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 with specific font-type and font-size
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.

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?

You've enabled something about Central European input (perhaps a Polish
or Estonian keyboard). The CE fonts are the ones that have easy mappings
for the characters that appear in those orthographies and not in the
various western/Roman alphabets (English, French, etc.).

I thought with the upcoming of Unicode there's one and only one font for
"all" script systems? So what's the deal? I've noticed that the fonts
concerned are all of the type ".dfont" and they appear twice only in
programs that have a "traditional" font menue.

I'm trying to determine if you have to create a font for each version

Ie. Do I have to create seperate fonts for:

just create one for Courier New size 8 and it recognize it?
Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

This is because TTF fonts are installed in Windows and so AutoCAD can
use those that are installed in Windows. SHX fonts are the ones that
must be in a folder in the search path for AutoCAD to find them.

Hi, I would like to create some virtual font from a Type 1 font
that should behave exactly as the original one except for one
thing: the characters should be print according to a -1 1 scale.
[-1 0 0 1 0 0] makefont
does not what I want, since it reverses the printing direction.
For instance: (ABCDE) show
should print ABCDE in this very same order but each letter should
be horizontally mirrored. How can I do that?

When my RB app copies fonts to the Fonts Folder on the Mac the fonts
immediately become available to all applications. However when I do the same

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?

Give PFAEdit a try. It seems to have most (if not all) the function that
other software has.
