Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

At the moment I'm wrestling with the Cyrillic character set, it's mostly done for the Roman font but not yet started for italic, bold and bold italic.

I have made the changes you wanted to the Yogh brothers but again only for the roman font as yet.

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

I will change the upper and lower case yogh for more curved versions like the ones in the Unicode charts.

I was just being lazy.

Re: Export All

I also think this would be a useful enhancement.

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

If anyone is wondering where the files went for the earlier versions of Kelvinch. I took the liberty of deleting the files from the earlier posts I made. This saves Erwin some space on his server. The previous files were embarrasingly full of mistakes and inconsistencies. The latest files are the on...

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

Last week I said it would be this week when I finished Kelvinch. It is still this week (only just). It still isn't finished but this one is usable. I have made many cosmetic changes, the bridges of the n m h and u have been thickened up as they disappeared at low point sizes. The metadata for the as...

Re: Font for teachers

Another font you might consider is 'Andika' which is available from SIL http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page ... _id=Andika. It is a highly legible sans serif font and it is available free.

No problem, I discovered that you can put a background image behind a glyph just like Font Forge, yes it is in the documentation, yes i missed it in the documenttation ... Doh!

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

Dear William, Here is a snapshot of the project as it exists at the moment, uncompressed as you wanted it. But understand this is a moving target, it is still a work in progress. I probably posted it too soon but I was interested to see what people thought of it. It is still under development so not...

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

I didn't know that it was possible to display a background image behind a glyph you are editing. It is possible in Font Forge but I haven't noticed it in Font Creator.

If it is possible then this is a very useful facility.

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

Dear Bhikkhu, Thank you for your reply. You're right of course. Auto Kern does generate a lot of pairs that will probably never occur in real text. And I thought it was such a good idea, it enables a noob like me to cheat and let the machine do all the hard work. I am not an expert in typography. I'...

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

I have added a ct ligature and some OpenType Features for Standard and Discretionary Ligatures. I added the legacy kern table to the export options — otherwise the kerning will not work in some applications, including Serif PagePlus X8 or earlier. I have also made some other minor modifications — t...

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

Thank you very much for your help Bhikkhu. It is much appreciated (and so fast).

I will take a look at the modifications at some point today.

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

Ok ... here is the latest iteration of Kelvinch Roman, the others (italic, bold and bold-italic) will follow as soon as they are finished, probably sometime next week. I have included the Welsh characters and a few others, I've erased the .null characters contours. I have decreased the size of the b...

Does everyone on the forum have 7-zip ?
