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.

VIDEO: THE CONCERTO CLOUD FOR HEALTHCARE

Modern healthcare requires a modern cloud. View this brief video to understand how the Concerto Cloud for Healthcare can help your organization.

The following is my code to measure the text width in a picture box and it works fine

Dim fontToMeasure As New Font("Microsoft Sans Serif", 14, FontStyle.Bold)
TextWidthIs = PictureBox1.CreateGraphics.MeasureString(TextLineIs, fontToMeasure).Width.ToString

The problem is that when I want to change the font from inside a loop e.g.

Dim fontToMeasure As New Font("Microsoft Sans Serif", 14, FontStyle.Bold)
For I=1  to 2
    if I=1 then (I want the font to be arial,16,normal)
    if I=1 then (I want the font to be Microsoft Sans ,14,bold)
   TextWidthIs = PictureBox1.CreateGraphics.MeasureString(TextLineIs, fontToMeasure).Width.ToString
next

Any Idea?

Many web pages get some crummy, unreadable, text.

Attached is PhpMyAdmin.

I have been told it's my default font that's broken.

Can anyone tell me how to change that?

Thanks

My old version of Mac Word (2011) allowed me to highlight the text, then click a sample font, which i used for heading styles.

When I create a Table of Contents, these styles were key.

How do I do this with my new version of Word?

Thanks

I am trying to set the height of the letters to 4 inches. When I set the height in the transform area it sets the text box height. When I try to change the font size it doesn't match up.

The only way I have found was to convert the text to outlines then resize the height. This doesn't work well as I would like to change the height before converting to outlines. To boot I also need vertical text and it seems to be even harder to set the height of each letter after creating the outline.

Can anyone help?

Hello,

Is there a VBA script which will selectively modify the formatting of text within a cell in Excel?

For example, suppose you've got a cell with the following text entry:

2017-06-18a_EE.PNG
The cell itself is formatted to Tahoma/Regular/10/Automatic but,
• the word "brown" has been modified to Tahoma/Bold/10/Brown,
• the word "jumps" has been modified to Tahoma/Regular/14/Automatic, and
• the number "1" has been modified to Tahoma/Superscript/10/Automatic.

With the VBA, is it possible to modify selected parts of the cell based on formatting? For example, suppose you want to change the word brown to green font but leave the remainder of the cell contents unchanged? Obviously that can be done manually, but is there a VBA code that will do it automatically?

Thanks

I am trying to add a barcode to a crystal report but i am having no luck so far.
I have tried using barcode39 and barcode128.
I have created a formula field, chosen basic syntax and pasted in the formula. I have then edited the data field to link to the field in my table, like so: "TABLE_NAME.FIELD_NAME"
I have been using this font 'Code39AzaleaRegular1' when using the formula for barcode39.

I own CorelDraw 2017. I paid full price for it. It annoys me greatly that every time I open it I see Corel's ads wanting to sell me fonts, art or something. I have NO interest in anything they have to sell. I simply want to utilize my purchase. Is there a setting or method to get rid of their ads? Windows 10, 64 bit.

We've recently published a new corporate PowerPoint template.  Our user base is mixed 2010, 2013, and 2016.  Our designers in their wisdom chose two Google fonts (which most people outside our company do not have installed) as the main header and body fonts. So we are forced by default to use PowerPoint's embed fonts feature to ensure that our clients will see the presentation as intended without unwanted font substitution.  

This works fine in most cases where we can tightly control the source slides.  Users inevitably cut and paste in old slides that bring with them other fonts, but we teach them how to Replace Fonts to get rid of those.  But the Replace function doesn't always work, and PowerPoint will continue to display "phantom fonts" that are not actually used anywhere in the presentation.  See the image below.
Replace Fonts feature
It's well documented that PowerPoint has some flaws when dealing with fonts, but we really need to fix this.

I wrote a VBA macro that lists out all the fonts in the Presentation.fonts collection, then goes through every shape on every slide and layout and spits out the font used.  The printout below is from the same presentation as above.  VBA can only find five of the fonts, and every other font in the listout is either Playfair or Roboto (the 2 Google fonts).  Where are the others??

One last piece of the puzzle.  I know for certain that the phantom fonts ARE in the file, because if I save the …

Im trying to make my Master page a little more presentable. I have an app that I built and we have named it EAST(its an acronym for Expense Account Submission Tracking). I want to display the E, A, S and T in caps(id like it in some type of block font in gray, and the small letters in black, but I will figure that part out).

Hi All

I need to install 2 fonts on a server without the requirement to reboot.

