For Type 1 fonts, copy the .pfb and .pfm files associated with the font to your new system into a work directory. Then right click on the .pfm file and use the Install function.

For OpenType CFF fonts, copy the .otf file associated with the font to your new system into a work directory. Then right click on the .otf file and use the Install function.

For TrueType and OpenType TrueType fonts, copy the .ttf file associated with the font to your new system into a work directory. Then right click on the .ttf file and use the Install function.
