HistorySource Code Pro was designed by Paul D. Hunt as a companion to Source Sans. This complementary family was adapted from the Source design due to a request to create a monospaced version for coding applications. Source Code preserves the design features and vertical proportions of Source Sans, but alters the glyph widths so that they are uniform across all glyphs and weights. Although this family was designed specifically for coding environments, for which a regular weight will typically suffice, Source Code has been made available in the same weight range as the corresponding Source Sans design.
Menu Names And Style Linking
In many Windows® applications, instead of every font appearing on the menu, fonts are grouped into style-linked sets, and only the name of the base style font for a set is shown in the menu. The italic and the bold weight fonts of the set (if any) are not shown in the font menu, but can still be accessed by selecting the base style font, and then using the italic and bold style buttons. In this family, such programs will show only the following base style font names in the menu:
Source Code Pro
Source Code Pro Black
Source Code Pro ExtraLight
Source Code Pro Light
Source Code Pro Medium
Source Code Pro Semibold
The other fonts in this family must be selected by choosing a menu name and then a style option following the guide below.
|Menu Name||plus Style Option...||selects this font|
|Source Code Pro||[none]||Source Code Pro Regular|
|Source Code Pro||Bold||Source Code Pro Bold|
|Source Code Pro ExtraLight||[none]||Source Code Pro ExtraLight|
|Source Code Pro Light||[none]||Source Code Pro Light|
|Source Code Pro Medium||[none]||Source Code Pro Medium|
|Source Code Pro Semibold||[none]||Source Code Pro Semibold|
|Source Code Pro Black||[none]||Source Code Pro Black|
On the Mac OS, although each font appears as a separate entry on the font menu, users may also select fonts by means of style links. Selecting a base style font and then using the style links (as described above for Windows) enhances cross-platform document compatibility with many applications, such as Microsoft® Word and Adobe PageMaker®, although it is unnecessary with more sophisticated Adobe applications such as recent versions of Illustrator®, Photoshop® or InDesign®.
One should not, however, select a base font which has no style-linked variant, and then use the bold or italic styling button. Doing so will either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
