Font weight scaling problem

Recommended Posts

Mungo

I have encountered that the font weight does not seem to scale the way I would have expected. The degree of "bold" does not always increase with the weight value but even reverses e.g. 700 being less bold than 600 ?

Does anyone have an idea?

Code and screenshot below.

Cheers

Mungo,

The Help file explains that Windows will accept anything from 1 to 10 "hundreds" as a "weight" value, but as I understand it what is actually displayed depends on the number of "weight"s a particular font contains for a given size. Different fonts have different numbers of internal "weight"s for each font size, although it seems 400 (normal) and 700 (bold) are supported in the majority of fonts at most sizes. :)

So you cannot predict exactly what you will get at other values, as if a given "weight" is not supported in a font at the required size Windows will choose what it considers as "most suitable" - which, as you have just shown, might not be what you expect. :wacko:

Thanks Melba23,

Yes, the help is actually very detailed and good. However, what confused me was the (for me) unexpected kinks when increasing the "weight" factor. I tried various "weight" settings in a 100 increment from 0 to 1000 also with different fonts and sizes. Different fonts behave slightly differently especially in relation to the increase / decrease of boldness when weight factor is increased.

E. g. Arial, Segoe UI, Tahoma and Times New Roman actually show two kinks (steps) first increasing the "boldness" drastically (with 600) but then decreasing again to a lesser extent (>=700).

The results are that boldness from 0 to 500 is "normal", 600 is "very bold" and 700 to 1000 is "bold" lower again (Example left). It actually looks like a MS bug to me ...  ;)

Other fonts such as MS Sans Serif and MS Serif only show one kink when increasing the boldness factor (Example righ)

I wonder whether these results could also be related to the font version or OS used ? I use Win 7. Any other experiences with XP and Win 8 and 8.1 ?

Cheers

Mungo

      I am trying to print using a small font, but no mater how I try it, the printed font remains unchanged.
      I have created a sample script that sets the font to 8.
      Here are the functions I use to create, then set the font:
      Func _Printer_SetFont($hDC) Local $hFont If ($a__Printer_Font == 0) Then _Printer_MakeFont() EndIf $hFont = $a__Printer_Font _LogMsg("+++: $hDC & " & $hDC & ", $hFont = " & $hFont) _WinAPI_SetFont($hDC, $hFont) ; <===================== EndFunc ;==>_Printer_SetFont Func _Printer_MakeFont() Local $hFontDC, $err, $errm, $str, $flag, $iHeight $flag = $FW_BOLD $iHeight = 8 $hFontDC = _WinAPI_CreateFont( _ $iHeight, _ 0, _ ; average character width 0, _ ; angle of escape 0, _ ; base-line orientation $flag, _ ; font weight - $FW_NORMAL, $FW_BOLD, etc. False, _ ; italic False, _ ; underline False, _ ; strikeout $DEFAULT_CHARSET, _ ; the character set $OUT_DEFAULT_PRECIS, _ ; the output precision $CLIP_DEFAULT_PRECIS, _ ; the clipping precision $DEFAULT_QUALITY, _ ; the output quality 0, _ ; the pitch and family of the font "courier new") ; typeface name _LogMsg("+++: $hFontDC = 0x" & Hex($hFontDC)) If ($hFontDC <= 0) Then $str = "_WinAPI_CreateFont() failed." & @CRLF $err = _WinAPI_GetLastError() $errm = _WinAPI_GetLastErrorMessage() _LogMsg("+++: " & $err & ", 0) - '" & $errm & "'" & @CRLF & $str) Exit (9) EndIf $a__Printer_Font = $hFontDC EndFunc ;==>_Printer_MakeFont Here is the complete script:

      By argumentum

      On the above pic. of the ASCII table, one can see in a "normal" size, the characters below 32.
      I use this chars. to visualize data and comm stuff, and prefer to see it in Terminal, size 9, 400, but in Win 10 looks tiny, forcing me to use a humongous size.
      I'd like to see it as I did in WinXP. If anyone knows how to go about it, by tweaking something or installing a replacement font, please let me know.

      I use a monospace font for editing AutoIt scripts in SciTE (currently, CourierNew 9pt). Regardless of what font size I set in the configuration, when I start SciTE to resume editing the script text is one size smaller than I specified. When I type Ctrl+<numpad-slash> the text changes to the desired size. The same is true of the output pane, and I have to reset the size for both areas every time I start SciTE.
      IIRC, I've made few other changes to the configuration (e.g., changed the search highlight color and disabled Tidy), so this behavior seems odd. About SciTE says it's version 3.6.0 (Aug. 4, 2015).
      Any idea how to fix this?
