Re: fonts - a way to see what fonts are loaded?



fixed

The only reason for buying the font installer is it gives you a GUI to
copy the fonts and will build a RAT, Resource Allocation Table, which ties
the file name such as ArialB to the real name which is internal Arial
Bold. I've tested and it works just fine without a RAT present. I have a
font sample program that I can send you and instructions on getting your
starter set of fonts.

Even though I see actual *.ttf files in
qibm/proddata(userdata)/os400/fonts/TTFonts I don't think I can just
upload to there correct?

do I need to BUY the "Font Installer for AFP"?

Downloading or simply using Open Type fonts is a better solution. Just
verify that any actual printers that you are using supports them.

do I just create a program to cycle through font numbers??

is there a way to "download" more?

I need to give to management a list of "available" fonts...

I am outputting directly to pdf, so do I have other options than just
the FONT keyword?
