How to send fontsacross the internet, via Email or FTP

Home > MyHelp > Tutorials > Sending Fonts

Action 1: How to Save Fonts ready to send across the internet

Step 1: Open the Windows Fonts directory

· Navigate to 'C:\WINDOWS\Fonts' and select the font that you wish to send. (If this is not the correct folder for your network or system, also try this.
Open the Start Button / Settings / Control Panel / Fonts.)

If you see a message 'These files are hidden, you should not modify. Take care in the following steps. This is because of server permissions.

Step 2: Find the Font Name you want to send over the internet. Click Once to highlight and select this font.

Step 3: After highlighting the font, On the top title menu of the window, ·click on the 'Edit' menu button and select/click 'Copy'
Edit > Copy.

Sending Fonts over the internet, Find your Windows / Fonts folder, highlight the font you want to send, choose Edit from the top menu, Copy the highlighted font to the desktop

Click, dont hover, on the 'Edit' menu button and then click 'Copy'
--Why do I click and not hover through Windows? When you click through Windows Menus and its Options, it becomes a command driven task.--

Step 4: Click your Desktop Icon to return to the Desktop. Create a temporary folder named "MyQuickFonts"
To create a new temporary folder on your desktop, Right Click on any space around the Desktop > New > Folder. An Icon will appear that you type in the name MyQuickFonts. Click anywhere on the desktop to create or just hit enter. You now have a temporary folder that you can place any quantity of fonts into without affecting your system.

Step 5: Open your new Folder named MyQuickFonts, Then navigate again to Edit and Paste.

Step 5-A Optional Shortcut: (ie. your desktop) You can also paste the font clicking the folder once only, and then past the font into the folder by either pressing 'Ctrl + V' or 'Right Click > Paste'. Recommended for experienced folder users.

Action 2: Sending Fonts over the internet through Email

Step 6: Sending the Font via Email

1. Open up your email program such as Outlook and compose a 'New Message'

2. Click on the 'Attach' button and then navigate to where you saved the font in the temporary folder which you created. (attach the entire folder or each font as you like).

3. Attach the font, write the message details and hit send. The attached font will travel with the email.

Actions 3: Sending Fonts to another computer using FTP File Transfer Protocol.

Using a program such as SmartFTP or CuteFTP, log into to your server or domain. To send to our computer, you must telephone us, we will email you the login details.

1. Find the general directory or client file name folder on the server you are going to upload to. Typically this would be found under /var/www/html/ThenTheSpecificFolderNameYouWantToUploadTo/

2. Make sure you have both a 'Local Browser' open in the FTP program AND a 'Server' Browser open on the Site that you logged into. You will need to find folders on your computer and on the servers computer or directory.

3. Click and Drag from the Local Browser your Folder Named 'MyQuickFonts' into the Server Browser Folder/Directory. The file will start to transfer across your internet connection directly to the other computer.

4. To Download a Font Folder from the Server to your computer using FTP, reverse the steps above.

Actions 4: Installing Fonts on you computer after Sending over the internet

After you have either received via email or downloaded via FTP your fonts or folder of fonts, complete these actions to install fonts onto your computer.

Step 7. Create a new folder named: AddMyQuickFonts in under your C:\or D:\ or My Documents. You can not as easily add fonts to your system folders from the desktop as server permissions may be set to tight security, so a new folder is required that is located away from the Desktop.

Step 8. Move the downloaded fonts into your new folder named AddMyQuickFonts.
1. If from Email, click the font inside the attachment, File Save As. Do not change the extension or file name here. It will create problems if you try to rename the font at this stage.
2. If from FTP, Move the font from the Client Folder to the AddMyQuickFonts Folder. When complete, go to Step 9.

Step 9. Open your Windows Start Button> Settings > Control Panel > Fonts > a window will open.

Step 10. On the top of the new window, Click File > Install New Font > a window will open.

Step 11. Choose Which Drive and Which Directory Folders on your system the folder you created named AddMyQuickFonts is located at. Click once and inside the font name list, your downloaded or received email font should be ready for installation.

IMPORTANT SELECTION: On the install font window, choose 'Copy fonts to Fonts Folder'. If this selection is not checked, the font may not be accessible in all programs.
Use this choice to save memory and cache history for certain programs. Eg. Photoshop, CorelDraw etc. If you are experienced in Font Management, you can increase computing power with font management. See MyHelp Pages for any forum postings.

Step 12. Click once to highlight the font, Then Click OK. The font will begin installing.

If you need more information, try any popular search engine term 'How to use FTP'.

Working Tips and Reasons: You created a new folder named MyQuickFonts so that you could send many fonts at once in an email attachment. The best reason, is for using FTP File Transfer Protocols. Nothing is more annoying to a graphic designer than to upload a font named: Example:m348u.ttf it means nothing, where as, receiving a folder with the font included with your named folder is easy to manage. We can store those fonts in your EG: ClientFiles/BobWidgets/BobsQuickFonts' on our systems and not clutter ours or your recipients computer or database.
