    How to Create Custom Font with Microsoft Font Maker app in Windows 10


    A font is a graphical representation of text that may include a different typeface, point size, weight, color, or design.

    The Microsoft Font Maker app allows you to use your pen to create a custom font based on the nuances of your own handwriting. Install the fonts you create to add a personal touch to everything you do.

  3. Windows 10 Creators Update fonts issue

    Still broken for the Creators Fall Update, it seems...

    Symptoms we see in Word for custom installed fonts are:

    • Fonts not displaying correctly in the Fonts list.
    • Using a font causes the "Insufficient disk space or memory..." error.

    Custom fonts do not appear in the system Fonts folder, and some standard fonts are greyed out. Attempts to reinstall custom fonts indicate they are already installed.

    Wordpad: custom fonts are invisible in the fonts list. They can be selected by typing their name, but the font type does not display correctly.

    Suggested workarounds have been tried with no success. We're really hoping Microsoft will prioritize this issue, as the media company I work at uses custom fonts heavily.

    As mentioned in this thread already, fonts work fine with pre-1703 Windows 10 versions.
