Where have I gone wrong?

I have just purchased AlphaTricks and imported 3 fonts, I think successfully. Now I'm trying to use them, but when I type in Jenny, as in the practice video, and click on one of my new fonts, NOTHING happens. Where am I going wrong? They look to be in the drop down menu, but I can not get them to work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When you select the font from the pulldown menu, click on the ? here and you will see the letters that have been mapped for this font. Do you see all the letters that you think you mapped? Some people forget to map the alphabet itself - they import the font and click Save -- nothing has been mapped. The assigning of keys is how the software can actually "read" the designs. Without you telling the software that A.pes is the letter A on your keyboard, the software will not know what to do with it.
