When I click on the name of the font, I just get a huge page of code.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

I know how to find the font on my computer once its downloaded.
My problem is there's no option to download, just a bunch of codes on a very long page.

I appreciate the link--I really do. I even read through it--twice.
But I don't think that is the solution.
Or maybe I'm having a Bad "computer" day.

Please will someone else try to download any font, to see if they get the same reaction?

Teryl confused

Gosh, this has to be frustrating. I downloaded Avignon and it worked. I know that doesn't help a lot. Sorry you're having trouble. Someone smarter than me will be checking in soon I'm sure.

Thanks for trying. Really appreciate it.
I clicked on Avignon since you had good luck and
here is a very small sample of what I see when I click on any of the font names:

������0GPOSܚ���A���RLTSH� g��������OS/2��,I������`VDMXq9x���x���cmapͤ�H��!����cvt �����; ��Pfpgmlju��%\��


This code goes on and on and on.
Anyone know what this means?
And how I can get the fonts to download?

Thanks in advance,

Teryl

Hello! lachen Do you see a "save link as" option when you right click? (as opposed to "save image as") You might be able to save the font file this way. I just tried it on my computer and it appeared to work... as a work around, because the single click also worked for me too. Good luck!

Okay, finally got this figured out--thanks so much OrangeShooz.

I have to right click, hit "save link as"
Then I can download.

A left click only gives me a page full of code.

Whew! That took a bit of work to figure out.

I've never downloaded fonts this way before, so I learned something new.

Thanks everyone for your patience with me.

Teryl
