3) Right click the font file and go to properties. Copy the .ttf file name. Double click the font file to get the family name.
4) Open the xdo.cfg file and paste as follows (My filename is FRE3OF9X.ttf and font family is Free 3 of 9 Extended)

[font family="Free 3 of 9 Extended" style="normal" weight="normal"]
[truetype path="C:\Windows\fonts\FRE3OF9X.ttf" /]
[/font]
Note: replace brackets([ & ]) with angle brackets as was unable to paste due to HTML restriction in comments. There should be sample already available in the xdo.cfg file.
