It should be the last font on the dropdown, Luis.


How sure are you about that?


Pretty sure, I don't think there is but one interface. Or are they language specific?


Maybe there is a locale difference. The south v. the North. ;)

On my machine there are 5 fonts with names beginning Y. They are the last fonts in the dropdown, which lists in alphabetic order. I thought the dropdown listed all fonts installed on the machine, but on checking I find it doesn't - maybe SSMS (in SQL 2012) permits only opentype layout fonts?

It doesn't show them all in SSMS 2008 either, but I don't think I'm going to lose any sleep over not having them.

Maybe. How long do you think we can keep this up before someone gets annoyed at us? Obfuscation is my life.

I have 3 installed wingdings fonts (wingdings regular, wingdings 2, wingdings 3) and also webdings, but none show up in SSMS. I'm pretty sure such fonts used to show up in SSMS in SQL 2008 and 2008 R2. Of course it could be an OS difference - I'm running win 8.1 now, I was running XP Pro back when I could see wingdings in SSMS.

I think they are just ignoring it


Clearly, some of you need more to do at work. Shouldn't you be off answering questions or something?
Fortunately, it all translates easily enough if you just click "Quote"



It's almost lunch time on a Friday, I'm hungry, and I'm waiting on someone to send me a description of the columns in a txt file that I need to import. My motivation for beginning new tasks that do not involve gustation is low.


Odd that last one auto-translated for me in the browser


They are all in plain english for me. Weird. As I quote I can see the font tags.

I have firefox and they all display just fine, although the font size is smaller than normal.


It seems like a firefox related issue as I can reproduce it on firefox, but it shows the correct font on IE and Chrome

It's certainly a Firefox issue; but what I don't understand is why SSMS doesn't show the fonts. It isn't a font installation issue. I'm sure SSMS used to show all installed fonts when I was using SQL 2008 on WIn XP Pro; but now (SQL 2012, WIn 8.1) it doesn't.

The joy and fun of migrating DBs to a new server...

Trying to get in touch with the people who need to update the application, people potentially trying to stall to make other people look bad, people who never get back with you...

The backup->copy->restore->check users->update backup software process...

What fun...

I know what you mean. I also love the ever-popular "When I said it should do this, I meant it should do that" syndrome when they didn't think things through to begin with. Fun times...
