UPGRADE USERS

If upgrading from a previous version of Schoolhouse Fonts from vLetter, you can manually delete the older fonts.

IMPORTANT! Before deleting “SigA” or “SigB” fonts…
If you have saved worksheets or documents that use the older fonts, you will need to modify those files first, before you delete the fonts. Open each document, then select each “Sig” font style and change it to the corresponding “Sch” font in the new set. Example: SigAPrint is now called SchZPrint; SigBCursive is now called SchDCursive. After changing all text, save the document.

For documents that use the connected fonts, first open up each file and convert the connected text back to “Plain Text” using the vLetter toolbar in Word, or the SigSoft Handwriter (“unwrite” the highlighted text). Then you can highlight the text and select one of the new connected fonts from the Font menu, then save the document.

Delete the .TTF files
You can delete all “SigA”or “SigB” TrueType files from the Fonts folder, located in the Control Panel on the Start Menu. Be sure to delete only files with “.TTF” extensions. You can also delete the LiteUS and LiteEuro fonts if you do not intend to use them.
