I've used High-Logic's but what I had in mind was something a LOT easier to use. Instead of being built for designing typeface styles it would be geared specifically toward designing novel characters, without having to get bogged down in the details of vertices and b-splines. Something that would let you define only the path the penpoint travels in drawing the letter and having the program fill in the details and create the nit-picky details of the letter's outline. Perhaps something similat my Glyphmaker ( ) but with finer detail and a built-in ttf font file creator. --gary
