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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

How to add Corel supplied fonts from CorelConnect. I own CorelDraw 2017. CorelConnect is supplied with the 2017 package. There are supposed to be a very large number of downloadable TrueType fonts available for download at no additional cost. Can anyone show me step by step how to see the available fonts and how to download them into my Windows 10 computer?

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?

Emails from Mac are having fonts changed randomly. One user is complaining that everything seems okay on his Mac, however, he noticed that when people reply to his emails, his [art has different font and size to the one he used to send that email. We did some testing and it is definitely his machine. He is using Outlook 2011 for Mac and Mail. He has Mac OS X version 10.10.5. We are using Office 366 and he has Exchange account added to his email programs.
I was thinking about disabling Rich Text options on the email server and only leaving Plain Text and HTML.

How can I make sure that his emails look all the same?

Really like the Avenir font.  Tried to use it for a text-intensive website.  Didn't look to good.  Too light / feathery.  

Is there an Avenir-like font that looks good on a Phone and on PC?  Avenir looked NICE on a big screen, but was just not "there" enough on the phone.

Thanks!

What are design guidelines - should we (can we?!) set the phone version of a website to use Font A, while display on PCs uses Font B?

Thanks!

I have a client that runs an accounting program that was written in Cobol about 30+ years ago. This program runs inside a DOS environment. About 15 years ago, we introduced an enhancement to their invoicing program that prints barcodes on their invoices which contain the invoice #. We use this later on in their invoicing process to automate scanning and naming the invoices. The way we accomplished this was by buying for lack of a better word, a parallel port dongle, that had barcode fonts in it. We were then able to put some print initialization strings in text boxes in the invoice format program, and then the barcode would print out on the dot matrix printer as the invoice was printed. Now the device is a zillion years old, the client still uses the same software, but would like to get rid of the "dongle" Does anyone have any idea of how one might go about accomplishing this without the "dongle"

I'm trying to figure out why foreign fonts aren't showing up on my site. I have checked that UTF-8 is in the meta and that the font (Open Sans) is capable of displaying the correct font. I even tried adding the below code into the .htacess file with no luck. Anyone know what could be wrong?

AddType 'text/html; charset=utf-8' .html

Open in new window


This is the page with the issue and a screenshot is attached: https://www.herecomestheguide.com/real-wedding/tag/Indian
This is  the page where it's showing correctly (see title):  https://www.herecomestheguide.com/northern-california/wedding-services/anais-event-planning-design/real-weddings

Title under the image doesn't display foreign character

Is there a preferred font for Winform .Net Applications targeting Win 7 to Win 10 (and possibly recent Server editions as well) that doesn't font redistribution?   I think that the standard MS San Serif looks awful, especially when bolded.  I was leaning towards using Calibri.  This would mainly be for a screen font, but may be used for reports as well. If Calibri isn't a good font for this, would you recommend anything else?

On a UserForm I have a label control where I want to put the caption 'right arrow symbol'. That would be   ¶ in the font Wingdings 3

I used this code

   
Dim cCont4 As Control

Open in new window


and looping over items in an array, with index i
  
        Set cCont4 = Frame1.Controls.Add("Forms.Label.1", "CopyOf")

      With cCont4
            .Caption = "¶"
            .Font.Name = "Wingdings 3"
            .AutoSize = True
            .Top = i * 22
            .Left = 390
            .Width = 60
            .Name = "lblPreview" & arrSections(1, i)
        End With

Open in new window


The Font isn't being set to "Wingdings 3"

I can't figure out why that is. Tried other fonts also. Still shows "¶"

What am I doing wrong?
Thanks

When i executed below code why i am getting '?' for the first case as i know for codepage 932, which also support line draw characters How this API deals with codepages , AFAIK it search and map the character in the codepage then returns position of character from the codepage.

    typedef struct dbcs {
    unsigned char HighByte;
    unsigned char LowByte;
    } DBCS;

static DBCS set[5] = {0x25,0x5D};
unsigned char array[2];

#include <windows.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
   // printf("hello world");
    int str_size;
    LPCWSTR                 charpntr;
    LPSTR                   getcd;
    LPBOOL                  flg;
int i ;
array[0] = set[0].LowByte;
array[1] = set[0].HighByte;
charpntr = &array;
str_size = WideCharToMultiByte(932, 0, charpntr, 1, getcd, 2, NULL,NULL);
printf(" value of %u",getcd);
printf("number of bytes %d character is  %s",str_size,getcd);
printf("\n");


array[0] = set[0].LowByte;
array[1] = set[0].HighByte;
charpntr = &array;
str_size = WideCharToMultiByte(437, 0, charpntr, 1, getcd, 2, NULL,NULL);
printf(" value of %u",getcd);
printf("number of bytes %d character is  %s",str_size,getcd);
printf("\n");

}

Hi Experts,
I am generating a email from Access 2010 in Outlook 2010 with the following code.

Dim MsgText As String
MsgText = MsgTextSection00 & MsgTextSection10 & MsgTextSection20 & MsgTextSection30 & MsgTextSection40 & _
          MsgTextSection50 & MsgTextSection60 & MsgTextSection70
DoCmd.SendObject , , acFormatRTF, MsgToAddress711, , , MsgEmailSubject711, MsgText, True, False

The Email is created as Plain Text but the Font is not Non-Proportional.  e.g. Courier New 10.

Is there a way to specify that the email will be Plan Text so that the Font is Courier New 10?

Thanks,
Bob C.

Dear Experts,

My client want to deploy two sets of font for his colleagues who are using Office365 / Office 2016.

I read that the settings needs to be done individually for each users MS Office program.

Is there a way to use GPO to deploy the font and enforce that these will be the default fonts for its MS Office application?

In my Delphi project for Windows, I often render Japanese text on TCanvas of an image. Unfortunately, the vertical position of the rendered characters depends on the font family. When the font is MS Mincho or MS Gothic, it's positioned perfectly well. When it's Tahoma, the text goes a bit down. When it's Yu Mincho or Kozuka Gothic, it goes down a lot. So it's really difficult to align the text for all possible fonts. I need to calculate some parameter for every font to move the position upwards.

Some experts from another forum recommended to use the parameters from TTextMetric. There are several: tmAscent, tmDescent, tmExternalLeading, tmInternalLeading, etc. Theoretically, a certain combination of them and the font size in pixels should give me the desired value. But whatever I tried didn't work so far.

There must be a way to do it. Any ideas?
