I cant see my outlines

erinww's picture

Hi everyone,

I have a very script and ornate font that I am trying to generate. Can someone tell me why, when I generate my font, I cannot see the smaller outlines to my font? Also, I might need to pay a company/person to help me generate this font. Can anyone tell me of a company in the L.A. area that can do this for me? Or a freelance Typographer?

Thank you,
Erin

What do you mean - the smaller outlines to my font?

Well, I have a very script font, like Alejandro Paul's caligraphy- where I have a smaller point size for my ornate lines..and when I bring them over I can't see them. I can only see the main body of my character....

sounds like you're copying them over from illustrator and the thin lines of your designs are strokes. Expand everything in illustator before copying it across.

Do you mean that when you're using your generated font in an application the ascenders or descenders are cut off when viewing a few lines of text?

just a thought... do the outlines have closed paths?

Hi everyone, and thank you for all of your responses. No, the ascenders and descenders do show, but the script, ornate outlines do not, just the main body of my characters show. I do not know if the outlines have closed paths, could that be the problem? I will outline before I transfer from Illustrator to Fontlab and see what results I get. Thank you again!
