    Default Fonts and Just HOW MANY can one have or install and

    OK I have gone fontbalistic!! I have tried not to get too many because I remember from the "old" days you cannot install too many???
    Is this still true? If so how many can you install? Is there a way to put fonts in their own folder open them and then in your program be able to use without installing? I have windows 7 and use gimp.
    Is there a font program that organizes your fonts by description?? Like eroded, script, etc....

    Thanks in advance for your help on this....I have a ton of fonts i love just sitting unzipped because I dont want to crash my puter :-)

    i NEVER install new fonts because i've had crashes happen. i use fontloader by moon software. i'm trying to find a download link.... WHEW i finally found it! http://www.brothersoft.com/fontloader-160511.html

    the program allows you to load & unload fonts onto your OS without installing them HTH!

    Thanks for the link. One question before I install this one. I have font explorer. It allows you load fonts..(from folder)..but then they dont show up in gimp when I have them highlighted in font explorer...so I am wondering if it will be the same or if there are different kinds of loads??
    Or...can I select the font i want to use install then uninstall as soon as I am finished using it??
    I hate to install too many programs as I always seem to have trouble as the registry keys get changed LOL!!

    i'm thinking yes? fontloader runs as a little icon in the bottom right corner of your screen. when you click on it, a fly-out menu appears and you load your fonts from there before you start your editing program.

    Ah...now there is a key thing to remember...you need to choose fonts before opening your program so that they will be available...hmmm. I am not creative enough to know where I am going with a page that I would be able to have my fonts all picked...oh.......lightbulb...you could save your page...(since I do text last) ...decided on fonts ...close program...load fonts...reopen program...use loaded fonts....( am i getting this?? )
    Thank you for your patience I seem to be a bit on the dense side this morning!! :-)

    you can load them all at the same time if you want. it's not going to hurt anything ;) i usually load them all first thing in the morning, then restart my computer at night when i go to bed (which unloads the fonts). i have TONS of fonts and have never had any problems from this program - or crashes!

    no problemo!

    I keep forgetting just that one important step over and over...so I went to d/l the link you gave me and it is what I have..LOL..font explorer.
    So...now I am thinking...i "finally" must have the correct directions to be able to use..
    Load the fonts into font explorer...restart computer...next time I open gimp they will be available to use even though they are not installed?
    LOLOL I am going to have to do something special for you for having SO much patience with me this morning! :-)

    Crap then I posted the wrong link sorry! They aren't the same program. Ill see if I have a zip on my EHD somewhere. Moon software discontinued shell tools and fontloader so its really hard to find online

    And no. If you restart the fonts auto-unload lol!

    If you cannot find that fontloader do you think you can just install and unintsall each time you use? WOuld that hurt your puter?
    I am going to make something for you because you have been SO good to me today and I feel I have taken WAY too much of your time.
