If I use a FONT for presentations, for example "Helvetica Neue", Windows users will see the same source (same size allocated.) ?
I do not have a PC to test.
excuse my English.
Seeing the exact sme font is not just a Windows Problem, it is an OS problem. Another Windows user will only see the same font if they have the same font on thier machine. If I have Windows 7 and put a font in a layout and you have Windows 7, but do not have that same font, then FileMaker has to substitute it. It does a good job with substitutions, but sometimes substitutions are only close, but not exactly the same. And some fonts are not the same type such as TrueType or OpenType, etc. For the most compatibility, you might look at this web page: http://www.ampsoft.net/webdesign-l/WindowsMacFonts.html I personally stick to Arial, Hevitica, Tahoma, and Times. And I prefer OpenType fonts since they are the same files on both Macs and Windows.
Heres an interesting article..
Font rendering is the bane of software design. On top of just the the OS render differently, the resolution can also be slightly different. Windows by default renders at 96 dpi. But can be changed to display at 72 dpi ( and others ). Mac OSX render by default at 72 dpi. So even on Windows with the same fonts installed, it's possible 2 different users could see them differently ( if one changed that scaling setting ).
