# Help with using non-standard Windows fonts in Latex

(Not sure if this is the right forum, but if the admins find a more appropriate one, please do move it over).

Alright, fellow Scientists and Engineers.

I have a Latex question here for you.

I use TexWorks and Lyx when I want to work on Latex, the former when I have .tex templates that Lyx wont import well; the latter when I can use Lyx's templates.

Anyway, I have some beautiful Adobe fonts that I discovered in Adobe Reader's Resources folder (I use Win 7) - Minion Pro, etc, that I'd like to use in my latex documents. Try as I might, I simply can't seem to find a straightforward way to use those fonts in my tex documents, or any other Windows fonts.

I don't fully comprehend the range of technicalities involved with using fonts - every webpage that is potentially helpful seems to feel the need to explain the basics of fonts in general - tl;dr them.

Again, I use TexWorks, which accepts standard Latex commands. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, is someone aware of a popular latex forum like Physicsforum?

Danke!
