Change Default Browser Font

Some languages require the use of special fonts to properly display the Sterling B2B Integrator user interface. The client computer must be configured to display these types of fonts. Each Windows client must be configured.

Note: The instructions for configuring a browser’s display will differ for each browser. Refer to your chosen browser’s documentation for specific instructions on configuring that browser’s display.

The following is an example of how to change the default browser font for an Internet Explorer (IE) window.

To configure a client machines display for IE:

  1. Determine which fonts are needed to support your needed language and verify they are installed on the server.
    Note: The installation of additional fonts/languages on the server should be done in coordination with your technical support team. Be sure to include a Unicode Sans Serif font on your server.
  2. Open an IE browser window.
  3. Select Tools > Internet Options.
  4. At the bottom of the window under Appearance, click Fonts.
  5. From the Language Script drop-down menu, change the Latin based value to the appropriate script for your needed language.
    Note: If your encoding is not available, you may need to install a new version of Internet Explorer, but make sure you install the appropriate international options.
  6. Select a Webpage font and a Plain text font appropriate for the new language. A Plain text font is one in which all the characters take up the same amount of space and is associated with older computer terminals.
    Note: If no fonts are listed in the menus, then you need to install fonts designed for that encoding.
  7. Click OK to close the Fonts window.
  8. Click OK again to close the Internet Options window.
  9. Close your browser window.
  10. Open a new browser window and access the Sterling B2B Integrator user interface to verify your changes have been applied.
