Times Newer Roman Typeface


Times Newer Roman, a font that looks just like Times New Roman, except each character is 5-10% wider.

Times Newer Roman is designed to add length to any academic paper that has page requirements and also requires the use of Times New Roman. Times Newer Roman is actually an altered version of Nimbus Roman No.9 L (1), a free and open-source font meant to mimic the size and look of the original Times New Roman typeface. The few minor changes that have been made are in pursuit of widening the letters and the spaces between letters without changing their vertical heights at all. This means that a paper of given word count will have more length when rendered in Times Newer Roman instead of the old Times New Roman—hopefully without being noticeable to whoever's job it is to grade the paper.

The x–height (2) of all lowercase letters has been increased by about 5% so that they sit wider at the same point size. Certain letters that can be widened easily, like the "n", "u", "v", "y", among others, have been edited manually. The size of punctuation has been increased by 15% across the board and the spaces around them increased proportionally.

Fulfill lengthy page requirements with hacked margins, adjusted punctuation sizing, and now, Times Newer Roman!
