Re: Quest text 2017 font for experimental chess encoding

Here is the OpenType code that I used. I do not know whether liga is the correct table to use, but I used it as I knew that I was able to easily test the font in Serif PagePlus X7 if I used liga. Although you could use other OpenType features, liga is probably the safest bet. Fonts such as Apple Sa...

Re: Comic Sans Day - Celebrate the Most Hated Font ;-)

In the Netherlands the first Friday of July is Comic Sans day. And since this is the first Friday of April, that day is exactly thirteen weeks away. Coincidentally, July 7th is also Chocolate Day, Tell the Truth Day and Global Forgiveness Day! :lol: Some Dutch companies have their website in Comic ...

Re: Engraving Font

I'm wondering what the process would be to try to edit it well enough so it does get recognized by a program like that I put the image in the centre of a larger canvas in an image editor, and then applied a 'rectangular to polar' distortion followed by a threshold adjustment which allowed me to cre...

Re: Urgently Looking For Script Font.. Help Please

I can only echo what Mike has said.

By a curious coincidence, the list of similar fonts on Identifont.com includes Stuart Sandler's 'Chicken Basket', but apart from the name it isn't a good match for these samples.

Thanks, Erwin. That's good to know. :)

Re: What is the name of this forum's font?

The forum does not specify any font as far as I can tell, so the font used will depend on which browser you use to read the forum. Most browsers will use TNR by default to display unstyled text. The CSS for the forum specifies the following font stack for the "content" class: font-family:...

Very clever! Your search hint led me to fonts.gr, where there seem to be several 'CF' fonts.

Re: modern Greek script font

As in many handwritten fonts, the strokes in the lambda in VAG Handwritten are rather curvy, but otherwise it's essentially the same as in most formal fonts, with two sloping strokes meeting at or near the x-height. The lambdas in the OP's examples are distinctively different, looking like a horizon...

Re: Unicode Brings Skin Tones to Snowboarders

Interesting! I'm now trying to get my head around the difference between a zero-width joiner (ZWJ) and a zero-width no-break space (ZWNBS). Likewise for the zero-width non-joiner and the zero-width space. :o

Re: Open Fonts in FontCreator

My immediate thought was that it would make sense for MainType to issue a warning, even though FontCreator already asks for confirmation if you try to open more than ten fonts at the same time, but then it occurred to me that MainType has no way of knowing how many other fonts FontCreator is set to ...
