Font characteristics

The Font characteristics group consists of a set of check boxes, which can have the following states:

  • Tick — the characteristic is enabled;

  • Cross — the characteristic is disabled;

  • Blank — the characteristic is inherited unchanged from the current context.

The following sections explain the effect of each characteristic in detail. Note that most characteristics can be combined, so that enabling both bold and small for example will give a small bold font. Specific mention will be made when a characteristic is incompatible with another.
