« Top 10 Reasons to Fall in Love With OpenOffice.org | Main | Backspace, don't Delete, to delete cell contents in OpenOffice Calc Spreadsheets »

February 14, 2007



Appreciate the info, but does not seem to help me. I want a single font, "print dashed" like this one:


so I can prepare worksheets for my 4 year old. For some reason I can't get it to download onto my computer.

Any suggestions or other links would be of help if you have time.



Hi Bill,

I'm not a font expert but in general if you can get it onto your computer you can get it in OpenOffice.org.

I was able to download the print clearly Windows font and get it installed by copying the contents of the unzipped file to my windows\fonts directory.


Apparently Bills have font questions so here's mine...I followed Solveig's instructions to put an unzipped font file in my windows/fonts directory. I restarted open office and still didn't see it. What am I leaving out?

Nevermind...I got it. I tried to drag and drop the font into the fonts directory and it looked liked it worked but obviously didn't. When I went to File>Install I got it loaded in and it was there in Open Office for me.

Hi Bill,

Glad it worked! I guess drag and drop is treated differently than copy and paste, interesting.


Hi all, I am using OOo 2.4.0 on Vista Business and tried to install a font for hours yesterday (copy and paste, drag and drop, install, install with wizard etc.) - with no result, so i gave up. But guess what? When I started my notebook this morning and used OOo, the font was there - HURRAY! So, if nothing should work for u, just try it with restarting the system. Best wishes, me the Noob

I'm trying to import a single TrueType-fontfile with a font (that I have on my computer) into my Open Office. When I try the wizards off-line Font pack intallation it opens the FontOOo.FontOOoLib, but it says something about a "BASIC-runtimeerror".

Any help?


i want to add a font onto open office and i have it unzipped on my computer
i went ot the open office help and it told me how to put fonts onto open office
this is what it said:
1.Go to the {install_path}/program directory.
2.Enter: ./spadmin
3.Click Fonts.
i cant find where the {install_path}/program directory is

help please?

I am not sure what you mean by restarting "quickstarter" could you kindly explain?

Long story short: Added a new font (.ttf file) to the Windows Font file (C:/Windows/Font). Microsoft Works sees it fine. OpenOffice doesn't see it at all.

What's the problem here?

Hi R,

I can only suggest restarting OOo and/or your computer. My TTF fonts in the Fonts directory all show up in OOo.

I updated OpenOffice and it's now recognizing the new font.

Hello. I have downloaded a font from a website that I need for an A level Project. It's on the computer and recognised, but i cant get to it from Open Office.
Please help.

I've downloaded a font and installed it, but the characters only seem available in the Special Characters list! How do I assign characters to keyboard keys??

Hello, I've downloaded and installed a font (another language) into Open Office that, but it only is available in the special characters list! How do I assign the characters to the keyboard keys?

You wrote: Importing Fonts Into OpenOffice.org 2.1

In 2.1 there's a link from the Wizards to an installation site.
Choose File > Wizards > Install Fonts From Web.

In an attempt to do as described above, the "Wizards" menu does not list 'Install Fonts From Web" so I found myself dead in the water after only two selections.

Apparently a difference between your info and my version of 2.1. Any suggestions what I do next?

What do you do for 3.6 version ???

Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.
