    Hi,

    I do a lot of typing in Chinese, because I am working to get my official Chinese language status recognized by the government (Even though it's my first langauge...) and this requires ALOT of writing. I hate writing Chinese by hand because I have horrible writing, plus I am left-handed, so my strokes are all backwards... Anyways, I recently got a program called NJ STAR Communicator, and you basically type Chinese with it using the "Hanyu Pinyin" method. You type in what the word sound like using Latin letters, and bingo, it shows up as Chinese. Originally, there is only ONE font you can use, and that is the bland looking MingLiu... So, as a solution for this bland font, I downloaded a WHOLE bunch of Chinese fonts which are really cool...

    The only problem is that certain words show up in the new cool, professional looking font, and others (the ones that have an equivalent in Simplified Chinese... Coincidence?) don't change at all... I've tried everything, even typing in simplified Chinese (although my course in traditional...) Anyone with ANY knowhow regarding Chinese typing software, please help me... This is kind of urgent. I've tried to be as specific as possible, so I've included 2 screenshots describing what I mean.

    Hi Badal, thanks for your reply. I posted this 8 months ago and have since found a solution, which is exactly what you said and, yes it works. The problem with the font was that it's a font for simplified Chinese, and I was typing in traditional, and the reason that a few of them were showing up were because they are the same in simplified and traditional Chinese.
