Chapter 10. Font Management > Font Substitutions

Font Substitutions

Fonts are readily available on the Internet these days, so finding fonts you might need is no biggie. You just download them and drop them into the Fonts folder (see the section later on adding fonts). Also, OpenType makes it easier to compress and incorporate fonts into your documents so that, when you share them with others, they are displayed correctly even if the recipient doesn't have the fonts installed in his or her system.

But what if you have older documents that were formatted with fonts not in your system and that you can't acquire? Some word processors, such as Word, have an option to substitute missing fonts with present fonts. In Word, choose Tools, Options, Compatibility, Font Substitutions. If all the fonts you need to print the document are installed in the system, you are told that everything is hunky dory. If not, you can make changes. Check the help file for the word processing program for details.
