Contour-fill at design time

Is it possible to turn contour-fill off at design time please? For example, at present, when I draw a small b, having drawn the clockwise contour, all of the guidelines are covered where I want to draw the counterclockwise contour. If contour-fill cannot presently be turned off, could it be made an ...

Thank you for replying. I think that a lot of the problems which I am having come down largely to the fact that I am trying to use the information in the Softy-produced fonts which I produced previously to try to produce fonts saved using Font Creator Program 4.5 rather than produce fonts entirely w...

Artistic Text font

I have now added the Artistic Text font to the web. It is a font which I produced using the Softy program at various times during March and April 2004 and to which I returned yesterday in order to publish the font on the web.

Using advanced Unicode features

Something which I find rather puzzling is the way that whether one can use advanced OpenType features on a Windows PC depends very much upon which version of Windows is running. For example, it appears that the glyph substitution capabilities of an OpenType font cannot be used on a Windows 95 or Win...

Chronicle Text font

Supplementary note of 2 December 2009 I have been reading this post and realize that it is in need of updating. I had the idea of the font being shareware at that time but gave up that idea not long afterwards. The font is now a free download. End of supplementary note of 2 December 2009 ---- I have...

One possibility which you might perhaps think worth considering is to place your signature character in a font on its own. It might be best not to assign it to a lowercase letter in case a wordprocessor package tries to replace the lowercase letter with the corresponding uppercase letter. If a stand...
