Using to Substitute Display Fonts
If a Windows font family is explicitly named in a stylesheet but is not installed on your system, Arbortext Editor will use Times New Roman to display your document and for File > Print Editor View. You can specify a substitute font by making an entry in the file, located in Arbortext-path\lib.
If you are using a language locale, the Arbortext-path\lib\locale directories may contain locale-specific versions of this file. For example, in the Japanese locale, if an Arbortext-path\lib\locale\jpn\ file exists it will be used instead of Arbortext-path\lib\ if APTFONTSUB has not been set to point to an alternative file.
To specify an alternate font for display and Print Editor View:
1. Copy the file to an alternate location on your system.
2. Specify substitutions you wish to make for specific fonts that do not exist on your system.
For example, if you always want to substitute Bookman Old Style for the font family Exotica, enter the following line:
Exotica -> Bookman Old Style
Or, if you want all generic family style names of type Serif to be displayed in Verdana, enter:
Serif -> Verdana
To make your custom file automatically accessible, put it in the Arbortext-path\custom\lib directory to load it automatically upon startup (to avoid setting an environment variable). If you are editing a locale-specific file, you can put it in the appropriate locale-name subdirectory of Arbortext-path\custom\lib\locale.
You can also use the APTFONTSUB environment variable to specify the location of a modified file.
When you make changes to that affect screen display, you should consider making parellel changes to to reflect these font substitutions in your printed output.
