Colour Blocks One

Post by William » Fri Sep 27, 2013 1:07 pm

Here is a colour font. It is an output of a project that is in progress, published in the hope that people will have fun trying to produce art using the font.

I know that the font can be used to produce colour blocks art using the preview panel of FontCreator 7.5.

A Print Screen image of the screen can be made and then pasted into Microsoft Paint and then trimmed to size and a png image file produced using Microsoft Paint.

Images are welcome in this thread please.

If anyone can get the font to work elsewhere then it would be appreciated if he or she could post details in this thread please.

I have a new computer, an Acer laptop running Windows 8.1.

I have just installed my COLOUR BLOCKS TWO font and tried it in WordPad, but there is only a monochrome display, not a colour display.

Does anyone know please if that is that just how it is with WordPad or do I need to enable a colour mode or something?

I don't think it supports color fonts.

Congrats with the new PC! I think you will be able to freely upgrade Windows to version 10 later this year. Hopefully that comes with more and better color fonts support.
