Re: [NTB] Fonts
- Hi Donna,
If you downloaded a file from MS with the Georgia font in it or a
package so to speak with a few files in it, you should just hav3e
to double click on the file and it should ask if you want to
install the fonts. (For some reason "core fonts" is coming to
mind, but do not worry about it if it does not ring a bell.)
Fonts do not go in NoteTab's folder structure. NoteTab just
lists all the fonts that Pro or Std/Light uses found in the
Windows Fonts folder.
The following is some help and off topic about how to read drive
paths. I hope I made it simple enough and clear enough for you.
If you need to reply to it, please post on the NoteTab Off-Topic
List. The sign-up eMail address is in my sigline.
When you see a disk path like C:\WINDOWS\FONTS\ (note the letter
in front and the backslashes) it is sort of like an address. That
is, it is a specific location on your hard drive. My guess is
you only have an A:\, C:\, and probably a D:\ drive.
A:\ is your floppy drive.
C:\ is your main drive with your programs and files for Windows
to be run.
D:\ is your CD drive that you insert CD-ROMs into. The CD-ROM
drive will increase in the alphabet if you section off your C:\
drive into smaller sections so to speak known as partitions.
(They can be compared to the partitions used in large offices to
make sections/dividers for certain employees.)
The text you see after the drive designation is called a
directory (or folder) in most cases, but the text may be a file
in what is called the root directory, having no directories. For
You read the disk path front left to right. Think of it as a
file system or an outline. Your C:\ drive has a lot of
directories on it. They are listed in alphabetical order. Each
directory can have several sub-directories.
So, given the drive path, "C:\WINDOWS\FONTS\," you go into
Windows Explorer or My Computer and locate your C:\ drive. Click
on it and depending on your configuration you will see a number
of folders listed, possibly on the right side, a new window might
pop up, or you will see a bunch of folders and a few files after
them. You should see a folder called Windows. Click on it
(noting that it is the first folder in the path you are going
to). When the Windows folder opens, look for the Fonts folder.
That is where your fonts reside. If I remember correctly Win95
also had a few fonts in the Windows folder.

I'm not Jody, but ... you can only use fixed-width fonts in Pro.
Georgia is a proportional width font, so it will not be available under
choices in Document|Font.
I use Andale Mono as my font for Pro.
NTLight CAN use proportional fonts - I know, it sounds like a

The Georgia font that I know is plainly not a "true fixed width font".
So you are probably asking the impossible.
The current version of NOTETAB PRO ONLY WORKS WITH FIXED WIDTH FONTS.
If you have the font installed in Windows and it is fixed width then
it will show up as available to NOTETAB PRO.
- Rick, Your answer said what I needed to know. Georgia font works best on my
online site but I was never told it was not fixed, just that it workd better
than all the others that I tried from Word Perfect's selection. Thanks. DEB

in NoteTab Pro except the document edit window. Pro will also
print in variable width fonts. I suggest that you check to see
if the Georgia font is a standard issue with Windows. If not,
and you use it on your web pages, it may be best to reconsider
unless you just want to do it for yourself and the people that
happen to have it installed on their computer. Browsers use the
fonts from the visitors computer to view the web page. If the
font is not installed, then the page will be displayed in
whatever the default font is. In other words, your page that you
view may look different or perhaps a bit messed up if you do not
use a standard font. I took these out of NoteTab's HTML | Font
Clip. (Thanks Greg. ;)
