Some Fonts Are Not Displayed in WordPerfect with Windows 3.1


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows versions 3.1, 3.11


When you run version 5.1 of WordPerfect with Windows 3.1, the following fonts are not displayed in font lists:

  • Light, Demibold, and Heavy Fonts
  • WingDings and Symbol Fonts

WordPerfect Corporation has corrected this problem and has an update available. WordPerfect customers can call WordPerfect for information about obtaining the update.


Light, Demibold, and Heavy Fonts

WordPerfect does not display the following TrueType fonts:

Lucida Bright Demibold

Lucida Calligraphy
Lucida Fax Demibold
Lucida Fax Demibold Italic
Lucida Handwriting

WordPerfect recognizes only regular and bold versions of a font. If other variations, such as light, demibold, or heavy, are available, WordPerfect for Windows has difficulty using these fonts.

WingDings and Symbol Fonts

If you run WordPerfect with Windows 3.1 and use a Windows 3.1 printer driver, WordPerfect does not display Symbol or WingDings TrueType fonts in its font selection dialog box.
