Deciding which Design Editor font type to use
Designer supports the use of the following Windows font types ;
- Postscript Type1 .PFB / .PFM fonts
- Windows True Type .TTF fonts
- Adobe Open Type (Postscript outline) .OTF fonts
When deciding which Design font type to use bear in mind the following ;
- Windows True Type fonts are natively available across All supported Windows OS versions in all supported font styles.
Note - These TTF fonts are regularly updated, which can lead to an increase in published font size across different Windows OS or within different update levels of the same Windows OS.
- PostScript Type1 and Adobe Open Type fonts sourced from a font vendor are under the users control and will remain constant unless explicitly updated by the user , ensuring a consistent published font size and content across Windows OS variants.
Type1 and Open Type font considerations
Important note - It is the users responsibility when sourcing third party PostScript Type1 or Adobe Open Type .OTF fonts to ;
- Install - ALL - individual Fonts for each Design Font style required such as Regular , Bold, Italic and Bold Italic.
- Ensure that all the required Font attributes are present and use a consistent Font name as required by the Font specification.
Note - Failure to do so will lead to Publish failures or incorrect Generate output.
Migrating from one Font type to another
If a Design user decides to replace one font family font type , such as a True Type font with another such as a Type1/Open Type equivalent, - All - font styles and point sizes for the specific font family must be replaced , within the Design Repository and on each Designer Client Windows environment.
A Designer Client user must update the existing Repository Design font types with the replacement font types for - All - point sizes and styles of the original font using the Designer Tasks / Import / Fonts / Windows font.
Note - Failure to replace all styles / point sizes for the specific font family can cause Publish failures or incorrect Generate output.
