    Is there a special way to download the fonts when the site: MyFonts is used?
    It appears that you always have to pay for the fonts from this site. I clicked on the link for Bookeyed Nelson and I only see the option for purchasing.

    If someone would just respond and let me know that I am not missing some hidden button for free and that you do have to pay, I would be really appreciative.
