Thanks. However, there is a long list of fonts in there but nothing that I can identify as SimSig.
If the fonts are not there then the SimSig layouts will not display properly but will show rows of letters and symbols rather than the representation of trackwork and signals. On my system I can see an icons labelled SIMSIGv2 Standard and SimSigsmallv2 standard which both point to SimSigv2.fon. Depending on the settings for your fonts folder you may not be able to see them with your current settings but they will definitely be on your system in the Fonts folder..
Sorry about this but I'm not at all computer savvy.
I understand that they are on my system but they are not showing in the list of fonts and I can't see how to make them show.

They are showing in your graphic although not in the listing.

Where is that fonts list coming from? If I reset my fonts folder to show list or details rather than medium icons the SimSig fonts are still showing. If you have grabbed that list from something like a word processor it may well be that the fonts don't show because the program does not support them (so even if they were listed you couldn't use them in that program).

The Fonts list is in Windows Explorer. The icons appear if I click on the actual Fonts folder.

I really appreciate your help but I'm not particularly concerned with it because Notepad sees them. I've just got to work out how to do graphics now; no luck so far.
