Talk of the next Windows 10 release later this Spring is already being heard as the development of Redstone 4 continues. We’re getting to that stage where the final feature set is being decided, and preview experiences such as ‘Sets’ have been completely switched off. Despite this, Build 17083 contains several new features that won’t go unnoticed. The death of Control Panel draws nearer with each update of Windows 10. One switch at a time, it won’t be long before the last lights are shut off and the Windows Settings claims it’s title as the center of configuration on your PC. Recently, we saw a section of Sound added to the Settings. Now, we have a page of Fonts. Here, you’ll be able to see all the Fonts you have installed on your PC, which are listed with some sample text that helps you contrast one from another. Clicking on one of the previews will take you to a details page for that font. This new details page is much more helpful than the one found in the Control Panel. Here, you can see all the different weights and styles of a font family in a list whose size can be adjusted with a slider. The ability to type custom preview text is also much more helpful than the pangram (The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog). You might recall my demonstration of Bahnschrift, the new OpenType Variable-font included with Windows. I elaborated on the infinite possibilities of a typeface whose properties could be manipulated so freely, asking you to imagine being able to adjust the weight of a font with a slider. While the text in that video was simply animated, that slider actually now exists! With an OpenType Variable-font, you can use the new details page to discover the flexibility of fonts such as Bahnschrift with a slider to manipulate its properties with a preview. This makes me happier than it should.You're going want to finish reading this publication, so Please visit OUR FORUM.
