    Hi Ed. Welcome to the support forum for the software, Make The Cut, and Popup Card Studio (MTC and PCS.) Both programs are 3rd party programs that worked with a variety of cutters, but not directly with any Provocraft products. Since you are seeking help with Provocraft’s online program, for the fastest help,you will probably need to find a users’ group on Facebook who supports users of their stuff as they do not have an official support forum and haven’t in years. This is because you won’t find many regular Cricut users here. I haven’t used their products in many years, but I thought they had eliminated the Design Space program, at least support for it? 🤔😔

    as far as downloading your fonts in general, you download them to your computer, inzip them if in a compressed or zipped file (be careful there, sometimes people bundle other “junk” when they have it in a compressed file. This is why I prefer to use Dafont, they don’t. Then install them on your computer. (again, be careful as too many fonts can slow down your computer at minimum.) Once installed, they should generally show in all programs on your computer. One final note of caution, not all fonts are created equal and not all fonts cut well.
    Go Vols!

    I don't think you can see a preview when you hover over the different fonts. You actually have to click on the new font and then you will see what it looks like. If the fonts are showing up in the drop down menu then you know they are installed on your computer. But as was mentioned above, Facebook is the best place for that question. This group is one of my favorites (not affiliated with them).
