A font is a particular size, weight and style of a typeface. Each font is a matched set of type, one piece (called a "sort") for each glyph, and a typeface consists of a range of fonts that share an overall design. With the advent of digital typography, font is frequently synonymous with typeface, although the two terms do not necessarily mean the same thing. In particular, the use of "vector" or "outline" fonts means that different sizes of a typeface can be dynamically generated from one design. Each style may still be in a separate "font file" -- for instance, the typeface "Futura" may include the fonts "Futura roman", "Futura italic", "Futura bold" and "Futura extended" —- but the term "font" might be applied either to one of these alone or to the whole typeface.

I've got text that has an unusual kind of formatting "shading": <span
style=3D'background:#80FFFF'>text</span> (if you take a peek in file saved as HTML)
17-09-21-02-54-032700.jpgNot a highlight, but it looks similar (highlight covers it, making you think it overrides it, but when you change it back to no highlight, the "3D BAckground" is still there).

How to batch convert all instances of it to a font color (say for example red)?

I purchased a Ricoh MP C307 printer directly rather than going through the Ricoh sales people. It's a brand new printer with new toner, but for some reason it won't print black, we have to change font color to blue in order to print it. I called the seller, he told me I haven't done the setup right and that there is nothing wrong with the printer, he advised me to hire a Ricoh tech to do the proper setup. I've setup 100s of printers in my life time, I am pretty sure there is no magic step that I missed during setup. Would appreciate any tips on how to fix this. Thanks!

My client wants to use he Comfortaa font on the website, and I suspect it is not available to everyone by default by just adding it to your CSS?

I notice that some sites that use it, import it from the fonts.googleapis.com? is that what's happening here?
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Comfortaa" />

But we can't do that, because our salesmen have a non-internet version that they show clients, and so it has to be available offline.

I've seen where you can download the font here:
https://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/comfortaa

But I don't know if that site is legit or just going to put spam and spyware on my machine.

Also, there is a download link on the right here, but I don't know if that is downloading this font or something else:
https://aajohan.deviantart.com/art/Comfortaa-font-105395949

So the question is, when there is a custom font, how does one typically get it embedded for use into their website, and even their mobile app if possible?

thoughts?

thanks!

I have always used Adobe Acrobat, but on your suggestion I am testing Nuance's Power PDF.  The thing that is most important to me is the ability to edit forms (either created by me or by others).  I am using a test form created by one of my client companies, and can't find a way for the Power PDF program to edit the font settings in the form.  This is an important feature.

I tried editing the font settings in Adobe Acrobat XI (which I currently use), and for the first time got a message that read "This form cannot be edited in Acrobat.  Please use Adobe's LiveCycle Designer to edit this form".  What is LiveCycle Designer, and is there no longer an Adobe product that will allow me to do what I need to do?  Or do I need to add the pricey LiveCycle to my Acrobat to get the form editing features?

Thanks,

Phil

I do OCRecognition with FineReader. It only highlights the uncertain ain characters with what MS Word recognizes as character:shading (in light cyan color), or at least the character:shading can override/clean this color (and also does the gray shadow custom option that is not in the basic ribbon, while heighlight does not). I want it to paste in Excel, or other places and still keep the uncertaint characters in color. What is a way to batch convert every shading [specific color?] into let's say font color:red or magenta? I believe all formatting in Word is a messy html that could possibly be converted.

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

What tool can I use to list (and show examples in sentence form) of all the fonts on my system?

I would like to then create and print the list as a pdf.

Hi

One of my users is using Outlook 2011 on Mac with Exchange email account (Office 365). He has text based signature configured to appear in each email he sends.
We noticed that when people receive his emails the fonts are not the same size he used for composing emails. He used to size 8 Verdana for text and email but now we changed it to size 11 Verdana. Saved the settings and closed and reopened Outlook. When composing email it all looks fine. When I received his emails on Outlook 2016 Windows the fonts changed size 8 to size 6 and from size 11 to 8.5. We also checked some of his emails to which people replied and the fonts there vary from 8.5 to 12, but we don't know what email software recipients are using. We checked it in user's Sent items and it is fine there.
It looks like the emails this user is sending are all plain texts, at least the ones I saw.  
As far as I am concerned all of the updated for Outlook 20111 and his Mac are installed.

Is this just the way Mac "likes" the rest of the world or can we make sure that his emails are displayed properly?

