From: ute Date: Thu, 20 Jan 2000 18:12:25 GMTI created a ttf only on the basis of bitmaps. I have 256 bitmaps which I am trying to access through the GDI function TextOut().
The problem is that although I am asking to print all code points from 0-0xff, the output is not as expected. The first 0-0x7f code points are printed in their proper raster, then between code points 0x80 - 0xa0 most of those rasters (but not all) are replaced by the raster which is saved as code point 0xff, then from 0xao - 0xff the code points are printed again with their correct raster.
What could be the problem?
Thanks for an answer

From: Louise Date: Wed, 26 Jan 2000 20:23:57 GMTHi, I have a missing font in the computer at work, making it totally unable for me to be able to use our forms program. I am frustrated because I am unable to figure out how to get a font into the computer, and I can't identify the exact font/s that are/is missing. The only thing I know is that they are True Type fonts. Can you help me?------Thanks Louise
From: Louise Date: Wed, 26 Jan 2000 20:44:40 GMTHi again, I sent a post, but after reading through some of the posts on this page, realize my post was scanty in explaining my problem. We are a very small Real Estate company. One of the person's kids who is here played in the computer and deleted some of the fonts. Nothing happened until we downloaded our ZIPPED FORMS PROGRAM FROM our State Real Estate Board. I showed them what kind of hyroglifics, (looks like a bunch of shapes, and not letters at all) has moved in and our forms are not usable. They explained that we had missing fonts, and need to install the missing fonts. However, I am pretty computer illeterate, and I have no idea of how to find the fonts, or how install them. We use True Type, is all I know.
I do not know how to fix this problem. Can you help me? you can e-mail me to ask me questions. Please any help you can give me will be very appreciated. We are unable to use our program this way. I hope my "explaining" this has helped. Louise

From: Kate Date: Thu, 27 Jan 2000 18:55:10 GMTPrinting from MS Publisher using TT font Moderne Regular will only print as all bold - possibly because this font has four drivers operating its four versions and Publisher can only see one of thesm. I can it to print correctly from other applications. Also seems to be more of a problem printing to our color printer - a qms magicolor 2 - I have tried everything to get it to print wysiwyg - even to printing TT fonts as bitmaps to no avail on Publisher. Is there a version of Moderne that is more recent than Altsys Fontographer 3.5 from 1993?
From: Maurice Bauhahn Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2000 06:13:22 GMTAre you aware of any utility which can convert MetaFont formulae to TrueType outlines?
I like the sparse theory of a pen-nib and axis for designing fonts. However I urgently need to create some new TrueType fonts and am not happy with Fontographer.
Thank you for your help,

For using a TTF font in your page you must be familiar with the code page of font then write your text in that code page then use font tag before and after the text that you like to show by that font . For example:

From: MHSS Date: Fri, 4 Feb 2000 15:37:12 GMTI am trying to get the outline curves of the arabic glyphs under Win95 using the Glyph indexes given by GetCharacterPlacement. A simple approach should be, to open a path, draw the desired Glyph, close and retrieve the Paths curves. Unfortunately, the ExtTextOut function used with ETO_GLYPH_INDEX does not do anything when drawn into a path (even though it should, since exactly the same WORKS under Windows NT 4.0), it works only directly into a HDC (display or bitmap). The same function used WITHOUT ETO_GLYPH_INDEX can render into a path (seems to be a Win95 bug)...
My question is: Is there another way to retrieve the characters outlines ? (It seems, that GetGlyphOutline accepts only Latin font coding...).additionaly please send an example using geycharacterplacement for arabic language in delphi enviorment.
