Hi,

Not a clue about your real problem. I just had to respond: How can you even 
DREAM of paying for something like that out of your own pocket? Big guy wants 
the job done - big guy pays. Judging by your contributions to the list over the 
years, I think your employer should cherish you and respect your judgment 
enough to do that!

-> Subject: Keycaps fonts lose their already shady characters
-> 
-> All:
-> 
-> I recently needed to show actual key caps in some 
-> documentation.  After a plea on austechwriters and googling 
-> around, I was able to find three keycaps fonts, one 
-> shareware and not very aesthetic, and two of unknown 
-> provenance, probably copyright.  But they all exhibit the 
-> same baffling behaviour, so I'll just use one for the 
-> following examples.
-> 
-> If Character Map is set to the keycaps font and I select the 
-> characters corresponding to A B C a b and c , I get the A B 
-> C Alt Return and CapsLock key caps in the Characters To Copy 
-> box.  Copying these characters from Character Map and 
-> _pasting_ into FrameMaker retains these characters.  But, if 
-> I create a character or paragraph format set to use the 
-> keycaps font, and then _type_ A B C a b and c , I get A B C 
-> A B and C, except that the second lot of caps are slightly 
-> smaller, like small capitals.  Re-applying the keycaps 
-> character and paragraph formats makes no difference -- the a 
-> b c characters stay stubbornly alphabetic and do not display 
-> as Alt Return and CapsLock.
-> 
-> What is the reason for this odd behaviour and can anyone 
-> suggest a workaround other than copying from Character Map?  
-> Can anybody direct me to other keycaps fonts that behave 
-> correctly in FrameMaker**, preferably freeware  (but I am 
-> prepared to pay a modest price out of my own pocket, even 
-> though it's my employers job).
-> 
-> Regards,
-> Hedley
-> 
-> ** But Wordpad, Microsoft Word, and OpenOffice.org Writer 
-> display the correct characters when the paragraph or 
-> character format applies the keycaps font.  So can someone 
-> at Adobe tell me why FrameMaker won't handle these fonts 
-> correctly as displayed in Character Map and in the font 
-> viewer when you double-click the font file in the Windows 
-> Font folder?
