Default Type1 fonts and non-breaking spaces

I recently upgraded from Window 7 using FusionPro 10.0.26 to Windows 10.

Two issues appeared:

1. While I can install Type1 fonts on Windows 10, they do not appear as available in the FusionPro drop-down in the Variable Text Editor.

2. See attached: I converted Helevetica Condensed Type1 font using 'TransType4' to a TrueType version. In FusionPro I created a rule to replace spaces with non-breaking spaces (<&nbsp;>). The tagged texted is not recognized while using Helvetica Condensed but does work properly while using Arial.

Issue 2 resolved: In the Advanced Tab uncheck box 'Limit Processing to Latin-1 text'. This will allow the <&nbsp;> tag to be recognized.

Issue 1: Still need answer on why Type1 fonts are not showing in the font drop-down list in the Variable Text Editor.

Default Re: Type1 fonts and non-breaking spaces

Regarding non-breaking spaces, you could probably do what I suggested here:

Regarding Type 1 PostScript fonts, I am able to install a few of them that we have here on Windows 10, and have them appear in the Variable Text Editor in FusionPro 10.1.

You are doing a Load Fonts in FusionPro after installing the new fonts on your system, right? That's required, for any fonts. (Though this requirement may go away in a future version of FusionPro.)

Also, Type 1 support is basically deprecated on newer versions of both Windows and macOS. (I don't think you can install Type 1 fonts on Mac at all anymore.) Therefore, I would recommend switching over to True Type or Open Type fonts. Another consequence of this deprecation by Microsoft and Apple is that some Type 1 fonts may work better than others. And frankly, your question isn't really "why Type1 fonts are not showing [up]", it's why your font isn't showing up. And that's impossible to answer without the font. So, you can always send the font in question to Support for analysis. But please don't post fonts to this forum.

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally. I am not able to answer private messages, emails, or phone calls unless they go through proper Support channels. Please direct any sales or pricing questions to your salesperson or inquiries@marcom.com.

Complex template-building questions, as well as all installation and font questions or problems, should be directed to FusionProSupport@marcom.com. Paid consulting work may be required to fulfill your template-building needs.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.
