How do I get the fonts that I download from the web into VCarve Pro?

Thanks,
Luke

Fonts are installed in the Windows OS. V-Carve picks them up when the program is started.

On a backward related question. I seem to have hundreds of fonts, most of which I did not add. Is there a easy way to view and then delete if desired.

If you are more of a "techie" you can use the file explorer and navigate to "C:\Windows\Fonts". Move any of the unwanted fonts to another folder. Then restart windows.

Can anyone tell me where to acquire this font in the attached picture, the word "Welcome"?

"Salt and Sprices Pro Regular" and "Lady Slippers" both available at MyFonts.com are pretty close. I'm sure there are others but font matching can be a laborious process.
