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 writing a chess program and I am trying to build an elegant graphical interface. I checked Jose chess program (http://jose-chess.sourceforge.net/) and it uses chess true type fonts to build the chessboard with the pieces. I dont want to build a 3d chessboard, just a 2D. I wonder how emulate Jose behaviour of chess pieces? I mean, how I can use the chess TTF the way Jose does to display a 2D chessboard? Any suggestion?

regards
Lopem

Ps. By the way, I tried this code:

Var
BMP : Tbitmap;
begin
bmp := tbitmap.create;
bmp.width := 800;
bmp.height := 600;
bmp.canvas.font.name := 'Arial';
bmp.canvas.font.size := 18;
bmp.canvas.font.style := [fsbold];
with bmp.canvas do
begin
beginpath(bmp.canvas.handle);
SetBKMode(Handle, TRANSPARENT);
textout(100, 100, 'TESTING');
endpath(bmp.canvas.handle);
brush.color := clBlue;
pen.color := clblack;
pen.width := 5;
StrokeAndFillPath(Handle);
end;
bmp.savetofile('C:\test.bmp');
bmp.free;
end;

It makes a bmp outlined of any TT font, but it doesnt get the result I was expecting.

Also, I tried:

with Image1.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas do
begin
  Font.Color := clBlue;
  Brush.Stule := bClear;
  Font.Size := 13;
  Font.Name := "Chess Merida";
  TextOut(10,10,'k');
end;

but the result is poor, like in the ZZZZZZ chess program (see image). Any ideas?

I have to tell you that also Chessbase (a chessgames database) use the same approach as the Jose chess program so I guess the code cant be so difficult …

This is weird.  An old document contains a bunch of text that was accidentally converted to Symbol font.

xxxxxxx Some of the text CANNOT be converted back to calibri  (it becomes all boxes)

xxxxxxx Nearly identical text CAN be converted back to calibri (it is the word "Davids")

Why are they different?  
How can I convert them both back to Calibri?

(I already know that copying from it Word to Excel does then back to Word, but I want a purely MS Word solution.)

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?

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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

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.

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?

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,
John

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?

When a machine starts Excel, they get an error each time that says Error 1907 Could not register font. Verify that you have permissions to install the font.

I can't get any other information about this other than there are registry areas that I don't have access to and I can't change the permissions to allow me to install this patch.

I have uninstalled updates
I have repaired the office 2010 installation
I have removed the latest excel patch but that didn't help

I have cleaned temp files
I have removed unnecessary registry items using CCleaner.


I have installed the excel patch again and am rebooting.
The excel patch for office 2010 installed on 4/17
The end user starting the issue
Right now, when I go into the event logs, I see issues there such as the following


The machiine is running Windows 7 x64 Pro
has 24GB of RAM
1TB HDD


All temp files have been cleared up.
There was some sort of Skype issue in the event logs yesterday. Something about not being able to remove the program or can't find the installation source files.

I tried reinstalling then removing but that didn't help.

Rebooted after running all available updates
Reinstalled Excel 2010 patch from yesterday.

No difference
If I launch Outlook, no error
If I launch Word, no error
If I launch Excel, I get Font installation error 1907 Could not register font.
This of course appears to have to do with registry permissions.

Example of registry errors:

Hi,
I have been all over Microsoft and cannot find a solution this this issue. I have a customer that receives emails with the address field in very large font, but the message is normal font. I have attached a picture of this odd issue. This screenshot doesn't show the body of the email, but the font is normal. The sender does not send it this way. This is how it arrives to receiver.
Thanks!

We were recently required to purchase Calibri font for a project whereby the stakeholders were already using the latest version of Microsoft Office and wanted all the content branding to be Calibri.  It was also for Arabic/English typeface.  The Microsoft website directs font enquiries and purchases to a specific site, where we found 'Calibri' for print, ebook and web subscription.  However upon purchasing I have noted that this is a 2008 version.  There are no other versions available.   So essentially for the layperson, what are the fundamental differences between the two?  Arabic is not actually included in 2008 for one.  Thanks

Thanks

I am working in an Android application using linphone. I am adding headers to my message to identify different types of conversation, headers are added correctly when a message contains text; however, when the headers are added to messages containing images, for some reason the image message is failing.

Here is the code where the image is process. (ChatFagment)

private void sendImageMessage(String path, int imageSize) {
LinphoneCore lc = LinphoneManager.getLcIfManagerNotDestroyedOrNull();
boolean isNetworkReachable = lc == null ? false : lc.isNetworkReachable();

if (this.isGroupChat || this.isConcierge) {

    invalidate();

    try {
        Bitmap bm = BitmapFactory.decodeFile(path);
        if (bm != null) {

            for (int i = 0; i < this.chatRooms.size(); i++) {

                LinphoneChatRoom chatRoom = this.chatRooms.get(i);
                if (chatRoom != null && path != null && path.length() > 0 && isNetworkReachable) {
                    FileUploadPrepareTask task = new FileUploadPrepareTask(getActivity(), path, imageSize);
                    task.execute(bm);
                } else if (!isNetworkReachable && LinphoneActivity.isInstanciated()) {
                    LinphoneActivity.instance().displayCustomToast(
                            getString(R.string.error_network_unreachable), Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
                }
            }

        } else {
            Log.e("Error, bitmap factory can't read " + path);
