HistoryDesigned by Robert Slimbach, Warnock Pro is an Adobe® Originals type composition family named after John Warnock, the co-founder of Adobe® Systems, whose visionary spirit has led to major advances in desktop publishing and graphic arts software. A full-featured, state-of-the-art OpenType® font format family - with Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek character sets in a variety of weights and optical size ranges-Warnock Pro is a classic yet contemporary composition family that performs a wide variety of typographic tasks with elegance.
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:
Warnock Pro Caption
Warnock Pro Display
Warnock Pro Light
Warnock Pro Light Caption
Warnock Pro Light Display
Warnock Pro Light Subhead
Warnock Pro SmBd
Warnock Pro SmBd Caption
Warnock Pro SmBd Display
Warnock Pro SmBd Subhead
Warnock Pro Subhead

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.
Typefaces with optical size variants have had their designs subtly adjusted for use at specific point size ranges.
Please see Adobe Type - Optical Sizes for a current discussion of the uses of optical sizes.
This capability reintroduces one of the features of hand-cut metal type, which uses a separate font for each point size and is often optically adjusted. This is an advantage over the current common practice of scaling a single digital type design to different point sizes, which may reduce legibility at smaller sizes or sacrifice subtlety at larger sizes. The objective of optical sizing is to maintain the integrity and legibility of the underlying typeface design throughout a range of point sizes. The adjustments typically made to the design to optimize it for different sizes are: for larger point sizes, the space between characters (letter fit) tightens, the space within characters (counterforms) closes up (i.e., the letters are slightly more condensed), the serifs become finer and the stroke contrast becomes greater, the overall weight becomes lighter, and the x-height gradually diminishes; for smaller point sizes, opposite adjustments are made. Smaller optical sizes are also useful when output resolution is very limited, such as for on-screen display. One might choose to use a smaller optical size design for creating text on buttons for a Web page, for example. These adjustments can improve the legibility of intermediate point sizes further if there is a greater change in design at smaller sizes than at larger sizes. For example, the difference in design between Caption and Regular optical sizes, which usually have a difference in intended usage size of only 4-8 points, is often almost as much as the difference between the regular and display sizes, which usually have a difference of 10-60 points.
Although any of the fonts may be used at any size, the intended point sizes for the designs of this family are:
