Hello all,

I found this image in an old french book of lettres. I was wondering if it could be desaturated and made into a font somehow. I do not have the resources or the know-how to do this. If you're able to do this and don't mind, I'd be very appreciative if you could send me over the .otf or .ttf file.


Fonzo's picture

Slash and backslash


I have a doubt, and I'll thank you all if you can help me with it.

Is there a correct position to slash and backslash?
I'm seeing some typefaces with them long enough until descenders, some just from baseline, and some in beetween.

Depend on function, history, or just taste?

Thank you.


I´ve started a quite interesting project on a font face that I´ve called "Drops", but I´m not skilled enough to
set the font as a working type face. It´s also not quite finished, so I´m looking for someone who´s interested in
finishing it for me.
You will be appointed as collaberative founder, and you will get paid by me if you can do the job right :)
Here´s a sample, let me know if you´re interested and I´ll show you the whole story...


Hi to all,

I am building a code font using Font Creator ... I am amazed how easy this software is to use (so far). One of the elements of the 'code' is to replace all the glyphs with alternates, including the 'carriage return' or 'enter'. So far, I haven't found a way, and wondering if it is even possible.

In application, I would simply take recognizable test, and within other applications, change the font to the 'code' font.

Any thoughts or help to this novice would be most appreciated.

Kind regards ...

Hello Typophiles,

I've got a little problem.

I've submitted a font to a retailer and everything is OK - except the following message that I just received:

"When I install the font in Mac OS X (I used 10.4), the character preview in Font Book is completely blank."

As I work on PC I not really know what would be the problem. Export setting related? Other?

Could someone please help me or suggest something to try?

Maybe it is a simple problem, but I just know what would cause this.

Many thanks in advance.
