Fonts

Post by BobH »

Can anyone suggest a good web site for viewing commonly used fonts?
I'm looking for a font of small caps to use for legends in display boxes.

Bob: whether your chosen font will render as you expect may well depend on the fonts which are installed on the user's device! A substitute font may well be used, which for something like small caps may look nothing like what you want.
The alternative may be to embed the font - or just the characters you want - in the data stream...

That amounted to nothing.​​

Assuming you want something you want to print out as labels for display boxes:

If you use Word, I believe most installed fonts can be formatted as/with small caps:

Select the text, right-click, and select Font...

Thank you, Gentlemen!

John, I'm aware that fonts are a 'sometimes' thing, but I have to choose something.

Leif, thank you for reminding of what Word can do. Its list of fonts shows them as they should display and choosing fonts lets me set small caps. :cheers: :chocciebar: :thankyou:
