Re: testing new font

Ahh, said the blind man, now I see. Thank you very much for all of your help. I had wondered about using Specials over Private Use Areas, now I know. I knew kerning would need work, that's why I was trying to test the font. Again, thank you.

Re: Font, about 100 years old, survey map

I have something similar roughed-in in my design journal. Mine is based on an old sign & chart printers stamp set from the 1940's or 1950's.

You could also set up an e-commerce site and use pay pal, google pay or amazon pay to collect e-funds. Which is my plan.

Re: images split on loading into FC

What size did you export 0.pdf to jpg at? I'll change mine to match. Could be AutoCAD settings I'll check them. Yes, original AutoCAD file is outline, the intention was variations on the typeface without redrawing all the characters. Just change the fill in photoshop. Not to mention faster than colo...

Lindisfarne.ttf Glyph was originally created in AutoCad, exported as pdf to photoshop, converted to jpeg. Hei...
