Too Big To Work

Post by Dick Pape »

When creating a new font from Art Nouveau images I arrived at this character which was verrrry slow to open (Edit). When it finally displayed some time later, I could see why -- Scroll down!

Those gray areas were thousands of tiny shapes. I don't believe those images are supposed to be faces, but I'll never find out...

I gave up on this character.

I've given up trying to work very large glyphs -- more than 32k points since FontLab blue screens when trying to read them. My other font friends get mad if I send them one of these.
