Fonts Typography





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.

Dear All,
I have a problem with a customized Windows based application which is developed in .NET.

It is a conversion application used to transliterate text in romanized format into native languages viz. Chinese, Urdu and the like; using the font Arial Unicode MS which follows the Unicode Standard. The conversion used to take place correctly until recently when we changed our operating system from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 r2.

Interestingly, a bizzare event is happening. Suppose we want to translitereate Romanized script into two languages A and B. Using the application If we transliterate language A first then it gets converted correctly. After that language B converts incorrectly. Following it in second attempt after re-running the application if we transliterate language B first, it gets converted correctly following it with Language A, conversion gets inccorect.

I built a wpf application for a screen resolution of 1920*1080 ...
however the user will sometimes use a resolution 3810*2160.
How to i make my application so it keeps its aspect ratio in a way that if in a screen resolution of 1920*1080  occupies 80% of screen then in a screen resolution of 3840*2160 it also occupies 80% of screen.
I will be looking into font sizes and all that stuff too... but at least for now I need that the grids, windows and controls all resize accordingly.

I am needing a revolving server system that changes IP address once it starts getting hits from sever filters. It needs to be seamless and use the same email address that we establish to send emails out from, but configures a different IP with every 50 to 100 emails. This is what we need to get a marketing job done and the email messages we want to send have to fit the character count specifics and font type. The subject line is the most important and the size cannot exceed X kilobytes for the total email to reach target market.

I need to use various fonts for various parts of text in TRichEdit, Delphi Tokyo. For part of the text I need 'Times New Roman' and for the other 'Symbol'. So far does not work what I tried. Either font is set the samo for the whole text or my selected character does not show up.
I wrote code that outputs ZPL and sends it to Zebra printers - both are model Zebra 2824.  Both were purchased used.

One printer prints the label beautifully in a TrueType font.  The other printer renders the same ZPL in blocky oversized letters.   Does anyone have any suggestions?

Sample ZPL below:
^FDItem Number: 205-000004-003^FS^CI0
^FDExpiration Date: 05/31/18^FS^CI0

I have checked:
1. The printer set up (Red Hat Linux) is identical
2. The printers are the same model (Zebra 2824)
3. The printers have the same fonts installed (Printed the font list from each and the output is identical)

What else might I be missing?   Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We are creating hundreds of C#.NET forms by reading the VFP source and writing the .cs code.

The height, width, top, and bottom of all objects are identical.  The font is identical (exception MS Sans Serif is changed to Microsoft Sans Serif.  Also same font size.

The spacing and size of the objects are slightly different.  Enough to make a mess when the objects(labels, textboxes) are close together.

We need them to be identical. Any suggestions?

When use Php readdir native function, names of the files that used Cyrillic font appear to be different. By different, I mean “the names look like question marks like this ????” Please solve this issue. Please refer to below for an example.

$dir = "C:/xampp/hdocs/Terminal/uploads20180427te";
function ReadFolderDirectory($dir)
      $listDir = array();
      if($handler = opendir($dir)) {
            while (($sub = readdir($handler)) !== FALSE) {
                  if ($sub != "." && $sub != ".." && $sub != "Thumb.db") {
                        if(is_file($dir."/".$sub)) {
                              $listDir[] = $sub;
                              $listDir[$sub] = ReadFolderDirectory($dir."/".$sub);
      return $listDir;
$files = ReadFolderDirectory($dir);

Windows keeps popping up with a message saying "insufficient memory or disk space. word cannot display selected font" it will also only let me select calibri, as in no other fonts show in the drop down menu. Along with this I can't delete stuff only backspace it. I recently updated word to the 2016 version and believe this may be linked.
I created a VB.NET web page that uses the iTextSharp functionality to transform an HTML page to a PDF dynamically.  

The name of the page is feespdf.aspx and it transforms the page FeesForPDF.aspx to a PDF when requested by the user on the page via a clickable link. No parameters are passed.

The problem I'm having is that our marketing department has given me some fonts that they want to use on the PDF - not a problem for simply displaying the ASPX page by using @font-face tags in the CSS file.  But the OTF-formatted font they gave me is not displaying on the PDF. The text that the OTF font is used on is defaulting to Arial.   The other font is an .SVG file and it came with two CSS files that define it (and are referenced on FeesForPDF.aspx). The SVG font works fine, the OTF font is ignored.  

