Does this Hebrew script exist only in fragments of some of the caves of the Deep Sea Scrolls?  I am thinking even if you have a Paleo translation in a complete Bbile only some of the books come from original paleo-Hebrew?  If so, then where do the Bibles not in Paleo-Hebrew come from?  Perhaps the books other than found in the Deep Sea Scrolls are just rewritten usiing the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet?  In that case the other books of the Bible even if written in Paleo would only date to the Masonetic translation copied.  Correct?

Yes, only fragments and has paleo in the name of the manuscript.
"1Q" means "cave 1".
1QpaleoLev, 2QpaleoLev,4QpaleoGen-Exodl, 4QpaleoGenm, 4QpaleoGen-Exodl,...

There is no complete Bible in Paleo-Hebrew available because of the old age and bad preservation of manuscripts.
But you can always change to Paleo-Hebrew font
By installing Paleo-Hebrew font to windows and change font in e-Sword.

Paleo translation? To change unpointed Hebrew square script into Paleo-Hebrew script need you only a Paleo-Hebrew font.

The first alphabet was the "Proto-Sinaitic script" made in the time of Exodus at least by Moses himself when he rewrote the Ten Commandments or wrote the "Covenant Code".

The paleo-Hebrew script is made in the same time as the Phoenician Alphabet that use the same 22 letters as the Hebrew Alphabet (the shape is different).
So the paleo-Hebrew and the Phoenician alphabet are interchangeable.

And are both a simplified version of Proto-Sinaitic script.
David and Salmon have a good trade-relation with Hiram king of Tyre. 2Sa 5:11 1Ki 5:1

At the deportation to Babylon and Ezra started the Jews by with Aramaic Script that became a square script.

Perhaps the books other than found in the Deep Sea Scrolls are just rewritten usiing the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet?
The books by Dead Sea Scrolls are in Paleo-Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, square script Hebrew and Latin.

In that case the other books of the Bible even if written in Paleo would only date to the Masonetic translation copied. Correct?
The Masoretic Text stream is made by the Masoretes between the 7th and 10th centuries AD.
They are copies of copies of copies... with pointing added (vowel pointing and other accents and paragraph marks).
It is not a "translation" but rather a restoration of the original text with improvements.

I have download the Paleo fonts and installed each to windows but  e-Sword does not see any of them.  I've looked up Font installation topics but non has proved helpful.  (Fresh install of windows 10 and Fresh install of e-Sword)

Any help greatly appreciated.

In the fonts list in e-Sword the Paleo-Hebrew font name is spelled out in Paleo-Hebrew instead of English so you have to look closely at the fonts that start with the letter P and look for Paleo-Hebrew lettering
