I’ll keep that in mind for sure. That said, I also made a theme to match Ubuntu Precise: On Mon, Aug 13, at 4: So that’s what I’d like to focus on. I’ve been using the egtk theme from elementary and that fonforge be my preference.

Fontforge manual

I would say it roughly breaks down by user role which I know is frighteningly similar to one of those weird “UI designer” buzzword approaches: Should we then purposely group them?

A few immediate observations. But I also made it, so take that with fonforge grain of salt. In the rosiest of all possible worlds, we’d contribute that sort of material to OFLB’s Guidebook while working on the FF manual; obvious risk is it could still get out of sync. What do you envision the bibliography covering?


Someone looking to contribute code. In reply to this post by Michal Nowakowski.

fontforge(1) – Linux man page

In reply to this post by Nathan Willis In reply to this post by Khaled Hosny-2 On 13 August Possibly scripts, possibly patches. On 13 August On Mon, Aug 13, at 1: I see what you mean. It should be out properly in a few weeks: The focus is getting started on making fonts, so some extra detail will be pulled fontfrge and stuck in other articles and so on.

But as to the theme in question should it be: Discussions will include endpoint security, mobile security and the latest in malware threats. I am going to admit fonhforge I prefer the Adwaita theme because it’s more “vanilla” in flavor than the Sky theme.

Outside the scope is making fonts that look good. In reply to this post by Dave Crossland.

One of the major failing of the current documentation is that it doesn’t address any of this, and just throws out basic “here are the tools” descriptions. But, I shall say I’m not sure it’s gonna happen. I think they all need to be using one resource file and window decoration, so that it retains unity through the whole thing and avoids confusion. Free forum by Nabble. That said, glad to see that we’re starting the discussion in earnest, cause it’s overdue.

Especially when you throw in things like Spiro. By the way, should I just post the outlines and plans to this repo or should I put up the new site that’s in the works too? This is for both dumbed down explanations and advanced or only partly related topics. I guess Vontforge users have different views ; I added lots of its tricks into my Clearlooks theme, but guess that’s not that’s what you meant by ‘polishing’ it: In reply to this post by Nathan Willis-4 On 13 August It would be better to host it internally like Git than on Google Docs, fontfprge.


Anyway, I’m going to get started slowly rewriting it all to fit in that scheme. And the index really should be covering the whole site I think.

Design With FontForge

Looks more generic and has better “contrast distribution” to me, of course – this means I see clearly what I need to see distinct, and I’m not hit by excessive contrast where it’s unneeded. Having talked up Fontforge with some other graphic designers this summer, the big hurdle is fontofrge users up to speed on the differences between FF’s editor and a “standard” vector graphics app.

If you missed it, I posted a sketch outline of how I would like to rewrite the documentation: I’m also curious where the magic number of pages comes from.
