Printing font samples
I'm looking for some advice on printing font samples. I have a list of
things I'd like, but I can't seem to find an application that will give
me what I need. I hope someone out there can provide some guidance.
#0 - Must run under Windows.
#1 - Program must be able to print samples of fonts not installed.
#2 - For each font, I must be able to print the full character set,
font name and font location. Text block is a plus. I don't mind if
there is more than one font on a page as long as the full character set
is visible. I don't like it when I can't vie...printing font sample -- rdfont01v2
At my last employer I used an IBM utility named rdfont01v2 to print out
a whole set of font samples.
I don't remember if this utility was on a CD, for instance the AFP Font
Collection (5648-B45), or if I downloaded it.
I do remember following some paper documentation on installing and using
Now however, I can't seem to find out anything about this utility or an
alternative method of printing font samples.
Does anyone know anything about rdfont01v2?

I've seen this question asked before, but haven't been able to find an
answer, and will be grateful for any help. Is there a way to print out a set
of pages with samples of all the fonts currently available in Ghostscript
under Windows? I'm using AFPL Ghostscript 8.50 under Win98SE and Windows XP,
and I have a copy of the old allfont.ps file by Wayne Neely, which works
perfectly with a real PostScript printer.
I've tried using this command line while in the directory with allfont.ps:

I am relatively new to Java, and need to create an applet that will
print a document with a specific font-type and font-size.
I succeeded in printing a document, but I don't know how to correctly
specify the font-type and font-size. I searched on the Internet, but
there are many different ways explained and they all seem a bit
cumbersome to me (last time I did printing was with the Visual Basic
Printer object, which is really straightforward).
The font-type and font-size would be valid for the whole document, I
do not need to change them along the way.

I am making a brochure for a client, and I am making at actual size so
that it is 'copy ready'.
The main issue I have is the font: the maximum sized fonts I use in
photoshop is way too small for a 4 inch x 9 inch brochure. I used the
little window in photoshop (I am using CS) where the font size can be
increased by taking the font from 100% to 200%.
The problem is that in the "proof" for the brochure, the fonts are
just slightly pixelated.
Is there a way to increase font size without gaining that
"MW" <firstname.lastname@example.org...Fonts and Printing
I am developing a Java application which is to run both on Windoze and
Linux PCs. I have designed a report [using JasperReports] specifying the
fonts for the report fields ("Times New Roman" and "Arial").
The print-out looks fine on the Windows machine where the reports were
originally designed. However, on the Debian Linux PC the fonts aren't
found although they are installed.
a) Where and how are the fonts picked up from?
b) Can the fonts be deployed with the application?

I was looking at the printing sample that comes with wx widgets. I
noticed that after I changed everything to landscape in the page setup.
The print preview still shows up in portrait. My code is very similar
to this sample. How can I get the page setup stuff working.
This is using 2.6 with gtk and linux.

I set up a printer for Host Print Transform in Raster Mode (see also my
last posting) for printing SBCS and DBCS characters.
For testing I create a spoolfile with WRKQRY command so that I have some
SBCS and some DBCS characters.
Setting sysvalue QIGCCDEFNT and QIGCFNTSIZ works for DBCS characters but
how can I change font/font-size for the normal SBCS characters?
Changing font/font-size in printerfile or device-description does not
have any effect. The font SBCS characters are printed looks like 10 cpi

I am trying to use a True Type font in a wxWindows

the technologies invloved, linux, wxWidgets, and
KDrive (a slimmed down XFree86 build).
My current application uses the KDrive/TinyX Xvesa
Xserver built with XFree86 4.2.0 code. I upgraded to
XFree86 4.5.0 because that version of KDrive/TinyX
supports client-side scalable fonts. The bitmapped

I have X3 installed on two computers at work. I created a drawing
using the font "Lithograph". On both computers, the font appears
correct. When I print, one prints correctly, while the other prints
the same font but much bolder. I have checked and rechecked all the
print settings, and they are identical. My main concern is that I run
a laser engraver with the "defective" computer, and right now the
laser is engraving the bold font! The customer, however, approved the
original font. Any thoughts on what could be causing this?

I created a PDF using pdflatex from TeX Live 2007 under Ubuntu Hardy.
This displays correctly in xpdf and Acrobat Reader, and prints correctly
on my HPLJ5MP, and also prints and displays correctly on several other

When I copy the file (via USB stick) to my Mac and open it in Preview,
it displays correctly, but when I print it (to a Lexmark X75) the fonts

Hey people. I'm using Mathematica 8.
I'm having a problem while printing a document in my own stylesheet
that I could reduce to the following:
Not all styles have the same inch versus font-size relationship. And I

For some reason, some option I must have mistouched, my stylesheet's

I have a need to print very large font numbers on a card stock size of
5.5" x 8.5" in Access 97. The character count will not exceed 3
numbers across. So I'm assuming that a 3.5" to 4" height should work.
Of course, 72pt fonts fall considerably short of this size.
Can I use either Labels or Reports to do this? Any special setup
requirements? I don't necessarily need to rotate the text. Can basic
fonts be resized? I remember seeing something about
DataSheetFontHeight and a 127pt maximum in Access. Is this an option
to pursue? But 127pt would still be short of the he...Font print peculiarity

this is a stupid beginners question.
When I prinf from Maple, the font is much too big. If I select a smaller
font, then it is too small on the screen.
Can I set the printer font size independently of the screen font size?

I can of oourse drag and drop the file onto a printer object, and select

I don't mind setting the font permanently, in the printer object.
So, my question is:
