Thread: Openoffice.org fonts
11-11-2006, 12:02 PM #1Openoffice.org fonts
So I have installed x11 and openoffice.org on my MacBook. It is running well and seems to be largely compatible with MS Office. However, the font selection is not what I am used to. Is there a way to get ahold of Times New Roman and Arial for OOo writer?

Have you installed the latest version of OpenOffice (2.0.4)? If you haven't, you should upgrade to it. It works much better than the previous versions and I think it has more fonts pre-installed.
If you still need new fonts after upgrading to OOo 2.0.4, you can download fonts for free from http://www.webpagepublicity.com/free...html#FreeFonts
To install the fonts into OpenOffice 2.0, control-click or right-click on the OpenOffice.org 2.0.app. Select "Show Package Contents." Open the "Contents" folder, then copy or move the fonts into the "MacOS ---> share ---> fonts ---> truetype" folder. The next time you launch OpenOffice, your newly installed fonts will be listed in the fonts menu.

If you upgrade to OpenOffice.org 2.0.4, you will find that you will be asked to convert your current fonts for use with OpenOffice.org, the first time you launch OpenOffice.org. There is no need to go into the package contents of ooo, if the fonts have already been installed prior to ooo running for the first time.
