Anyway, how do I create a font? I want to make one for my conlang. Is there anyway to do it without trying to draw with the mouse on MSPaint? <<<<<< You just missed quite a conversation about fonts. There's no real free way, (unless you're a programmer and can get hold of the TrueType specs) but the best tools are at I have the FontLab and ScanFont programs, as recommended to me by the list, the asking price is quite high, but they're truly incredible. You could probably get by with just ScanFont, if you weren't fussy and your script didn't use "clever" diacritics. You'll probably also need a scanner, but that shouldn't break the bank. Or, as has been suggested in the dim and distant past, you could get some free fax software for your modem and fax yourself the images you wish to turn into fonts. --- Pb ************************************************************* This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
