    Hi all,

    Can anyone help me locate a copy of HfW cursive handwriting that I could download onto my work computer. I have got a new computer and it doesn’t has the font installed which makes using a lot of my saved resources useless. Looking online the company I bought the cd rom (It’s been lost) from last time have gone out of business.

    Can anyone help?
    Kind Regards

    Hi @sooty19

    Not sure whether HfW is a font as such. I think it may be a program, which allows you to type cursive joined-up writing direct from your keyboard. Came across this, with two alternative versions listed:

    Usual caveats apply with regard to software via the web. Check for nasties after downloading before installing on your PC. If you have Windows 10 Pro, you can add a feature called Sandbox. This would allow you to install the .exe file in a virtual environment, rather than installing it to your main PC environment. Once the program's closed all traces are deleted, so you'd need to go through the install again each time you used it. More details here if you're interested:

    Depending on which version of Windows you have, you may perhaps have to run it using Compatibility Mode, given it's age?
