An important notice about fonts and colors





Fonts

While it's possible to choose whatever font you want for the CDMenuPro interface while you are creating it, this font will only be displayed correctly on other PCs provided the one you have chosen is installed on them. (The more "exotic" the font, the less likely it is to be installed.)

Unfortunately, you, the CDs creator, don't have a list of all the fonts available on other systems. Nevertheless, you can be certain that the following fonts are available on all PCs:
Arial, Helvetica, Sans Serif, Times Roman, Verdana


Help

If you would like to use a more "exotic" font or are uncertain as to whether the font you have chosen is available on other systems, you will have to integrate the font into the background image. 


Colors

If you're creating a menu for a CD, it's also worth bearing in mind that there are systems still in use that are only capable of displaying 256 colors. To this end, you should always check how the background image and buttons will look when the menu interface is displayed on a system with 256 colors. If your graphics software is not capable of displaying the image in 256 colors, you can change the computer's settings to 256 colors.
