New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hi, I am new to making fonts and would like some help to a few questions I have. Helping me clearing these up would be much appreciated. :)
The image below show what is supposed to be a sci-fi all caps font.
1) How do I set the EM/point size for the entire font?
I worry that by making one glyph taller or lower than the others, that it will override any default or even preset value. I am concerned that if I can't keep the point size consistent, that the edges then will become fuzzy on accident as the plines are shifted.
2) How can I make sure that the glyphs end up looking the best at they possibly can, without them looking inconsistent?
For example, with left side looking fuzzy on an all caps "i" character, but with right side looking sharp?
3) What are the basic requirement for finishing a font with FontForge, if only having completed drawing up all the glyphs?
I worry that by omitting something in the settings I accidentally have the font look bad, or even cause issues with usability.
For example, if typing text with my font in an image editor, when typing non-caps, the image editor switches fonts. Therefore I put some x glyph into those lower case letters in FontForge, to avoid having my image editing software switch fonts as I accidentally type stuff in non caps.
