The font is free. You don't need to buy a license to use it. The sacrifice of an infant at the Summer Solstice in three weeks should be sufficient, or you could buy a lap dance for a homeless person, if you don't have an altar and ceremonial dagger.

Re: Quotes not appearing in MS Word:

Since you mentioned that the text reverted to Times New Roman when you typed the quotes in MS Word, you are probably using Word 2000 or 2003. Try doing this in Word:

Menu Bar -> Tools -> Autocorrect... -> 'Autoformat As You Type' tab -> ' Replace as you type' section: Put a check in the box for "Straight quotes" with "smart quotes" -> click OK -> Save the document.

In Word 2007, (and probably in later versions), Click the 'Microsoft' button in the upper left hand corner of the Word window -> Word Options -> Proofing -> 'Autocorrect Options...' tab -> 'Autoformat as you type' tab -> Put a check in the box for "Straight quotes" with "smart quotes" -> click OK -> Save the document.

It would be easier to remember, if we just called him SELECTA.

May 11, 2013 at 01:31  [reply]  I need this font for free

I probably have a quarter million, (or more), commercial fonts that I didn't pay for. Most of them are still in .zip archives that I've never opened. Some I install, and try them out in a Microsoft Word document, or I just open them with my font editor, and study the workmanship. I don't see anything wrong with that. To me, they're more valuable than the disk space they occupy, but I would probably only buy CA Subbacultcha if I had to pay for any of them.

If I was using one of the fonts for a commercial purpose, I would buy it, even if I already owned a bootleg copy. The way I see it, when you buy a commercial font, you are purchasing the right to use the font to generate income, rather than purchasing the digital information contained in the .ttf or .otf file. Since the only graphic design that I do is making free fonts for other people to use, I don't foresee the need to buy any licenses anytime soon. I realize that not everyone shares my Libertarian views on this.

No, the first two are mimes.

Manfred Klein retired from font design in early 2008, to care for his wife, who was very ill. Information I received from a third party suggested that he was ill himself, possibly with Alzheimer's Disease, or similar, (his English was poor; I believe the quote was 'he was becoming confused').

His fonts should be considered free for personal use, and Donationware for commercial use, ie: he would like you to donate a sum of your choice to a charity of your choice, if you use one of his fonts commercially. Doctors Without Borders is a suggested charity.

You can use his fonts for artwork on a music CD. You can't include any of his fonts on a compilation CD of fonts that would be sold commercially.

Bookman Old Style - depress the Alt key, type 7, (or 249, or 250), from the number pad, release Alt.

Installing fonts on a machine outside of C://?

I like to work sometimes at my school and I need to use some fonts that aren't on the machines here. Unfortunately the C:// has restricted access and I am unable to install any new fonts on there without admin permission.
Is there any way to use some other drive to read fonts?

You could embed the font in an MS Word document on a computer that doesn't have installation restrictions, attach the document to an e-mail addressed to yourself, then open the e-mail and download the attachment at the school. This assumes that the font(s) you want to use allow embedding. You can only embed one font per document.

I wrote a tutorial on embedding in post #7 of this thread:

You could use the font in MS Word with the Orientation changed from Portrait to Landscape.

Feb 28, 2013 at 02:01  [reply]  question about personal use

dangertaylor, if I understand you correctly, You would use the fonts for school work, work that helps you obtain academic credit, but no financial compensation. The work created for the school project would have no commercial value. If this is the case, that's sort of the textbook definition of personal use. The fact that you are a design student, as opposed to a 7th grader, is irrelevant. I don't know of any font that is free for those under 18 years of age, for example.

Having said that, not all designers would agree. If there are conditions attached to the use of a font, that information SHOULD be included in the header, (the version, designer and copyright information shown at the top of font when opened in preview, below the file size). Frequently the terms of use are in a separate read me or license document included in the .zip file at Dafont.

I say the terms SHOULD be included in the header, even if there is a read me or license file, because there are many, many font download sites to which no one submits fonts, but they add new downloads taken from other sites, often with just the .ttf or .otf file made available for download.

For example, if you Google Candy Inc font, (by Billy argel), you will find dozens of sites hosting this font, but I think Billy only submitted the font to Dafont, Fontspace, and his home page. All, or almost all, of the other sites are using his font on their site without his permission, and perhaps without his knowledge. Many font download .zips, as prepared by the designer, also include artwork or character guides, which are omitted by the fly by night sites that save bandwidth by omitting the non font files.

Hi, Gabriella77, you could send a private message to Lauren Thompson, the designer of Champagne & Limosines: She visits dafont often, and posts in the forums using the nickname PseudoNympho. If you have purchased a commercial license to use Champagne & Limosines, she would probably be able to help you with the problem you're experiencing. If you haven't purchased a license, you should probably have done that first, before providing a link to where you're using it commercially.

Manfred Klein made a number of fonts with 'grid lines'. You can scroll through the one that are on dafont: or look further through his Fonteria at TypOasis: The site link on his dafont page is to his last batch of fonts prior to his retirement. I don't think there are any 'grid' fonts on that page.

Manfred retired from type design in 2008, and no longer has any presence on the Internet, so there is absolutely no chance that he will personally respond to any requests. I believe that all of his fonts in circulation are free for personal use/ donationware, meaning that a donation to charity is requested, but not required, if used commercially. He designed thousands of fonts, so I can't point you toward any specific ones by name.

I think you would like something like this:

but I think those exist only as commercial vectors.

Wow, I think I could see myself spending a year doing a font of one of those alphabets, but it would look awesome, even at four points. The only comment I'd get is some guy bitching because there's no Euro symbol...

Well, excuuuuuse me, Mr Nine Million downloads. You can't blame a guy for trying to shill his 2 downloads-a-day technically precise ugly font.

How come the text display for all the Myfonts links is FineAss Girls? I'm pointing the finger at claudeserieux.

Very close to a 'single line' font:
