Re: WCS translators sought
I am translating it with very good results at least so Alexander told me, if you want the programme in other languages we need other users:)

Re: WCS translators sought
As mentioned in PM I don't know English I use deepl.com to translate, WCS is a technical programme and you need someone who knows English, you should ask on some Italian site.

Re: Fonts for Aros
Nice! This means AROS ONE can handle OT CFF - which means the Monotype font package can be installed and used by any AROS user. Ask for it, people - and have fun with the fonts!

Re: Fonts for Aros
I read your E-mail, it concerns your Font "FSRome-Regular.otf", did you install it as I described above? I have successfully installed your Font "FSRome-Regular.otf", see screenshot Of course it also works well on Windows 7/10. [img]https://www.arosworld.org/infusions/forum/attachments/test_5.jpg[/img]

Re: Fonts for Aros
No, you must not restart, simple you have to 'Install it' you do the same thing on Amiga OS :) - Copy new Fonts to Fonts/TrueType - System folder - Run FTManager - Double Click on the new Fonts you will see in the window - Click "tab" Install After this the new fonts will be available for all Applications [img]https://www.arosworld.org/infusions/forum/attachments/otf.jpg[/img]

Re: Fonts for Aros
Nice - how did you install it? Copying an OTF file into AROS:Fonts does not do the trick - or do I need to reboot?

Re: Fonts for Aros
The .OTF fonts are supported by AROS, I tried a font downloaded from [url=https://www.1001freefonts.com/amosca.font][b]HERE[/b][/url] (Amosca PERSONAL USE ONLY!.otf) and it worked fine on AROS One.

Re: Fonts for Aros
Hi AmigaSystem! Those are CFF files, not OT CFF fonts. Those files store vector info for CorelDraw. A real OT CFF font would end in .otf, not .cff. Let me send you an OT CFF for testing. Cheers Pike

Re: Fonts for Aros
I am not an expert on fonts, i don't know if there are any special installation procedures, I tried to install (drag and drop into Fonts folder) on Win10 a CFF. font pre-washed from [url=https://filesamples.com/formats/cff][b]HERE[/b][/url], Windows informed me it was not supported, same thing with Windows7.

Re: Fonts for Aros
Having worked with fonts for 25 years now, I beg to differ :-) There are two types of OpenType. One is OT TTF - an OpenType that uses the suffix .ttf (like old TrueTypes did). It is downwards compatible with TrueType, so software that cannot use OT TTF but can use TrueType will still be able to recognize OT TTF (although it will not be able to access the full character map, nor will it be able to access OpenType features). OT CFF are OpenTypes that use the suffix .otf. They are being fully supported by Windows (ever since Windows 2000), although some Windows applications took longer to work well with them. Today, however, using Windows 11 and MS Office 2021, you would have no problems using OT CFF. It is fully supported. It better be - because there are almost no foundries left that still produce OT TTF. OT CFF has clearly won this race. I assume Aros is still using TrueType technology to read font chars. That would indeed be sad (especially because MorphOS has no issues with OT CFF). We might want to look into that. Who is working on Fonts for Aros? Being a Monotyper, I might be able to help.

Re: Fonts for Aros
The fonts "CFF" also used by CorelDRAW are not supported by AROS, but neither are they supported by Windows!

Re: Fonts for Aros
Well, these are OT TTF - most OpenType fonts are OT CFF. Let me test an OT CFF to see if that would work, too. If it does, then the package from Monotype will work. :-)

Re: Fonts for Aros
Hi guys, here is something I just posted on the MorphOS forum - but since it also concerns you (as Aros is an Amiga operating system), I will post it here as well: --- Hi MorphOS Community, Monotype used to offer a free font package for MorphOS/AmigaOS users - it could be "purchased" for zero USD/EUR and downloaded on a website called www.linotype.com. It contained 27 styles (selected by yours truly) to give MorphOS users more diverse options for using typography on our beloved OS. Unfortunately, the website linotype.com was shut down a few weeks ago, as Monotype wants to focus on monotype.com and myfonts.com. I cannot currently move the font package to one of these sites. But you can of course still get it. Simply email support@monotype.com and ask for the MorphOS Free Font Package. The support team will forward those requests to me, and I will ensure you get the fonts. I will ensure Monotype keeps providing the fonts - and maybe even offers a second package. Stay tuned. Yours truly Pike --- I work for Monotype, and set up this package a few years ago. It is still available, and you can use the fonts for free on Aros (or any other Amiga operating system). I suppose Aros can handle OpenType fonts?
