I have the BW fonts installed on my apple. They show up in Font Book. But they don't appear in Office 2008. Anyone know how to deal with this?

Edit: I'm not sure why Font Book said they were installed, since they weren't found in my library/fonts folder. I copied the Windows fonts in there, and now they appear in Word. :)

Help! I am running Bibleworks using Boot Camp (a giant pain!) , so I've had to install bwgrkl separately in Leopard. It appears as a separate folder in Font Book, but I can't figure out how to get it to work in Word 08. How did you get it to show up there?

I figured it out! You have to copy it into the Microsoft folder that appears in the library to get it appear in Word. So follow these steps:

1) save fonts to desktop

2) open Mac hard drive

3) open the Library folder

4) open the Fonts folder

5) find the Microsoft folder

6) drag the desired fonts from the desktop and drop them in the Microsoft folder

7) get really excited that you found this post and it didn't take you 8 hours to figure out how to do it!
