Noobie Q

Discussion in 'Font Forum:' started by theorganisedmess, Oct 3, 2009.

  1. So, whats the difference between Mac True Type or
    Windows True Type, when they can both be used on
    Macs? Is it just that they are zipped or stuffed?

    Also,
    What actually is Sans-Serif,
    im aware that Sans is different from Serif,
    and that they define fonts in a way but i dont know what way?

    Wait till Berry catches up with that serif/sans serif question.


    ...look out.

    ....fair question though if you don't know.
     

  10. Yeah hehe i know, but i AM a student ^^
    Everyone has to start somewhere, and if you happen to be a member of a forum
    full of designers, then all the more reason to learn fast enough to end up better than
    the rest of the forumites:p
     
  11. HELP!

    I went font-shopping, and one of them has taken over my computer's default font.
    im running a leapord based Mac - any ideas on how to restore my usual default to something readable like calibri?

    disable the font that is doing that. either that or delete it.

    and then re-install it.

    it will be, just take some time to go through and do it.

    only happened once to me, but it's fixed easy enough.

    what helps is not having a million fonts you dont need instaled on font book- it just clutters it up.

    delete the ones you dont use.
     
  16. found it. after 2 further hours -_-
