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.
HistoryAlthough designed by the Hungarian Nicholas Kis in about 1690, the model for Janson Text was mistakenly attributed to the Dutch printer Anton Janson. Kis original matrices were found in Germany and acquired by the Stempel foundry in 1919. This version of Janson comes from the Stempel foundry and was designed from the original type; it was issued by Linotype in digital form in 1985. In the 1930s, Janson Text replaced Caslon as the face of choice for fine bookmaking. Its strong design and clear stroke contrast combine to create text that is both elegant and easy to read.
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 are not shown, and 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:Janson Text LT Std
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|
|Janson Text LT Std||[none]||Janson Text LT Std 55 Roman|
|Janson Text LT Std||Italic||Janson Text LT Std 56 Italic|
|Janson Text LT Std||Bold||Janson Text LT Std 75 Bold|
|Janson Text LT Std||Bold, Italic||Janson Text LT Std 76 Bold Italic|
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 weight which has no style-linked variant or is itself a style-linked variant, and then additionally 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.
