New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Years ago I built a bitmap font (ttf outlines) which I would like to use for web embedding in html now.
The font—like most bitmap fonts available back then—was set to be displayed at 8px size which in case of this font is visually roughly an equivalent of 12px Helvetica.
My question is:
Is there an easy way to change the font's metrics so that its px size would be more accurate when used in html?
It still would only have one native size (as it is a bitmap font), but it wouldn't require displaying at 8px in order to be shown at its native 12px anymore.
What metrics should I change?
Thanks for any information.
I've made multiple pdfs from my indesign files and combined them in preview to make one big pdf. I have no problems viewing it in preview but when I or my client try to open it in Acrobat it crashes or gives this error message: Cannot extract the embedded font xxxxx. Some charcters may not display or print correctly.
Does anyone know what the problem is or how to fix it?
Does anyone have experience with embedding fonts for use within an iPhone application. I am looking for technical resources as well as any advice in regards to licensing.
I have a client who wishes to create PDFs for invites. All of these contain type. With Typekit, Font Squirrel, and Font Shop sporting webkits and iPhone apps using fonts for in postcards, etc., are licensing restrictions becoming less strict? Should my client be concerned about embedding type?
