    W97 Font - Courier only has size 10 or 12pt

    I have some text in font courier which I need to make size 3pts.
    When I go to change size I only have options for 10 or 12pts.
    & when I enter 3 pts it applies some weird formatting eg 30pts & spacing.
    Does anyone know why this happens & how to fix it.
    TIA
    DIana

    Diana,

    Try Courier New. Courier was not a True Type font (therefore not scalable) like Courier New- although that's not the case now on my WinNT machine.

    HI Geoff W
    Thanks for the tip
    However I need Courier - as I'm writing code for allowing to fax directly from users PC & specs require font to be courier.
    I've applied Courier New & it doesnt send fax.
    Only sends fax using the field codes as font Courier.

    Diana,

    Is the Courier Font connected with the printer device- which I assume is the fax driver? If you change the printer, do you get a full range of sizes?

    I've changed the default printer & its allowed me amend to any size.
    I need a PCL font or printer type font.
