Asking for a quick HOW-TO for creating alternative letters when placed next to eachother.

22/07/2012 a las 13:46

This, I think, is the prime example of what I'm trying to explain.
http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/schizotype/toothpaste/

This free font also has some neat characters that use the .. process? option? technique? thingy: http://www.dafont.com/woodstamp.font (you can't test or see the characters I'm referring to in the preview, example: lowercase "er")

Every letter is able to connect to every other letter seamlessly (so it looks custom made) but I have yet to figure out how to do this and I don't know if the option has a specific name to even begin searching how to get started.

I use Highlogic's Font Creator mainly, and have an old version of Font Lab.. I am tired of having to use the same letters especially when placed next to eachother - when the font has textures and designs it can get pretty ugly/repetitive.


Any tips would be nice, thank you.

Hi Andrew,

Some people might be able to explain much better than me, but maybe you could check this out ? I hope it can help you

Woodstamp.otf has a lot of ligatures like that 'er'. In Font Creator you can of course make those sort of ligatures too but you need some external (free) programs to make it an otf font so that these ligatures will be recognized.
Read this. Take your time

I do not know if Font Creator can make multiple substitution or chaining contextual subtitution.

No, Claude, it can't. Font Creator is (still) ttf orientated, not otf. The developer states that they will only make a move to otf when there are enough programs available that are otf aware.

ttf or otf have the same subtitution.

As far as I know Font Creator doesn't create the substitution tables.
