Ms Word dropdown anti aliasing question

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone out there knew why some fonts in the Ms Word drop down menu have anti aliasing while some dont? And if there was a way, when making a font, to ensure the font always had anti aliasing when installed on Windows and used in Ms office ?

That is special treatment for some system font. Have you ever seen that for your own?

No never seen anti aliasing for one of my own fonts. Anyway to trick Ms Word into treating my fonts special too?

As far as I know, this is a hard coded list build into Windows.

Ah good to know, thanks for the info.
