How to add plain text font in IE9/10?

Hi all,

I wanna ask how to add other plain text fonts other than the default choices in IE9/10 "Appearance" option, any way to go? Thanks in advance.

Hello tkrojam,

The fonts available for IE9/10 "Appearance" option use the same fonts that are included by default and installed for Windows. Installing a plain text .ttc font you like, will have it added to the list.

Fonts - Install

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Shawn, Thanks for your reply.

I am 100% sure the font I want to be included in "Plain text font" as below was installed by default. I can choose it from "Webpage font" but it was not shown in "Plain text font". I mean font choice from both lists is not the same...

That's correct. Both lists will have different fonts listed since they are different font types in each list.

What's the name of the font you wanted to use in both lists?

The "Plain text font" list contain fonts that have Text in the Category details for it in the C:\Windows\Fonts folder. Of course, Text stands for a plain text font.

You can see from my screenshot that the no. of font in "Webpage font" is far more than in "Plain text font", the font I want only appears in the LHS but not RHS and I found it in the C:\Windows\Fonts folder. However, it does not appear in "Plain text font"

That is correct. There are more "Webpage fonts" than "Plain text fonts" in the C:\Windows\Fonts folder.

Does the font you want and found in your C:\Windows\Fonts folder have "Text" in it's Category details? If not, then it's not a "Plain text font" and will not show up in the RHS. Only fonts that have "Text" in it's Category details will show up in the RHS.

Plain text font is monotype, fixed width. It will not show non-monotype fonts.
