Changing font family on PDF

I've just published an epub. I decided to spare myself from the custom font obstacle course, because I believe users are allowed to select from several fonts in the finished epub, anyway, right? (I decided Georgia would be a good font, and I see that Kindle offers that choice.) However, I used Calibre to convert my plain-vanilla epub to a PDF and suddenly realized that I'm stuck with an ordinary font (probably Times New Roman). Is there an easy way to change the serif-fonts in a PDF file to a ...

React, respond, rebuild

This pandemic is having an immediate effect on almost every job and it's likely to have a longer-lasting impact in the years ahead. There's plenty of speculation around this topic but this article from Lynda Gratton in MIT Sloan Management Review is one of the most insightful ones I've read. The author refers to a survey response she got from one CEO who said their mantra is "React, respond, rebuild." It reminds me of the agile approach to software development and one of the keys to both is flex...

PageEdit Dark Mode

Windows 10 Pro version 1909 - I've been using dark mode since version 1809. I recently upgraded to PageEdit 1.2 (I skipped 1.1) and I'm getting this: Attachment 179835 I tried setting a PAGEEDIT_USES_DARK_MODE User environment variable to '0' and to '1', but it made no difference. Black text on a charcoal background is hard to read. So, how can I get rid of the dark mode effect? Apart from changing the Windows setting itself or reverting to PE 1.0. BR Attached T...

Daily Prime - Masterpiece Convoy & Trailers Through The Years

For some of us, there will never be another Optimus Prime to match Takara's Masterpiece MP-1 figure. Many will argue that it is too big, heavy and is difficult to transform. These are all good points, yet it is not what makes this figure good or bad, it is that it set a new and very high standard for what an Optimus Prime toy could be.

"The decision to buy a handgun for the first time is typically motivated by self-protection. But..."

"... it also raises the purchasers’ risk of deliberately shooting themselves by ninefold on average, with the danger most acute in the weeks after purchase, scientists reported on Wednesday. The risk remains elevated for years, they said," the NYT reports.Thanks, scientists, but did you exclude the people who bought guns because they'd already formed an intention to shoot themselves? Or maybe it's just the NYT that wrote it that way, making it sound as though there are a lot of people who buy a ...

He has a really long hat :-) He’s got the same tattoos as the last fellow- Eagle on his chest, George Washington on his arms.
