clear gothic writing on mac

When you view a Word document created in Windows in Word for Mac, sometimes characters are broken or overlapped. The same goes for PowerPoint.


When text is displayed as ㅁㅁㅁ in Mac Office

When opening a document created in Windows with a Mac's Word or PowerPoint program, there are cases where a square box like ㅁㅁㅁㅁ is displayed where text should appear.

In this case, the font does not exist on the Mac. Documents created in desktop and gullim fonts in Windows are displayed well in Office for Mac.

The problem is clear gothic. Sunny Gothic fonts are often used in Windows, but since Sunny Gothic is not installed on Mac by default, characters cannot be displayed.

All you need to do is bring the clear gothic font from Windows to your Mac and install it.

There is a clear gothic font in c:\windows\fonts on the Windows computer. If you bring it to your Mac and double-click it, the font is installed.

In Windows, Sunny Gothic was included for the first time in Office 2007, and in Windows Beast and Windows 7, Sunny Gothic is built into the operating system.

However, even if Office for Mac is installed on Mac, Office for Mac does not include the clear Gothic font. The Mac version that corresponds to Office 2007 on Windows is Office 2008 for Mac, and the Mac version that corresponds to Office 2010 on Windows is Office 2011 for Mac.

The reason is probably because there is no Korean version of Office for Mac. There is no clear gothic font, and there is no Hangul spell checker. The lack of consideration for Korean users while using Mac in Korea is considerably higher when using Apple products than when using Microsoft products.

This is because the font name on Mac is 'Malgun Gothic', not 'Sunshine Gothic', even if the Sunshine Gothic font imported from Windows is installed on the Mac.

This causes the most serious Mac and Windows compatibility problems for Korean users who use the clear gothic font.
