I have a year's worth of training of customers who have been
trained to use the default font for candidate name text, many of whom use four
column ballots. But, I'm a flexible guy, I'm willing to compromise.
Can we set one default for races and headers (Arial) and another for candidates
and endorsements (Arial Narrow)?
You know I'm doing this just to torment you, Ken.
Can the default font in Gems for all text (candidates,
races, headers, endorsements) be set to Arial and Bold instead of Arial
Narrow - No client I know of uses Arieal Narrow so we always have
to change it .
I am of
two minds on this. I think using Arial Narrow has
sometimes caused grief when generating postscript for some print
shops. It is not a standard font. For this reason alone changing
it to the standard Arial is probably a good idea.
It is a
really great font to use for candidate names though. You get away
without wrapped candidate text a lot more with this font.
Changing to narrow after you discover you have one annoying candidate name
is a big pain with GEMS also.
change it if there are no objections, but then people using 4 column artwork
should be made aware of the change. Be prepared to change it back to
narrow to handle names that encode a candidate's entire family
