
As a matter of fact, there are much more fonts in windows/fonts than in the Inkscape collection. So I guess Inkscape is not picking them from there.
Or maybe it does but only for a prespecified selected few... so I need to break that open, i guess.
