Overview

To properly run all the applications on your machine, you need to check and install several type of fonts. You need to check and copy and paste some standard fonts for Windows. To properly run FrameMaker, you need to install Adobe Type Manager and some specific fonts to adhere to our FrameMaker templates.

All the fonts are located in the font folder in the Documentation folder on Camdoc2. The exact location for this folder is the following:

\\Camdoc2\Groups\Internetworking Services\GNI\Development Process\Documentation\ Tools and Templates\Fonts

Windows Fonts (fonts folder)

Please check the following list to make sure there are the standard list of fonts on your machine (for Windows 95). The location is C:\Windows\fonts. This is the first step in installing fonts: although the fonts listed below should be on your computer, if they are not you have to cut and paste them into your fonts folder.

Currently all of the standard Windows fonts are located on Camdoc2 at the following location:

 \\Camdoc2\Groups\Internetworking Services\GNI\Development Process\ Documentation\Tools and Templates\Fonts\Windows\std fonts

Adobe Type Manager Fonts (psfonts folder)

You need to install the Adobe Type Manager. The Adobe Type Manager (ATM) is located on the Frame CD Rom and it must be installed before you install FrameMaker.

  1. Install Adobe Type Manager, which will prompt you to create a folder entitled c:\psfonts and restart your computer.
     
  2. After restarting your computer, open the Adobe Type Manager on your machine by going to the Start > Programs > Adobe > Adobe Type Mangermenu. The following dialog box opens:


    Note: After reinstalling Adobe Type Manager, you may see fonts in the left-hand window pane of the Adobe Type Manager dialog box. These are usually "phantom" fonts and require replacement.
     
  3. Map to the Documentation Services folder on Camdoc2 where the psfonts folder resides. To map to that directory, click on the down arrow in the right-hand window pane of the Adobe Type Manager dialog box, click on Network Neighborhood and go to the following path:

    \\Camdoc2\Groups\Internetworking Services\GNI\Development Process\Documentation\Tools and Templates\Fonts\psfonts\Pfm


     
  4. Highlight all the fonts in the Pfm folder. Do NOT select the Add Without Copying Files check box.
     
  5. Click Add to install the required fonts on your machine. To guarantee that you get all the proper fonts, install all the fonts in both the psfonts and the Pfm folder.
     
  6. Go to the Settings Tab and increase the Font Cache to 896 k.
     
  7. Close Adobe Type Manager (ATS) by choosing Alt + F4.
     
  8. Restart Windows for the changes to take effect.

Note: To verify that all the fonts tranfered properly to your machine, open the folder psfonts in Windows Explorer to view all the fonts, especially Helvetica and Palantino.

When you first open FrameMaker after installation, if all of the proper fonts are not installed, a dialog box will open stating there are unavailable fonts and that FrameMaker can replace them with other existing fonts. You have two options:

  • You can click OK and open the FrameMaker file. A seperate window, entitled "FrameMaker Console" opens detailing which fonts were replaced and with what replacement font. Do not save this file or the the replacement fonts will become permanant and then the incorrect fonts will continually appear in your documentation.
     
  • You can click Cancel and not open FrameMaker and repeat the font installation process to install the correct fonts.
