How to use fonts in Silhouette Studio

To use a font in Silhouette Studio, you need to install the font on your computer.
Install a font on a PC:

  1. Download the font file to your computer. Fonts often come in a compressed format, such as .zip or .rar, so you will need to extract the font files before installing them.
  2. Right-click the extracted font file and select “Install” from the context menu. This will install the font on your PC.

Alternatively, you can also install fonts using the Windows Font Settings menu:

  1. Open the Windows Start menu and search for “Font settings” or “Fonts”.
  2. Click “Font settings” or “Fonts” from the search results to open the Font Settings menu.
  3. Click “Add a font” to browse for the font file on your computer.
  4. Select the font file and click “Install”. The font will be installed and added to your list of available fonts.

Install a font on a Mac:

  1. Download the font file to your computer. Fonts often come in a compressed format, such as .zip or .rar, so you will need to extract the font files before installing them.
  2. Double-click the extracted font file to open it. This should reveal one or more font files with file extensions like .ttf, .otf, or .woff.
  3. Double-click the font file(s) you want to install. This will open the font preview window, where you can preview the font and install it.
  4. Click the “Install Font” button at the bottom of the preview window. You may be prompted to enter your Mac user password to authorize the installation.

Note: If you want to install fonts system-wide, so they are available to all users on your Mac, drag the font files to the “Fonts” folder in the “Library” folder of your Mac’s main hard drive.
