Most of the time, the regular Microsoft Word fonts are sufficient when it comes to the creation of new templates. However, sometimes it can be necessary to add a custom font. There are two possible ways to add a font.

Option 1: Add custom fonts directly to the template (recommended)

To add custom fonts directly to the template, simply open a random DocumentsCorePack Word template and navigate to the file-tab. Once there, click on Options (to be found on the left side at the bottom).

This brings up the Word Options-dialog. Select the Save-tab and make sure, that the  Embed fonts in the file-option at the very bottom of the dialog is checked (see Figure 1).

Click on the [OK]-button in order to save your changes.

Please note: The fonts are now saved in this template only. If you want the font(s) to be added to other templates too, you have to repeat the above steps with each template. 

Option 2: Copy custom fonts to the server

To copy custom fonts to the server, you have to create a folder called Fonts and save your fonts there.

Make sure the folder is saved under the following path:
Installation path +\ folder Fonts
