Fonts?
Book Printing

Thanks Tony,

I appreciate the response.  Makes sense, but I kind of wonder why when Blurb told me the fonts embed when it gets ready to print, Blurb failed to mention it happens on my computer.  I think I wil ask Blurb.

Thanks again, Brian

Fonts?

It wasn’t my intention to post twice.  I tried to figure out how to delete one of them but could not.  I understand your point and feel like I need to sit in the corner with a dunce hat.   With that said, I am I have contacted Blurb and wanted to hear a real user experience response.  I am on a Mac using Leopard.

 

My apologies for posting twice – and I completely understand it is difficult for other participants or myself to participate to help you. With only ONE post for whatever situation, it is easier FOR all participants to participate IN one forum discussion that way than two. It is like going through telephone tags back forth accomplished with little success.

Fonts?
Book Printing

I am finishing my book and am getting ready to upload.  I noticed the fonts on my computer show up in the Booksmart software.  Does anybody know if I use some obscure font on my machine will it look just fine when printed or does it default to something similiar?  Basically, how do I make sure the fonts I use on my computer which look a distinct way,  will look the same once the book is published?

I have the feeling I have some fonts that Blurb does not have.
