Installing a single font on your OS X or MacBook is very easy. All you do is download the desire font you want to install and double click on the font file. Then click on the “Install font” button to install the font on your mac. However, this process can be tedious if you have 50 or more fonts to install on your mac.
So here is a simple tutorial that shows you how to install all the fonts in a few simple steps.
Assuming you already download the desire fonts you want to install and all the fonts are in one folder on your mac.
First you would need to open the application “Font Book”. To do this, go on the Finder tab > Click “File” > “New Finder Window”
A new window would open, on the left-hand side click on “Applications”. Next scroll down and double click on “Font Book” on the right column. The Font Book applications will open. There you see all your current install fonts.
Now to mass install new fonts, go on the “Font Book” tab on the very top of your screen, hover over the file tab, a drop down menu would appear, click on “Add Fonts”. A “add new font” window will appear. You could have also just press the “command + O” to open the “add new fonts” window. See picture below:
Find the location of the folder that has the new fonts want to install. To select all the fonts at once, click on the first font file, then hold down the “Shirt” key and click on the last font file in the list. This would select all the fonts in the folder. Next, click Open.
This would validate the fonts and install them on your Mac. After installation, you can use the fonts on any applications such as: Photoshop, Word, PowerPoint, etc..
