Times New Roman

Is it possible to determine the year this Times New Roman font was available?

Hi everyone!
I have a somewhat unusual request on behalf of a friend.
There is a court case where one side claims that a document was printed year 2005 and the other side claims that it was year 2016.
The font used is Times New Roman, I think.
Is it possible to look at the font used and determine if this particular version of Times New Roman was / was not available in year 2005? I assume that most fonts are updated continuously behind the scenes, minor tweaks and such.
See attached image, a higher-res version with more text is available as well.

Favourite Microsoft system fonts


Hello everyone, I'm new here at Typophile.

Microsoft products (MS Windows & MS Office) come with a variety of serif fonts. If you were limited to use Microsoft serif fonts only (for printed text), which would be your favourites to use?

I like Century Schoolbook, Goudy Old Style and Book Antiqua (Palatino Linotype has a wider line spacing by default).

Thank you.

Soft hyphen puzzle in Times New Roman


Hello everyone!

I have the following text layout problem in InDesign CS6 and CC for Mac. Text is typed with Times New Roman. Some vowels have stresses placed with the symbol Combining Acute Accent (Unicode 0301). This is the common character for the stress in Cyrillic texts. When I choose to automatically hyphenate text the hyphen shifts down if it appears after the stressed letter. This happens when you select the Hunspell hyphenation dictionary and text is marked as Russian. Everything works perfect with English text.
So the question is: What is the cause of the problem, is it in the Adobe software or in the font? What could be changed in TNR to make it work properly?



University logo - serif

I am trying to find out what font this is! (obviously)

I've attached the full logo and a close up of "university" for extra reference. I know that some of the letters such as the 'R' in Washburn have been altered. I am wondering if this font was specially designed for the logo? I can't find it anywhere.

Thanks in advance!

ID: Times New Roman like Font, different C and E

Trying to identify this typeface. Originally considered it as a possibility for Times New Roman, but the "E" and "C" are distinctly different. The rest of the letters are so close to Times New Roman though, so I was wondering if it's possibly a variant of.

Sign is from some outlet store at a mall.
Thank you fo any help you can give!

Times New Roman : A Little Booklet About

Hello Typophiles !

Im currently studying graphic design in an art college, and part of my final submission task is to produce a little font booklet that would most accurately inform the reader/viewer about the font that you have been chosen to represent. I've been tasked with Times New Roman, be it luck or tragedy.

Personally i've found Times New Roman to be somewhat a difficult font to place/display in a booklet artistically & aesthetically pleasing ( although its known so ubiquitously as a book font ) .

I've decided to divide the book into a few sections, as follows : Introduction ( 2 pages ), About the font ( 4 pages ), Variations [ bold, italics, etc ] ( 4 pages), Typographic posters ( 4 pages ) and lastly credits.

Reverse Type ID Help.

Hi Everyone,

I'm brand new to typography and just starting my first typography 1 course; one of our assignments is to find print examples of typefaces from a list composed by my instructor. I've found nearly all of them (14/18) but I'm having trouble finding these last 4. I just bought the latest editions of In Style, Details, Cosmopolitan, and Glamour to try and find adverts with these typefaces but I'm not really having any luck training my eye up. I've spent the last two days combing through newspaper adverts, yellow pages adverts, and these magazines and it hasn't jumped out at me. So here are the typefaces I'm looking for:

Times New Roman

and I could do with a better example of Eurostile but it isn't necessary... Thanks to anyone that could help me out.

Realist (serif), Baroque or/and Scotch?

hi Everyone,

I created several web-font stacks based on different styles: neo-grotesk (realist sans-serif); geometric; humanist body; humanist display; renaissance; neoclassic; baroque; romantic; and monospace. I am still puzzling with Georgia.

Georgia is a wonderful web-font for display and book, but I cannot classify it perfectly. Do you believe it is a realist serif, baroque typeface, or...?

Also, do you think Century Schoolbook is a good Georgia-alternative for web-body or/and display?
Is Century Schoolbook not somewhat different in style?

Thank you for you reactions.
