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.

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.

See http://fsswp.petewinter.com/contact-us/

Look at the file upload area. The grey mark in the middle should be a font awesome icon. I need to set this as a background image using the css :before selector. However it is not showing.

See this page for how it should look http://fss.petewinter.com/contact_us.html , but I can't code like this.

This is the icon I want to use: https://fontawesome.com/icons/cloud-upload-alt?style=solid

Please can you help work out what I have done wrong?

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.

$dir = "C:/xampp/hdocs/Terminal/uploads20180427te";
function ReadFolderDirectory($dir)
{
      $listDir = array();
      if($handler = opendir($dir)) {
            while (($sub = readdir($handler)) !== FALSE) {
                  if ($sub != "." && $sub != ".." && $sub != "Thumb.db") {
                        if(is_file($dir."/".$sub)) {
                              $listDir[] = $sub;
                        }elseif(is_dir($dir."/".$sub)){
                              $listDir[$sub] = ReadFolderDirectory($dir."/".$sub);
                        }
                  }
            }
            closedir($handler);
      }
      return $listDir;
}
$files = ReadFolderDirectory($dir);
var_dump($files );die;

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.

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()
		strWriterHTML.Close()
		strWriterHTML.Dispose()
		Server.Execute(cssFileLocation,

For some reason, the font size of a few items on my Windows 7 have gone small and I have no idea why.

Here are a few examples:

As you can see, that text size of the tab headers have become smaller and also the dark blue color for selecting items in Chrome doesn't look like the usual one:



Also, the right click menu has become shorter in font size:



and this is how the "Properties" window pane looks like, which doesn't look normal:



I think one fix somewhere would solve this problem. Trying Windows Restore only brought up this prompt:



Would appreciate any insights on this. Thank you.

I am working with a large MS Word file (hundreds of pages).  It contains many, many tables.  I would like to select the first row of every table, make the font 8 point Times New Roman, and center the text within the first row.  I found a solution that accomplishes everything but center the text of the row.

Calibri Bold Print Issue;

When printing certain documents with Calibri Bold, the job either errors in queue or the printer errors and cancels the job.  This can be reproduced using Wordpad on different environments, server 2012R2, Windows 10, Windows 7, Office 2013, Office 2016.  Printer makes, Olivetti, Ineo, Ricoh, Konica Minolta and HP.  If you change the first letter of the document from bold to standard Calibri it prints without issue.  Firmware has been updated in one case, however the issue remained.

We have also tried replacing the font with an older versions , however this makes no difference and the job still errors or doesn't print.  The only work around is to change the driver to PCL5, PS or adjust the PCL 6 driver to render the font as Bitmap, or Raster instead of vector and the problem documents print fine.

We know there have been issues with the Calibri font in the past, however there must have been something possibly an update to the printer engine that has caused this issue to start occurring.  Any help gratefully received.

Need a Sans Serif font suggestion that jumps out from a sea of San Serif font text-heavy pages.  To offset a title.

Clarendon, a serif font, visually does the trick, but it's so schoolbookish that it slows down the ethos of the page.  Anything SANS Serif that would achieve a similar nice-way-to-see-this-is-a-title effect?

Thanks!

MS Access Chart Wizard in Access 2013 is freaking out and totally unusable.  I can't even create a simple pie chart, as any reformatting attempts generate wildly erratic results in fonts and object sizes and locations.  My mouse wheel, or the scroll bars on the MS Graph editing window seem connected to the parameters of all the reports objects, and instead of just positioning the display of the report I'm working on, scroll bar movement resizes ALL of the report objects.  I've uninstalled MS Access 2013 runtime, and a second installation of MS Access 2010, and I've changed to a basic Windows Theme on my Windows 10 OS.  Is there anything else I should be trying?

Wondering if there is a software application, phone app or tool that can identify a FONT from an image? I could spend hours trying to figure it out and wondered if some clever monkey has created something that does just that. For instance here is a logo I would like to identify what font this is if not custom in some way etc. I just like the lettering of this particular logo and want to use the font for my own purposes and wondered whether or not this can be traced back to its FONT origin?

Nested List / Outline list in Word 2016

Apply strikethrough to element in list

Strikethrough is ALSO applied to the number AND...all successive elements.

Strikethrough one thing on a list to to indicate "done" means...all new elements are also struckthrough, even the numbers.

Any way to apply strikethrough font to an element in a Word nested list without it applying to the number of the list item and, more importantly, to all the rest of the list?
