I use a text user interface application on a server that I access via a Terminal. I have been using the Futurist Fixed-width for some time on a Linux PC in Gnome-Terminal, and would like to use that same font on a Windows PC with Putty.

When downloaded on a Windows PC, this font does not display as an option. I believe this is due to it not being correctly marked as a fixed-width font.

I have downloaded FontLab VI and attempted to mark this as a fixed-width font (Font Info > Monospaced), but it does not seem to be committing. When I open the exported font again in FontLab, I see that it again not marked as fixed-width.

I'd love to use this font in PuTTY, and am not committed to using any particular program to accomplish it.

Any suggestions?

You need to have Allow selection of variable-pitched fonts checked.

Also, bear in mind that changing the font would IS NOa T global setting, but rather a per session setting.