Regards,
Tom

Ex. when the user open the page the table has ?<h3> .... </h3> for he cells, and when I update the variable value, the Font or Format goes back to the normal Font NOT THE <H3>
I want to be able to update values keeping the same format or font.
This is the original cell from table
<tr><td width="180"><h3>Sub-total</h3> </td><td align="right" width="150"> <span id="total-price"><h3>15.98</h3> </span> </td></tr>

and when the listener updates the value, it works yes, but the font changes

Please see attached screen shots. I was building this very basic landing page and all of a sudden my fonts are messed up. Also when I use the inspector I have this invisible secret "SAVE" button (highlighted).

This only happens on Safari and it is on random websites across the web

loop through all Substituted Fonts.

Hi CSS Experts.

I have a font that supports font-weight of 700.

I would like whenever I use strong span in a paragraph for that "strong" to have a weight of 700.  

But I can't figure out how to do this in css.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I am writing a chess program and I am trying to build an elegant graphical interface. I checked Jose chess program (http://jose-chess.sourceforge.net/) and it uses chess true type fonts to build the chessboard with the pieces. I dont want to build a 3d chessboard, just a 2D. I wonder how emulate Jose behaviour of chess pieces? I mean, how I can use the chess TTF the way Jose does to display a 2D chessboard? Any suggestion?

regards
Lopem

Ps. By the way, I tried this code:

Var
BMP : Tbitmap;
begin
bmp := tbitmap.create;
bmp.width := 800;
bmp.height := 600;
bmp.canvas.font.name := 'Arial';
bmp.canvas.font.size := 18;
bmp.canvas.font.style := [fsbold];
with bmp.canvas do
begin
beginpath(bmp.canvas.handle);
SetBKMode(Handle, TRANSPARENT);
textout(100, 100, 'TESTING');
endpath(bmp.canvas.handle);
brush.color := clBlue;
pen.color := clblack;
pen.width := 5;
StrokeAndFillPath(Handle);
end;
bmp.savetofile('C:\test.bmp');
bmp.free;
end;

It makes a bmp outlined of any TT font, but it doesnt get the result I was expecting.

Also, I tried:

with Image1.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas do
begin
  Font.Color := clBlue;
  Brush.Stule := bClear;
  Font.Size := 13;
  Font.Name := "Chess Merida";
  TextOut(10,10,'k');
end;

but the result is poor, like in the ZZZZZZ chess program (see image). Any ideas?

I have to tell you that also Chessbase (a chessgames database) use the same approach as the Jose chess program so I guess the code cant be so difficult …

Hello,

Is there a way to adjust the font size of specific aspects of Windows 10 after installing the recent Creator's Upgrade?

Prior to this upgrade, Windows 10 allowed you to make changes in the size of fonts used in various places (eg Title bar, Menu, Message box, etc.).  In addition to the font, changes in size were also applied to the icons in toolbars, etc.

However, since the upgrade, I have not been able to locate a place to make those changes. That is particularly troubling because since installing the update, most of my system fonts and icons are extremely small and difficult to read.

Thanks

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

in outlook 2016, i have everything set to 14.

view tab > view settings > conditional formatting. everything is set to 14
view tab > view settings > other settings. everything is set to 14.

i do not know how to make the TO, CC, BCC font larger. the font is small, but the auto populate names are big. if i were to type "bbbbb" in the TO part of a composed email, the font is small. i need that larger.

the display is set to large at 150%

This is weird.  An old document contains a bunch of text that was accidentally converted to Symbol font.

xxxxxxx Some of the text CANNOT be converted back to calibri  (it becomes all boxes)

xxxxxxx Nearly identical text CAN be converted back to calibri (it is the word "Davids")

Why are they different?  
How can I convert them both back to Calibri?

(I already know that copying from it Word to Excel does then back to Word, but I want a purely MS Word solution.)

I use the control TJvCaptionPanel from the popular JVCL Library in a Delphi 10.1 VCL Application. (The JVCL Library is a very useful library which can easily be installed with one click from the GetIt Package Manager. Precondition: JCL Library has to be installed first).

This is how it looks:

Clipboard-Image.png
As you can see, the CaptionButton JvCaptionPanel1.Buttons[capHelp] (which seems to be a SpeedButton) has a caption "?" with an UGLY font:

button-magnified.png
Unfortunately, TJvCaptionPanel does not have a property to set the caption font for the button.

Is it possible to "patch" the component TJvCaptionPanel in code and set a new font for the button without deriving a new component from TJvCaptionPanel?
