Times New Roman




16 point





If you would like to set up a substitute for a range of fonts, deselect the check-box(es) of corresponding attribute(s). The Number of matched fonts shows how many of the fonts in the current document will be affected by the substitution. You may notice that this number increases as more of the fonts in the document conform to the criterion. For example, if just a size of 8 point were specified, then the substitute font would be used for any 8-point font in the document.
