NJStar Chinese WP FAQ
There may be two issues:
- You can not find the TTF fonts:
Please choose TTF fonts from the "font box" on the NJStar format TOOL-BAR (you may need to scroll upwards to find these fonts);
- You can select the TTF fonts but there is no change on the screen:
By default, NJStar WP uses bitmap font for smaller font sizes (such as size 12) because bitmap font is faster to load and clearer to see on screen in smaller sizes.
You can overwrite this setting by going through "Tools", "Options...", "General", then unchecking "Using bitmap font for TTF when characters are too small".
However, the above (bitmap screen display) option does not stop you from printing TTF characters, as it only affect the characters' on-screen display.
In CWP v5.0 or above, please check if "teaching rules" is applied. When "Teaching rules" is on, many input options are disabled, so that users are forced to type exactly correct code to input Chinese. Users can configure "teaching rules" from "Tools"->"Options"->"Teaching", select which options to enable. Simply click the "teaching rules" button again to disable "teaching rules".
Although you can use NJStar Communicator to input Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) text. it is not intend to be a complete solution for CJK word processing.
NJStar Communicator is designed to allow you to make ad hoc CJK input, such as into web search engine and short email messaging etc. It has no CJK true type fonts included. Nor has it got dictionary functions as NJStar word processors.
In NJStar Chinese WP 6, Unicode is used as internal code, so both simplified and traditional Chinese characters can be mixed easily in the same document. You just need to switch NJStar Chinese WP to simplified or traditional Chinese character input as needed. Once a character is inserted into the document, it will stay the same until you use simplified or traditional conversion function to convert it.
NJStar WP Version 6 can now work on Linux under WINE 1.x+. WINE is a free open source program that allows running of most Windows programs on Linux. After WINE is installed, you can simply download NJStar from here, then run it to setup NJStar on Linux. We have tested it successfully on Centos 5+, Fedora 9+, OpenSuse 11+ and Ubuntu 8+. Here are some screenshots.
