How Do I Add Fonts to Silhouette Cameo?

Adding fonts to your Silhouette Cameo is an easy way to spice up your projects. There are a few different ways to add fonts and it depends on whether you are using a Windows or Apple device. Here’s what you need to know about adding fonts to your Silhouette Cameo.

Using the Silhouette Studio Software:

The easiest way to add fonts is through the Silhouette Studio software. To do this, open the software and click on the “Text” icon on the left-hand side of the screen.

Then, select “Install Fonts” from the top menu bar. This will bring up a window that allows you to browse for and select your font files (.ttf). Once you have selected your font files, click “Open”, and they will be added to your software.

Using a Font Manager:

Another way to add fonts is by using a font manager such as FontExplorer X or NexusFont. With these programs, you can manage all of your installed fonts in one place.

To add fonts using this method, simply drag and drop them into the program window. Once they are added, they will be available for use in any program that is compatible with them.

Using Your Computer’s Fonts Folder:

If all else fails, you can always add your fonts directly into your computer’s Fonts folder. On Windows devices, this folder is usually located in C:\WINDOWS\FONTS.

For Mac devices, it can be found in Macintosh HD > Library > Fonts. To add a font to this folder, simply copy and paste it from its original location into this one.
