Re: Munson

I have been looking at the Roman and the Italic. I remember Monotype Modern Roman from metal type. Munson Roman has the upward hook lower right on both a lowercase a and on an uppercase R and that looks good. Modern Roman and Modern Italic were often used for typesetting of mathematical text books, ...

Re: Quest text 2017 font for experimental chess encoding

Yes, still the same. I can post the text here, I can copy it back, yet the copy, although it displays well is not quite the same. I do not understand what is happening at the moment and so maybe this is an issue of how the lines need to be spaced when using the new format to typeset a chess diagram ...

Re: Quest text 2017 font for experimental chess encoding

Yes the experiment worked very well, at first, but there is an issue. I logged off before I tried it so that my test was as an ordinary user of the forum. It was interesting in that I pasted into PagePlus X7 then formatted to the Quest text 2017 font then switched on the liga substitution in PagePlu...

Re: Quest text 2017 font for experimental chess encoding

An experiment. I have the text for the above diagrams in the PagePlus X7 desktop publishing program on my computer. The experiment is to copy the text from there and paste it twice into this web page, once in text, once in a code panel. After that, to clear the clipboard on my computer by copying an...

Re: Adding Ligatures in place of Kerning.

> Putting in all the ligatures by hand would be a real pain. Well, yes maybe, if there are a lot of them, but if time is not critical and the end result is desired, then maybe producing the end result is worth the extra effort. One possibility is to produce a PDF (Portable Document Format) document ...
