Add LibreCaslon (to name one) and Computer Modern (to name two) to Word
Not much really.
- Websearch for ‘librecaslon’
- Open the zip file. Extract to somewhere temporary.
- Find the OTF files.
- Highlight them all.
- Right click.
- Select install.
Now, if you do not have admin rights it is more interesting:
- Right click.
- Go to https://portableapps.com/download
- When asked, select ‘Local — install for current user’ or similar.
- Finish installing.
- Use the Explorer to go to: C:\Users\username\PortableApps\PortableApps.com\Data (‘username’ is the login name of the user installing the software).
- Create a ‘Fonts’ folder in there.
- Put the OTF files into this folder.
- Start the Portable Apps Platform (if no shortcut/menu entry is available, go to C:\Users\username\PortableApps\PortableApps.com and run PortableAppsPlatform.exe). If it was started during installation, stop it and restart it.
- Open Word, say, and LibreCaslon now appears in the fonts menu.
- Close the Portable Apps Platform and it will not be accessible, though Word might still list it.
- Add any other fonts you like this way, but they’ll only be available while the Portable Apps Platform is running, and you’ll need to stop it and restart it to make them appear. On the other hand, installation/removal is really simple; to uninstall, turn off the platform and remove from the Fonts folder!
Lots of other great applications (LibreOffice, gnumeric, GIMP, all that) are available through the Portable Apps Platform.
Oh, Computer Modern is at https://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/computer-modern and https://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/cm-unicode/fonts/otf.
