Linotype Font Explorer X, Windows XP & System Fonts
I grabbed the above as a replacement for Suitcase (mine's a bit old
and creaky) and as ever with Beta software did a backup of critical
data and created a system restore point prior to installation.
It has however, utterly broken the system fonts - some applications
(notably Suitcase - I think it knew what I was up to) and now displays
a bold 10pt face which can make some applications unusable. It
initially trashed Windows (all fonts vanished, Start Bar, icons, the
lot) but a reboot to "last known working configuration" restored these
to some weird anti-aliased condense...MAC Fonts/Windows Fonts
Recently, I was using a Apple MAC and opened a .doc file. I printed
the file out and noticed that the font was really "cool," the a was
more like an a we write with a c and a line (you know, kinda like we
write and NOT the way courier new does). I am trying to figure out:
First, does anyone have any idea what font it was? Second, what
program do you think I probably used? I think it looks like a TXT file
but it is a doc. What is it, just looks really good. Help me our here,

Why does AutoCAD get fonts from Windows\Fonts or WinNT\Fonts when it
isn't in my support path? I am using AutoCAD 2006 Land Desktop and in

Thanks for your help,
The Windows/Fonts directory is a standard windows thing. You'll find
font information in the windows registry, in:

Hello dear newsgroup readers,
When i look into the Microsoft Word font chooser, I see all fonts
rendered with the glyphs they contain, except "Windings", "MS Outlook"
and some others.
My own barcode font now is rendered with its name shown in the symbols
of my font which makes really hard to distinguish from other barcode
fonts in the drop down list.
How do i make windows to show my font name without using the glyphs from

A windows application installed in wine fails to find it's specific font:
Application related is the capella-reader (free reader/player for

I hope the following isn't an faq (at least, it doesn't seem to be in
the UK TUG FAQ). Basically, my question comes up because I'm involved
in a project that requires the use of "Times New Roman" (hereafter,
TNR) as the main text font and "Helvetica" as the sans-serif font. I
use both TexLive 2010 and MikTeX 2.9 on PCs and TexLive/MacTeX 2010 on
an iMac running Snow Leopard 10.6.5.
As is well known, Helvetica and TNR differ considerably in their x-
heights (for a given font size of, say, 10pt or 12pt). In various
packages. (The letters u,...Windows\Fonts folder bulging with OpenType fonts

I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.

I'm using XeTex in order to be able to use installed fonts without
conversion. However, microtype doesn't work with XeTeX. Having just
completed Week 2 of working with *TeX could someone explain step-by-
step how fonts might be "converted" for use so that I could go without
XeTeX so that I could use Microtype?
