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.
HistorySerifa was designed by Adrian Frutiger for the Bauer foundry in 1967. The letterforms are based on those of Frutiger's earlier sans serif design, Univers. Square, unbracketed serifs have been added, making this a slab serif (or Egyptian) typeface. Usually, slab serif types are blocky and difficult to read in text, but Serifa has humanistic forms that are highly readable for both text and display applications such as headlines, captions, or corporate logos.
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:
Serifa Std 45 Light
Serifa Std 55 Roman
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|
|Serifa Std 45 Light||[none]||Serifa Std 45 Light|
|Serifa Std 45 Light||Italic||Serifa Std 46 Light Italic|
|Serifa Std 45 Light||Bold||Serifa Std 65 Bold|
|Serifa Std 55 Roman||[none]||Serifa Std 55 Roman|
|Serifa Std 55 Roman||Italic||Serifa Std 56 Italic|
|Serifa Std 55 Roman||Bold||Serifa Std 75 Black|
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.
