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 running Windows 10 on my computer.  I have two excellent photo editing programs (Corel Paintshop Pro 2019 and Cyberlink Photo Director 9).  They are both a lot more than I need, but Microsoft stopped supporting their simple photo editing program so I had to move on.   I am trying to insert a text layer over an existing image.  The image has a pale pink background, so I need to have the text layer be transparent.  I can't figure out how to do that.  Both programs allow me to insert text, but neither allows me to select the font I want (even though the font is listed in the drop down font selection menu).  Can you please help … or direct me to a simpler program that will allow me to do this?

Thanks,

Phil

ASP.NET Web form with VB.NET.    I have legend on the form.  I tried using the Wingdings3 font.  It looks fine in design view.  When I run it in IE11 it does not show in the Wingdings3 font.  It just shows the letter you use instead.  

So I thought I would try an imagebox control.  It will not browse to the image folder of my project for some reason.  So I dragged/dropped the image from folder to design view.  Again it shows in design view, but does not show at runtime in IE11.

The method I prefer to use as it is the easiest and looks best is to use the Wingdings3 font.    
How do I get it to show at runtime?

If there is no other way, then I guess I will use the image.  I'm guessing it will not be transparent around the symbol - :( .   It has a border around it too.   :(
How do I get rid of the border and get it to show at runtime?

Here is what it looks like in the designer.  The symbols on the left are the images (made using the Windows Snipping tool on the Wingdings).  The symbols on the right are the Wingdings3 font:

Here is what it looks like in IE11 at runtime:

I'm using Windows 2007. When I hover over the programs shown in the lower bar, a thumb pops up describing it, and sometimes thumbs pop up for all of the programs down there, as shown in  the attached image. How can I change the font used in the title of these thumbs? The small  white text is too hard to read.

Hello,

I am converting Crystal Reports to BI Publisher.  BI Publisher uses MS Word for the visual display.  I am extremely inept at look and feel.  Attached you will find 2 samples of text. The crystal uses Arial 8 for these labels.  When I use Arial 8, in word it does not display the same amount of text.  

What font would you suggest to get the same look and quantity of letters in .

Thanks in advance,

Brock

I was wondering that is it possible find specific text with certain style applied in it and convert with another text and style?

For example:
i) If we find "5" text with font MathematicalPi-One applied in it than it should be converted into "=" with style Arial Unicode MS. And highlight the changes.

ii) And we have a list of items which we have to convert with them, than what will be the shortest and fastest macro to do the same?

Thanks.

Email to a client is being delivered with wingdings font and not in Chinese as it's supposed to. The email originates from their partner who reports that there's nothing unusual their side.

Whole email message including the subject field is in wingdings (mostly question marks) although it should be showing in simplified Chinese. The same issue is seen on OWA and not just the local Outlook client. Client is on O365 running Outlook 2013.

I have tried changing language on OWA and Outlook to English and also tried changing the encoding language on Outlook with no positive effect.

Does this indicate a language error? I have read some people saying that this may happen due to the sender using a wingdings emoticon. Or could this possibly be an issue on the sender's side?

Hi Experts,

I have following code to convert from characters into signatures.
  
  Dim str As String
  str = "{" & """values""" & ":" & Me.Signature & "}"  


        Dim Json As Dictionary
        Set Json = JsonConverter.ParseJson(str)
        Dim Values As Variant
     
        
        Dim Value As Dictionary
        
        If Len(Signature & "") > 1000 Then
    
            Me.ScaleMode = 3
            Me.LabelPatientSignature.FontSize = 8
        Else
            Me.ScaleMode = 1
            Me.LabelPatientSignature.FontSize = 7
        End If
        
 'If Len(Me.Signature) < 200 Then Me.DrawWidth = 5
 
        For Each Value In Json("values")
        If Len(Signature) > 100 Then
            Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx"), Value("ly"))-(1200 + Value("mx"), Value("my")), vbBlack
        Else
            Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx"), Value("ly") - 5)-(1200 + Value("mx") + 10, Value("my") + 5), vbBlack, BF
        End If
         'Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx"), Value("ly") - 5)-(4000, Value("my") + 5), vbBlack, BF
'Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx") - 5, Value("ly") - 2)-(1200 + Value("mx") + 5, Value("my") + 2), vbRed
        Next Value

I want to change the font color of a row to white when an order is Priority = 1 with the database. I assume I will accomplish this by using CSS.
I am using third party that came with our ERP which displays dashboards. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how
to accomplish this? below is the complete sql statement I am using to display results in the dashboard. Also attached a screenshot of how the
results are displayed.

