"Identity Plates and Watermarks in LR 4.2"


US
          

I recently acquired a new computer and, after much ado, hired a tech who, I believe, sucessfully migrated my catalogs, preferences and presets from the old to the new machine. After the transition, I noted that my Identity Plate font had changed. I followed the instructions for doing so in Scott Kelby's book on LR4 and found that while the font setting read, "Edwarian Script IPT" the font was in a block style. When I clicked on the font drop down box to change it to Edwarian, I could no longer find this style in the list. I experienced the same problem when trying to switch back my Watermark; Edwarian Script did not appear on the list.

Was Edwarian scrapped in an updated version of LR4 or is there something I'm not doing to get my favorite font style? As always your help is greatly appreciated.

Probably you obtained that font with some software that has not been installed on your new system (yet). It's been too many years since I've used Windows seriously, but my impression is that you might be able to extract the .ttf file from the old system and install it on the new system - and then the font will be available to you.

Just copy the font to the Font Directory located at C:\Windows\Fonts which will install it for the system to use. As Brian already said, fonts have the .TTF extension. Your old system, if functional, is a good source for the font. Copy it to a jump drive (USB drive).

If for some reason this does not install the font for use, check this article from Microsoft:

It's so embarrasing to admit just how I'm all thumbs when it comes to the very basics of computer operation but thanks to ya'll's help I fumbled around and was successful in installing the font from the old machine. I'll say it again, it took some doing! One more time the wonderful folks at Nikonians have saved the day. Without a doubt this is the finest organization I've ever been affiliated with.

Don't worry about that. You should have seen me trying to set up a wet darkroom a few years ago. Talk about the blind leading the blind - in the dark!!!

And there are two of ua??? Anyway, took a look at your gallery. Really nice and interesting composition and, in some, timing was perfect! Enjoyed your B&Ws especially. Also loved the street photo with the handler having a bit of a time with his dog who was having an intense moment with the driver.
