No I won't. It's not my personality type to do so. Have a look at the
Myers Briggs Type Indicator for personality type, the key message is that
not everybody has the same personality type.
I may argue a point if I consider it right to do so, but I do not argue
something just for the sake of arguing or because of some notion of not
being willing to lose face or something like that in accepting that I did
not previously know something.
I mean, that is pointless and is a waste of time. Anyway, it is not my
nature to be like that.
So, I did not know the correct situation and you have helped me by
explaining more about it. Thank you.

But I won't, it's not my personality to so so.
I genuinely did not understand and I am grateful to you for explaining the
matter to me.

Once. A notification in a dialogue box that the problem exists with a
button to click for further detailed information as to which character or
characters, how many times for each, and on which pages and lines.

No, just the once.

Thank you for explaining the matter about the TrueType fonts.
