    Add a named folder to the Logo Elements file with your .pngs images in it . Once file is there then it will appear in the drop down menu.

    system fonts.jpg system fonts.jpg text format.jpg NEW Fonts are ALWAYS installed to your system font folder.Emedded fonts are part of the program and you need not worry about them .Only images are stored in Logo Elements folder.PNG images are preferred...jpg and swfs.

    Hi,
    Okay now I am a bit confused. In The embed fonts I see you have the action women? So are those dingbat fonts then?
    if not how do we get them?

    Also where would I install vector business people images then in the Elements folder section too? thanks and sorry I am really new:)

    Embedded fonts is showing NO name...you are seeing Action woman fonts which is in the system font folder ...see where it shows UNDER the fonts name???.And yes they are a DINGBAT font.Embedded fonts are licensed fonts to TLC.

    One thing to keep in mind. Actually, several things ...

    If you create a folder in your /My Documents/Laughingbird Documents/Logo Elements/ directory, and it is EMPTY, then it will not show up in the list. It must have at least 1 graphic before it will show up. You'll have to exit TLC and restart it for it to show.

    Also, make sure the file extension is lower case ( .png .jpg ) and NOT UPPER CASE ( .PNG .JPG ) as upper case extensions will not be displayed!

    About fonts ... there are several sites you can go to to get FREE fonts. http://www.fontastico.com/

    Any font you install to your computer will be available to TLC! Cool huh? :cowboyno:
