i think it’ll be ok.

the first sentence of that makes me think it’ll be ok.  if microsoft developed it, stands to reason it’ll work in microsoft products.  and it specifically says it was developed to work on windows and mac machines, so i’m thinking it should work.

i’m not speaking from experience here, though.

 

(i know you love this one you’ve found, but have you checked out http://kevinandamanda.com/fonts/ ? seriously awesome fonts, free, and work on my macbook)

You can use the font but won’t be able to access the beautiful glyphs (extra swishes and alternate letters).  You need Adobe software to get to those.

You can use Inkscape for the glyphs – it’s free.  I just used it for my invites.  If you have trouble with the glyphs in Inkscape, PM me and I’ll be happy to help.  The first time I did it, it took me a few hours to get 5 words with the glyphs and then the next day I found a shortcut that would have cut it down to 15 minutes.

How do you access the glyphs in Inkscape?

Hi, I was wondering if you ever figured this out? I was planning on buying Burgues Script as well but really dont see the point if i cant access the glyphs…
