Using a Microsoft Mac 08 font in Iworks 09

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My problem is that I want to use Arial Round Bold for a document I'm working on.

In Office I can use the font in bold and italic as well as regular however in iworks I can only use it as regular.

This is limiting me in terms of formatting. Ideally I'd like to transfer the office font over so I can have this ability in iworks.

I've had a bit of a scout online, but I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to techy stuff. I understand that there are different font types for mac and pc and have had a look at font converters, but at $179, Transtype isn't cheap.

Is there something obvious here that I'm missing?

Any light you can shed on this matter is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Find someone with Office for the Mac. They should have the fonts you need.

I have Office for the Mac, I want to know how to put the font so it works in pages. I found the font but it has no extension but describes itself as a kind: Font Suitcase.

Thanks,

Jo

Put it in the folder Library/Fonts. That should do it.
