Type 1 Adobe font RRS feed

  • Question

  • A Type 1 font that I use, New Century Schoolbook, does not appear correct on screen in the Word 2016. It prints correctly, however. Is there a way to use Type 1 fonts with the latest version of Word?

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hi Daniel,

    If you have some postscript fonts, New Century Schoolbook in this context, please install them on your computer.

    I've tested successfully:
      1) downloaded Adobe Type Manager lite(32-bit version), and installed it into Windows 7(32-bit)
      2) downloaded free opentype font(DYLAN) and extracted DYLAN.ZIP to DYLSN.pfm
      3) executed ATM and added DYLAN.pfm to specific folder
      4) install DYLAN.pfm

       (1st and 3rd step might have not been needed. I know very little about postscript font.) 

    Regards.

  • Thanks for the info Ashidacchi. Adobe sells an OpenType version of New Century Schoolbook that I have as well.

    Really, though, my concern is Type 1, or postscript, fonts. My company has decades of Word documents that use this font, and I am not sure how to go about editing these archived docs once we fully upgrade.

    Of course I can write a simple script that replaces every instance of the font in the document. However, pagination matters in these documents, and I am afraid that any replacement font will cause the paging to change as well.

    Any ideas of how to make Type 1 fonts functional in the latest versions of Word would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    As advised, Adobe Type 1 font support has been deprecated. If the Open Type Century Schoolbook font (or another font) that comes with Windows/Office isn't suitable, you'll need to install a True Type or Open Type version of New Century Schoolbook.
