Lets have a look then
That's the spirit.
Its a lot of hard work making a font and if you achieve it and you like it that's enough to make it worth while.
I look forward to seeing the finished set Malvolio
Don't let the negativity get you down, just crack on and get it made.
There is no problem whatsoever. My problem was resolved. I even posted this explaining my naivety....

Forgive me if im mistaken, maybe its just not possible and im a little confused. My apologies if that's the case.
I'm just looking at some other fonts in Photoshop and trying them on a black background and they are indeed as you suggest just black without a white fill.
Maybe its just my misconceptions about what is possible
Then I explained the problem was sorted.
Everything else has been crossed wires and nit picking none of which has been necessary.
No wonder this forum is so quiet.
Maybe you should read the thread again and realise its you who's lost the plot
I'm sorry you don't like the solution i found for my problem, lol. Strange guy.

please try to imaginate "your solution" applied to this much complex L image :
- create a font containing only the fill of the L's eye
- apply a black stroke to it
- what is the result ? something looking like SHIT. Not something looking like a L...
How are you having trouble understanding this?
And now you call me an asshole.
You're really not a very nice person are you.
Don't address again, you have nothing of interest for me.

I'm not even sure why you choose this solution. Because if you're willing to add a stroke with Photoshop, why couldn't you use what you had first, and fill it with a white background only inside the shape ?
My apoligies, i only just spotted this question.
The reason i chose this way is because its much quicker to add a stroke to the entire text rather than going to each letter and applying a fill. Also i would have to rasterize the font to do that which would render it uneditable. I hope that makes sense
Thanks again for your ideas and help, its much appreciated.

Daaams was clearly frustrated as he didn't understand what i was try to do, that's all. Its no problem.
Let me try one more time and we'll see if you can catch up....
I had this....
But i wanted this....
That wasn't possible as i learned glyphs can only be one color. So i made my alphabet like this....
And added a stroke in Photoshop and i get....
See? Its not very complicated and its the perfect solution to my problem.
Now stop trying so hard to be right on the internet, it makes you look childish.
I am the one who had a problem. As stated four times already, I have found the solution to my problem.
You are now telling me i have not found the solution.
Yes, i think its safe to say you are not understanding me.
I can achieve that because Photoshop is perfectly capable of adding a stroke to any image/text.
I was about to say origami but its not, sorry.

Using the stroke function in Photoshop will add an outline to any image regardless of how complicated it is, so no, you still haven't made yourself clear.
Yes i did, like i said thanks for the ideas, but im not sure what makes you think black stroke/white letters isn't the perfect solution for the effect im trying to achieve. I've already tested it and its exactly how i want it. I think maybe we are getting our wires crossed.

I don't know sorry, but im a massive Pretty lights fan
The outline set is now redundant in this endeavor and will just serve as a different style in the set.
As i mentioned twice already....
Ikos ha dicho
to create the desired effect i can just apply a black stroke to the white solid type.
Thanks for the ideas/thoughts everyone, its been much appreciated.
I've created two sets, one outline and one solid. As i mentioned before to create the desired effect i can just apply a black stroke to the white solid type.
I seem to be having trouble uploading the finished files to the site so will try again tomorrow.
Hopefully whoever makes the selections will like it enough to add it to the site.
