Hey all,

So seen the spirit runes and mana runes font download on this site. From web research it seems it should be a simple case of download, and the font will then be available to use in word.

When I download, the install button becomes greyed out and it seems to DL ok. If I try to install again it says it is already DL'd and do I want to replace.

But neither font is available in word.

Any ideas please? Clear instructions for someone who is a little techy inept would be welcome! tongue.gif

Using latest word, and windows 10.

And if it is the case that those fonts just don't work, then any other shortcuts people use for printing out the most common scrolls?

Cheers,

Sean

I write out the miracle, highlight all the writing, right click and then open the drop down the font list to the spiritual script on to change the layout... is it not appearing on the drop down list of fonts ?

Nope, not appearing in the list of fonts. Not in the drop down or in the actual font section of Word.

Anything special I am missing to make it DL properly?

No, it 'should' download automatically... if you are struggling later, ping me your email address and I will email you your chosen miracles when I get home from work tonight if this helps you ?

It may be a case of the files not being in the right place. If you hunt around your folders on your pc you should fine one called "fonts", which is where the downloaded files will need to go.

check the downloaded files are not 'zipped'. If they are extract them and the install button should be available.

Thanks all for the advice, few attempts to sort and several reboots later all working!
