Determine typeface in existing document

Post by alfred_bowman » 04 Jun 2013, 02:13

I am a noviceworking with an existing document in XPress 4.1, there being no budget for any later version. It uses a typeface I am not familiar with. Is there a quick way of determining the name of this typeface?

Determine typeface in existing document

Are you sure your document is an interactive one? Version 4.1 cannot generate something like this.
If it is a document intended for print, select some text in a text box and look to the font scroll list from the measurement palette. The name of the font must appear here.
I do not remeber quite well version 4.1 (there are probably ten years since I've upgraded), but try the Utilities > Usage > Fonts command.
Hope these can help you.
