Replacement/Alternative to Arial Unicode MS Font

Filed under: Uncategorized — himanshumistry @ 6:52 પી એમ(pm)

Arial Unicode MS has been stopped/removed from MS Office Suite that made me searching for another FREE alternative for it.

I found below article : https://library.osu.edu/site/it/a-free-unicode-replacement-font-to-ms-arial-unicode/

Google sponsored the development of an open Unicode font, the Noto Font family.

NO more Tofu is NOTO Font family.. Free for all languages (and for everyone) visit here and download for the language you want. https://www.google.com/get/noto/

શું થયુ Arial Unicode MS નું? ક્યાં ગયો આ ફૉન્ટ ?

Filed under: Uncategorized — himanshumistry @ 6:35 પી એમ(pm)

ગુજરાતી તેમજ દેવનાગરી લિપિના એરિયલ યુનિકોડ એમએસ ફૉન્ટના (glyphs) વળાંકો મને બહુ ગમે.

ઘણાં વખતે એક હિન્દી વાર્તાને Arial Unicode MS ફૉન્ટમાં ફેરવી જોવાનો પ્રયત્ન કર્યો.

ફૉન્ટનાં લિસ્ટમાં તે ન દેખાતાં, ઓફિસ ને રીપેઅર કરવાનો પ્રયત્ન કર્યો, જેથી ઈન્સ્ટોલર ના ઑપ્શન્સમાંથી હું Arial MS Unicode સિલેક્ટ કરી શકું.

મારા આશ્ચર્યની વચ્ચે, તે મને જોવા ન મળ્યા…

ઈન્ટરનેટની ઉપર ખાંખાં–ખોળા કરતાં મને નીચે લિન્ક ઉપર આપેલ લેખ વાંચવા મળ્યો.

મને Mr. Raymond Chen ની આ સમજૂતી આપવાની શૈલી ગમી..

અંગ્રેજી ભાષામાં તેમનો લેખ અહીં વાંચી શકો  ..

What happened to the – All In One – Arial Unicode MS font?

Filed under: Uncategorized — himanshumistry @ 6:17 પી એમ(pm)

After a long time I tried setting the font “Arial Unicode MS” to a part of text as I used to love the glyphs (curves).

As I could not see it, I tried “repairing” MS Office in order to select Arial Unicode MS to get installed.  To my wonder I didn’t find it in the intaller options.

This made me to search what happened to my favourit All In One font..

I relly liked the way Mr. Raymond Chen has illustrated why it was removed from the MS Office (installer)
