We recently had the machine that our graphic designer uses fail, and we are recovering his settings from it.
What we want to know is how can we recover and transfer his installed fonts from one machine to the next? Where are they installed?
Its on a Windows 7 machine running CS5
In general, fonts in Windows are installed in the Windows\Fonts folder.
They can also be installed in other locations, both within folders named Document Fonts under specific jobs, and also in another folder altogether if you are using a font manager.
You can do a search for more modern fonts by a wildcard search, such as *.otf or *.ttf. As well, if you are using type 1 postscript fonts, there will be fonts with the extensions of pfm, pfb etc.
We've already transferred the Windows Font folder, it did not contain the specific fonts he is looking for.
Did you search the computer as I mentioned?
