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.

MFC CComboBox won't display wide characters.
I'm using VS 2008, UNICODE is defined in the build and all of the prompts and other strings in the app are coming out fine.
The first try I just added the strings like any combobox and the display and dropdown showed a black line for each
character like the font was wrong.

I tried to SetFont to no avail.

I went to an owner-drawn combo box with no change.
The string shows correctly in the debugger (both in the watch and in the hover box).
the string is "Активна" and, copied from the debugger window,  shows up fine in WordPad.

In DrawItem I did:

      CString fontName;
      CDC dc;
      dc.Attach(lpDrawItemStruct->hDC);
      dc.GetTextFace(fontName);

//fontName is "MS Sans Serif" which is is expected and what I am using in the rest of my app and is reported to support Cyrillic.
//The rest is :

      CString thisString;
      GetLBText(lpDrawItemStruct->itemID, thisString);      

//note that at this point,  thisString shows to have the correct string in the debugger

      dc.TextOut(rc.left+iOffsetX, rc.top + iPosY,thisString);      

And I get " ||||||| "  in the combo box (both edit box and dropdown).

      dc.TextOut(rc.left+iOffsetX, rc.top + iPosY,L"TESTSTRING");
works fine.

Any ideas would be helpful...I've been working this way too long.

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?

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

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);
                }
            }

Hi,

I have started looking after a Citrix infrastructure where users are using Linux based thin clients running XenDesktop. A couple of users have complained that fonts rendering on few of SharePoint sites are fuzzy.

Is there any clear type settings that I need to emable or disable on server or client side?

I have an Adobe Livecycle generated form, the form is hosted on an intranet, and it collects few pieces of information from users, I'm trying to add a "save as" button onto the form so that users can save, print, email the form along with the data entered, so I added a "save as" button with the relative javascript line (app.execMenuItem("SaveAs"), but when I preview it I get an error;
Save a Blank Copy of this Form, Data typed into this form will not be saved.

What's the work around and what do you recommend.

Thx

I have two Graphic Designers using the same versions of Adobe InDesign and Acrobat DC Pro. One of the users is running Windows 7 and the other Windows 10. The Windows 10 client has an issue with missing Helvitica fonts when printing PDF documents created in InDesign. If the document is printed with InDesign it comes out perfectly. The other user has no issues. Both clients are using the same driver printing to the same printer. I am assuming this is a Windows 10 issue. I am looking for a resolution without having to rebuild this client with Windows 7.

Hi Experts,
I need to print a report (in Visual Fox Pro 9) with a Font that I cannot find to download in the web. The Font name is  Font B11 and it is used in Epson Fiscal Printers. I assume they are installed in the printer driver. Any idea how can I import it from the driver and install it in the Windows/ fonts directory?
thanks a lot
