[NTB] Re: How to Add Fixed-Width Fonts
- Thank you. I will definitely be more methodical next time and of
course will be more patient about seeing my "favorite fonts" when I do
a reinstall. Just goes to show, I hope, how enthusiastic I am about
NoteTab Pro that I installed it before Word!
I thought "A" fonts were Adobe fonts because I know Adobe installs
some with the "A" icon, but now I'm not sure. I had not installed
Adobe, so I was puzzled. I eventually realized they had an ".fon"
extension. So I found descriptions of ".fon" being bitmap or raster
fonts--which Adobe would need because it's readable across OS
platforms (and ".ttf" is an extension for Windows fonts.) Now I don't
know if I'm looking at the chicken or the egg. :)
Among websites with the defining references on ".fon":
