DESCRIPTION OF CONTENTS

The Thames font family is Rubicon's implementation of the Times design.
It is an isometric font clone of the original.

Rubicon's isometric font clones are digitised on a 2000x2000 pixel grid.
They are isometric to their namesakes, meaning that the Postscript font
metrics are the same. This includes character widths, baselines, side
bearings, bounding boxes, and kerning pairs. MacIntosh versions include
10 & 12 point hand-tuned screen fonts.

FONT INSTALLATION PROCEDURES

Rubicon's Isometric Fonts are provided in Postscript and Truetype
versions, in PC or MAC format. Installation instructions are given
below for the following operating systems:

Windows 3.1 & Truetype
Windows 3.x & Postscript
Windows 95 & Truetype
Windows 95 & Postscript
Windows NT & Truetype
MS-DOS & Truetype
MS-DOS & Postscript
OS/2 & Postscript
MAC System 7 & Truetype
MAC System 7 & Postscript
MAC System 6 & Truetype
MAC System 6 & Postscript

PC versions can also be used with certain other computer platforms or
operating systems, and in certain printing devices which accept
downloadable fonts directly.

The Isometric Fonts software is distributed in either uncompressed
format (ready to use) or in a compressed archive format, e.g. ZIP for
PC's or a Stuffit archive for MAC's. Compressed font archives must be
expanded before installation (this has probably been done already, to
permit the user to read this file). The font installation software will
need the location of the new (uninstalled fonts), i.e. the names of the
disk drive and directory path (folder) where the new fonts are stored.

The new font files should be placed either on a floppy diskette,
or in a temporary directory (folder) on a hard disk. These files are
not needed after installation, but a backup copy should be retained.
During installation, the font software is copied onto hard disk, in the
appropriate location.

WINDOWS 3.1 & TRUETYPE

To install Truetype fonts into Microsoft Windows 3.1, first note the
location where the new (uninstalled) fonts are stored. The name of the
disk drive is needed and the directory path, if any. From inside Windows

Switch to the program group "Main"
Open the icon "Control Panel"
Open the icon "Fonts" (not "Printers")
Select the "Add" button
The dialogue box "Add Fonts" will appear
Specify the location of the new fonts as follows:
Choose the disk drive letter from the "Drives" menu
(Disk drives are denoted a: b: c: etc.)
Choose the directory path, if any, from the "Directories" menu
The "List of Fonts" menu should display the new font names
Choose "Select All" to install all the new fonts
Or, select fonts individually from the "List of Fonts" menu
(Hold down the shift key to select more than one font)
Mark the option box "Copy fonts to Windows directory"
Choose "OK", then wait while Windows installs the selected fonts
Close the "Fonts" window to return to the Windows "Control Panel"
End

In case of difficulty, consult the MS-Windows User's Guide, under
"Truetype fonts, adding".

WINDOWS 3.x & POSTSCRIPT

Adobe Type Manager (ATM) for Windows is an alternative to the Truetype
font rasterizer that is provided with Microsoft Windows 3.1. Older
versions of ATM also work with Windows 3.0. ATM uses Postscript Type1
fonts rather than Truetype fonts. The installation procedure for ATM 2.0
and Windows 3.1 is as follows. Other versions of ATM and/or Windows
operate similarly.

First, note the location where the new (uninstalled) fonts are stored.
The name of the disk drive is needed and the directory path, if any.
From inside Windows

Close any programs that are in use
Switch to the program group "Main"
Open the icon "ATM Control Panel"
Select the "Add" button
The dialogue box "Add ATM Fonts" will appear
Specify the location of the new fonts as follows:
Choose the disk drive letter from the "Directories" menu
(Disk drives are denoted [-a-] [-b-] [-c-] etc.)
Choose the directory path, if any, from the "Directories" menu
The "Available Fonts" menu should display the new font names
Select fonts individually from this menu
(Hold down the shift key to select more than one font)
Set the "Target directory for Postscript fonts"
the default should be OK, normally "c:\psfonts"
Set the "Target directory for font metrics files"
the default should be OK, normally "c:\psfonts\pfm"
Select the "Add" button
Wait while ATM installs the selected fonts
Exit the ATM Control Panel
Choose the option to "Restart Windows", then wait
End

In case of difficulty, consult the ATM User Guide, under "Adding and
removing fonts".

WINDOWS 95 & TRUETYPE

The Windows 95 Truetype font installation procedure is almost identical
to that of Windows 3.1. To install Truetype fonts into Microsoft Windows
95, first note the location where the new (uninstalled) fonts are
stored. The name of the disk drive is needed and the folder (directory),
if any. From inside Windows 95

Switch to the program group "Main"
Open the icon "Control Panel"
Open the icon "Fonts"
From the "File" menu, choose "Install New Font"
The dialogue box "Add Fonts" should appear
Specify the location of the new fonts as follows:
Choose the disk drive letter from the "Drives" menu
(Disk drives are denoted a: b: c: etc.)
Choose the folder, if any, from the "Folders" menu
The "List of Fonts" menu should display the new font names
Choose "Select All" to install all the new fonts
Or, select fonts individually from the "List of Fonts" menu
(Hold down the shift key to select more than one font.)
Mark the option box "Copy fonts to Fonts folder"
Choose "OK", then wait while Windows installs the selected fonts
Close the "Fonts" window to return to the Windows "Control Panel"
Close the "Control Panel" window to return to Windows 95
End

In case of difficulty, consult the MS-Windows 95 documentation.

