Difference Between Word and Windows TrueType Font Files

Q103754



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Word for MS-DOS, version 6.0





SUMMARY

The file size of the TrueType font files (.TTF) supplied with Word for MS-DOS is larger than the file size of the corresponding TrueType font files supplied with Microsoft Windows operating system version 3.1. This is because the Word .TTF files include support for additional character sets, namely the Greek, mathematics, and lower ASCII symbols Word uses to create bullets.

If you want to conserve hard disk space by using the same .TTF files in both Windows and Word, replace your Windows .TTF files with the ones supplied with Word. This article contains a list of the .TTF files supplied with both Word and Windows.

If you change the location of the TrueType fonts that Windows uses, you must update the [Fonts] section of your WIN.INI file to reflect the new location.
