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.

[Webinar] Lessons on Recovering from Petya

Skyport is working hard to help customers recover from recent attacks, like the Petya worm. This work has brought to light some important lessons. New malware attacks like this can take down your entire environment. Learn from others mistakes on how to prevent Petya like worms.

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 have tried this on 3 different computers with Excel 2016 (Office 365 edition), with the same results.  This does not happen in Excel 2010 though.

1). I created a new document.
2). enter in any cell the following text: "this is a test                                      please make better"
3). Enable "Wrap Text"
4). Change font from Calibri 12 to Ariel 8, and bold the cell.
5). Save it. Close it.  Reopen it.  All looks good...
6). I make the 2nd line "please make this better" any color using Font Color tool.
7). Save it.  Reopen it, and now the 2nd line is Calibri 12, unbolded.  First line remains correct.  See images.

See my attached images, for a better idea.  

I cant figure out what the heck is going on and why this didnt happen on the Excel 2010 instance I have, only 2016.

Hi, I'm using After Effects CS5. -- I would like to preview what an actual font looks like, rather than having to select each font and previewing each one by one.

I was able to find a plug-in solution called FontList Plus, which sells for $29.99, but before I buy it, I was wondering if there was a free solution (preferably from Adobe) to preview AE CS5 fonts? Even a printed font list could work, although a "built in preview" feature would be very nice.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Fulano

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:

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?

Hi.

I am trying to change the  default font for outlook by changing the registry keys via group policy, but the group policy if not applying on the client PC's.I tested the Group policy for 6 PC's and the GP got applied on only one PC. Even though the policy got applied on one of the client PC, the registry values didn't changed.
Is there any possibility to change the default font of outlook via SCCM also.

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.

Outlook 2016 has been configured for use with a Bellsouth email address using POP.  The user has been experiencing random large text font in email replies that he receives.  The text enlargement appears in the text of the original message he sent.  The large text only appears in the Outlook client.  When checking the same email in the Bellsouth (now Yahoo!) web mail interface, text size appears normal.  Several support articles point to antivirus mail scanning being the culprit.  The support articles indicate that an additional 0 is added to the font size causing 10 point font to become 100 point font.  After not having success turning off mail scanning in the AV software (ESET Antivirus), antivirus was uninstalled completely.  The problem continues to occur.  Both AT&T and Yahoo! mail server addresses have been tested (inbound.att.net  port 995, outbound.att.net  port 465 / pop.mail.yahoo.com port 995, smtp.mail.yahoo.com port 465 or 587) including all combinations of inbound and outbound server addresses.  HTLM and Plain Text message types have been tested.  Does anyone have a solution to prevent the enlarged text from appearing?

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.

We have a client and now three of their users are having this issue where the bottom of letters are being cut off on outgoing and incoming emails when using Tahoma (their company standard) font.

Outlook version: 16.0.4266.1001
Office has been updated but did not resolve the issue.

Does anyone know how to resolve this please?

Kind regards,
Ian

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,

Hello Experts

I am having trouble using Email merge in Publisher 2013. Apparently my recipients are getting my newsletter in very low resolution
The text is rigid and the images are down sampled and it looks very bad...
I tried replacing the fonts with web compatible fonts (as Design Checker suggests) but still the result is the same low rez newsletter

Any clue Why is this happening? Are there any setting I should be aware of before sending? Any checklist?

I run 3 different browsers (Edge, Firefox and Chrome)

For some websites Chrome and Firefox display content garbled, and I have uninstalled, reinstalled them both, checked fonts, cleared caches, deleted browsing history, deleted all content and the issue just doesnt go away. It only happens for some websites (Facebook being one)

As an additional symptom, when I View source I get the same results - which would suggest its font related...

I dont want to rebuild (its my machine) but I am out of answers.... so throw something at me.
What the?
