Re: Baron font only in italic, not regular

I found that Word handles a lot more fonts plain wrong. Reverting to Illustrator for design tasks involving type.

Re: Baron font only in italic, not regular

This may be true but I'm not selecting office applications just by that.

Re: Baron font only in italic, not regular

Yes, that's what Word and most other simple (non-typographic) Windows programs require. It works well in all other fonts. But not in this one. I might as well give up, too, and just accept that the font takes six independent font entries and style selection is not possible at all (not even the four ...

Re: Baron font only in italic, not regular

Whatever you have done, it didn't work out too well. Now I only have "Baron Neue" and no Black anymore. Also, there's just a single bolder weight which can be regular or italic. Funny that Windows control panel now displays cyrillic glyphs as preview but that doesn't have to say much. Some normal fo...

Re: Baron font only in italic, not regular

What have you changed in these files? I've tried them (after deleting the Office font cache which improved things slightly) and they work in Word 2010. I'd just expect that the Black and Black Italic would be listed in the same family and could be selected with the italic format button. They're two ...

Re: Baron font only in italic, not regular

What other computer? The original files have a separate family name for each file. So there's no issue at all. Except that the font taks six lines in font selection lists. My changes are only about the name and descriptions of the files. And these files cause issues on every computer I've tried so f...

Re: Baron font only in italic, not regular

I have now tried it on another computer that has never seen a font with this name. And it's chaotic. I've installed all six files by dragging them into the Fonts control panel window. Then I opened Word 2010 to select the font. In the font list, all Baron fonts (1. basic 4 styles and 2. additional B...

Re: Baron font only in italic, not regular

I've done that a few times already. PagePlus looks like it could use most font features and not just the four basic styles. I've done more tests now. Microsoft Word still can't show the non-italic font. But Windows Notepad and WordPad and Excel can do it just fine. So maybe it's a Word problem? Does...

Re: Baron font only in italic, not regular

In what application did you test the fonts? I can install them as often as I want, in any order, but Microsoft Word will only show the italic font. The italic toolbar button has no effect at all on this font in Normal weight. The fonts appear correctly in the Windows control panel Fonts view, but th...

Re: Baron font only in italic, not regular

Well, I'm certainly not a professional or experienced font designer. I've just looked up all the terms I encountered and think they make sense to me.

Here are the two font files that cause the problem.

Baron font only in italic, not regular

Hi, I've found the free Baron font and downloaded it. It's 6 .otf files. Unfortunately, the files each define a different font family so they appear as 6 independent entries in font family lists of applications. The Bold and Italic style buttons in MS Word for example did nothing useful. I tried to ...
