Y&Y's DVIWindo Previewer

A Component of the Y&Y TeX System

  • The only application of any kind that provides for on the fly reencoding of scalable outline fonts while using Adobe Type Manager

  • Makes unencoded characters accessible --- and allows arbitrary character layouts in text fonts --- without physically altering the fonts' outline and Windows metrics files

  • Uses only scalable outline fonts (Adobe Type 1 or TrueType); does not require bitmaps. Previewed documents can contain arbitrary fonts, not just Computer Modern

  • Displays documents at any desired magnification

  • Prints to any device that has a Windows printer driver, including HP, IBM, dot-matrix and PostScript printers, even fax boards and Acrobat PDF Writer.

  • Uses the standard Windows graphical user interface

  • Copies regions to the Windows Clipboard for pasting into other Windows applications --- in Windows Metafile (WMF) format, not as bitmaps

Power Features
