nope, because you can still buy times new roman.jamdr said:Yeah, I see it on a friend's Mac with Office installed, but not on mine. I guess it comes from that. Would it be legal for me to copy it over (I'll probably do it anyway, but I'd like to know )
Probably not, but its not like it's a program.jamdr said:Yeah, I see it on a friend's Mac with Office installed, but not on mine. I guess it comes from that. Would it be legal for me to copy it over (I'll probably do it anyway, but I'd like to know )
Thats because Times New Roman is a Windows core font... (just wondering, are Apple fonts nice?)Bear said:Strangely enough, another way to get <i>Times New Roman</i> is to install Internet Explorer as part of Panther. And then before even running IE, just dump it into the trash.
You do know Windows XP has a "font smoother" that makes all the fonts look like Apples? (key part in skinning it to look like OS X) Right click on desktop, click Properties, Appearance, Effects..., and check "Use the following method to smooth fonts..." and select "ClearType"cubist said:On Windows, I have even tried deleting the TTF file to try to eliminate the scourge of Times New Roman, but it keeps coming back! I like Century Gothic and I have it as the default font in every single place in Microsoft Office I can find to set it. But no matter what I do, Word keeps changing things back to Times New Roman! It's got to be one of the ugliest typefaces ever invented! Why does arrogant Word insist on using it?
And then to hear of someone who doesn't have it -- and wants it! Why, it's like the ancient mariner hearing of someone who yearns for a dead albatross around his neck!
I agree. A font like Arial was made to be viewed on a computer screen where as Times New Roman was made to be viewed on paper. This explains why Word uses it by default. Word was made to print documents. People on this thread need to understand the difference between serif and sans serif fonts. They are two totally different things.brap said:Serif'd fonts look like crap on any screen without an insane dpi count, ClearType or no...
Here is a screenshot of my freeware TinkerTool Application that manges system fonts. I have all of mine set to default.AdamZ said:So does anyone know a breakdown of which fonts Apple uses. They look pretty cool I think, many Mac related sites duplicate the look. But what is OSX main fonts?
A lot of professors do that just because they get tired of the occasional student pplaying with fonts and sizes to try to massage the apparent length of their papers...so not that Times New Roman is particularly a great thing, but because (well, apparently *almost* everyone) everyone has it, and so it takes the font/size issue out of the equation, and it's easier on the prof/instructor than counting words....dotdotdot said:Times New Roman is one of those very important fonts because of its "classy business" look. My history teacher wont accept ANY papers unless they are written in Times New Roman, 12 Pt. Font. Of course, he gets pissed when my friend who doesnt HAVE times new roman (windows w/o word or anything - his PC sucks) and gets a B+ MINIMUM. Must suck for Mac users - of course, there are none in my school.
