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 about 3 months into figuring out wordpress (trying to). I have installed, customized, deleted and reinstalled many times over to get more and more comfortable with it and in using the "customize" sections of themes. The one thing that seems very clear to me is that different themes allow you to customize different aspects of fonts and colors. Some allow easy customizing to most aspects while  other themes do not allow a lot of customizing and also not so easily.

I have found that I spend a lot of time messing around with fonts & colors for all the various different aspects of the site (background, main text, button text, hover-over text, banner text, menu text, et.c etc.). So my question is this is there an easier way to add ccs code or some other mechanism to create a list of all these various features that need to be stipulated each time I reinstall or change a theme so that I have a sort of master file that I can use each time, something that stipulates what fonts and colors I want for all these features? Thank you.

In Word 2016, I have a user that will highlight an address and then open the envelope that it automatically fills in.  She has reset the default font settings.  However whenever she tries to do another envelope (this particular way) it keeps coming up as "+headings".  However if she just clicks mailings>envelopes it picks up the new font settings.

She does not merge and does not use labels. She only wants to do it this way.
Any suggestions on a fix??

See word documents attached. One of them is opened in 2010 and the other is opened in 2013. The one with 2013 appears to be correct while the other's 2010 version is incorrect. The fonts are the same. Is there anything that can be done to resolve this or why might this be the case?

Using Win 10.  From Settings, it's easy to uninstall fonts.  Need to uninstall some fonts, BUT...don't want to delete them.  Need to know how to uninstall the font(s), but put them somewhere in case I want to re-install them again.

Thanks!

Strange the fonts only change in Outlook on the remote device. Fine when I'm working remote however when I get into the office it's hard to work in Outlook on my desktop.  

To clarify only Outlook fonts are smaller everything else has not changed.

I'm using currently the project
https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/help/246227/sample-secumgr-exe-overrides-security-manager-for-webbrowser-host
to check if a web portal, for example http://fontello.com/, works fine with EOT, WOFF and TTF to displaying different icons.

It looks like fonts with the Content-Type application/vnd.ms-fontobject or application/font-woff could not be used with IWebBrowser2.
In the webtraffic i could see, that the app could download the fonts, but after the download i received the error E_ABORT in the IHttpNegotiate::OnResponse handler.

The web pages works in IE, but when we disable font download in the security settings we get the same 'problem' with the IE.

I tried to enable the font download in function IInternetSecurityManager::ProcessUrlAction
(URLACTION_HTML_FONT_DOWNLOAD) without a positive result.

What i'm doing wrong?

I am working with variable data and when I bring in my text (in Sinhala) which is correct in my data, it is changed as soon as it is placed in InDesign. What do I need to do in order to maintain the correct rendering of the text.

I can send you an example if you need to see what happens.

Is there something that needs to be done to add Sinhala to the World-Ready Composer?

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!

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.

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

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:

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?

There seems to be an issue when I change the font type of the announcement body (when using an announcement webpart). This is what I did:
1) Add a new announcement
2) Enter some text in the body field
3) Change the font type of the text and then change the colour
When i check the page where the announcement webpart is added (configured to summary view), the font type doesn't get updated and still remains as the default font type. After using the developer tools to check, i found that there seems to be a problem with the code when the font type is changed to font name with 2 words like "comic sans", or "lucida console". No such issue when i change the font to font name with 1 word e.g. impact, tahoma, calibri.
Some selected font types have this issue, i.e. comic sans, lucida console, basically all the font types with names that consist of 2 words.
Using the developer tools, it shows:
<span style="font-family:" lucida="" console",monaco,sans-serif;color:#ff0000;"="">testtest</span>
It seems that sharepoint automatically adds some "" to the font name and so the font type doesn't get displayed properly.

I am opening .eps files created from a CAD application that contain Helvetica.  My computer clearly has the font installed because other applications can use it and read it.  Adobe Illustrator does not see the Helvetica family nor does it show up in the list of available system fonts (within Illustrator).  The Windows/Fonts folder does show the Helvetica font.

I want to use a custom font in a navigation bar, that is fixed to the top of the page, because it is the clients font. You all tell me I can't use roll over images to use CSS for the bar, so how do I use a custom font?
Thanks,
