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.

Looking for easier-to-read fonts for my Note 8.  The fonts on the Samsung Store are $1.90 for me in the US.  Are there other ways to get fonts for my phone for less?

One of my employees has her fonts spontaneously change to Wingdings all over Filemaker.  This happens to her about 3x per week.  I've uninstalled and reinstalled Filemaker, which helped for a while, but in about 2 weeks, she started having the same problem.  Ran a malware and nothing came up.

The rest of us have only experienced it about twice in a year and rebooting solves the problem.  Ever seen this?  Any suggestions?

Hi,

Can anyone give me a quick overview on how I can add Google Ads in WP, but also in general?

I know there a lot of plug ins, but can I filter out certain types of ads, like X-rated, and how do I get paid? Is it like monthly through PayPal?

Finally, can I add the Ads to a freshly-built site with no content.  I know the client will fill it up quickly. The website will be mostly in Macedonian using what I think its Unicode(?) characters (found under Language Settings --> Keyboards in most OSs), but some older content is using custom fonts that overwrite the Latin characters.

I'm having a problem when i merge two PDF documents.  The process that i run through is to open the first larger document and then from within Acrobat i run through the INSERT routine.  Once the insert is complete random words and characters are changed to garbage.  It looks similar to the wingdings font.  Some words are completely replaced while other words are only partially replaced with bad characters.  All of these words are written in English

I'm using a Windows 10 computer with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Version 2015.006.30508

Is there a way to merge documents without the words/fonts becoming illegible?

I am struggling to replace my QuaySansBook/BookSC (Type 1 Font file QSBK._PFM) after being forced by Microsoft to upgrade my computer to Windows 10 (with Office 2010).

ALL my work (for the last 20 years) is in this font - but it is not recognised on this new system. I was advised to buy a new QuaySans - but even when I the new font up as the Default Font in 'normal' on my documents it is not changing the normal font on the page back to QuaySans. I end up with a MESS. The documents are showing in Times - and my careful layout is completely lost.

I have changed the Normal template to accommodate the new font but it does not work

"To import a list of contacts from a .csv file click the import icon, browse to a .csv file on your computer and click open."

No such icon...

Another question about drop cap.  I have written my novel and now I copied and pasted it into an Amazon KDP word template for 5.5 X 8.5 size.  This worked well but I cannot get drop cap to work.  No matter how I format the first letter of a chapter, the drop cap ends up aboe the chapter paragraph, half the letter that is drop capped cut off, or sometimes when I increase the font, below the sentence.  It is very odd. Not sure what the template (or may it is the indent that is set) is doing to the drop case working properly.

I am having problems with fonts which work with Windows 7 but do not work with Windows 10. The main problem seems to be that the font in question is called Quay Sans - regular, italics, medium and medium italic - shows up in Windows 10 as an Arial font. In Windows 7 the fonts work perfectly.
Any help would be welcomed.

I'm looking to setup Organization wide signatures, I have exchange online, office 365/2016 fat client running windows 10 clients.

From this article:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/admin/setup/create-signatures-and-disclaimers?view=o365-worldwide

Is there a way to target only certain departments within my organization?  

Is picking a custom font and option with Signatures?

Thanks in advance

Aren't out of the box Styles in Word (2016) like

Heading 1
Heading 2
Heading 3

auto-updating in terms of font size?  They show themselves to be "Based on Normal"  But, I updated the Normal text size to 18.  Then, started using Heading 1 - it was just 16.  And, Heading 2 just 13.

I even went further and selected both of these with a check box "Auto Updating".

How can I get my Headings 1 ~ x default styles to update themselves in terms of Font Size in Word?

Thanks!

Hello Everybody.

I'd like to know how to tag and style with css and classes etc that includes strike through text, color changes and font size change -- via css stylesheet for an html page.

Here's the graphic that my client sent me -- and now I need to use css to style it via a style sheet, compatible with modern browsers.  See how the bundle price is larger than the other font sizes.  
I assume this all needs to be put into an overall div with perhaps sub divs within it.

Looking foward to your solution-- I can fine-tune the sizes once I get your css framework.

Thanks

Need to do this in regular text (not a graphic) using css in a style sheet

In Outlook, the Preview Pane fonts for Tasks cannot be altered.

From Microsoft's own help pages:

Unfortunately there is no solution as of yet.

And, on the one Macro they unenthusiastically send folks to we read, from the developer:

...unfortunately Outlook doesn't allow direct interaction with the reading pane for automated zooming.

and

People have been complaining about this on MS forums for years but MS has failed to implement this easy fix.

The text pane itself looks like it is uniquely rendered each time.  But, there has to be some kind of default value, like, 1.0?

The Subject
Due Date
Status
Owner

at the top of each one - surely these are all generated at startup.

Got to be a way.

How do you see it?

Fingers crossed and with admiration for the collective skills,

I really like the look of these sections: https://mdbootstrap.com/docs/jquery/sections/magazine/  but when I add it to my page, and add their css, it destroys the basic look of my page, making the fonts much smaller.

Can I sort of section off the magazine part and have it use different css files?

I am using an iMac and apple mail.  The font size is extremely small...12.
I went into mail preferences and selected fronts and it made it possible
to change to size 18.
However, it does not retain that as a default?
How can I set the default size and type in Apple Mail?
thanks,

MS Word gives us a portrait view. Any way to get a landscape view? We have lyrics to a song and we want them at the bottom of a video. We type the first two lines and get them on one page at a nice size font of 100. But when used as an overlay on the video it covers too much of the video. If we could landscape them along the bottom then the 11 words would be on two lines horizontal instead of five lines vertical. We're using Word and Paint because those are the programs that can get us the two lines of text on a document, copy pasted to paint and saved as a jpg image and opened as an image to the video creator program. And basically the only programs that we have used for such things. Thanks.

Hi Experts,

I have set a range as an array in Excel VBA and I would like to know the font color of an array element.

How do I accomplish this? here is the code I am trying to use:

Thanks Experts!


Dim v() As Variant

Dim rng As Range

Sheets("COA").Select

'Declare array
v = Range("D5:G3840")

Sheets("SimEx BS").Select

'Get the lastrow
lastrow = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row

For i = 2 To lastrow
    If (Cells(i, "A").Value = (v(1, 1))) Then
        If (v(1,1).Font.Color = vbBlack) Then <- Object required
            MsgBox "black"
        End If
    End If
Next i
