How to determine a Truetype Filename
2003-11-30 10:26:16 PM
I need to be able to determine the filename of a chosen TrueType font.
Problem is, there appear to be multiple versions of the names in the
For example, in a font selection list, I might see the name
"Futura MdCn BT" For Futura Medium, Condensed.
In the key: HLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts
I will see a name like "Futura MdCn-Italic BT (TrueType)" with an
accompanying value of the desired .TTF filename. This name is
sufficiently dissimilar that I cannot easily derive it from the former
name that I saw in the user-font-selection-list.
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
