Nothing was attached.  In any case, please follow the posting guide 
and tell us your platform and graphics device and give a reproducible 
example.  They way this is done is in detail device- and OS-specific, 
but the 'family' and 'pointsize' arguments to the device will give you 
are good start.

If you really want 'Times New Roman' you will need to know exactly 
what that means -- it is a Monotype copyright font with several 
versions.  Your OS may have one of those, or it may have a clone and 
you may need to buy a licence to one of the originals.

If all you need is something in the 'Times Roman' family the Adobe and 
URW versions become available to you: for many devices one of those is 
selected by family="Times".
