I have a Turkish Windows installation and want to use all those Turkish ttf fonts on my Amiga. Is there an easy way for this? I remember using them on my real Amiga years ago. But I forgot how

Well, I was trying to install Czech and Slovak truetype fonts with no success. But you might have more luck with Turkish fonts. To install new truetype fonts into system, use AmiKit:Prefs/TrueType_FontManager. Load some Turkish truetype font. Also you have to add Turkish codepage file. Then try to use newly created font with AmiKit:Prefs/Fonts program.

How do I add Turkish iso 8859 and windows 1254 codepade , charset to Amikit and also make AWeb, IBrowse use them?

I installed latest version of charset.library but I'm a bit clueless right now.

Can I simply replace the fonts inside Amikit:Fonts/Truetype with the ones from my Windoz7 installation? There are many truetype fonts there and Turkish characters are working here although Windoz7 is an English one.

Yes, install your Turkish fonts there. Then you need to configure several AmiKit programs to use them. Eg. AmiKit:Prefs/Fonts, AfA_OS. AWeb and IBrowse have their own font settings too, look into its preferences.

I finally got around to understand how to convert fonts to any language. Now I need to figure out how to convert the following fonts into Turkish but I do not know which ttf fonts to use to create these fonts.

AFA Amikit
AFA Amikit Mono
AFA Amikit Serif

and the Bold, italic, etc versions of it.

I can not find these fonts inside Fonts:_Truetype drawer.

Also what is the difference between TrueType_FontManager and TTEManager?

I also see a TTF_Manager and it's the same file as TrueType_FontManager.

There also used to be a ttfmanager that came with http://aminet.net/search?query=ttflib68 . But it's not inside Amikit installation.

I have found the fonts. Their name shows up inside truetype fonts manager.

What sizes do I need to create to make the fonts same as default amikit XE insallation?

Hi Ancalimon,

I am afraid that TrueType fonts is one of the topic I completely forgot about once I set it up correctly, you know. Either check Google or experiment on your own like I did more than 10 years ago ;) fingers crossed!

I have a problem with the SYS:Prefs/Font.

I can see all AfA Amikit fonts except the Afa Amikit.font which is the default Screen and Workbench icon font. Why doesn't font preferences show this font? Is this a bug with Font Preferences?

I can see
Afa Amikit-EU
Afa Amikit-PL
Afa Amikit-RU

But no
Afa Amikit
