How can I get the name of the missing font?

Post by Zinn »

When an odc document uses a font, which I have not installed on my computer, how can I get the name of this missing font? Selecting the text and clicking with right mouse button -> Properties doesn't show the missing font name. It shows the font name which is used instead.

refer to HostDialog.TypefaceDialog, you can get a funtion

Code: Select all

	PROCEDURE FormalTypeface*;
		VAR p: Properties.StdProp; 
	BEGIN
		Properties.CollectStdProp(p);
		IF Properties.typeface IN p.known THEN
			Log.String(p.typeface);Log.Ln;
		END
	END FormalTypeface;
and a test menu

Code: Select all

	"Formal Typeface"	""	"HostDialog.FormalTypeface"	"StdCmds.SelectionGuard"
	"Test"	""	"StdCmds.Font('Test')"	"StdCmds.SelectionGuard"
select a text and set a test typeface, then check it's formal name.
