I like Verdanna.
I had no idea this was possible!! I just tried it and it worked like a charm!
MissScrimmage, on rare occasions something weird will happen with a pdf... but the rest of the time, printing/saving to pdf is the greatest thing since transferable media.
I use Cambria a lot for my text, and then a font called Alegreya for my titles. All of my hand-outs are kind of themed that way.
I know that on Google docs, you sometimes can't print a certain font to a PDF for whatever reason until you go to Google Webfonts, and add it to your collection, and then open it up again. It's really annoying because sometimes you have to do it multiple times on the same computer, and you have to do it for every font.
Thanks for the head's up! I created a letter this week with an adorable font that I don't have at school. I tried printing at home but I am out of ink. Saved the letter as a PDF and now I'll be able to print it at school. It's a miracle!
I tend to use Century Gothic. A principal pointed out that it was the font used for the big state tests and she used it so that the students got used to reading it. It made sense at the time and so I have used it almost exclusively ever since.
I'm simple, I almost always use Times New Roman.
I use Ariel, and Comic Sans (don't judge, lol.) I use them because I remember reading somewhere that it's helpful for students with dyslexia. I figure it won't hurt, so I usually stick with Ariel.

i like school bell
I'm a Comic Sans person... *hides* I honestly don't make much handouts myself. I use it for more decorative purposes or letters home. Otherwise I stick with Arial or Calibri.
Nothing wrong with Comic Sans! It's used so much because it is easy for students to read, which is a great reason for using a font.
BTW: Chiller is a great one for Halloween, or any other creepy occasion.
My goodness. I never thought about fonts enough to feel such passion about them. I use comic sans for just about everything. Sorry.
I am surprised to see that everyone is saying Comic Sans is easy to read... any research I've heard about has actually claimed the exact opposite...
I have a Mac and have downloaded some from daFont. I have a theme I use this year on all my documents. Type Key and Type Key Black for all titles. American Typewriter for the body. Then there is a Callie Hand for Header 2.
I used to use Calibri for a lot of things.
Anyone seen this Comic Sans parody?
crud. that didn't work because it has a curse word. google McSweenys Comic Sans and it will come up.
edit: seeing if I link it, if it will work
At work I use Kuckoo.
I searched it and I almost died!
I use Comic sans for the state standards that have to be posted on the wall. I use Zombified for my motivational posters.
