Installing Shane Matthews font

Hi,

I used the the method in Tom's screenr video to download and install fonts (right clicked on install after download). I don't think I was 100% successful, as they are not appearing in the PowerPoint drop down list of fonts. (I did close and re-open ppt) Is that where I would select them? This is the first time I've tried this.

I also don't know if I needed to download them to a specific folder. I created a folder called Shane and put them there. Extracted... there was one file. Right-clicked and installed. I saw the fonts to the right.

Should I have downloaded them to a Fonts folder, which I saw pictured in one of the other methods?

I was unable to post the question on the screenr page. Post comments was grayed out... :-(

Thanks!

Hi Leslie,

There may be an error in that article--I'm not sure. I initiated the run command, which takes me to the Fonts folder--but my Windows 7 does not display a File menu.I *do* have administrator privileges so it's not that.

I'll try one of Tom's other methods. It does appear that they are not in the right place.

Leslie--

It looks like the fonts were installed after all... except I still have a problem. (I did it again with a different method, and it said "already installed.")

The problem is, I can choose the font from the drop-down menu in Microsoft Word, but the font does not show in PowerPoint.

Suggestions?
