send to uses helvetica

Hi everybody.

Wondered if someone seen this behavior:

although Arial is our Standardfont (Word, Excel, Groupwise...) and it is set in layouts in Groupwise:

everytime i send from office via send to email the groupwise mail ist generated with helvetica as font.

did i miss something. i searched registry for helvetica but found no connection to groupwise.

we use: gwclient 12.0.2

regards franz

Well, some obvious things first: Windows doesn't ship with Helvetica as
Font (Arial *is* Windows' Helvetica, it just has a different name for
coypright reasons)), so where does Helvetica Font even come from on your
systems? It isn't unlikely that whatever has installed it also made it
some default somewhere, somehow.

As Windows usually desn't even have Helvetica, it's not too surprising
nobody has seen your issue.

Re: Antw: send to uses helvetica

Hi,

Further to what Massimo has said about the font, typically if you use the "send to" feature of Microsoft Word or Excel the font will default to New Times Roman, ignoring whatever you have set in GroupWise. This is a bug in the GroupWise client (Bug 796126).

Cheers,

Re: Antw: send to uses helvetica

Thanks Massimo for your reply.

I just checked and saw my fault. send to always uses Times New Roman. (We used Helvetica as CI font so i just mistook it)

searched now for times new roman but again found no link to GroupWise.

ca you give me hints were to look in GroupWise and how to change this behaviour.

sen to -> arial?

regards franz

As per Laura, see Bug 796126

Basically it is currently broken in GroupWise 2012 where as it had been
working before. So there really isn't a place to go looking for it.

If formating of outbound messages is really important, perhaps sending
at PDFs might be the way to go as that is really the only way to be sure
that presentation is how you want it to be.