SELECT WO_NUMBER AS WONUM
      ,PART_NUMBER AS PN
      ,DESCRIPTION AS DESCR
      ,PRIORITY
      ,CASE CONTRACT_TYPE WHEN 'PBH Pool' THEN 'PBH' ELSE 'TM' END AS CONTRACT
      ,DAYS_OPEN AS TAT
      ,CASE WARRANTEE_FLAG  WHEN 'F' THEN ' ' WHEN 'T' THEN 'W' END AS INFO
      ,TECHNICIAN AS TECH
,case when days_open > 5 or priority >= 1 then '#ff0000' else case when days_open > 3  then '#f68835' else '#66b65d' end end row_color
  FROM BA_VIEW_WIP_SHOP_SCREENS
  WHERE STATUS IN ('OPEN', 'AWT SHOP EVAL', 'SHOP EVALUATION') AND SHOP = 'SH AVIONIC ARO'

Hi - We are having a strange issue with our company policy, and several other word docs. We are storing it on a server, where if we open the file on the server, it opens and looks normal. If we open it on a computer, the entire document looks like its defaulted to a "bar code" font, and the font name is still the same and hasn't changed on both server and PC! No idea why this is happening - please see attached pic - any help is appreciated.

This is the icon I want to use: https://fontawesome.com/icons/cloud-upload-alt?style=solid

A user I support needs to know how she can expand the "Edit Text" fields within an Adobe Acrobat XI Pro document she is modifying.

For example, when the "Edit Text and Images" option is selected within Acrobat PDF documents Acrobat automatically defines the borders for the text and images. When these borders are clicked on and dragged (in an attempt to expand them) the entire block of text is moved.

How can these borders be expanded to larger sizes (or simply deleted) without affecting the text and images contained within the block?

The user needs to be able to type text that will extend beyond these predefined borders.

We have recently change the font in the key documents generated from our  business software. We changed from Arial  to Gotham in all pdf's generated from the system.  Now we find that we cannot drill in to edit the documents. When we click into the object being generated it only focuses on the outer page frame. i.e. the handles appear in the outer page frame but you cannot drill into the objects within. I have the Gotham fonts [ otf's and ttf's] installed in the machine where the editor is installed.  The documents have no security settings and they allow editing. We have tried Nitro 9 and Nitro 11 but get the same results.  Has anybody any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

For some reason, the font size of a few items on my Windows 7 have gone small and I have no idea why.

Here are a few examples:

As you can see, that text size of the tab headers have become smaller and also the dark blue color for selecting items in Chrome doesn't look like the usual one:



Also, the right click menu has become shorter in font size:



and this is how the "Properties" window pane looks like, which doesn't look normal:



I think one fix somewhere would solve this problem. Trying Windows Restore only brought up this prompt:



Would appreciate any insights on this. Thank you.

Need a Sans Serif font suggestion that jumps out from a sea of San Serif font text-heavy pages.  To offset a title.

Clarendon, a serif font, visually does the trick, but it's so schoolbookish that it slows down the ethos of the page.  Anything SANS Serif that would achieve a similar nice-way-to-see-this-is-a-title effect?

Thanks!

MS Access Chart Wizard in Access 2013 is freaking out and totally unusable.  I can't even create a simple pie chart, as any reformatting attempts generate wildly erratic results in fonts and object sizes and locations.  My mouse wheel, or the scroll bars on the MS Graph editing window seem connected to the parameters of all the reports objects, and instead of just positioning the display of the report I'm working on, scroll bar movement resizes ALL of the report objects.  I've uninstalled MS Access 2013 runtime, and a second installation of MS Access 2010, and I've changed to a basic Windows Theme on my Windows 10 OS.  Is there anything else I should be trying?
