No Italics

Recommended Posts

I can't use Italics in my new Stage Play. Bold and Underline are in bold and can be used. But Italic is in Gray and can't be used. When I hit the gray Italic I hear a horn sound.

Suggestions please.

Thanks.

David

I assume you're talking about Italic choice within the font--like Helvetica rather than Helvetica.

I was using Lucinda Grande and there is no Italic font.

I checked back to Helvetica and it does NOT have a Italic listed either, but hitting the I Key changes it into Italics.

I can change font to one that I can use Italic.

Just thought it strange that some fonts don't have that option.

Thanks for your help.

Hi David,

 

The Helvetica family has a typeface named "Oblique," which is an italic typeface.

 

And yes, you'd think that modern font families would have italic typefaces. Geneva, for example, has neither italic nor bold.
