Getting & Installing Sanskrit fonts

(3) Installing the fonts (Macintosh)

Now that you have the three font files, you will need to place them where your system can "see" and make use of them.

In operating systems that have it installed, font installation can be easily done using "Font Book". If necessary, use the Finder to display the fonts. Then select all the font icons and double-click on one of them. Font Book should open automatically and display, in suitable windows, what the fonts look like.

Now click "Install Font" in one of the windows. The font will be automatically installed in the Library folder of your home folder. Do the same for the other window. You are done. Please go to Step 4, "Testing the fonts".

If that does not work for you, then try the method immediately underneath.

Even without Font Book, Font installation on a Mac is usually a very simple 'drag and drop' operation. Just drag the fonts to the "System Folder". Click OK when prompted. You are done. Please go to Step 4, "Testing the fonts".

If that does not work for you, then try the method immediately underneath.

If neither of the above two steps work, then your best bet is probably to go to the Apple Support pages. Put a suitable query such as "install fonts" into the search box close to the top at the right (possibly also mentioning your particular OS), and peruse the results. It could be that all you need to do is install an updated version of Font Book. You are done. Please go to Step 4, "Testing the fonts".
