I downloaded some new fonts - how do I get them into Pages to use? They are .sit files, if it makes a difference. Thanks!

    Click here, download StuffIt Expander, use it to open the files, and then place the decompressed files into the /Library/Fonts/ folder.

    I just spent some time installing new fonts, too. I found that (after the file was unstuffed), I just had to double-click the font to bring up a preview of it; and within that preview was an offer to install it. Just click the button and done!

    Yeah, I love how it's so much easier than the old OS9 days of having to put the fonts there yourself. More info for those looking at fonts, I've found that when given the option to download the Windows or the Macintosh font, downloading the Mac gives you a .sit file a lot of times. Instead, I download the Windows version (almost always a .zip file) and that works fine.

    Given the option between TTF and OTF, always go with the OTF one
