Re: Thoreau's Hand - Based on the Handwriting of Henry David Thoreau

Oh, and re this (saw your PM first, and your note here about the PM, before I just saw this)... I noticed that your font features different lowercase 'l's when they are doubled and tripled up. What type of substitution is it? Liga? Calt? I'm really wondering how you got the 'l's feature to work with...

Re: Thoreau's Hand - Based on the Handwriting of Henry David Thoreau

Oh, nice! I've been working hard on my font(s), fixing up a LOT more things than just the quotes -- although that's cool you did that in the interim. Re the signature, I've been trying to dig up examples of Thoreau's real, actual signature, and that ended up being a bit more problematic than I thoug...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Applying colour to the text does not seem to affect the coloured glyphs. I see the coloured glyph you used is ALL colour, though -- no black parts. I guess that's it -- I actually WOULD like my font work such that I could add colour to my text, and make it a very dark brown rather than black, and t...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Yes, I did try your tutorial before, Bhikkhu! I managed to get one letter created and it seemed to work fine, and then for some reason I couldn't create a second one and got frustrated and gave up. Don't blame your tutorial, though, I'll take the blame for that -- this type design stuff does seem to...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Oh, okay. I tried to make a colour font once before (ages ago) and even got help here on that, but just couldn't seem to get things to work right -- it would have been very nice if I could, but at the same time it's not "imperative" that I figure it out. I didn't realize you ended up with a font wit...

Re: Chaining Context Substitutions

I just happened upon this thread, popped in out of curiosity. What a beautiful font you've done here, Bhikkhu -- and that's just going from the screenshots you've provided here! Is this the "calligraphy" font that you had meant to show me before (in another thread)? I recall your showing me one, say...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

I'm still working on another update for my font (I'm trying really hard to not overlook anything this time before I upload the next one), and hopefully should have that done soon, but here's a couple links that I came across before at the beginning of this contextual alts journey, back when I was lo...

Re: Font foundry info?

Properties -> Legal -> Vendor ID / Vendor (Manufacturer) I guess I mean the box above that, where you get a drop-down list of already-established names (I presume), so not " Vendor (Manufacturer)" but rather "Vendor ID." How do you get an "ID"? If that's nothing I need to concern myself with (being...

Re: Thoreau's Hand - Based on the Handwriting of Henry David Thoreau

OMG Psymon, It was absolutely inadvertent! I thought you overlapped those glyphs on purpose...the way Thoreau really may have done it. Ha ha, that's one thing I learned about doing a font like this, that it's incredibly easy to miss mistakes because the font itself is like a mess of tangled wires -...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Hey, thanks for the replies on this, Erwin and Bhikkhu! You both bring up some rather good points -- and yes, I have indeed encountered that issue you illustrated (literally), Erwin, with the opening apostrophe showing up as a left-quote, rather than a right-quote. Nevertheless, I still find myself ...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

I think I figured out how to resolve my previous conundrum -- I just kerned the period (etc.) away from my "h," which then pushed the quote mark away, too, of course. But without a quote, that period looks kinda far away -- but then, that's how Thoreau often wrote them himself. If I had my druthers,...
