I have created a discount coupon in Publisher and our tracking software requires that it includes a code which I was instructed to print on the coupons. I have downloaded the Code 128 font and can see it in Word but it is not recognized in Publisher. I have struggled with this for hours now, so need your expert advice. How can I fix this problem as I cannot make this coupon a Word document?

After you downloaded the font, you need to properly install it on your machine. To do that, go to Start > Control Panel > Fonts > View installed fonts. Drag and drop your recently downloaded font file to the right pane of the installed font window. Close the Control Panel and open the Publisher program. Open a new newsletter, brochure or black page, click on Draw Text Box in the middle of the toolbar at the top of the page, draw a box and check if the font is installed. You can pull down the font menu, under Font section of the toolbar. You should have it installed.
