Thanks all. I was just getting so frustrated having to redo something that I
thought was done, I couldn't take a step back. I was told that the Regular
package included Italic fonts, but upon examination as suggested, it
doesn't. I did try Stuart's suggestion of Oblique and it looks like garbage,
that's for sure as Stuart also warned about.

 

Ok, grumble, grumble, grumble . . . I really wish this client would not be
so stuck on using these fonts.

 

Thanks all,

 

I appreciate the help and understanding from y'all.

HI Tammy, 

 

Nothing's broken, you just need an italicized version of the font installed
on your system.

All,

A client is insisting on using a proprietary font in the source FM files
despite my best attempts to keep them vanilla with Times New Roman and
Arial. They have supplied me with two font sets for this font - one is
Regular weight (to be used for any paragraph tags that are non-Heading tags)
and a Bold weight (to be used for any paragraph tags that are Heading tags).
I have several character formats in my catalog that I want to be able to
continue to use. One of these tags is Emphasis. All properties for the tag
are set to As Is with the exception of the angle, which I have set to
Italic. 

When I apply this tag to any paragraph tags that are non-Heading tags (i.e.,
the tags use the regular weight version of this proprietary font), the tag
is apparently not applied. The font angle does not change, and in the lower
left corner of the page identifying what tags are being used, I see Emphasis
with an asterisk in front of it (*Emphasis).  I thought that maybe I had
corrupted the tag somehow, so I applied the same tag to some text that used
simply good old Times New Roman font in the same document, and voila, the
text was immediately italicized and the tag showed Emphasis without an
asterisk.

I have not really ever had to use proprietary fonts before in a FM source
file, so I am obviously missing something behind the use of such fonts that
is preventing character tags from being applied as expected. 

Any guidance/assistance is greatly appreciated.

Regards,

TVB
