With the graphic capability of computers and printers today, there are many fonts to choose from when writing documents.

  • Important category that fonts can be divided into are:
    • Monospaced fonts: Monospaced fonts are fonts in which every character uses the same amount of horizontal space, like this sentence.
    • Proportionally spaced fonts: Proportionally spaced fonts (also called variable pitch fonts) use up only the amount of horizontal space that is required for the letter. Therefore, the letter W would take up more space than the letterI. Standard HTML text font, like this sentence (bad example for those unfortunate lynx users :-), is an example of this kind.
Using these kinds of fonts requires formatting to be done correctly. Aligning text should never be done by using spaces. Since character width varies with proportional fonts, assume that it will never line up correctly using spaces. It is possible that on the screen it looks perfect, but remember that the resolution a monitor provides is not even close to the quality that a laser printer can produce. Even if monospaced fonts are used, spaces should be avoided in the event that the font is changed to a proportional font later. Instead of using spaces, use tab stops, indentation markers, and other features to align text.
  • Fonts can also be divided into:
    • Scaleable: Scaleable fonts, such as the popular TrueType fonts, are rendered by applying a fancy mathematical algorithm to represent each character. This allows the fonts to be used at any point size with uniform quality. These fonts are actually printed as graphics and therefore can be printed on any printer that can support graphics.
    • Printer: Printer fonts are the default fonts that come already installed with the printer.
    • Soft: Other fonts can be used by downloading soft fonts.
If there is the possibility that fonts used in the document are not going to be available on another printer, techniques such as embedding or substituting can be used.

I have hp mini with intel atom processor.it works with operating system windows 7.but there r many problems in it while installing tally 9 ..after installing tally 9 i opened it but an error msg is given...


on any pc if you get error "insufficient height to allocate".. then just set the dpi of your pc/laptop to 100%, (you can adjust dpi from display settings) and try to use tally, this might solve ur problem.
if the above doesn't solve ur problem, then go to screen resolution setting and select 800 x 600 resolution. this might solve ur problem to most extent.
if still u are facing the prob then go to display setting of windows and reduce the font size of menu, message box, active title bar, non-active title bar and etc... reduce fonts of all..

I am running Microsoft Works 8. I am not running vista. I have XP Media Center Edition version 2002 SP2 Word processor will not open, nor will previously created documents. this seemed to have...


I have my doubts that the installation of OpenOffice was the problem.

Having said that i now need to say that if you opened any of the Works files with open office and then saved them, it saves in its own format unless you stipulate to save the file in the works format. You may already know this and i am telling grammy how to make cup cakles. it is just that I am an avid user of OO and works on my own PC and to date never had a problem with either being in the same environment.

Having it report about FONT cache sounds like a font was used in OO that is not recognised by Works so it throws a hiccup. Have you got a file you can share with someone local that was created with works on your PC that you can ask someone else to open and see if it throws a fit when asked to open it?

I have also visited OO.org to see if thyere are any known conflicts with MSWorks but there are non listed I can see.
