Article ID: Q103159



The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c
  • Microsoft Windows operating system version 3.0 and 3.1

This article contains the text of "Fonts and Screen Display Questions and Answers," which is available on the Microsoft FastTips service for Word for Windows. It answers the most frequently asked questions regarding fonts and screen display in Word for Windows.

1. Q. How do I change the default font in Word 2.0 for Windows?

   A. To change the Word default font, use the following two steps:

      1. From the Format menu, choose Character.

      2. After you select the font you want to use, choose the Use As
         Default button, then choose the Yes button to confirm this
         change.

2. Q. Why can't I see my Adobe Type Manager fonts listed in Word for
      Windows?

   A. If Adobe Type Manager has just been installed, the Word for
      Windows initialization file needs to be updated. To update this
      file, choose Print Setup from the File menu. Select the desired
      printer and choose the OK button. The list of available fonts
      should now be correctly displayed.

3. Q. Why do the fonts on the screen look different from the fonts on
      my printout?

   A. For information on the differences between screen fonts and
      printer fonts, refer to page 143 in the "Word for Windows User's
      Guide" or see your Windows documentation.

4. Q. Where are the fonts I had in Microsoft Word for MS-DOS?

   A. Word for MS-DOS requires its own fonts. Word for Windows uses
      fonts supplied by Windows. The fonts in Word for MS-DOS cannot
      be used in Windows. For more information about fonts used in
      Windows, refer to page 143 in the "Word for Windows User's
      Guide" or see your Windows documentation.
