Suggestion: Fonts and Styles

Post by pablocampis » Fri Oct 27, 2017 5:10 pm


I would like to give a recommendation for TextMaker.

When Office 2007 was introduced, Microsoft changed Times New Roman as the default font for documents to Calibri. This change brought a refreshing look to documents. Libreoffice uses Liberation Serif; but TextMaker still uses TNR. My suggestion is to include some new fonts into the Suite (30 from the 10,000+ that you already have :D) and change the default font to one of yours.

This could help you also promote your fonts and improve the overall look of standar documents.

For compatibility purposes, you can add font "Themes", that could be like this:
- Classic. Using TNR and Arial for headings
- Modern. Using one of your serif fonts for thext and sans serif for headings
- Handwriting. Using a a couple fonts from your handwriting package
- Script. Using a couple fonts from your script package
- Artistic. Art Nouveau.

The fonts for these themes could be part of the 30 fonts that you could add to the suite.

Thank you
