  1. I am not sure what I am doing wrong? When I type the name and hit enter, it erases all the writing lines and only shows the name in a very small font.?

    1. Hi, I am not sure what the problem would be. The fonts are embedded into the file. Do you have an older version of Adobe Reader maybe?

    3. Thanks! I'm sorry you are having problems with this. Can you try installing the font and see if that's the problem? The font is supposed to be embedded but maybe that's the problem. It is a free font for personal use. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/KG-Primary-Dots-Lined-Font-Personal-Use-559628

    4. I am trying this again, i did install the dot font and it's working but it is so small I can't figure out how to enlarge the font size. On my mac air on that screen does not have a text increase. So strange do you have any suggestions?

    5. Sorry, I'm not sure why it isn't working for you. It seems to be working fine for most people. I would suggest since you installed the font already, you can make your own sheets using a Word program on your computer. Just select the font and you can type the names.

    1. You can try installing the Font on your computer. It is supposed to be embedded into the file (i double checked) but that might be the issue. It is a free font for personal use: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/KG-Primary-Dots-Lined-Font-Personal-Use-559628

  4. Thank-you this is a wonderful resource. Is there anyway that I can upload a different font? I have to teach using a pre-cursive font and I think it would be confusing if I gave them your sheets and then they had to learn a different style in their workbooks.

    1. Hi, Unfortunately you won't be able to change the font on this sheet. However, if you already have a font you'd like to use, you can create your own tracing sheet in a program such as Word. Select your font and then write the students' names. I hope this helps!

    1. Hi, Please make sure you are using Adobe Reader on your computer to open the file. You cannot change the font in the document but it should allow you to write the child's name. If you are still having problems, please email me at totschooling@gmail.com and I can try to help.

    1. It could be a Mac issue, I'm not sure. I would suggest installing the font and making your own sheets in a Word program. Just select the font and type out the names.