Usually we place a copy of the font here C:\Fonts and then right-click and choose to Install.  This installs the font to C:\Windows\Fonts and once rebooted the font works.

However, I want to install the font to C:\Windows\Fonts without having to reboot.  Would I do this by installing on a different PC and then copy and paste the installed copy from C:\Windows\Fonts on the source to C:\Windows\Fonts on the destination server?

I have a WordPress site that has multiple plugins which have different fonts specified.
Is there a way to override the whole website and have the same font family everywhere.

I have tried below which seems to work, but will this override all font families even if a plugin uses the "important" keyword?
And should the code be placed in header or footer, does this make a difference?

Thanks in advance.

html *{
   font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif !important;

The Creator Update for Windows 10 just installed on my computer. It altered my desktop settings. The font on the icons is different, smaller, and regular rather than bold.

It seems the easy-to-access panels for these adjustments within Settings are gone.

I am looking for suggestions on how to edit these settings, either in the registry or with an app that tweaks these settings.

Thanks,

I live in Thailand and am developing a small billing application using MS Access 2010. The administrators of the system may be Thai or English speakers and I would like each form to be displayed to them in their preferred language. Effectively I wish to be able to toggle between the 2 languages.

BTW, I am an access novice.

My problem is that I am unable to get any form to correctly render the text string that I have coded in Thai.

For instance, if I have a button called toggle, I want to be able to switch to Thai via the following statement:-

Me.toggle.Caption = "ฤฆฎฑ"

This is not a valid Thai word BTW, just a random series of characters.

Anyway, despite the control having a unicode font that is supposed to support Thai script, it never renders properly, in fact no Thai characters are ever displayed.

I would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction as this seem to me to be a fairly modest programming aspiration to have!

Many thanks

Regards
Mike

Hi!

Need some design direction.  It seems that once an site is well-designed for a phone, then there is no way to effectively put ads around the content.  Any sites that Experts think accomplish both: displays content in a clean / well-executed RWD design on a phone while simultaneously letting ads show.  

Suggestions needed. :))

Thanks,

Do I have to install fonts for every user on Windows 7?  or just C\Windows\Fonts

Hi all.  
I am a technician for a school district, and we have recently run into this problem after an update to Windows 10 Creators update 1703 (windows enterprise).  Many fonts that were running in both office 2013 and Office Professional Plus 2016 are now not displaying, and throwing the error "There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font." when you try to select them.  I have searched through everything i have been able to find related to this.  

I have tried the following:
changing the normal.dot file to .old and re-creating it
recreating the VBA folder
applied all of the office updates to the system (as of latest ones on may 2 2017)
deleting the ~fontcache~ files and remaking them
repairing office
removing office x86 and installing x64
starting windows in 'normal' mode
copying the 240 items in C:\Windows\Fonts from an un-updated machine into an updated machine, which triggered the font install process, however when finished the updated machine still only had 86 items in it (a net gain of 3 from before i started that)

It is widespread for us and happening on any machine that pulled the Creators update (100+ machines).  If you select fonts like Century Gothic or Lucida Sans, the font does not change, and they throw the error.  Others like Broadway and Brush Script (examples) do not give an error, but nothing changes when you select them.

Another thing that happens is if you attempt to print a document that has one …

I had this question after viewing PowerPoint not providing access to all installed fonts within a family.

I created a PowerPoint document on Mac PowerPoint 2011 using the Titillium family. When I opened the document on a PC running PowerPoint 2012, I discovered that Titillium WebRegular (Mac) is not compatible with Titillium Web (PC). I'm trying to clean up the PowerPoint on the PC and embed the fonts. But even though I've changed all the text boxes and template text to PC fonts, the document still says that Titllium WebRegular cannot be embedded. I can't use Replace Fonts because I get the message about single byte vs double byte.

Is there another way to find all the fonts or do I have to start from scratch?

Also can DansDadUK please provide the link to the Titllium X Web family he created?


Thank you!

I'm having trouble loading self-hosted fonts. I set everything up correctly in my CSS file but for some reason, the correct font is not showing. Instead it's displaying another type of Serif font and the weird thing is, I purposely didn't list any fallback fonts.  The font I am trying to load is "DomainText" and should be loaded for the "Welcome" title. Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong?

Hello, I'm trying to reproduce the text you see in the uploaded image.

This is the text I'd like to reproduce as closely as possible.
I can't find a font similar to this one and most of all I don't know how to create that sort of indent effect on the right of each letter.

The tools I have access to are Photoshop and Illustrator.

I hope somebody can help me.

Thanks.
