One of my favourite fonts in Panorama 6 is Helvetica Narrow. It is an original TrueType 1.0 font and it is a good looking, legible condensed sans perfect for putting a lot of text on each line of a report. Very nice in larger sizes too. But it is old, from 1991, and I worry about compatibility in the future.
Now I’m converting forms in PX I’ve tried changing it to Helvetica Condensed, which, it turns out, I don’t like it nearly as much, something about the character shape and the darker look on the screen and page in small sizes. It’s a PostScript Type 1 font but I see it’s also pretty old, most recently from 1997, it appears.
I’ve tried to find info on Google, but without much success. Can anyone advise whether we should trust TrueType 1.0 fonts to be continue to be supported, or whether it’s especially risky?
