I just opened a poster I did last year to reuse it. CorelDraw prompted me for a substitute font for "Bermuda Solid" - which I must have had last June, but seems not to be installed any more.

I could use "Party" I suppose, but it doesn't fit the design as well.

Does anyone have any idea where it would have come from? I didn't buy it for this charity job, so it must have been installed from one of my application CDs (I am conscientious about not ripping off fonts!), though I cannot see where just now.

(Suggested sources: Corel - definitely not on CD; Office, PhotoShop, PaintShop Pro)

I've got a PS font, 'Bermuda LP Squiggle', with Adobe's name, but I don't know where I got it from either. It may have come with an old Paint Shop program, and I've bits of Corel Draw.

(Suggested sources: Corel - definitely not on CD; Office, PhotoShop, PaintShop Pro)Adobe sells this family and bundled another member (Bermuda Squiggle) with some application sometime before 2000, but am fairly certain it does not include any fonts with Photoshop. Microsoft didn’t ship it with Office for the Mac, and I would be surprised to find that it shipped it with anything (MS usually ships fonts it owns all rights to, and this one seems to be available only under license).

Both Adobe and Agfa Monotype sell the Bermuda family but it belongs to LetterPerfect (http://www.letterspace.com/LETTERPERFECT_FONTS/bermuda.htm), which also sells directly. You could contact them to ask if they licensed Solid to anyone who might have bundled it with an app you have.

If all else fails, you can buy the single font for $35 (or get all of them for $99) at the LetterPerfect web site. Right now they have a special 20% discount for downloaded fonts.

Good luck in your quest.

I thought it was Illustrator, but it could have been with anything.

Thanks KT - I will have another look on my various Adobe CDs (I don't have Illustrator...). I'm not shelling out for a freebie job though!

It looks like this (don’t know if it would do even if you can find it in your files):
