Font settings for Quick Spec pages

Internet browsers handle fonts differently.  Most Windows-based browsers should display the Quick Spec pages correctly with no changes.  If the pages don't appear correctly, try the instructions below for Netscape Navigator, Netscape Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Opera Software's Opera browser.

If you are using UNIX, LINUX, Macintosh or other non-Windows environments, our specs are available in a format which does not depend on special fonts.  On the previous page, you will find a link which refers to a page with "linedraw characters approximated by text."  This link (right below the link which lead you to this page) will take you to a version of the spec which will be readable on your system.

In your Netscape Navigator browser, you may need to set your fixed font default to "MS LineDraw." Follow these instructions:

  1. Click on the Options menu, General Preferences.
  2. Select the Fonts tab.
  3. Click on the second "Choose Font" button to set your default Fixed Font.
  4. Find "MS LineDraw" in the list and click on it.
  5. Click on OK to close the font dialog, then OK to close the Options dialog.
  6. Click your browser's Back button to return to the previous page; you should see the drawings correctly.

If you are using a Netscape Communicator browser version 4.0 or higher and have dynamic fonts enabled, you should see the drawings correctly.  To enable dynamic fonts, take the following steps.  If you do not wish to enable dynamic fonts, you may need to install a new font and set it as your default fixed-width font per the second set of instructions below.

Using Netscape Communicator with dynamic fonts:

  1. In the Netscape browser, click on the Edit menu, Preferences.
  2. Open the Appearances tree (if a plus-sign (+) appears to the left of Appearances, click once on it).
  3. Select the Fonts branch under Appearances.
  4. Select the third of the three radio buttons--the one which reads "Use document-specified fonts, including dynamic fonts."
  5. Click OK to close the Preferences dialog.
  6. Click your browser's Back button to return to the previous page.  Your browser will get the appropriate fonts from our server.   You may need to Reload the page to see the drawings correctly.

Using Netscape Communicator without dynamic fonts:

  1. If your system supports TrueType fonts, download Seagate's "Letter Gothic Line" TrueType font from ftp://ftp.seagate.com/techsuppt/letgothl.ttf (or a zipped version from ftp://ftp.seagate.com/techsuppt/letgothl.zip).
  2. In Windows 95, copy the (unzipped) file to your \windows\fonts folder.  In Windows 3.1, see the instructions below for installing the font.
  3. In the Netscape browser, click on the Edit menu, Preferences.
  4. Open the Appearances tree (if a plus-sign (+) appears to the left of Appearances, click once on it).
  5. Select the Fonts branch under Appearances.
  6. Find the dropdown labeled "Fixed Width Fonts" and click on the down-arrow of the dropdown list.
  7. Select "Letter Gothic Line."
  8. Click OK to close the Preferences dialog.
  9. Click your browser's Back button to return to the previous page; you may need to Reload the page to see the drawings correctly.

If the drawings are still not readable, return to the Fonts dialog and select the radio button labeled "Use my default fonts..."  You may wish to change this back when you leave the Seagate web site.

In Microsoft Internet Explorer, you may need to install a new font and set it as your default fixed-width font:

  1. Download Seagate's "Letter Gothic Line" TrueType font from ftp://ftp.seagate.com/techsuppt/letgothl.ttf (or a zipped version from ftp://ftp.seagate.com/techsuppt/letgothl.zip).
  2. In Windows 95, copy the (unzipped) file to your \windows\fonts folder.  In Windows 3.1, see the instructions below for installing the font.
  3. In the Microsoft browser, click on the View menu, Internet Options (this is called Options in 3.x versions).
  4. Select the General tab.
  5. Click on the "Fonts" button ("Font Settings..." in 3.x versions).
  6. Click on the down-arrow of the dropdown list to expose the Fixed-width Fonts.
  7. Select "Letter Gothic Line" from the list.
  8. Click OK to close the font dialog, then OK to close the Options dialog.
  9. Click your browser's Back button to return to the previous page; you should see the drawings correctly.

In Opera, try the following:

  1. If your system supports TrueType fonts, download Seagate's "Letter Gothic Line" TrueType font from ftp://ftp.seagate.com/techsuppt/letgothl.ttf (or a zipped version from ftp://ftp.seagate.com/techsuppt/letgothl.zip).
  2. In Windows 95, copy the (unzipped) file to your \windows\fonts folder.  In Windows 3.1, see the instructions below for installing the font.
  3. Click on the "Preferences" menu, "Font and Background..." option.
  4. Choose "Preformatted text (PRE)" from the list.
  5. Click on the "Edit..." button.
  6. Choose the font "Terminal" or "Letter Gothic Line."  Font size and other properties may be set with this dialog as well.  We suggest a point size of 10 or 12.
  7. Click OK to close the font dialog, then OK to close the "Font and Background..." dialog.
  8. Click your browser's Back button to return to the previous page; you should see the drawings correctly.

To install the TrueType font in Windows 3.1:

  1. Start Windows 3.1.
  2. Go to the Main folder and select Control Panel.
  3. Select the Fonts applet.
  4. Select Add.
  5. In the box marked "Drives" select the drive (C:, or D: for example) that contains the file LETGOTHL.TTF.
  6. Select the directory where the file is stored. The font names will appear in the section marked "List of Fonts".
  7. Click on the font you want to install: "Letter Gothic Line".
  8. Click on OK. This font will be available to all your Windows
    applications.
