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.

The image shows a word that we need for a church business card as well as a logo on the weekly bulletins. It's the word Celebration for English and Celebracion for the Hispanics.

Someone had the idea to put the T on top of the C and also change the T to a cross. So far the efforts have been in black fonts.

I suggested that most crosses from the days of Jesus were made of wood and thus the cross could be a brown color. They have played around with moving the cross (which is actually the T in celebration) to the left or right to somehow not distort the C.

In my opinion there will be enough other text on the card in Spanish and if the Spanish version of celebration is celebracion then any one viewing the card will know what celebration means. But I do not make the decisions.

So looking for more brain power on how to combine celebration and celebracion? Using colors, fonts, etc.

I'm designing the card and if we can get that word to the liking of the higher ups in the church then I will have to make the word be a photo so I can upload the photo (which will be nothing but the word) and drag that to the proper place on the card. The templates and editing do not offer a T on top of a C. Thanks.

We have successfully setup an Exchange 2016 server in an existing Exchange 2010 environment.  We have successfully migrated all public folders using the scripts.   Users migrated to Exchange 2016 have full access to those folders and everything seems to be as it should be.

The question is whether there is any way to pre-populate OWA 2016 with public folder favorites vs. manually right clicking and adding a specific public folder to a specific user's OWA.   The site uses public folders extensively and the new OWA makes finding the public folders much more obtuse than it was in OWA 2010 and earlier.

Thanks!

When I open Google Chrome sometimes it opens in a large fashion as seen in screen capture one then when I hit F5 refresh then it goes back to normal appearance at the font zoom that I have it set at which is 125%. It is updated. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it nothing worked. Any solution. It is very annoying . Most of the time it opens large then after refresh it is viewed as normal. Thank you.

I have this code:
<style>
	a:link { color: white; }
	a:hover { color: #8CC6EC; }
</style>	
<div class="row hidden-xs">
<div class="col-sm-4 col-xs-4 text-center">&nbsp;</div>
<div class="col-sm-1 col-xs-1 text-center" style="font-family: 'Montserrat', sans-serif; font-weight: bold; color:white;"><a href="main.php">Home</a></div>
<div class="col-sm-2 col-xs-2 text-center" style="font-family: 'Montserrat', sans-serif; font-weight: bold; color:white;"><a href="choose_proj_sel.php">Saved Items</a></div>
<div class="col-sm-2 col-xs-2 text-center" style="font-family: 'Montserrat', sans-serif; font-weight: bold; color:white;"><a href="http://www.lakos.com/About/contact-us" target="blank">Contact LAKOS</a></div>
<div class="col-sm-2 col-xs-2 text-center" style="font-family: 'Montserrat', sans-serif; font-weight: bold ;color:white;"><a href="profile.php" onClick="return prof_window();">Profile</a></div> 
<div class="col-sm-1 col-xs-1 text-left" style="font-family: 'Montserrat', sans-serif; font-weight: bold; color:white;"><a href="logout.php">Logout</a></div>
</div>

Open in new window


This worked perfectly, until I added the Montserrat font, with this in the head scetion

 <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Montserrat" rel="stylesheet">

Now ALL the links except Profile are in the hover color, profile is white.

That's crazy.

What is wrong?

I have downloaded a https://colorlib.com/wp/template/personify/.

I want to change the Red hyperlinks (showing in /css/bootstrap.css) as (assumingely) "--primary:#F73859;"

I have changed every instance of Red color that I can find in as much of the CSS as I could, yet whenever I refresh locally it's still showing the links as red.

There also is a folder containing scss files and I have not yet worked with those type of files yet.

How can I change the font and hover links for this page? There seems to be something overriding the changes I'm making.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello. I am using Illustrator CS3 on a Windows 10 system. I created an Illustrator file for a window decal a year or so ago, but we weren't ready yet to actually use the decal. I opened the Illustrator file today and got the dreaded "missing font" message. The font in question is Rochester-Regular, an OTF file. I looked in my system font file and only Adobe fonts were listed. (What happened to all my other files?!?! Did they disappear in a Windows upgrade?)

