These fonts are available only to documents that already use the font, or to apps that request the font by name. Some are older fonts that were included with earlier versions of macOS or Apple apps.

You can use Font Book to install and remove fonts, validate and resolve duplicate fonts, and restore the standard fonts that came with macOS Ventura. For more information about Font Book, choose Font Book Help from the Help menu in Font Book.

Punjabi distinguishes two genders, two numbers, and five cases of direct, oblique, vocative, ablative, and locative/instrumental. The ablative occurs only in the singular, in free variation with oblique case plus ablative postposition, and the locative/instrumental is usually confined to set adverbial expressions.[58]

Gurmukhi evolved in cultural and historical circumstances notably different from other regional scripts,[14] for the purpose of recording scriptures of Sikhism, a far less Sanskritized cultural tradition than others of the subcontinent.[14] This independence from the Sanskritic model allowed it the freedom to evolve unique orthographical features.[14] These include:

The visarga symbol ( U+0A03) is used very occasionally in Gurmukhī. It can represent an abbreviation, as the period is used in English, though the period for abbreviation, like commas, exclamation points, and other Western punctuation, is freely used in modern Gurmukhī.[58][31]

He then contacted me, early in 2013, suggesting that I should consider making a font of the lettering - he had managed to photograph almost all of the letters and so the process of turning it into a font began and here is the result.

The process of making a font is not as simple as copying a set of letters, it is far more involved than that. First of all, you need to define a set of rules such as the positions of horizontal lines, the widths of lines, radius of curvature, how certain features repeat themselves or versions of themselves between letters and you have to make up any shortfall of letters supplied and modify any of the letters so that they fit the rules. Then you have to do some programming to make it work in various contexts (such as which version of an adhak to use under certain circumstances, for instance), then you have to test it as exhaustively as you can and finally, produce any images and other information that will make choosing it and using it a better experience for the person whose computer it is going to end up on.

GHP Full is a Gurmukhi display font that covers both the UniCode Gurmukhi range and also places Gurmukhi characters in the ASCII range so it is compatible with systems or programs that are not quite as advanced as those that are able to use UniCode.

For those who don't know, the Punjabi word for 'flower' is 'Full' - hence this font's overall style - that of decorative, hand-painted semi-permanent signs such as those you might find for shops or outside buildings advertising regular or important events.

In addition to the style of the font - which stands up as well without any extras - there are two other components to it: a drop shadow (two variants) that has more to it than just the basic type you can make with your image editor; and, a small border (again, two variants) which you can use to help to define the edge of characters when you are using certain colour combinations of shadow and character.

Here, you can see how characters are built up: first of all, you input your text, then you select the body text font; next, you copy that and change it to one of the outline fonts so as to form a border; finally, you add the shadow of your choice by copying the text and changing the font to the shadow font.

So, which outline layer to choose? If you are going to make your text fairly small, you will need to increase the outline's visibility by choosing the 'outline 2' font, otherwise you can use the 'outline' font or the 'outline 2' font according to your taste.

Again, the GHP Full variant goes to a point that all but disappears at smaller point sizes so if you are using this font to make a smaller image, you might want to use the Demi-Bold variant for the body text part of the characters - it might be that you decide that the smaller one looks best - that is your choice.

The ASCII part of the font has two variants of the adhak so you can choose whichever you like depending upon the space available. However, the Unicode part of the font will do this automatically for you so there is no need to worry about that.

Also, bindis next to biharis and so on will change as well - this is done automatically by the font if your editor conforms to the specifications - the free image editor 'The Gimp' does this automatically.

Have you got the latest version of one of these fonts? If you have just downloaded it from this site, you have. Otherwise, you can check any font file by comparing the hash function results of the file on your computer with the values in the list by clicking here for text file and here for a web page - opens in a new tab. Select the font file on your system and look at the properties. Compare the hash result against the values in the table. These pages are kept up-to-date so whenever I update a font or create a new one, it will be on there.

You can download all of the fonts from all of the font families on this site in one compressed archive by clicking here for a ZIP file or here for a TAR.GZ file You have the freedom to use these fonts for personal or commercial use although you are forbidden to: charge for them; or, modify and distribute the modified font. If you want something different or even completely new for a specific purpose, email me - see below. I allow you to use my fonts for free because I believe that morally, everybody should have equal access, regardless of availability of resources - In this way, those who genuinely have not got the money to pay a license fee for a font use can continue to access this resource for free. If I insisted on charging for them for private/non-commercial use then you would be looking at anything from around 50 for a single user. If you are using the fonts for business purposes, you are not facing bankruptcy and your business model includes paying those that have produced resources that you are using, then you might want to consider making a contribution towards the time, artistic and technological investment that I have made in these fonts as well as the ongoing costs of running and maintaining a production server 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To give you an idea of what the commercial use charges are: the charge for a book is GBP100; and, for a single multinational film production, GBP1,000. Websites are free.

Since updating to Mavericks, I've had some issues with the system fonts. Most notably, I seem to be missing some variation of Helvetica. The system seems to replace with a similar font (maybe Lucida Grande?) so it's not much of a nuisance but I want to fix it. Here's Numbers giving an error because of it:

You are missing the files Helvetica.dfont and HelveticaNeue.dfont which are the correct files for the missing fonts. They should be in /System/Library/Fonts. Have a good look at the support page you point to and you will see those two files listed against the fonts.

You do have two files, Helvetica.ttc and HelveticaNeue.ttc, which are not included in a standard Mavericks install but they are not where the System is expecting to find the two fonts.

In the long term grab a copy of the two missing files from another Mac running 10.8 or 10.9 and put them into /System/Library/Fonts. You will have to do this by hand since Font Book will only install fonts in either /Library/Fonts or /Library/Fonts.

Then highlight the font in the font list and select File > Validate Font and the font will be checked. This is quite a swift process so I usually check them all. A dialog will open that lists all the fonts and shows you the ones that may have a problem. The most common (and easily ignored) warning is that you have a duplicate font but if you have a duplicate of one you are having a problem with I'd remove the 'User' version.

I'm not an expert myself, but here some pointers. As far as I understood from Wikipedia, the problem is very likely to be your font. Apologies in advance for the long quotes, but else I could have just linked the 2 Wikipedia articles.

As of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, partial support for OpenType is available. The support is currently limited to Western scripts and Arabic (as of 2011). If a font has AAT tables, they will be used for typography. If the font does not have AAT tables but does have OpenType tables, they will be used to the extent that the system supports them.

This means that many OpenType fonts for Western or Middle Eastern scripts can be used without modification on Mac OS X 10.5, but South Asian scripts such as Thai and Devanagari cannot. These require AAT tables for proper layout.

Since AAT operates entirely with glyphs and never with characters, all the layout information necessary for producing the proper display resides within the font itself. This allows fonts to be added for new scripts without requiring any specific support from the OS.

For Indic scripts, the only features that are necessary are glyph re-ordering and substitution. AAT supports both of these. As noted above, OpenType fonts for Indic scripts require AAT tables to be added before they will function properly on Mac OS X. Note, however, that this applies only to software dependent upon the system support of OpenType. Programs which provide their own implementation of OpenType will render Indic properly with OpenType fonts. (They may, however, not render Indic fonts with AAT tables correctly.)
