Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

Good points (and interesting ones, to boot) -- that Caslon specimen sheet is pretty cool, too! And yes, I suppose you're right that many of the imperfections that ended up in my font are in part due to the ink bleeding into the paper and stuff, although at the same time these metal types were hand-t...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

Geez, I'm still not sure about that "w" -- somehow still looks too big. :( Gonna sleep on it, maybe take another look at it when I'm more awake. EDIT: Had a nice little nap, and I think (hope) the "w" is fixed now -- also adjusted the "v" a little, too (and while I was in there found a bunch more ke...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

Okay! I've fixed up the blackletter issues, and I'm happy once more -- at least, I'm happy for the next 24 hours, until I start "seeing things" again. :lol: I also revised the accompanying PDF of the character set, along with that sample image I threw together -- and so all those files have been swa...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

How the heck do you get that comparison thingie? I searched in the help files, and it talks about the "Comparison Toolbar," so I went looking in the menus and couldn't find anything. So then I tried right-clicking over the toolbar buttons, and in there I see "Comparison," but it's grayed out.

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

Well, la-di-da -- how cool! I had no idea that feature was even in there in FC, to compare glyphs like that. Awesome! I learn something new about this software every day (way to go, Erwin!). :D And re people stealing your efforts and posting them elsewhere, sadly that's just the nature of the intern...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

I'm curious, Bhikkhu -- where were those screenshots from that you posted earlier? They don't look like they came from FC. Is there another, third-party program that's handy to have for stuff like this? I don't mean what program did you use to take the screenshots (I have FastStone Capture as well),...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

I revised my Pali Font many times since 2008; at least a couple of times last year. It is not finished yet. Where/how do you share your fonts? Do you only do so through your own website? That's one of my concerns, actually, about putting my fonts out there with an SIL license -- anyone else can gra...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

Thank you, Bhikkhu, some good advice in your reply in which letters to compare to get the glyphs sized right. I'm just waking up now (literally) and I'm not quite awake yet, but let me get some coffee in me and I'll take another look at these glyphs, with your advice in mind. And re ii changing to i...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

Well, crappity-crap. I don't know if it's because I've been up all night long, pounding back the coffees -- a combination of totally tired, and totally wired -- but now I was just looking at the pangrams text sample option in the preview form on my website, using my blackletter font, and all of a su...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

Thanks for the congrats on my baby, Mike! Here -- have a cigar! :lol: Re the mapping thing, although I was initially intrigued -- at least, in the first half of my first response to Bhikkhu's suggestion -- I just don't really see the point of bothering with it. Practically no other decorative initia...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

But I already have deleted all the lowercase glyphs -- except for the "e," of course, but why would I remove the mapping for that one, when it's needed to make those ligatures? I think maybe this might be complicating things more than they need to be -- like I said, almost all decorative initial fon...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

Interesting.. although I'm too stupid (inexperienced) to know how to do that. :( Now that you've suggested it, Bhikkhu, can you explain to me how? ;) Oh, and the reason I left the "e" in (along with the thorn characters, too) was simply to facilitate creating the AE, OE and Ye ligatures that are in ...

Re: Wickednesse

For anyone out there who may have been following this thread, I've just posted the newfangled version of what used to be called my "Wickednesse" font -- now called "Alde Blacke Magick" -- along with the other fonts that I created for this family. You can find (and download) them all here, just poste...
