How to Add Swashes to Fonts

Save

Although your computer comes with a selection of fonts that have been pre-installed, there may be times when you would like to use a decorative font that is not on your computer. Swashes are fonts that are elegant. They are very similar to calligraphy fonts, only more decorative. The swashes are perfect for projects such as book titles and document headers.

  • Visit a website that will allow you to download Swash fonts. A few of the websites that will allow you to download swashes have been included in the "Resources" section below. Many of the websites will charge you a fee to download their swashes. Sites such as FontSpace.Com and Fonts101.Com will allow you to download swashes for free.

  • Browse through the different swashes that are available. Click on the option to "Download" the swash of your choice. Remember the folder location to which the swashes are downloaded. Typically, the file will be saved in your fonts folder, "C:\Windows\Fonts."

  • Open your fonts folder on your computer. Click the "Alt" button on your keyboard to reveal the menu bar.

  • Click "File" on the menu bar. Select the option to "Install" fonts.

  • Choose the folder location from Step 2 where the swashes were downloaded. Click on the "Install" button to complete the installation. After the installation completes, you will be able to access your swashes from the list of available fonts in your other document programs.
