Arial Narrow

Postby Blindc1rca » Fri Nov 05, 2010 2:54 pm

Anyone else using this font? Think it's a problem on apps that don't specify font?

Apologies for any redundancy.

I am using Garamond 11 pt for most of mine unless they specify otherwise

I think its UCLA that wants 12 times new roman - I actually called a couple of schools and asked about this and their response was basically "dont use anything crazy - make sure its readable - if its readable we dont really care"

I'm well arial narrow is rather... narrow. Make sure it is at least size 12. You might be able to use times roman or somthing else at size 11 instead and have it be more readable.

Arial is a sanserif font, which is non-standard for paragraphs of solid text on paper. Use a serif font like Times New Roman or Garamond (slightly narrower than TNR).

And Arial Narrow is just a terrible idea. Why not just submit it in Comic Sans while you're at it?
