Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

There has to be a cut off point, the question is where do you want to put that cut off point. After my NEXT revision. I hope. ;) I did upload a couple updates to the font already, since I first did an "official" release the other day, and those were pretty significant. There's one other t...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Perhaps you would like to read the story of the chariot maker from Bhikkhu Pesala's other website (the one whose subject is religion rather than software). Ha ha, yes, considering the types of fonts that I've chosen to make, I've definitely become "skilful in the crookedness, knots, and defect...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Why not put it in the Gallery ? Oh, because I hadn't thought of that! Can I just post a link to my site there in the gallery, so at least people will get the latest version? I was just looking at this page of "tips for sharing" from Bhikkhu... https://forum.high-logic.com/viewtopic.php?f=...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Oh, to heck with it -- I just ran off all my fonts as version 1.00, and went ahead and released them. It's inevitable that I'll find more things that need fixing up, so even if anyone here does have suggestions for improvements or anything, those could come along with the next update. In the meantim...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

My Lekhana Typeface has an oblique, bold, and bold oblique, but it is calligraphic script rather than a handwriting font. I'm wondering if you're referring to the right font here. I downloaded Lekhana, unzipped it, but what I see doesn't look calligraphic at all, it looks like a serif text font (li...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Oh, wow, thank you, Erwin! And this was my very first attempt at a handwriting font (with letters connecting up and everything) -- I have to admit, I'm actually still a bit shocked that I managed to pull this off at all. As I say on the web page, for two decades I had a dream of creating a font out ...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Handwriting fonts don't really need italic or bold versions. They are already italic, but should be defined as a Regular type style. Well, handwriting fonts may not "need" them, but mine have got 'em. :wink: I have regular, oblique, and then bold versions of both. It was confusing for me ...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Not sure what else to say, other than... TA DA! :D [EDIT: I've updated the "temp" link here to the final, official URL] http://www.psymon.com/fonts/thoreau.html I've been working on that web page for the past week, and now need to get back to more kerning -- kerning, kerning, kerning, endl...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

New issue here... With my Walden font, I just noticed something I don't recall ever seeing in any of the fonts I've ever worked on before -- a new thingie in that main panel (whatever you call that panel) for "Troubleshooting," in which it lists some "Outline Issues" that I guess...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Oh, that's good suggestion, PJ, to try to get the letter-spacing/line length, etc. to all match up nicely. I'd be surprised if I could match them up perfectly, but I can certainly try to get them close. And yes, that's a great bit of "kerning examples" from Bikkhu! I have a couple text fil...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Odd, I seem to be missing the whole, entire beginning of the thread. I think there were 4 "pages" before? Now there's 2.

Oh well.

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

I wonder if my Falsum font should be ever-so-slightly bolder, just a teeny, teeny, teeny tiny bit, just to give it an ever-so-subtle more "emphatic" effect, and stand out just a tiny bit more. But definitely only the tiniest little bit, because I was trying to make these lines look as thou...

Re: Need Help with Handwriting Font

Oh no! You mean the whole first bunch of posts in this thread are all gone now? That's what seems to be the case for me. Well, for ME it's not so bad, because what disappeared was stuff I've resolved already -- but I guess it's a shame for others who may have stumbled in here looking for the same in...

Pardon my stupidity, but I have no idea what you mean. :oops:
