Font Installation




Downloading Delve Fonts typefaces
After the purchase/checkout process has been successfully completed, you will receive an email presenting you with a link from which to download your new Delve Fonts. The link expires after 30 days or 5 attempts to download—whichever comes first. If you have experienced a problem down­loading the Delve Fonts you have licensed, please contact Delve Fonts.


IMPORTANT: Before you begin to install fonts; make certain your user account on the target machine is an Administrator account.


Extracting files from .zip archives
The font files from Delve Fonts have been compressed in a .zip archive for faster and more reliable downloads. The files must be extracted from the archive in order to be installed on your computer.
  • For Mac users, Stuffit Expander is a free utility to decompress .zip archives.

  • For PC users, 7-Zip can be used to decompress the .zip archive (get 7-Zip for free from: 7-zip.org).
Once decompressed, the .OTF font files in the Font Software folder will now display an ‘O’ (OpenType) icon and are ready to be installed. Also, be sure to create a back-up copy of your new typefaces from Delve Fonts.


Operating System requirements for Mac & PC
Windows 7, Vista, XP, MacOS X, or a compatible OS that supports use of OpenType font (.OTFs - typically displaying an 'O' icon).


Installing fonts in Mac OS X

    Using Finder
    The simplest method for installing fonts in Mac OS X is using Finder. Here’s how to do it:
  1. Navigate to your User account on your Mac. From your user folder, go to: Library > Fonts.
  2. From the font package you downloaded from Delve Fonts, select only .OTF font files in the Font Software folder that you wish to install.
  3. Drag-and-drop the .OTF font files into your Fonts folder. Open an application (or re-start it, if it was already open) and begin using your new fonts.
    Using Font Book
  1. Launch the FontBook application that comes with Mac OS X.
  2. In the ‘File’ menu of Font Book, select ‘Add Fonts’. Navigate to where you saved the font files you wish to add and select them. To select more than one font, press and hold down the SHIFT or COMMAND key while clicking on multiple font files. Now click on the ‘Open’ button.

  3. You should now be able to see the fonts you have just installed listed alphabetically in the ‘User’ collection (find the Collection column on the left side).

Installing fonts in Windows 7 and Windows Vista

To install a single font, it’s quicker to simply right-click on the font file, selecting ‘Install’ from the menu.

If you are installing multiple fonts, it may be easier to use the Fonts Control Panel. Follow the steps below to open the Fonts Control Panel.
  1. From the ‘Start’ menu, select ‘Control Panel’ then select ‘Appearance and Personalization’.
  2. Next, select ‘Fonts’.
  3. Locate and select the font files you wish to install. Drag and drop them into the Fonts Control Panel (where you see other font files listed).

Installing fonts in Windows XP

  1. Open the Fonts Control Panel: From the 'Start' menu select 'Control Panel', then select ‘Appearance and Themes’.
  2. Next, select ‘Fonts’ from the ‘See Also’ panel on the left.
  3. In the ‘File’ menu of the Fonts Control Panel, select ‘Install New Font...’
  4. Navigate to where you saved the font files you wish to add and select them. To select more than one font, press and hold down the CTRL key, while clicking on multiple font files. Now click on the ‘OK’ button.
