I have both Mavericks & Windows 7 on my MBPr, how do I get fonts in pages to convert?

    I have a pages document with three different fonts.

    1.Snell Round hand

    2.BigCaslon

    3.Copperplate

    When I send the document over to Windows, it doesn't keep these 3 fonts.

    Is there anything I can install or an equivalent font I could use so it'll stay the same?

    Regards

    Have you tried putting the fonts onto a flash drive and putting them on Win7?

    Like putting it on a thumb drive via USB? In pages it only lets me share by emailing it or messaging it basically. How do I save it to USB?

    You can export whatever fonts you want to and put them on Windows 7, allowing you to use them however you want.

    Ah I see. That would be AWESOME. Will it be like a picture? Or like actually cut/copy/paste text?

    It will be just like a normal font that you can use. Cut/copy/paste to your heart's content.

    Neither. Fonts are contained in their own file format - basically a container with the font information inside it. That link tells you where to go in each OS to get the fonts working on both OS X and Windows.

    I see. Excellent. 2 questions please forgive my ignorance

    1. Where do I export it? Like do I need to transfer the font somehow to windows?

    2. If I export it, will I still have it on my Mac or will it be gone? I want to still be able to use that font in pages.

    Easiest would be to an external drive, boot to Windows, and you can right click to install them.

    Yes.
