Default Centerpoint font

I finished a library book and it uses a large print font called Centerpoint.

I did a search but found nothing.

I would like to install that font.

Thanks.

The origin of that "book", and the software used to create that "book" are
the hints.

I don't have an answer, but if you don't find it you could try
to find something similar at a site like dafont.com. Fonts are
a kind of graphic design. Some, like Old English or Arial, have
been mainstream for many years. Others are created by artists
and may have little or no circulation. The only thing I could
think of to do would be to borrow the book again and look in
the front pages. Sometimes you'll find an attribution or copyright
notice for the font.

I'll give you as much info as you gave us.

There is a web site that accepts a graphics file
with a font sample on it, and returns a list of
candidates. When I tested that, it returned a list
of fifty possibilities, and the "correct answer"
was *the very last line in the results*, not the
first line :-) I must award that site a small
prize, for being so clever about it.

All it takes, is one miss-spelling of that name

Centerpoint
Centerpointe
Center Point

to give entirely different results. The font name
and the font house would be useful info. If we had
a link to a Google scan sample of the book, then
it might be possible to sample the font and upload
to the recognition site.

It's a company, not a font. I can't guess why you
assumed it was a font:

As Paul said, it would be easier for everyone if you
provided info with the question.
