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:
Sava Pro Light
Sava Pro Medium
Sava Pro Regular
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 |
|Sava Pro Light || ||[none] || ||Sava Pro Light |
|Sava Pro Light || ||Bold || ||Sava Pro Semibold |

| || || || || |
|Sava Pro Regular || ||[none] || ||Sava Pro Regular |

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
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
