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.

I have an Adobe Illustrator folder that contains the .ai file, PDF and other formats.

I need to upload a PDF book cover to a website to print copies of the book. But I get this error:

FONTS NOT EMBEDDED IN THE PDF: We require that all fonts be embedded. Please submit a new file with all fonts embedded. You may refer to the File Creation Guide for further instructions on creating a compliant PDF.

I have Adobe Actobat Pro on my machine, and presume I can add the 7 fonts contained in the Fonts folder to the PDF.

How do I do this?

Hi All:
I have 40 or so tables in a document which need to be modified.
I need a macro to
1) Find a Table,
2) select the first row in that table,
3) Change the font size of that table's first row to 16 pt and the font to Arial Bold
4) Repeat Step 1 2 and 3 until the end of the  document is reached.
5) Generate a message box saying "Done.".
This is a philosophical question really.  Lately I've been using both GUIs and CLIs for the same systems and got to wondering if there are "rules" or "standards" or "guides" that would tie the two together?  Otherwise, it seems that the trivial answer would be "no" - but that rather assumes that there IS NO glue between the two.  Is there?  Examples?

Here's a recent example:
I am working with PowerShell and was changing the font size in the ISE command window for a new monitor.  A couple of times the font size came back way too big - which seemed to have something to do with opening and closing windows etc.  Did the font size change at a fundamental level or somewhere in between?  Now then, generally this change is being done using the PowerShell ISE / Tools/ .. GUI..  So then I tried to find the font setting *using PowerShell* commands.  I wasn't successful .. but no matter.  That's one example of wondering if there's any sort of a tie that's documented for programmers?  In other words:
- if it's in the GUI then are there corresponding methods in the CLI?
- if it's in the CLI then are there corresponding methods in the GUI?  (I won't be at all surprised if the answer to this one is "no").  If the answer is "no" then how is the dividing line defined or described?  Or is it at all?

Here's another example:
Juniper networks' J-Web interface seems to me to be back-burnered.  It seems to have gotten worse over the years.  Changing from SRX2.. to SRX3.. is a big change in…
I would like to create a shortcut in vba to install fonts here's the info

argument=C:\myfolder\myfolder1\myfolder2\RegisterFont.exe add TEXASLED.ttf bold_led_board-7.ttf Codystar-Regular.ttf Codystar-Light.ttf enhanced_led_board-7.ttf

the program name is RegisterFont.exe located in the C:\myfolder\myfolder1\myfolder2 folder

There is a feature in fonts in Win 10 that allows you to hide the fonts.  

But, though they grey out inside the System > Fonts interface, they do not suppress themselves in programs, like word.  Still that long list.

Seen posts in Google lamenting the issue.  But, no solutions.

How does this look to you?


When I copy all the lines of text from a PPT text box (source data.pptx) and attempt to paste it into a word table as unformatted text, (test Destination.doc)  every line is correctly pasted except the last which changes to Times New Roman. Style names are the same but the last line in the destination cell changes into Times New Roman?  (See graphic and the two actual files )
Why is this happening?
How to stop it and the get the text to paste in one consistent destination font across all lines in the cell?
My users are pasting in text from MS-Word that includes a unicode chracter: ff (64256)

The field is ntext with collation set to: SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

I cannot even determine which rows contain the character I want to replace

Neither of these statements work:

SELECT * FROM mytable where comment LIKE NCHAR(64256)

SELECT * FROM mytable where comment LIKE N'%' + N'ff' + N'%'

I'm hoping that once I am informed enough on how to find the rows I'm after, I can user that knowledge to write a statement to replace this character with two actual f's rather than this character.
I have a user who when they open up certain Word files, the quotation marks are substituted with another character or letter. I can open the smae document on every other machine in our office (60 machines Win 7 and 10) with no problems.

I have tried this on 3 different computers with Excel 2016 (Office 365 edition), with the same results.  This does not happen in Excel 2010 though.

1). I created a new document.
2). enter in any cell the following text: "this is a test                                      please make better"
3). Enable "Wrap Text"
4). Change font from Calibri 12 to Ariel 8, and bold the cell.
5). Save it. Close it.  Reopen it.  All looks good...
6). I make the 2nd line "please make this better" any color using Font Color tool.
7). Save it.  Reopen it, and now the 2nd line is Calibri 12, unbolded.  First line remains correct.  See images.

See my attached images, for a better idea.  

I cant figure out what the heck is going on and why this didnt happen on the Excel 2010 instance I have, only 2016.
Hi, I'm using After Effects CS5. -- I would like to preview what an actual font looks like, rather than having to select each font and previewing each one by one.

I was able to find a plug-in solution called FontList Plus, which sells for $29.99, but before I buy it, I was wondering if there was a free solution (preferably from Adobe) to preview AE CS5 fonts? Even a printed font list could work, although a "built in preview" feature would be very nice.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,

My client wants to use he Comfortaa font on the website, and I suspect it is not available to everyone by default by just adding it to your CSS?

I notice that some sites that use it, import it from the fonts.googleapis.com? is that what's happening here?
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Comfortaa" />

But we can't do that, because our salesmen have a non-internet version that they show clients, and so it has to be available offline.

I've seen where you can download the font here:

But I don't know if that site is legit or just going to put spam and spyware on my machine.

Also, there is a download link on the right here, but I don't know if that is downloading this font or something else:

So the question is, when there is a custom font, how does one typically get it embedded for use into their website, and even their mobile app if possible?


I have always used Adobe Acrobat, but on your suggestion I am testing Nuance's Power PDF.  The thing that is most important to me is the ability to edit forms (either created by me or by others).  I am using a test form created by one of my client companies, and can't find a way for the Power PDF program to edit the font settings in the form.  This is an important feature.

I tried editing the font settings in Adobe Acrobat XI (which I currently use), and for the first time got a message that read "This form cannot be edited in Acrobat.  Please use Adobe's LiveCycle Designer to edit this form".  What is LiveCycle Designer, and is there no longer an Adobe product that will allow me to do what I need to do?  Or do I need to add the pricey LiveCycle to my Acrobat to get the form editing features?

One of my users is using Outlook 2011 on Mac with Exchange email account (Office 365). He has text based signature configured to appear in each email he sends.
We noticed that when people receive his emails the fonts are not the same size he used for composing emails. He used to size 8 Verdana for text and email but now we changed it to size 11 Verdana. Saved the settings and closed and reopened Outlook. When composing email it all looks fine. When I received his emails on Outlook 2016 Windows the fonts changed size 8 to size 6 and from size 11 to 8.5. We also checked some of his emails to which people replied and the fonts there vary from 8.5 to 12, but we don't know what email software recipients are using. We checked it in user's Sent items and it is fine there.
It looks like the emails this user is sending are all plain texts, at least the ones I saw.  
As far as I am concerned all of the updated for Outlook 20111 and his Mac are installed.

Is this just the way Mac "likes" the rest of the world or can we make sure that his emails are displayed properly?

I have the following script, and everything is working as intended.  My problem now is that when I update the variable value, I loose the ORIGINAL FONT of the field. Ex. when the user open the page the table has ?<h3> .... </h3> for he cells, and when I update the variable value, the Font or Format goes back to the normal Font NOT THE <H3>
I want to be able to update values keeping the same format or font.
This is the original cell from table
<tr><td width="180"><h3>Sub-total</h3> </td><td align="right" width="150"> <span id="total-price"><h3>15.98</h3> </span> </td></tr>

and when the listener updates the value, it works yes, but the font changes
