Hi everyone , I’m new to this site. I am looking for a front program for psp7. Can anyone help me? thank you so much. DebbieApril 14, 2018 at 4:09 pm #18292
Welcome to the Campus. Could you clarify if you want help with the PSP7 version (old version from JASC) or the X7 version (more recent from Corel)?
And you are mentioning “front” program. Do you mean “font” program?April 14, 2018 at 4:27 pm #18293
Yes I’m sorry, I meant font program for psp 7 jascApril 14, 2018 at 4:39 pm #18294
I don’t have a version 7 on my computer anymore, but could you clarify what you need a “font program” for? Do you want to use other fonts in your PSP7? Or do you want to manage fonts (which would be outside of PSP)?April 14, 2018 at 5:01 pm #18295
I want to use fonts in my psp program. There are some in there but just basic ones.April 14, 2018 at 5:58 pm #18297
OK, that is clearer. First, you don’t need an outside program to USE fonts in PSP. In fact, PSP will use the fonts from your Windows system. One option is to install new fonts, but this can easily get out of hand as it is likely that you will find more and more fonts, and those will also end up available in other Windows applications, like Words, and such.
If you are using the old PSP7, I suspect you are not using Windows 10. Are you using Windows 7 or still use an old Windows Xp?
If you happen to use Windows XP, you could simply double-click on any font you might have downloaded and want to use, and that would open a display of that font. As long as that display is open (even if minimized at the bottom of the taskbar), that font will be available in PSP.
If you are using Windows 7, that function has been removed and you would need a font viewer, like TheFontThing. There is an article on font viewers HERE. If you use The Font Thing, as long as the font is VISIBLE in the right pane, it will be available in PSP. As soon as you close TFT or you scroll further to display other fonts, that one you wanted is no longer available. Of course, you can temporarily install a font and uninstall it once your project is done.
Let me know if this helps.April 15, 2018 at 4:51 pm #18299
I have windows xp I’m pretty sure, I know I don’t have 10April 15, 2018 at 4:57 pm #18300
So if you have windows XP, try double-clicking on a font file you want to use, and once the window is open, minimize it and see if it appears in the list of font in your PSP.
If that does not work, download the TheFontThing (download the version without the installer), unzip it, and install it. From there, browse to the font you want to use and make sure it is visible in the right pane and it will be accessible in your PSP.April 15, 2018 at 5:12 pm #18301
Thank you I will try that. I appreciate your help 🙂April 17, 2018 at 4:20 pm #18324

Hi Debbie, I created a little video for you illustrating how to use The Font Thing.
Let me know if it helps or if there is something different you are experiencing.
