    Thank you! I routinely have to get brochure designs turned around in a couple of hours. Twelve hours for a first proof? Zoinks.

    Yup that's what I used to do for practice. Find a business with a horrible logo and redo it, then apply it to all kinds of things, stationary, billboards, brochures, website. Have fun. Best time when...

  • Fontlab kerning issues

    Can anyone help me with an issue I'm having in Fontlab? I am creating my own font and have pasted all the characters into their metric windows, etc. I've also adjusted the metrics and kerning. The main issue is this: my font is somewhat script-like so the capital "T" and the lowercase "h" appear to be fitted correctly when I type up the word "The" in the metrics window, but when I generate the font, it is not showing up the way that it does in the fontlab program. Basically, the are not fitting together correctly. This is my first time using fontlab and I'm pretty much self taught. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm using this on a PC.

    Most Likely its the program your using. Make sure your "preferences" are set right.
