Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Okay! I just upgraded to FC v.13, and now when I open that first .fcp file you sent me, Jonne, everything comes out okay.

So that's good -- but I still haven't found my thinking cap in all the clutter around here, so I'll have to get back to you later with more.

Gotta find that cap first... :lol:

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Oh wow, re the font you sent me, indeed it seems to work for "an," swapping out the other n ender glyph instead -- although I get a major headache trying to figure out what you did. And rest assured it's not you, it's me. I used to do freelance web design, and although I've done okay with ...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Oh, bummer -- I just went to look at the file you emailed me back, and I get a message saying "This project was created with a newer version of FontCreator and cannot be opened" (etc.). Can you do a "save as" that's compatible with earlier versions of FC? I'm on v. 11 right now. ...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Um, isn't whatever info you need contained in the TTF file? Doesn't opening that effectively give you my font project?

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Okay, I am so friggin' stumped here, I've been pulling my hair out like crazy and just can't seem to figure this out. I had my font all nice with different alts for beginning letters, ending letters, and other substitutions, but I found that my "n.ender" could be different in combination w...

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 ...

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 m...

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...
