New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm hoping for some help with FontLab. I'm pretty new to the program and am having some difficulties when pasting in from illustrator. Based on a friend's good knowledge, I think the glyphs are pasting as a background layer, as they are not editable and show as a filled object rather than outlines like they normally would. Hopefully this makes sense. Does anyone know how to turn off [?] pasting as a background layer?
Thanks in advance!!
I'm searching for an older post. The author needed help in identifying a Sans-serif and uploaded a picture in which the font was placed on a blue sky background, in the lower part of the image the roof a building is shown. The font's colour was white.
I can't remember the name of the topic/author and it's a rather new post, but i can't find it. I discovered it on Wednesday 13th.
Hope you can help me out somehow
Hi! I am one of Warren Chappell's only descendants which, while cool, has always been merely a novelty. Now my own children are teenagers and they have begun to understand how important their great-great-uncle was.
Just yesterday we found A.A. Milne books designed by him. They were excited! We know a little bit of the distant family stuff, but now I want to find more sources about him beyond those on the general search.
Can any of you help me? Thank you.
I am trying to have something like a black block underneath every Letter of the typeface . So basically an inverted version of the typeface on a black Background. Is it possible to automtically generate an effect like that in fontlab or give the typeface a feature to do so? The propblem is that the Typeface is not a monospacetypeface so if i would set up the letters on a black background in the glyphsheet , once two letter would overlap like AV something would be cut away from the A or V. It also needs to work witout doing anything manually afterwards ( like changing underline options in indesing for example)! Would be great if anybody could help me!
All the best
I am once again "typefacing". Back from the grave!
Anyway, i am having a strange issue in Fontlab.
Tried to import background but it doesnt recognize the .JPG or .BMP or even .GIF it does recognize .TIFF but when i try to import tiff it just gives me an error.
