Documentation for Heidelbe. A shareware PostScript font.
Version 3.0 - Type 1 Hinted for Windows


Please use this typeface at your own risk. Though it has been
thoroughly tested with PageMaker,Notepad, and Write,
neither Steve Shubitz nor Published Perfection! is
responsible for any adverse actions which might occur through the
use of Heidelbe. Permission is hereby granted to Compuserve to post
this on their system for downloading by subscribers. (C) 1989

You should copy Heidelbe.PFM and Heidelbe.PFB files to a \PSFONTS
directory or use the PageMaker convention of putting your .PFB files in
a \PSFONTS directory and your .PFM files in a \PSFONTS\PFM directory. It
is not necessary to store all your .PFM and .PFB files in the same
directory as long as the entries in the WIN.INI file point to them (see
below for how to do this). Next, make a backup copy of your WIN.INI
file. Open your WIN.INI file and make the following entries for your new
PostScript font. The example below shows a theoretical section
from the WIN.INI that contains fonts you do not have but we show them
for the example's sake.


In this example the Postscript printer is connected to LPT1 so we have
to change the [PostScript,LPT1] part of our WIN.INI. Note that the two
changes you have to make are:

1. Increment the number in the softfonts=xx by as many fonts as you are

2. Add a new line for each font which starts with:


where the x stands for the next higher number in the list and the C:
stands for the hard disk designator for the drive you have copied your
PostScript fonts to, while \psfonts\ stands for the name of the
directory you copied your PostScript font files to.

If you deal with a service bureau and need to send them files printed
to your hard disk, you should also have your PostScript printer
configured to the FILE port. In this case you will also have to
manually copy and paste your new .PFB and .PFM entries to the FILE
port entry in your WIN.INI:


Note that in the above examples Unicorn and Heidelbe are automatically
downloaded to your PostScript printer by Windows, then at the
conclusion of the print job they are flushed from memory. In the case
of Gothic, you must permanently download this font to your PostScript
printer BEFORE you can use it because there is no .PFB in the softfont
entry. PCSEND or LaserTools DOWNLOAD can do this for you. You should
permanently download Gothic before you launch Windows. Users of
LaserTools' PrintCache should manually install a printer port in their
WIN.INI file called LPT1.PRN, then print using this port. They must
have all their PostScript fonts installed under this section:


If you change printer ports on your computer you will have to manually
edit your WIN.INI file to reflect the proper entries. The present
version of Windows will not immediately recognize the above manual
edits to your WIN.INI file if you complete them while Windows is
running, even if you do this from a DOS session under Windows. If you
do these edits of your WIN.INI file while Windows is running you will
have to close Windows and re-launch it for the changes to take effect.
After Heidelbe is properly installed you may wish to open and print charset.pm3
with PageMaker. This one page publication shows you the mapping
and should be retained for future reference.

Printing to disk in PageMaker

There may be occasions when you wish to produce a quasi EPS file that
can be placed in PageMaker by printing to disk. For this situation
your printer must be configured for LPT1 or COM1 or LPT1.PRN. Next,
all your PostScript font entries must be correctly installed. Once
these conditions have been met, you can use the Windows Control Panel
to gain access to the printer options and turn on the EPS option. The
resultant file can be placed in PageMaker. This trick may be used in
Word for Windows to create tables with rules, then successfully place
these in PageMaker, thereby circumventing the limitations of the WFW
RTF export function. Using PageMaker and this procedure you can
condense, expand, distort, or create mini pages or thumbnails for use
in your DTP projects. You should NEVER use this feature to create
print-to-disk files for your service bureau because some of your crop
marks,registration marks, and page numbers will not print. This is
most apparent if you specify letter extra, legal extra, or tabloid
extra paper sizes.

PageMaker - Corel Draw - Word for Windows Notes

If you change printer ports in Windows from, say LPT1 to LPT1.PRN, you
must first launch PageMaker and BEFORE you open a publication and
while the Aldus logo is displayed, tell PageMaker your new printer and
port by selecting the File menu and then the Printer setup item. After
you do this, close PageMaker and then launch it again. Only now will
your new printer and port be recognized. Screen fonts (.FON files) are
not necessary to properly use any PostScript font with Windows. If
your original PageMaker file was composed for LPT1 and you wish to
send this file to your service bureau via a print-to-disk file, follow
this procedure: Proof at 300 DPI via LPT1 in this example. Close the
publication. Load the Control Panel-Printer option and leave it
running. Then configure your printer to the FILE port . In some cases
you should configure the Lino 300 for your FILE port (letter
extra,tabloid extra,legal extra) where your job needs crops and or
registration marks. Once you complete this procedure open your
PageMaker publication. DO NOT recompose, just print it. Just after you
start the printing a dialog box will pop up and ask for the path and
file name for your print-to-disk file. After this is completed, go
back to the driver and change the port back to LPT1 or whatever it was
before. Use this same procedure with CorelDraw and you'll never have
to edit your print-to-disk files when a service bureau is using a
Macintosh as a front end.

