    I have created several documents using the font "Marker Felt" in Word 2004. I transferred the documents across to my college network this morning and on the PC's there, that font isn't available so it gets substituted with Courier or something equally awful!

    Is there any way to embed the font in the document so that I can take it with me? Or can I install the .dfont file somehow on the PCs there? I know you could embed fonts in earlier versions of Word on Win32 but can't see the option in Word 2004.

    I have to submit the documents in DOC format on CD as well as hard copy so PDF is no good for me really. I assume the lecturer will be using Word for Windows to open the documents so really would be good if I can embed the font somehow.

    Any advice appreciated :)

    I am too sure if this can be done with Mac-version Word but Microsoft Word allows you to embed the font to keep the original looks of the document.

    If I remember it right, go to Option > Save and opt for Embed TrueType Fonts. :)

    Unfortunately all the information I can see states that Font Embedding is not supported on a MAC.

    MisterMe you think it is possible... could you please let us know how to embed fonts in Microsoft Word 2008 for Mac then?
