Hi John,

From an ACS emulator session, Edit > Preferences > Appearance > Font, I clicked the Help button and saw

    Font Name

    Select the font name to use for this session. This list is pre-populated with IBM3270 plus all of the fonts supported by the Java Virtual Machine on this operating system. The default is IBM3270.

Then some googling to figure out how to add fonts to the JVM for ACS.  In my case, it was fairly easy - copy/paste the andalemo.ttf file into


then rebooted Windows to make sure the JVM restarted, and voila! Andale mono now shows up in the ACS font selection drop down.

Same with Windows. I'm also a fan of Andale Mono - it looks best at the

How? Are people not reading? I said I have plenty of monospace fonts
on my system that are NOT visible in ACS, but ARE in other
applications. All those other applications can see all the fonts that
I have installed. But ACS cannot. It has a handful of its own fonts
and doesn't give me the option to select any that didn't come with

What is the magic incantation to get ACS to see my fonts?
