psfonts metrics for Textures (1995/08/20) ============================ A selection of metrics from the CTAN fonts/psfonts distribution converted for use with Textures. By Constantin Kahn <email@example.com>, <firstname.lastname@example.org> Contents -------- There are three binhexed Compact Pro archives in this collection: lw35-metrics.cpt.hqx expands to a metrics suitcase `LW35 psnfss+dvips metrics' which contains all psnfss and dvips metrics for the basic 35 PostScript fonts. These are precisely the metrics contained in the psfonts/adobe subdirectories avantgar, bookman, courier, helvetic, ncntrsbk, palatino, symbol, times, zapfchan, and zapfding with the exception of the metrics corresponding to the Helvetica-Light fonts. In addition there is a small suitcase `8r reencoding' which contains the Textures support for the 8r encoding. lw35-nodvips.cpt.hqx expands to a metrics suitcase `LW35 psnfss metrics' which contains a subset of the suitcase `LW35 psnfss+dvips metrics'; all metrics which are only relevant for backwards compatibility with dvips metrics have been removed. For typesetting with the LaTeX2e psnfss package this smaller suitcase is sufficient. In addition there is a small suitcase `8r reencoding' which contains the Textures support for the 8r encoding. lucida-metrics.cpt.hqx expands to a metrics suitcase `Lucida Bright psnfss metrics' which contains all metrics in the psfonts/bh/* directories; this set covers most of the fonts belonging to the Lucida Bright, Lucida NewMath, and Lucida Expert sets. Two small suitcases `phvluc metrics' and `ptmluc metrics' contain Lucida based math fonts for Helvetica and Times based on the fontinst sources in the psnfss distribution. In addition there is a small suitcase `8r reencoding' which contains the Textures support for the 8r encoding. Installation ------------ Download the relevant *.cpt.hqx files as text files, debinhex them, and extract the contents from the resulting archives. (Stuffit Expander will perform the last two steps if the downloaded files are dropped onto it.) Then drop the resulting Textures metrics suitcases into the `TeX Fonts' folder (or into `TeX Metrics'). The `8r reencoding' suitcases contained in all three archives are identical. Only one is needed in the `TeX Fonts' or the `TeX Metrics' folder. IMPORTANT: This will only install the *metrics* in the Textures sense, i.e., the equivalent of the `tfm', `vf', and `dvips' subdirectories of individual font directories. You will still need to download and install all the required *.fd and *.sty files into a directory where Textures can find them before the fonts can be used with LaTeX2e. Requirements: Textures 1.7 or later is required; version 1.7.5 or newer is recommended. More comments can be found in the README files contained in the individual archives.
textures-metrics – Adobe font metrics, converted for use with Textures
A small collection of metrics from CTAN, converted and packed for Textures system use. Textures version 1.7.5 (at least) is recommended for using these metrics.
