I almost never use the samples toolbar, and I wonder how you use it to build fonts. Many free fonts consist only of upper case letters. You have lots of choices to complete it. 1. Make it the sample and drag them into a new font with Include Outlines and the job is nearly done. 2. Make some other f...

From release date until now I have been using MainType 5.1 with around 25,000 of my favorite fonts and all has worked well. Dare I really test it's capacity? Last week I dared. I turned it loose on one of my collection folders with 175,000 fonts, some dups. It ran for 9 hours! MainType5.1-1.JPG I no...

My daughter showed me a website where we can download a pdf of a book written in 1867 on how to read this:
The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe: Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my . . . awareness. I can't read this stuff!...
A treasure I just gleaned from the above is Ihlenburg(1884).ttf in Fonto Fonts. Ihlenburg(1884).jpg I hadn't seen this style before. The font needs some numbers in my opinion, but I love the way the period works! Note the fancy surrounding period at the end of the name and just before ttf at the top...
For those of you that don't know, Our Dick Pape is a very busy guy! I first met him on line at High-Logic in 2004, when he was already a member here. He has been steadily churning out fonts ever since, chasing (and passing in my opinion) his hero, Manfred Klein of Germany. DickPape--ButterflyInsects...
