If you are experiencing one of the following font installation issues, please continue with the steps below to resolve the concern:
**Please note, fonts sometimes have different names in the software font list than they do in the store. The initials of the artist are often at the front of the font name, causing them to be in a different location in the Text Style list than the customer is expecting. For example, Jersey Font, by Lori Whitlock, appears in the font list as LW Jersey.
Some fonts contained under a font family are listed as a style option when the main font name is selected in the Text Style font list. If the font you are attempting to access happens to be from a family of fonts (where there are variations of the same font family name), locate the main parent font name in the Text Style font list and then locate the alternate font options in the style list located in the panel, within a drop-down arrow by the B I U options.
If you are missing fonts, or any other purchased content, from the Silhouette Design Store, you can follow the steps listed here to make sure all of your purchases download to your library, https://www.silhouetteamerica.com/faq/solution/recovering-download-content
If the font was purchased or downloaded from a 3rd party source, not from the Silhouette Design Store, you will simply need to ensure the font is installed fully on the computer. In order to be automatically utilized by Silhouette Studio, the font type must be True Type (.ttf) or Open Type (.otf).
To manually install a font to your computer, you may use the steps below.
Install the font on a PC:

NOTE: Steps 1-5 will only work for fonts downloaded from the Silhouette Design Store. If the font was obtained from another source, it will not be installed into the Fonts section of the library. 3rd party fonts may simply be installed into the Fonts directory of the computer and then the software closed and re-opened. These will appear in the Text Style font list only.
Many glyphs are accessible using the glyphs panel within the Designer Edition of Silhouette Studio. At present, Sihouette Studio does not support all available glyph libraries utilized by font creators. All available glyphs can be accessed through your computers Font Book (Mac) or Character Map (PC). To access these glyphs, follow the steps below:
Your text should show up after following these steps. If it does not, again please note that there is a limitation to how much the Silhouette Studio® program can accept being pasted and you may need to copy and paste smaller strings of text rather than a larger section of text all at once.
