A printer driver with a special font is installed on my system which can only be used if I set the printer to this driver in text editors like Wordpad or Word.

In Writer, I can choose the printer driver but the font list does not contain this font.

How can I add this font so that it ca nbe used in the document?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

You can move the font folder that was included in the driver to the Windows Font folder and see if it makes a difference. OpenOffice is supposed to be able to automatically detect fonts the same exact way Microsoft Word does.
