Free fonts for your work

Different purposes need different fonts

These days most of the paperwork is done on computers. As there are different application areas, many different fonts are required. Engineers need other characters than physicians or artists. Mathematicians require fonts containing mathematical operators while astrologers need to insert signs for celestial events. And what can a physician do to write medical evidence or an architect to insert Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs?

Find the font with the characters you need

So there's a huge number of different fonts for different application areas. But it's not only the abundance of fonts, which you can barely overlook; most of them are also containing thousands of available characters and it's hardly imaginable to access them all with your keyboard.

Before you can use the characters in a font, you must download the font and install it on your computer.

Download free fonts

When you search the web, you find a lot of fonts for download. There are many sites out there offering free fonts to download for Windows and the Mac alike. Let us mention two examples:

At the time of this writing, you can download many free fonts from 1001 Free Fonts. A site, which offers the download of free fonts for astrological symbols, is FontSpace, LLC. Please note that these sites are not related to us in any way, and we cannot guarantee for the quality of the fonts or even for the terms of usage. Make sure to read and comply with the licensing conditions of the particular site.

Another very interesting font is the Unicode-based font Code2000, one of the largest available fonts. Please note that Code2000 is not a free font but rather a shareware font.

If you can't find the needed symbols in any free font, you may want to look at commercial sources, where you can purchase fonts online for a modest fee.

PopChar - explore and use free fonts

Unfortunately, finding a site where you can download a font is only the first half of the solution. Most of the downloaded fonts come with thousands of characters and signs and it's not easy to explore all the characters of the font, and particularly to insert those characters into your documents.

That's where PopChar comes into play.
