  • outlined fonts

    Do you loose any quality or perfectness when turning your fonts to outlines for a printer/press?
    Wouldn't it mess up small body copy a little?
    Isn't it better to send PDF or orig. file with fonts instead of orig. outlined?

    Outlining your fonts will make them slightly thicker/bolder - it doesn't make any difference if the type is bigger, but on smaller body copy you may notice a change.

    Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken.
    Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

      That's sort of what I thought. So 540pt. type will increase in size the same amount as 7pt. ?

        The more text you have to outline the larger the file will be too. Can make emailing difficult.

          I set my Siri voice to a British dude. So far I've only used him as a timer, lol.

          It also seems they've dropped using the term OS X in favor of macOS.

          As for Siri, I've only found it marginally useful on my iPhone since it's often easier to speak than type things out on...

          Amen. I'm in an open layout and it's horrid. Even if your computer only recognized your voice (when I got my phone they had me say Hey Siri a billion times so my phone only responds when I speak to it),...
