Bhikku!

I captured the rainbow! And there is gold aplenty. My goal of increasing the weight of the font without doing much work has realized itself. Instead of making a separate font, I saved my original font under a different name then used the glyph transformer AFTER everything was neatly kerned. So copying font values does not work, but as per the example, using the already kerned font information translates perfectly with the glyph transformer!

So happy now!

Be well as I am.

I am glad that you found a more efficient route to kerning your bold font style. It takes years of experience to learn the right order of doing things so that you don't waste time repeating steps.

The Bold Transformation will also change the font's settings to bold for you in recent versions of FontCreator.

Erwin and friends,

I've nearly finished my contextual cursive font and I wanted to thank you all for your support. I don't know how to thank you for your individual attention and interest in my project. So to thank you all enjoy the pic. If you're interested in my code I'd be happy to share it with you.

Blessings,
Jonne
