I can download them but when I try to use them, I can't change the wording to what I want. Is it something I'm missing?

I've been having issues running the Safari Browser on my Mac with this website.  When I spoke with customer service, they had me switch to Firefox which eliminated the issues.   If you are using FIREFOX on you MAC to download, you have to hold the "OPTION" key and click on the font.  Using "CONTROL" does not work in FIREFOX.

IMPORTANT FOR MAC USERS> MAC OS X does not have a Systems Folder that you can change.

You have to download onto your desktop and from there you can drag it into your LIBRARY folder on your Hard Drive.

I don't get it.....perhaps there is a part of my brain I'm missing.

I have vista, I've read the instructions for windows, and honestly....just don't get it....tired it, doesn't work for me.

Sometimes I really do hate computers.

signed

going crazy

goodnite for now :(

I'm with Nixx I just do not get it. Guess I will go back to cutting letters. But then what good is it to be a member, and to have so much more I can work with. I'll keep on trying....

I have windows 7. With no problem I downloaded the font "Believe" to my desktop. You said DRAG it from the desktop to my Font folder.I don't know how to do that because it does not show up on the same screen that I can just drag. I know! I am computer illiterate!  In order for me to get to the font folder I have to go to start>control panel>appearances & personalization>font. In other words how do I marry them together? Help Please

I have a PC.  I was able to download fonts to desktop, but when I try to move to font library, it says that this appears to not be a legitimate font.  Ugh!  Help!  What's going on?

Thanks.
