How to Use Fonts in Your Software




For Microsoft Office applications




Select the font from the drop-down list




Once you have installed the fonts on your computer, you can use them in any Microsoft Office application, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Outlook. To do this, simply select the text that you want to apply the font to and then choose the font from the drop-down list on the Home tab. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+F (Windows) or Command+Shift+F (Mac) to access the font list.


Apply the font to your text




After selecting the font, you can adjust its size, color, style, and other attributes using the options on the Home tab. You can also use the Format Painter tool to copy and paste the font formatting from one text to another. To preview how different fonts look like on your text, you can use the Live Preview feature by hovering over the font names on the drop-down list.


For other applications




Check the application's documentation or help menu




If you want to use fonts in other applications, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, or Canva, you need to check their documentation or help menu for specific instructions. Different applications may have different ways of accessing and applying fonts. For example, in Photoshop, you can use the Type tool to create a text layer and then select the font from the Options bar. In Canva, you can use the Text tool to add a text box and then choose the font from the Font menu.


Experiment with different fonts and settings




The best way to learn how to use fonts is to experiment with different fonts and settings. You can try different combinations of fonts, sizes, colors, styles, alignments, and effects. You can also compare how different fonts look like on different backgrounds and layouts. You can use online tools such as Font Pair or Font Joy to find fonts that match well together.
