    On a Windows computer they're in C:\Windows\Fonts.

    All the fonts installed by PS are in the C:\Windows\Fonts directory.
    I believe you can add new fonts to PS and put them in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Fonts but I'm not sure.

    there is no C:\Program Files\Common Files\Fonts in cs5.

    only

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\FontsRequired

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\FontsRecommended

    in cs5

    You may be right.
    I have those two directories but also a "Fonts" directory
    I also have CS3 installed and "Fonts" could be there because of CS3.

    This info from Adobe lists the required and optional fonts for CS5.
    As I understand it the Adobe fonts installed in C:\Windows\Fonts will be available for all programs.

    If you move them to the appropriate C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\ location they will only load and be available when you open an Adobe program.

    I don't know Bob, you'll have to experiment.
    Download 2 new fonts, drop one in each of the directories and see which one shows up in PS.

    The Windows fonts folder is what you use to add new fonts. The fastest way is Control Panel-Fonts. Drop the new font in that folder and restart PS, it will then be available for use.

    Has anyone found away of getting the font in to PS without using the window fonts

    I got a font pack of 5000 fonts but when I load in to window it take twice as long to load and also lower at most things.

    I have seen on a lot of forums that if you load state in to PS then it runs much better.


    Any Help would be great
