Well postscript fonts are vector outline fonts, so they contain instructions about the building of their outlines and curves and such. Hence two files are required to use a postscript font under Windows.

As to how to install these fonts, well

  1. Click Start | Settings | Control Panel.
  2. Double-click on the Fonts folder.
  3. Choose File | Install New Font.
  4. In the Folders menu, navigate to the folder containing the fonts that you wish to install. A list of available fonts will appear in the List of Fonts window.
  5. Click on the font you wish to install or use the "Select All" button to install all fonts in the List of Fonts.
  6. Click on OK.
Please keep in mind:
  1. If you are installing fonts from a CD be sure the 'Add without copying files' box is NOT checked; unless the fonts are on a located somewhere (such as a network) which you will have access to at all times.
  2. Postscript fonts have two files: PFB (printer font binary has outlines that control how the font looks) and PFM (printer font metrics has information about font spacing). Be sure you have both font files.
  3. If you currently have or previously had Adobe Type Manager Deluxe 4.0, 4.1, or 4.1.1 installed you may need the Adobe Deluxe Updater in order to properly use your Postscript fonts under Windows XP. Get it from Adobe.
Hope this helped. Let me know and if yes please rate me:)

Font won't unbold


Is this for a TTF True Type Font or some other font format?

Assuming you're running Windows, it all depends on which operating system you're running. Typically PCs use True Type Fonts (TTF files), which are installed and stored in the Fonts folder, which is a sub-folder of the Windows folder.

Some True Type Fonts are only available in Bold, Italic, Normal and Bold Italic. Some are also available in more or less variations. Some fonts are only available in Bold, some only in Italic, etc.

You may need to check if you have the Normal font installed, and it may be the font selected is only installed in the bold version. Another possibility is your Normal font file might be damaged or corrupted to where it's no longer recognized by your system.

You can check out the Fonts folder to see if the typeface you're trying to use is installed properly in the Normal style.

If not, select another font and see if that works for you. This would be a good indication that it's simply a matter of the Normal font variation not being installed properly.

Hope this helps!

If this isn't the word Gujarati: ગુજરાતી, in Gujarati then your computer probably doesn't have a Gujarati Unicode font installed and you will have problems reading the Gujarati section of this site.
Following are instructions for getting Gujarati Unicode to display properly on various computer operating systems.
Microsoft Windows Microsoft Office 2000 and Microsoft Office XP If you have a copy of Microsoft Office 2000 or Microsoft Office XP, or Microsoft Publisher 2002, and Gujarati is not displaying properly then you should install the Arial Unicode MS font which is distributed by Microsoft with these products.
If you are unsure how to install Arial Unicode MS from CD then please consult the Microsoft Help and Support website - try searching for "Arial Unicode MS".
Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 are not distributed with Arial Unicode MS so you will need to install an alternative Gujarati font.
You can download the following free, open source Gujarati fonts from the Indictrans Project:
Padmaa Medium, Padmaa Bold
Once you have downloaded the font file you can install using the font utility in the Control Panel, alternatively just copy the .ttf files into your \windows\fonts\ directory. There are more detailed instructions on our installing fonts page.

Enlarge font on Quicken documents


Dear Sir

I am assuming that you are using Windows XP or VISTA at the moment. Go to display settings >> from there you have to change the DPI on the screen. This will change the overall font size throughout windows as it seems that this problem is because you have very high resolution.
