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.

Word document with garbled caracters in print preview
We have a number of users who have problems with Word 2016 documents that when printed are seeing garbled characters in both print preview and with their print outs.

At first we suspected the problem to be only with one model of HP printer (LaserJet M605), but now it is happening when printing to a Ricoh MFP.

If the user toggles to a different printer and back to the desired printer, the problem with the fonts goes away.  But it comes back the next time or after working with a few documents later.

We have tried a variety of troubleshooting ideals but have not been able to find a permanent fix.

The computers are running Windows 10 1903 with Office 2016 365 subscription.
The printers are on Windows print server.

See the enclosed screenshot for a look at the document.

Thanks for any tips!

I need to query an ASP.NET C # page using Delphi and the ICs overbyte TSslHttpCli component. I can get the login page with "GET" authenticate with "POST" but when making a query on an internal form using "POST" I am logged out with session expired.

I have a simple font doing the operations, who can help I send the fonts already working and showing where the error is.

I am trying to configure a GPO to install a font on all my Win 10 machines.  I have followed several guides that are found everywhere online and the only part i'm having issues with is the fact that the GPO will not copy the font file into the C:\Windows\Fonts folder.

If I specify a different folder, such as C:\Temp\ OR even C:\Windows\ the font files are copied without an issue.

I am using Group Policy Preferences (Files) under "Computer Configuration".

What is so special about the Fonts folder in Win10?

Anyone have any suggestions?  I don't want to use PDQ Deploy or creating an MSI file.

Hello fellow Experts Exchange members:

I have a user whose Internet Explorer 11 is not displaying several (but not all) websites correctly.

The user reports fonts are incorrect and images either do not load or display incorrectly.

For an example, I have attached screenshots showing a business-critical website when viewed in Internet Explorer and Google Chrome on the user's computer.

Google Chrome (correct):
Google Chrome screenshot - correct
Internet Explorer (incorrect):
Internet Explorer screenshot - incorrect
Comparing the two screenshots, in Internet Explorer: the fonts that appear are different, the pop-up buttons appearing on the left and right of the central content with arrow symbols are displaying in a different language, and the Facebook and YouTube buttons on the top right are missing the Facebook and YouTube symbols.

(Surprisingly, Internet Explorer is displaying the correct phone number for the business while Google Chrome is displaying an incorrect phone number.)

I have tried the following:
  • Adding the website to the Trusted Sites list - no difference
  • Clearing the cache and having the browser download a new copy of the page each time a website is visited - no difference
  • Browsing in No-Addons mode - no difference
  • Using the Internet Options Control Panel applet to Reset the browser - no difference
  • Installing all Microsoft updates - no difference

Have any fellow Experts Exchange members encountered a similar situation and found a resolution?

Sincerely,

Kahn

I have a user that has an issue with PDF fonts on her Adobe. When she receives a PDF from one specific vendor the fonts seems to be weird characters not what its supposed to be. When she emails them to another user or checks on a different device, the font is Times New Roman, what it should be. How do i fix this? I need it  to ALWAYS reflect the current font from this vendor.  Is ther some sort of rule setup in adobe?

I Got the app to post to my server ??? what I though would be more difficult... I what I need is to have the app to show the Geolocation changes on the screen ... I need to post longitude and latitude to the screen... I'm also sending Altitude and speed to server ... I can not assign  the longitude and latitude to a variable ... I also thought it may be a lazy load so I move the Geolocation function  prior to the "createLabble" still error ... How can I get the e.coor.latitude to print to label

var lat = Ti.UI.createLabel({
		top : 215,
		left : 40,
		text : latitude,
		color : "black",
		font : {
			fontSize : 10
		}
	});
	var Long = Ti.UI.createLabel({
		top : 215,
		left : 200,
		text : "longitude",
		color : "black",
		font : {
			fontSize : 10
		}
	});

Open in new window

function getLocation() {
	Ti.Geolocation.getCurrentPosition(function(e) {
		console.log(e);
		var latitude = e.coord.latitude;
	    var longitude = e.coord.longitude;
		
	});
}

Open in new window

Get this error
Script Error {
[ERROR] :      column = 19;

I have just used RAD Studio Tokyo to complete my first program for Android. I have this program running well on my Amazon Fire.

There is one odd problem I am having with text. I am using Edit boxes for entry and display of numbers. Everything looks perfect at design time. But when I run it on the Fire, all of the numbers in the edit boxes are slightly cut off at the bottom as if they didn't quite fit into the edit boxes.

For a while I tried to make the edit boxes taller, but every time I changed the Height setting, it reverted to what it had been. I thought I had successfully made the edit boxes taller in the style designer. Apparently it reverted again.

It looks to me like the text should fit and so I suspect it might not be a matter of the text being too large for the edit box. Currently my Font is probably default, tahoma. I changed one Edit to Ariel, but they look exactly the same to me.

Currently the text is set to 28 and the height of the edit is 32. I would like to change this to 36. It won't let me change the height of the edit. I have text align set to center for both horizontal and vertical. I tried the other two settings for vertical. One moves the text up and now the top of the numbers are cut off. The other one lowers it and then there is even more of the bottom of the numbers being cut off.

I tried using a smaller font and that does fix it, when I get down to 24. But really I would rather have larger text in taller edit boxes.

How can I …

Thanks to some expert advice obtained from this web site I can now successfully print a text file complete with a print dialog box. As was to be expected the users are now requesting the output to also be available in pdf format plus they want some values to be bold and others in a different font. Using C# how do I go about creating a pdf file and then formatting values on a record? Any tips and/or links would be greatly appreciated.

I copied the Georgia font from windows to the appropriate folder on my AS/400 and am trying to use it in a *AFPDS printer file.  In the DDS I've tried identifying the font by file name georgia.ttf and by font name Georgia, but it is not printing correctly.  What am I doing wrong?

I'm very novice in Sharepoint and I understand I have to use Sharepoint Designer 2013 to change maybe Oslo.html or some css files.
Please tell me what is the easiest way to change that font size on the top menu?
I would like to have exact information what to do and how and where. Thanks in advance!

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.

Regards.

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 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:
^XA
^FT30,755^A@B,30,28,TT0003M_^FH\^CI17^F8
^FDItem Number: 205-000004-003^FS^CI0
^FDExpiration Date: 05/31/18^FS^CI0
^FT420,755^A@B,30,28,TT0003M_^FH\^CI17^F8
^B3B,N,60,Y,N^FDC200002^FS^CI0
^PQ4,0,1,Y^XZ


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?
