New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Thanks to all who've given me some contructive feedback on my typeface, so far.
I've draw the glyphs in Illustrator CS2. Then saved them down a Illustrator 8 EPS files to import into TypeTool. (All Mac OSX.)
Anyway, see the picture of how the figures have appeared so far. All are fine except uppercase A and B - you'll notice the glyphs are solid. The line/contour for the spaces are there but i don't know how to "knock out" the black. Any idea what i can do here?
I've double checked the paths in Illustrator, and there are definitely not solid, although they do consist of overlaying objects. I've been trying to use the Pathfinder/Shape Modes but I can't achieve anythign better. If I could fix the problem in Illustrator that would make my life much easier.
The other problem I have is spacing. If I install the font as is, each character sits right next to each other with no space. Ho do I create the spacing? Is it simply a case of moving the guides in TypeTool to the left and right ever so slightly?
Thanks in advance