I went out on the internet, found the font file, and downloaded and installed it in the Windows font file and it shows up in the directory there.

Still does not show up in Illustrator. I tried using Find File in Illustrator to search the System fonts and the font was not found. I downloaded the font from a different website with the same result. I rebooted, still no luck.

In my research on the internet, one solution was to install the file in the directory Windows\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts. I did not have this subfolder, so I created it and copies the font into the new folder. This didn't work either.

If I open the file in Photoshop and Adobe Bridge, it displays correctly. The problem is that I need to send the AI file to a service provider for tweaking and printing.

How can I get this font to display in Illustrator?

Thanks.

We need to have message from VBA to have increased font so that those who have poor sight can read as well, see below:

MsgBox "Please type in your currency rate here", vbOKOnly, "Data required here"
The above extract is what I’m talking about

Should I purchase Helvetica?
I've been in a debate with a friend about Arial versus Helvetica. Or paid fonts in general.
Can I get some proof I can actually see that Helvetica -- or something else-- is better than the built-in Arial.  Or Arial narrow, etc.

Hello Experts - I'm trying to find a compromise that would allow one of my marketing staff to install fonts without having full administrative access to her machine.  Is there a way to allow this but still prevent all of the other admin access?

I have an issue with Windows 10 that is driving me mental.. For  whatever reason the fonts folder constantly blocks installations that require font installations.. Example Auto Desk Viewer hangs up on "Error Writing to file: C:\Windows\Fonts\arial.tff Verify that you have access to that directory" but it is also happening when I try to install Desi lite which is a label making program "Error Writing to file: C:\Windows\Fonts\DesiPictograms.tff Verify that you have access to that directory"

All of my users have local admin rights, I have tried installing using the domain admin account and the local admin account with same issue. When I originally upgraded to Office 16 word was also complaining about access denied when I would select a font..

When logged on as admin I tried to access the fonts folder permissions and I get "access denied"

Any ideas?

I have this issue where I am sending an HTML email to an Outlook 2013 user. The email looks fine when I look at its preview in the HTML editor as well as when viewing it using a secondary HTML editor. It looks fine when I look at it in a browser based email client (hotmail). But when the email is received by a user using Outlook, the message's font size changes in what appears to be random parts of the mail. Does anyone know what would cause that? UPDATE: I should also mention when I open the Outlook version of the email in the web browser by clicking View In Browser on that email, it opens in a web page showing as it should.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I have recently purchased a vintage Radio Shack Duofone 16 and wish to create ID inserts for it.  That said, could someone help get me started with some ideas for accomplishing this goal?  I also would like to create the ID inserts using a font which matches as closely as possible to a typewriter font.   A picture of this phone along with corresponding ID inserts next to each of the one touch dialing buttons is provided.

I have an application written in Access 10.  It is installed in over 100 sites.  Just recently some users have been getting the attached error message after years of running the program without a problem.  It seems to be associated with the Access 10 Run Time.  If I repeatedly click on Ignore, Cancel, or Retry it tries to install it and fails, and rolls the update back.  If I do this 4 or 5 times and then start the application, it runs.

Any clues?

Thanks in advance.

The magnification on my Outlook email responses became shrunk from a mouse wheel action when replying to an email, and I can't figure out how to reset it.

I was trying to use my mouse to scroll down and somehow it shrunk the display/magnification/font size of that screen, and now all new emails, or replys have this reduced magnification.

Now when I create a new email, or reply to one, everything is very small.   The actual font settings are still OK, and when I receive the email I send to myself it appears normal in the preview, but new messages and responses now have what appears like an 8pt or 7pt font, but it's just the display magnification or something like that.

HELP!

Is this an HTML vs. Plain Text issue?

In MS Outlook, client has to go to File>Options>Mail>Stationary and Fonts and change/reset the settings often.

Is there a way to lock the font settings?
