Installing OpenType Fonts
(Windows 95, 98, ME, NT)
To use the font, you will need to follow each step.
Please back up all your fonts to prevent Replacement charges!
You will need WinZip to unzip any PC Compressed files. If you don't have WinZip, you can download the free Evaluation version at http://www.winzip.com. Please do this before going to step 2. If you are not sure how to use WinZip, use the Help button on the WinZip once that it is installed.
Adobe Type Manager (ATM)
You will need ATM, version 4.1 or later, to install OpenType fonts on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT. If you do not have ATM 4.1, a lite version is available at no charge. You can download it clicking here.
Note: If you are not sure if you have ATM or not, you can check your system by going to the windows explorer icon and follow this path if you have it.
Note: do not confuse ATM with Adobe Acrobat - it is not the same thing.
If you are downloading ATM the first time:
- Download it to your desktop
- Unzip it to your program files
- It will start installing by asking questions. Continue clicking Yes or OK
- The file will default right into your Program files. Once you installed ATM, and you were noted to restart your system, then you are ready for Step 3.

Double Click on the .zip font file.
- Click "I Agree"
- Click Extract
