Minimum system requirements and font installation instructions
For information on minimum system requirements and font installation, see http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_fontinstall_en.
To check that you have the correct font file, compare the font version of your font file to the font version provided in the Release Notes section below.
HistoryBefore 1937, telephone books were printed in a variety of typefaces and consequently were often difficult to decipher. Because of his successful work on the legibility problems of newspaper typefaces, Chauncey H. Griffith was hired to develop a typeface that would compact enough to fit large amounts of information on a page while being legible at small sizes even when printed under less than desirable conditions.
Menu Names And Style Linking
In many Windows® applications, instead of every font appearing on the menu, fonts are grouped into style-linked sets, and only the name of the base style font for a set is shown in the menu. The italic and the bold weight fonts of the set (if any) are not shown in the font menu, but can still be accessed by selecting the base style font, and then using the italic and bold style buttons. In this family, such programs will show only the following base style font names in the menu:
Bell Gothic Std Black
Bell Gothic Std Light
The other fonts in this family must be selected by choosing a menu name and then a style option following the guide below.
|Menu Name||plus Style Option...||selects this font|
|Bell Gothic Std Black||[none]||Bell Gothic Std Black|
|Bell Gothic Std Light||[none]||Bell Gothic Std Light|
|Bell Gothic Std Light||Bold||Bell Gothic Std Bold|
On the Mac OS operating system, although each font appears as a separate entry on the font menu, users may also select fonts by means of style links. Selecting a base style font and then using the style links (as described above for Windows applications) enhances cross-platform document compatibility with many applications, such as Microsoft Word and Adobe® PageMaker® software, although it is unnecessary with more sophisticated Adobe applications such as recent versions of Illustrator®, Photoshop® or InDesign® software.
One should not, however, select a base font which has no style-linked variant, and then use the bold or italic styling button. Doing so will either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
