Fonts in OpenOffice? Kinda urgent.

Ok, Im running 2.4.1 and Im trying to add a font to my library so I can use it. Problem is I have no idea where I add them. Ive got a .ttf file from the download, but doing a search for those kinds of files didnt turn up anything in the openoffice folder. This is kinda urgent because the project Im working on is due tomorrow, I forgot about making it look better with fonts and now I cant figure it out.

Do I just need to use Word? If so, where do I add it there?

    You should be able to use fonts anywhere on your system by putting them in X:/Windows/Fonts

    Works for me just fine in Vista. May need to restart in XP? Try just restarting OO first.

    Also, if all else fails, right click on the *.ttf file and choose "Install Font"

    Windows can be picky about certain fonts. If you open up X:\Windows\Fonts in XP there's a little Install Fonts button up top. Click it, choose the font file, and install. Then reboot your programs that use it and you should have the font.
