New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
The following are some of the banes of my existence.
Why isn’t DTL Elzevir, or Fleischmann, available in OpenType? (Or at a feasible dollar price?) And why isn’t the Font Bureau’s Miller available in OpenType? Didn’t most foundries get their big sellers into OpenType several years ago?
And Linotype: Why is your Baskerville only available in your own unimpressive “Com” version of OpenType, which lacks all typographical features? Why is your Monticello not available in OpenType at all (and why is there no OpenType Pro version of your Times and Times Ten)?
When will Williams Caslon be released?
And hey there, Mark von Bronkhorst: What’s up with not making Verdigris available in OpenType?
Finally, hello there, Mac OS X Leopard font people responsible for fouling up the Typography panel in Pages and other applications that use Core Text—how could you in good conscience release a supposedly finished product that generally fails to work at all, and breaks behavior from the previous OS release, with no detectible gain to the user? Then leave it on sale for months without an update? Do you really use Leopard yourselves?
This concludeth my rant. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest!
