# Common Font Aliases for FrameMaker for Windows

Source: Adobe Technical Database; Document Number 317180© 1998 Adobe Systems Incorporated.

There are several reasons why fonts in a FrameMaker for Mac OS or UNIX document may be substituted when you open the document in FrameMaker for Windows. First, Windows fonts don't always have the same name as equivalent fonts in the Mac OS and UNIX platforms. For example, while there is a font named Helvetica-Narrow in Windows, there is not a similarly named font in Mac OS or UNIX. In these platforms, the width variation (Narrow) is independent of the font family. Another font property that is different in Windows is the slant, or angle. In Windows, font angles are either roman or italic, while in Mac OS and UNIX fonts may also be oblique.

Because these font properties are different in Windows than they are in other platforms, the fonts may be mapped to other fonts when you open a FrameMaker or FrameMaker+SGML document for Mac OS or UNIX document in Windows. However, you can add font aliases to the Maker.ini file (FrameMaker) or Fmsgml.ini file (FrameMaker+SGML) so that the same font information appears the same in FrameMaker, regardless of platform. FrameMaker will not remap fonts for which you've created an alias.

## To create an alias for missing fonts:

- Create a backup copy of the Maker.ini file located in the FrameMaker installation directory.
- Open the original Maker.ini in a text editor that can save in text-only format (e.g., NotePad).

NOTE: Some fonts use weights that are not defined by default. You need weight definition before creating the alias. - Find the line:

`Weights=Thin 100, ExtraLight 200, SemiLight 250, Light 300, Book 300, Regular 400, SemiBold 600, DemiBold 600, Bold 700, ExtraBold 800, Heavy 900`

- Add the definitions for Black and Extra Black so the lines reads as follows:

`Weights=Thin 100, ExtraLight 200, SemiLight 250, Light 300, Book 300, Regular 400, Black 400, Bold 700, SemiBold 700, DemiBold 600, ExtraBlack 800, ExtraBold 800, Heavy 900`

- Scroll to the
`[WindowstoFrameFontAliases]`

section, then add font aliases as needed. - Save the Maker.ini file in text-only format.

- Restart FrameMaker.

The settings use this syntax (it must be on one line):

Windows-font [angle|*], [weight|*]=Frame-font [angle|*], [weight|*], [variation|*]

## List of common fonts

The following is a list of the most common fonts that you need to alias in the Maker.ini file:

Windows-font

This is a font family available in Windows. The angle for this font can be either Regular or Italic, and the weight can be one of the weights defined in the font profile under [Fonts]. You can also use an asterisk (*) to specify no particular angle or weight.

Frame-font

This is a font family available on the other platforms. The angle, weight, and variation for this family can be any of the ones defined in the font profile. If you use an asterisk (*), the FrameMaker font will use the angle, weight, or variation from the Windows font.
