How to install APL Font (ONLY) on new Windows PC

Postby woody on Sun Jun 26, 2016 12:13 am

Greetings,

As we begin to promote the use of APLscript (APL sessions on the Web), we will suggest to our APLer "new-bees" to install the APL Font on their Windows PC.

I am a little confused about which of these character set / font related MSI installation programs are needed .. and for what purpose.

If the goal is to only have the APL Character set installed on a Windows PC .. then which of these files should the APLer "new-bee" install ?

setup_64_unicode.msi (and 32 bit)
setup_fonts.msi
setup_ime_64.msi (and 32 bit)

Other files?

I have looked for documentation about this, but could not find anything that was not associated with the full install of Dyalog APL.

Sincere thanks!

Hi Woodley! It sounds as if all you need to do is to download the font from http://www.dyalog.com/apl-font-keyboard.htm and install it.
