Updating Your Fonts

How do I update my existing fonts?
We often release updates to existing fonts. These updates can include improved kerning, changes to letters, and even additional styles. These revisions (unless the font has been completely redrawn) are always free to customers who previously purchased the font set.

To redownload the updated font set, simply follow these steps:

1) Uninstall the existing version(s) of the font set from your system Fonts folder.

2) Login to your account here.

3) Download the .zip package for the order containing the revised font (we've already reset your downloads for this package).

4) Making sure that your applications are closed, follow the instructions for installing your fonts.

Note:
Windows users should note that when you double-click on an updated font that has the same name as a font you already have installed, Windows shows you a preview of the installed version. All versions of Windows behave this way.

For example, let's say we issued an update to "LHF Unlovable", revising it from 1.0 to 2.0. You then download this new version from your account and save it to your Desktop. Double-clicking on the font to see a preview, shows you a preview of the installed version (which reads 1.0), rather than the font you have actually downloaded (version 2.0). This is because the new version has the same name as the installed version. Windows is actually showing you a preview of the installed version. If you uninstall the old version from the Windows Fonts folder first, and again double-click on the new version, you will see the correct preview.

Once the new version is installed, open your application. With the newly installed font chosen you can easily check which version you're currently using by typing the bar character ( | ). The bar character is usually located above the Enter key. After typing the bar character, the version number and date will be shown below the LHF insignia.