Word for Windows users who change printer ports (LPT1 to LPT2 as an
example) must launch Word for Windows, select the File menu option,
then "Printer Setup," then select the new printer and port. Once
you do this, Word will properly recognize all the fonts installed for
this printer/port.

ATM 1.0/1.1 and Windows 3.0 Notes

When you install new fonts under ATM, it DOES NOT recognize LPT1.PRN
(the printer that you'll use with PrintCache). If you are using
PrintCache, you must copy and paste all your .PFM and .PFB entries to
the LPT1.PRN section of your WIN.INI file when you install new fonts
under ATM. You should, however, NOT remove the .PFM entries from your
FILE port and this includes the ROM resident 35 .PFMs that are entered
in this section when you install Adobe's Plus Pack.

The Adobe documentation is somewhat misleading on the maximum number
of fonts that Windows 3.0 can support. The maximum number of
PostScript fonts that Windows 3.0 supports is around 400 BUT this
number includes .FON files as well as double entries under the LPT1
and FILE port sections, for example. Further, the size of your WIN.INI
affects this breaking point: around 60K is the maximum. When you reach
these limits some fonts specified will not print, applications may
crash, and the reliable operation of Windows is compromised. The
solution is multiple WIN.INI files which you'll rename appropriately
before Windows is launched which contain sets of fonts. If you use ATM
all the time and never wish to disable it you should manually remove
all the .FON entries under the (fonts) section of your WIN.INI file
which refer to softfonts. When you complete this, your (fonts) section
will look like this:

Modern (All res)=MODERN.FON
Script (All res)=SCRIPT.FON
Roman (All res)=ROMAN.FON
Symbol 8,10,12,14,18,24 (VGA res)=SYMBOLE.FON
Tms Rmn 8,10,12,14,18,24 (VGA res)=TMSRE.FON
Courier 10,12,15 (VGA res)=COURE.FON
Helv 8,10,12,14,18,24 (VGA res)=HELVE.FON


Just tell WFNBOSS where Heidelbe.afm and Heidelbe.pfb are
located and that it is an Adobe Type 1 conversion. Corel
uses its own mapping for the extended character set so
please spec Heidelbe with charset.cdr to determine what
characters you have.


You can force Windows 3.0 to read your newly edited
win.ini by opening the control panel and double clicking on
the printers icon and selecting OK at the next screen. You
can also write a batch file with copy win.bu win.ini which
accomplishes the same thing. These actions eliminate
the need to exit and restart Windows. All you applications
should be closed down before you do this.


Heidelbe was designed by Bill Horton of Santa Barbara CA. Bill has
been working with type for over 20 years and is very talented. The
name was shortened for DOS. Bill shares in the Shareware income
and has provided us with exclusive rights to distribute and
convert Heidelbe for the DOS platform. To view his work in
Fontographer is a joy. I have also set Heidelbe as a masthead for
a newspaper and used it with restraint for enlarged caps. It is a
splendid face for certificates and awards which looks it's best at
2540 DPI. What follows are Bill's own words:

In what might be called an evolutionary process, here is the font
Heidelberg 89. It is what I consider to be a refinement to
MacHumaine, though it is conceivable others may prefer the
previous version.

It is my feeling that Heidelberg is more truly a calligraphic
style font than MacHumaine, with its more severe strokes and
sharper angles. I have used it for certificates commercially and
have had good comments only. I know there is a school of thought
which believes it is improper to create a font that simulates
actual pen or quill hand writing.


If Heidelbe is output at higher resolutions than 300 DPI I would
appreciate a sample. Knowing that Heidelbe is a well behaved font I
have received unconfirmed reports that Heidelbe is being used with
other applications that run from DOS.Please give me specifics in this
area Your thoughts are always welcome for future fine tuning.


If you find Heidelbe of use and wish to help insure the development
of future low cost high quality PostScript typefaces please send
$20.00 along with your name and address indicating weather you
wish to register the MAC or PC version to:

Steve Shubitz
Published Perfection!
7486 La Jolla Blvd. Suite 552
La Jolla CA. 92037
(619) 546-9309
CIS # 72047,3402

If you use Heidelbe and don't register it you won't help me much and
certainly won't receive upgrades or future releases of other
typefaces for Shareware evaluation.


Support is available by phone or via CIS. I am available for large
Electronic Publishing jobs as well as Consulting using Windows. If
you desire a custom typeface or conversion of Type 3 Fontographer
faces from the MAC to the PC please contact me for specific
quotes. It is the humble opinion of yours truly that Heidelbe is
equal to or exceeds any Type 1 PostScript typeface available
today. Many have suggested that I sell the face in the retail
market like most other vendors and only release a "crippled"
version for Shareware Evaluation. That's a subtle hint that I need
YOUR support for continued success. If Shareware works then that's
the way all future typefaces will be released and that is my
preferred method at the present time. We currently have 12 more
PostScript typefaces under development.
