    Importing TrueType Fonts Into Marquee

     I want to Import some additional TrueType fonts into Marquee.

    Is the way to do this: open the Control Panel, go to the Fonts Folder, and add them there, and  Marquee will see them via Windows? Or, is it done within Marquee?

    Also, I have seen free TrueType Fonts advertised for download on the Internet. I don't feel comfortable downloading from an unknown source that will go into my Avid. Isn't it possible for a downloaded TrueType Font file to have a virus? Does anyone know where I can purchase TrueType Fonts? Thanks.

    Hi,

    Yes, that's how you do it.  I have no idea about virus issues, but I'd be wary, too.

    good luck,

    Re: Importing TrueType Fonts Into Marquee

     It's not easy to encode a virus into a TTF or OTF file.  The concern that I would have about free font downloads is whether they are truly free.  I have encountered fonts that bear uncanny similarities to commercial products with the copyright and creator fields blanked.

    That said, there's a heap of font suppliers out there.  Adobe have a range of font libraries in both ATM and OTF formats.  OTF should be able to be handled by Marquee.  You could also search for URW, who make complete font families using the original foundry names.  Letraset have a huge range of stylish fonts available for download.  Larabie offer both commercial and free fonts and are very good.

    The problem really is where do you stop.  Go to MyFonts which is a site run by Bitstream, themselves a major font supplier.  They list a large number of font foundries.
