On a mac, it's whatever you computer has installed. You don't add them directly to the programs. I assume a PC is just the same.

You just copy your new fonts into the Macintosh/Library/Fonts folder.
They will then appear in PS & any other text program. I found out by observation you can use tru type fonts on the Mac.

In Windows go to control panel/fonts and use the install feature.

I've added fonts to my system, and restarted illustrator, but can see fonts in panel of illustrator. Should I uninstall/reinstall fonts again?

If your using a Mac, go to dafont.com and download your font file. Then go to, Finder/Application/Fontbook, then open Fontbook, drag and drop your downloaded file into the Fontbook "collection" panel - it should load your font with no problem. Then restart your Illustrator or Photoshop.

Please send me an email to let me know if this works for you-it worked for me.
