Cannot Remap a TrueType Font Using Character Translation Table

PSS ID Number: Q101699 Article last modified on 11-03-1994

====================================================================== 6.00 MS-DOS kbother

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for MS-DOS, version 6.0

SUMMARY

In Word for MS-DOS, you cannot remap TrueType fonts using a Character Translation Table (CTT). This happens, in part, as a side effect of the way Word interacts with the symbol set of a TrueType font.

WORKAROUND

To substitute a different character for a TrueType font, create a glossary entry, as described in the following instructions:

  1. Insert the ASCII character code of the character you want to print. With NUM LOCK on, press ALT+NNN on the numeric keypad, where NNN is the ASCII character code. For example, to print ASCII character 185, press ALT+185.

  2. Select the character and format it for the desired TrueType font.

  3. From the Edit menu, choose Glossary.

  4. In the Glossary Name box, type a short name for the glossary entry.

    Note: If you want to assign a one- or two-key code to the glossary entry to use as a shortcut key, see the instructions on page 383 of “Using Microsoft Word.”

  5. Choose the Define button.

To use the glossary entry, type the sort name you gave in step 4 above and press the F3 key or type the key code.
