@ toto@k22: He's using Mac OS X, if that's any help.
Take a look at some of the fonts in the Fancy -> Old School Theme: http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=104&page=1
Oh, okay, great! So it was option #2 ("or should I put the message in the font description and hope they notice it, do it, and remove that part of the message?"). Thanks!
In your experience, do they remove your request from the "note of the author" section before posting it?
Yes, the webmaster followed the request, and did not include the request in the Note of the Author
Lee, when you submit a new font, you can add an instruction to the webmaster in the Note of the Author section, for custom text display. On my most recent submission, I requested that the banner display be in all capitals.
This appears to be hand drawn by someone who doesn't know how to spell Ocean. My opinion is based on the inconsistent base line and letter heights, and the differences between the two A's.
If the image is in black and white, the quality of a .tff, (or png), will be substatially better than a .jpeg. Open any monochrome image with MS Paint, then save it as a .jpeg, and a fair bit of the black and white will change to various shades of grey. A .jpeg is the picture equivalent of a 96 kbits/sec .mp3.
The text isn't large enough nor clear enough for someone to help you identify the font being used. Try to find a better quality image. If you do that, your question will be moved to the Font Identification
The font looks a lot like Tahoma
. You should have that one as part of your Windows 7 operating system.

I don't know how to extract the zip files, I tried to, any directions to do that?
When you open the font, there's an install button at the top
, a .zip file is a compressed archive containing one or my files. Its file size is smaller than the size(s) of the file(s) contained inside.
If you're going on a vacation, you might sit on top of a suitcase to compress the contents. A .zip file is similar to that.
When you download a file from Dafont, does the icon for the file look like three books, with a belt around them, or like a file folder with a zipper on it, or something else? If it looks like the folder with a zipper, right-click the file, and select "Extract" from the menu. This will open a dialog box, with simple instructions on how to get the files out of the .zip into a folder, usually within the same folder where the .zip file is located. The contents of a .zip file downloaded from Dafont will be a .ttf or .otf font file, and often a 'read me' text document, and sometimes some additional files, (.pdf, image file, etc.). You install the extracted .ttf or .otf file, and none of the others.
If the icon looks like three books, double click the icon, and a Window will open, with Extract as one of the options. Select Extract, and click "Ok". The files that were in the .zip should then appear in a folder that has the same name as the .zip file. Install the .ttf or .otf file that's inside the folder.
Did you extract the font(s) from the .zip files before trying to install them?
, your question was already answered by PhontPhreak in the comments section of the font: http://www.dafont.com/font-comment.php?file=phontphreaks_handwriting
Thanks all for the kind comments!
My handwriting font may be used for commercial use, no problem.
It would be nice though, if you could send me a jpeg of what you have done with it.
Have fun eveybody!
If a font is designated as Free
, you don't have to ask the designer for permission to use it for commercial purposes. If you can find contact information for the designer, most will be appreciative if you send them an image link, so they can see how you used the font they made, but this is optional.
Most freeware font designers just want to give something back to the design community for the free fonts they've downloaded from other people. Adding a nice comment on the details page is as much as they hope to receive from anyone. I have more than 800,000 downloads at Dafont, and I've only received about 10 comments, (not including my own comments). A quick glance at the most popular downloads here suggests that one comment per 80,000 downloads is about average.

, you could also do this:
1) Install the font on your home computer.
2) Create an MS Word document containing the character set for Open-Dyslexic
the font in the MS Word document, and e-mail it to yourself as an attachment.
4) Download the e-mail attachment where you work. You'll be able to use the document in the same way as if the font was installed on the work computer. You just won't be able to copy/paste the text from the embedded document to another MS Word doc. You could, however, download more than one copy of the embedded e-mail attachment doc.
*If you don't know how to embed a font, read the third and fourth paragraphs in post #7 of this thread: http://www.dafont.com/forum/read/78124/why-won-t-this-font-work-when-i-try-to-make-it-bold
rettygirl78, I don't know Windows 7, but the procedure should be similar to how it would be done with XP. In your operating system directory folder, (or the Control Panel), you should be able to find a folder called Fonts. When you open it, select the Details View option, as the font names are frequently not the same as the file names. When you find the ones you want to remove, right-click the file name; there should be an option to uninstall.
, all of the fonts on Dafont are free to download. Dafont does not collect money oh behalf of any of the designers whose fonts are hosted here. Read below if you want to attach a licensing requirement, for commercial use.
Anyone who has uploaded a font at Dafont will have a link at the top of every Dafont Window named "My Account". Click that link, and on the page that shows your font(s), you'll see a link called "update" to the right of the name of the font. Click that link, change the information in the list box for "License", then click the "Submit" button at the bottom. You can also use the update link if you want to add some artwork, or add/ change the 'Note of the Author'.

I believe he wants to know the font used for 2013, but I don't speak babelfish, so I can't be sure.
If a font is free, you can use it for personal or commercial use, without paying anything to the creator. You also don't have to ask first before using the font.
If you are using a free font available at dafont, adding a comment, and perhaps an image or other link to the font in use would be appreciated by any designer.
You're not allowed to 'knock off' a free font, (ie: rename it, claiming that you are the designer), which you could do for something that's public domain.
As far as I can tell, you want help with the forgery of a gun license. I'm sure there are lots of people who want to help you do that.
, this is the link to which malvolio
was referring: http://www.dafont.com/soft.php#3
Scroll about half way down the page, and you'll see a list of several font creation softwares, with prices, features, etc.
Most people start with FontCreator
, because it's relatively inexpensive, and Hi-Logic
offers a free 30 day, fully functional trial version. Most professional designers use Studio5
, which is quite expensive. I have both, but I use ScanFont 3
almost exclusively. Unfortunately, they no longer sell it; ScanFont 5
is a completely different product, that works as a plug-in for Studio5
is free, but my brief attempt to use it was unproductive; it seems like you need a lot more technical knowledge than I have to understand how to use it properly.
The word font in English has several meanings. With reference to typography, it means a productive source.
so you suggesting just make my own font?
He's saying that you didn't download a font called Chalkduster
on dafont, because there is no font here by that name.
Did you mean Chalkdust
The character guide is from fonts101. I don't download anything there anymore, because they switched the downloads to .exe file types, and I don't trust the site to open one.
