hi, i have windows 7 and still using CS3. type manager does not work with windows 7. i was so accustomed to using type manager but thought i figured out how to get my fonts working. They are in other software (such as microsoft/quark). However, in all my adobe products my fonts besides the fonts which were loaded on the computer are not showing up. can you help?

There is a known bug with CS3 and all 64-bit versions of Windows (not just Windows 7) in which Type 1 fonts installed in the C:\Windows\fonts directory simply do not show up in the applications. This was fixed for CS4. The workaround is to also install those Type 1 fonts in the Creative Suite private font directory. They will then show up in the CS3 applications' font lists.

Yes. Place the fonts in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts (assuming C: is your system boot drive). That directory is created when you install CS3.
