Fonts Typography





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 am needing a revolving server system that changes IP address once it starts getting hits from sever filters. It needs to be seamless and use the same email address that we establish to send emails out from, but configures a different IP with every 50 to 100 emails. This is what we need to get a marketing job done and the email messages we want to send have to fit the character count specifics and font type. The subject line is the most important and the size cannot exceed X kilobytes for the total email to reach target market.
Hi Experts,

I have following code to convert from characters into signatures.
  Dim str As String
  str = "{" & """values""" & ":" & Me.Signature & "}"  

        Dim Json As Dictionary
        Set Json = JsonConverter.ParseJson(str)
        Dim Values As Variant
        Dim Value As Dictionary
        If Len(Signature & "") > 1000 Then
            Me.ScaleMode = 3
            Me.LabelPatientSignature.FontSize = 8
            Me.ScaleMode = 1
            Me.LabelPatientSignature.FontSize = 7
        End If
 'If Len(Me.Signature) < 200 Then Me.DrawWidth = 5
        For Each Value In Json("values")
        If Len(Signature) > 100 Then
            Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx"), Value("ly"))-(1200 + Value("mx"), Value("my")), vbBlack
            Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx"), Value("ly") - 5)-(1200 + Value("mx") + 10, Value("my") + 5), vbBlack, BF
        End If
         'Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx"), Value("ly") - 5)-(4000, Value("my") + 5), vbBlack, BF
'Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx") - 5, Value("ly") - 2)-(1200 + Value("mx") + 5, Value("my") + 2), vbRed
        Next Value

So for example the code would take the following, stored in signature field

I want to change the font color of a row to white when an order is Priority = 1 with the database. I assume I will accomplish this by using CSS.
I am using third party that came with our ERP which displays dashboards. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how
to accomplish this? below is the complete sql statement I am using to display results in the dashboard. Also attached a screenshot of how the
results are displayed.

I have been tasked with finding out why some of the PDFs we receive as attachments through our web service results in garbled font.  I am an Oracle developer normally so this is a completely new area to me, and I don't even know what to google for.

We work with a third party vendor.  Providers upload documents to their site as either PDFs or Word documents.  The Word documents are converted to PDFs.  When their administrators review these documents after they are uploaded, they look fine to them, but after we receive them through our web service, the text overlaps itself.  Not all of them, only a few of them and seemingly from specific providers, who are customers of the third party, not our customers directly (so I can't ask them what they heck they are doing).  

If you look at the attachment, the first two examples show where there is a random letter in the middle of the sentence but it actually belongs at the end of the line.

In the third example, if you start pulling out the letters in red, you get, “year old female who was seen” and then if you pull out the rest of the letters you get “at the office today for follo”.  

I know very little about web services and almost nothing about the creation of PDFs.  Any ideas on where to start looking, and what terminology I should be using when I research?

Thank you!

I need to use various fonts for various parts of text in TRichEdit, Delphi Tokyo. For part of the text I need 'Times New Roman' and for the other 'Symbol'. So far does not work what I tried. Either font is set the samo for the whole text or my selected character does not show up.
I wrote code that outputs ZPL and sends it to Zebra printers - both are model Zebra 2824.  Both were purchased used.

One printer prints the label beautifully in a TrueType font.  The other printer renders the same ZPL in blocky oversized letters.   Does anyone have any suggestions?

Sample ZPL below:
^FDItem Number: 205-000004-003^FS^CI0
^FDExpiration Date: 05/31/18^FS^CI0

I have checked:
1. The printer set up (Red Hat Linux) is identical
2. The printers are the same model (Zebra 2824)
3. The printers have the same fonts installed (Printed the font list from each and the output is identical)

What else might I be missing?   Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We are creating hundreds of C#.NET forms by reading the VFP source and writing the .cs code.

The height, width, top, and bottom of all objects are identical.  The font is identical (exception MS Sans Serif is changed to Microsoft Sans Serif.  Also same font size.

The spacing and size of the objects are slightly different.  Enough to make a mess when the objects(labels, textboxes) are close together.

We need them to be identical. Any suggestions?
how to set font bold using generic text printer using vb6 printer.print code. Thanks for Advance
Hi - We are having a strange issue with our company policy, and several other word docs. We are storing it on a server, where if we open the file on the server, it opens and looks normal. If we open it on a computer, the entire document looks like its defaulted to a "bar code" font, and the font name is still the same and hasn't changed on both server and PC! No idea why this is happening - please see attached pic - any help is appreciated.

A user I support needs to know how she can expand the "Edit Text" fields within an Adobe Acrobat XI Pro document she is modifying.

For example, when the "Edit Text and Images" option is selected within Acrobat PDF documents Acrobat automatically defines the borders for the text and images. When these borders are clicked on and dragged (in an attempt to expand them) the entire block of text is moved.

How can these borders be expanded to larger sizes (or simply deleted) without affecting the text and images contained within the block?

The user needs to be able to type text that will extend beyond these predefined borders.

When use Php readdir native function, names of the files that used Cyrillic font appear to be different. By different, I mean “the names look like question marks like this ????” Please solve this issue. Please refer to below for an example.

We have recently change the font in the key documents generated from our  business software. We changed from Arial  to Gotham in all pdf's generated from the system.  Now we find that we cannot drill in to edit the documents. When we click into the object being generated it only focuses on the outer page frame. i.e. the handles appear in the outer page frame but you cannot drill into the objects within. I have the Gotham fonts [ otf's and ttf's] installed in the machine where the editor is installed.  The documents have no security settings and they allow editing. We have tried Nitro 9 and Nitro 11 but get the same results.  Has anybody any ideas?  Thanks in advance.
How do I change the Word 2016 default font to Arial 10 pt.?
Windows keeps popping up with a message saying "insufficient memory or disk space. word cannot display selected font" it will also only let me select calibri, as in no other fonts show in the drop down menu. Along with this I can't delete stuff only backspace it. I recently updated word to the 2016 version and believe this may be linked.
I created a VB.NET web page that uses the iTextSharp functionality to transform an HTML page to a PDF dynamically.  

The name of the page is feespdf.aspx and it transforms the page FeesForPDF.aspx to a PDF when requested by the user on the page via a clickable link. No parameters are passed.

The problem I'm having is that our marketing department has given me some fonts that they want to use on the PDF - not a problem for simply displaying the ASPX page by using @font-face tags in the CSS file.  But the OTF-formatted font they gave me is not displaying on the PDF. The text that the OTF font is used on is defaulting to Arial.   The other font is an .SVG file and it came with two CSS files that define it (and are referenced on FeesForPDF.aspx). The SVG font works fine, the OTF font is ignored.  

Here's the code of my sub that does the PDF generation.  
	Protected Sub ProcessPDF()

		Dim docWorkingDocument As iTextSharp.text.Document = New iTextSharp.text.Document(iTextSharp.text.PageSize.A4.Rotate(), 25, 25, 25, 25)

		Dim cssFileLocation As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("PDFPrintCSSlocation").ToString()
		Dim strHtml As String
		Dim strCSS As String
		'Dim memStream As New MemoryStream()
		Dim strWriterHTML As New StringWriter()
		Dim strWriterCSS As New StringWriter()

		Server.Execute("FeesForPDF.aspx", strWriterHTML)
		strHtml = strWriterHTML.ToString()