Here's the code of my sub that does the PDF generation.  
	Protected Sub ProcessPDF()

		Dim docWorkingDocument As iTextSharp.text.Document = New iTextSharp.text.Document(iTextSharp.text.PageSize.A4.Rotate(), 25, 25, 25, 25)

		Dim cssFileLocation As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("PDFPrintCSSlocation").ToString()
		Dim strHtml As String
		Dim strCSS As String
		'Dim memStream As New MemoryStream()
		Dim strWriterHTML As New StringWriter()
		Dim strWriterCSS As New StringWriter()

		Server.Execute("FeesForPDF.aspx", strWriterHTML)
		strHtml = strWriterHTML.ToString()

I am working with a large MS Word file (hundreds of pages).  It contains many, many tables.  I would like to select the first row of every table, make the font 8 point Times New Roman, and center the text within the first row.  I found a solution that accomplishes everything but center the text of the row.
Calibri Bold Print Issue;

When printing certain documents with Calibri Bold, the job either errors in queue or the printer errors and cancels the job.  This can be reproduced using Wordpad on different environments, server 2012R2, Windows 10, Windows 7, Office 2013, Office 2016.  Printer makes, Olivetti, Ineo, Ricoh, Konica Minolta and HP.  If you change the first letter of the document from bold to standard Calibri it prints without issue.  Firmware has been updated in one case, however the issue remained.

We have also tried replacing the font with an older versions , however this makes no difference and the job still errors or doesn't print.  The only work around is to change the driver to PCL5, PS or adjust the PCL 6 driver to render the font as Bitmap, or Raster instead of vector and the problem documents print fine.

We know there have been issues with the Calibri font in the past, however there must have been something possibly an update to the printer engine that has caused this issue to start occurring.  Any help gratefully received.

Dear Experts ,

I have some old Word document files (.doc) which seem partially corrupted or the font file is missing.

The document will open with no error but part of the message has strange characters instead of letters.

Please find hereunder a sample. The letter is written in Greek language but you will notice that part of the letters is not showing up correctly.
Currently I am using MS Word 2007.

Any idea how to recover the strange characters?
I have a macro (Extract Rows by Text) that searches user-entered text in a user-defined range in an Excel worksheet and copies those rows containing that txt to a new workbook. It also applies font size of 16 and red bold to each occurrence of the found text in the extract. The macro include another userform that display the macro’s progress and shows it as a percentage.

The problem is that I don’t know how to get an exact count of the rows as the macro searches them. Any given row could have more than one occurrence of the string to be searched, so using that count won’t work.  I set up a ‘Loopcounter = Loopcounter + 1’ in each loop (one that matches whole word and one that doesn’t) just after the Do loop starts in an attempt to capture each row iteration rather than each successful find, but that count goes well over 100% while the macro is still running. As a stopgap, I added ‘If nPercentage >= 1 Then nPercentage = 1’ just after the nPercentage variable is populated so that the display at least looks accurate.

But I’d rather find out if there’s a way to get an accurate running count of each row that the macro looks at, regardless of whether it finds the user string or whether it finds more than one occurrence. Can someone suggest a way to do this?

The macro is attached and include a text database; to see how it works, enter [1] as the search and select the entire column of B. You will get 211 hits in a separate workbook with each occurrence of ‘[1]’ in bold red …
I have a user who is getting a long delay (5-10 seconds) when clicking on the fonts drop down in Word 2013 (and Outlook) and then it's really slow to scroll or select.  If I open in safe mode it's not an issue.  So I disabled the only add-on I could but that didn't fix it.  I tried repairing Office--full reinstall.  I tried deleting the user profile and logging back in and it's still slow.  So now I'm trying to mess with the fonts, but only managed to get it so we only see 2 fonts now and am working to restore it.  It's not a problem if I log in as a local account.  This user does have AppData redirected which is not ideal, but other users are not having this issue.
I haven't done Maven settings in my current application I have no idea on how to implement those on Intellij FX application.

So When I try to change Glyph Name in Scene Builder, It doesn't change. As you can see below image, Anchor image hasn't change to Address book. I am using 1.9 FontAwesome package.

Fonts Typography





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.
