    Importing Fonts


      I am trying to import a font from dafont.com and it says that I don't have the right codec when I drag the downloaded file unto the media.  I am using Adobe Premiere Elements 10.  I tried fixing this by going to install content from Disc 4 but when the Install Wizard opens up the only option I get it to remove the program from my computer.

              You don't install or import fonts to Premiere Elements. You install them into your system. PRE can then use any installed font. In Windows right-click the font file and select install. After installation it should be available to you in PRE.

                What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 10 running on?


                You do not install fonts into Premiere Elements by importing them into the project media as you seem to be saying in your opening post.

                The web site that you referenced for your new fonts clearly states the how to. For example, after you extract the downloaded font,

                for Windows 8, 7, or Vista, you right click the font and select "Install". If the font is compatible with your system and Premiere Elements, then the font should be installed and you should find the font in the drop down list of fonts when you go to use the Premiere ElementsTitler and its text tool.


                The Premiere Elements 10 Content disc (Windows, disc 4 of 5) contains content for

                Movie Themes

                Title Templates

                DVD/Blu-ray Menu Templates


                and not the fonts, the kind to which you are referring. So, you do not want to involve Disk 4 in this matter as that you describe.

                The online download counterpart of your Disc 4 can be found

                Adobe - Premiere Elements: Download content


                Please let us know if your new fonts are installing as expected when you use the how to instructions at the web site offering the fonts.

                  I am using windows 7 core i5 HP.  After installing the fonts they show up in a folder which I now understand can'y be dragged into the media section of premiere.  The font also don't show up in the dropbox either though.

                    Thanks for the reply.


                    After you click installed to the font from the unzipped folder, what happens? Can you find the font in with Windows fonts if not within the Premiere Elements Titler font list?
