New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hello all! I am new to this forum and maybe I guess it's a bit ugly to go straight on to announce a project I am working on. But I hope you might think this is interesting and therefore can forgive me :) It is an iOS app called Font Drafts, designed to boost the font sketching process and I am currently looking for beta testers. If anyone of you are interested, please sign up at the website: http://fontdrafts.com
This seems like a great forum by the way, so I think I might hang around a bit more :)
Pretty basic question, but I couldn't find an answer. Here it is:
I'm expanding a typeface to include old style numerals and small capitals. I have a draft of all these glyphs drawn in FontLab. How would you go about proofing these? I see that you can print up glyph tables in FontLab, but I'm wondering if there is an effective way to create specimen sheets with all these new glyphs in the context of the larger typeface? Ideally, I'd like to print them out. Thank you,
The Font Testing Page is a tool primarily intended for type designers and independent foundries. It can also be used by art directors, graphic designers, teachers and students interested in seeing how a typeface works on the web.
There is a short video at:
Operation is simple:
