Intelligent Font Analyzer of the Your Handwriting II program

Post by William » Thu Mar 09, 2006 2:11 pm

Recently we purchased a copy of a program named Your Handwriting II.

I make fonts with Font Creator 5.0 and know that I could make a handwriting font using it and have indeed done so.

What interested me about the Your Handwriting II program and which was the factor which led to the purchase was the following in the email offering the package.

Create your font using only six handwritten letters and the Intelligent Font Analyzer

Now, in order to use the program one needs access to a printer and a scanner. The idea is that one prints out a form, then writes letters in the boxes, then scans it in. One can export a bmp file of the scan from the program and one can import a previously exported bmp.

As it happens, there is a problem with the printer here and the scanner is not attached, so I cannot use the program as intended at this time.

However, what I have wanted to do all along is to produce the handwriting using the Microsoft Paint program and then use the Your Handwriting II program to try to produce a font using the Intelligent Font Analyzer facility, which is only part of the program.

Thus, I am writing to ask if anyone who has the Your Handwriting II program could possibly print out the IFA form and then scan it in, either blank or with an example drawn as desired, and then export it as a bmp and then make it available on the web please. If the size of the bmp is a problem, then a gif would be fine as I could download that and then make a bmp from that without any of the information of the original bmp having been lost.

Hopefully I could then try the program to produce a few fonts using the Intelligent Font Analyzer using some bmp files produced by adapting the specimen bmp using Microsoft Paint.