WINDOWS 95 & POSTSCRIPT

Adobe Type Manager (ATM) for Windows 95 is an alternative to the
Truetype font rasterizer that is provided with Microsoft Windows 95. ATM
uses Postscript Type1 fonts rather than Truetype fonts. Installation
should be similar to Windows 3.1 (see above), or consult the ATM for
Windows 95 documentation.

WINDOWS NT & TRUETYPE

For installation of Truetype fonts, consult the MS-Windows NT documen-
tation. If and when Adobe Type Manager (ATM) is available for Windows
NT, consult the ATM documentation for installation of Postscript fonts.

MS-DOS & TRUETYPE

MS-DOS does not support Truetype fonts directly. Those MS-DOS
applications with Truetype font support each have their own unique
installation procedures. Consult the corresponding User Guides.

Example: Word Perfect 6.0.

MS-DOS & POSTSCRIPT

MS-DOS does not support Postscript fonts directly. Those MS-DOS
applications with Postscript font support each have their own unique
installation procedures. Consult the corresponding User Guides.

Examples: Adobe Font Foundry, Word Perfect 6.0, Ventura Publisher.

OS/2 & POSTSCRIPT

OS/2 provides direct support for Postscript fonts. Note that many users
run Windows 3.1 on top of OS/2. Windows programs require that the fonts
be installed into Windows (as above). Either Truetype or Postscript
fonts can be used.

To install Postscript fonts into OS/2, first note the location where the
new (uninstalled) fonts are stored. The drive letter is needed and the
directory path, if any. Typical examples would be "A:\" or "C:\TEMP".

From the OS/2 System icon view, use the mouse to:

double click the "System Setup" icon
double click the "Font Palette" icon
single click the "Edit Font" button
single click the "Add" button
set the drive/directory of the new fonts
e.g. "A:\" or "C:\TEMP"
single click the "Add" button
a list of filenames will appear under "Font Files"
to select fonts for installation, click one or more filenames
the corresponding font names will appear
click again to deselect unwanted fonts
single-click the "Add" button to install selected fonts
close the "Edit Font" window
close the "Font Palette" window
end

MAC SYSTEM 7 & TRUETYPE

To install Truetype fonts into MacIntosh System 7 (or newer), locate and
identify the Truetype font files, indicated by a suitcase icon with a
filename ending in "TT", then drag them into the System folder. System 7
will respond, asking for permission to move the font files into the
System Font sub-folder. Select the "OK" button. The new fonts will not
be available to currently running applications until they have been quit
and re-launched.

MAC SYSTEM 7 & POSTSCRIPT

Adobe Type Manager (ATM) for MacIntosh is an alternative to the Truetype
font rasterizer that is provided with System 7. Older versions of ATM
also work with System 6. ATM uses Postscript Type1 fonts rather than
Truetype fonts.

To install Postscript fonts for use with ATM, locate and identify
the screen font files (indicated by a suitcase icon with a filename
ending in "screen") and the Postscript Type 1 files (icon shows a
printer and the numeral "1"). Drag these files into the System folder.
The operating system (Finder) will respond, asking for permission to
move the font files into the System Font sub-folder. Select the "OK"
button. The new fonts will not be available to currently running
applications until they have been quit and re-launched.

MAC SYSTEM 6 & TRUETYPE

Truetype fonts can be used with later versions of System 6. The follow-
ing software is required: System 6.0.6 or newer, the Truetype INIT, and
the Font D/A Mover 4.1 or newer. These were formerly available free of
charge from Apple.

Using Font D/A Mover, install the entire contents of the Truetype font
suitcases. These contain 1 or more Truetype font outlines, and optional-
ly may contain 1 or more hand-tuned screen fonts.

MAC SYSTEM 6 & POSTSCRIPT

Adobe Type Manager (ATM) for MacIntosh is an alternative to the Truetype
font rasterizer. Older versions of ATM will work with System 6. ATM uses
Postscript Type1 fonts rather than Truetype fonts. The Font D/A Mover is
required. This was formerly available free of charge from Apple.

To install Postscript fonts for use with ATM, first locate and identify
the screen font files (indicated by a suitcase icon with a filename
ending in "screen") and the Postscript Type 1 files (icon shows a
printer and the numeral "1").

Using Font D/A Mover, install the contents of the screen font suit-
case(s). Then, drag the Type1 font file(s) into the System Folder. The
new fonts will not be available to currently running applications until
they have been quit and re-launched.
