One thing for sure, is that nobody likes bumps after only 6 hours
Sorry, but LOL.
Piracy is piracy, period. If you have another word for "getting a commercial font without paying", feel free to suggest.
Nobody has compared a font with a car or a house. At least not in this thread, and when I'm doing it ("trying to download a car from the internet"), it's obviously to make fun, and not to be taken seriously.
Imagine. Your job is to create an item. You spend hours, days, weeks, maybe even months creating this item. And when the moment has come, you're putting your item for sale, and you expect to earn something with it - after all, it's your job. And suddenly, someone is making an exact copy - which is illegal, there are laws in this world - and gives your item for free. How will you feel when you have to pay the bills ? When you have to eat ?
If you don't have the money to buy a commercial font, you don't have to steal it. You will always be able to legally find a very, very similar free font. There are so many lookalikes, there's no need to steal. You can come here and ask for similar free fonts, people will always be able to help you, and suggest a lot of things you wouldn't even imagine.
Usually, fonts aren't expensive. I mean, you can get great fonts for $1 to $20. Of course, there are font families that cost a lot more (if one day you try to create a complete font, which has accented characters from all over the world, and a lot of foreign alphabets, trust me, you'll realize why fonts can be expensive). And once you buy a font, it lasts forever. So it's money well spent, with a product that can be used again and again and again, forever. Think about all the stuff you don't really need, that cost approximately the same price as a font, and that you might have in your closet, room, apartment. How about a cup of coffee at Starbucks ? A few bucks that will last only 5 minutes.
Now, I'm not blaming you, make no mistake. I understand how you feel, many people think the same. But that's also because they are not really interested in the font scene. Maybe it's a "generation" thing, being used to get free things over the internet. But you have to realize that stealing isn't necessary. Like you say, a font isn't something you NEED to live life, and you're absolutely right. So next time you'll find yourself in the situation of trying to steal a commercial font, think twice, and try to find a legally free alternative.
Merci de ne pas créer de doublons, et de patienter au moins 24h avant de remonter un sujet.
Without a few bottles, I don't see how we could know which font to choose
More seriously, choosing a font for a specific use is something very personal. Is it for a header ? Body text ? For a restaurant, museum, supermarket, tourist office, anything else ?
At 9:24 AM, I can't realize if there are several fonts in one video, coffee takes time to spread in my panda body
Je cale, désolé ça dépasse mes compétences.
Cependant, et même si la démarche de comprendre comment tout ça fonctionne est excellente de ta part, je pense par exemple à une limitation importante : Imaginons que tu arrives à créer une police en exploitant les règles de substitution liées au Chinois, cela voudrait dire que toutes les personnes qui voudront utiliser ta police devront installer le clavier Chinois chez eux. Ou alors, comme Claude le dit, que tu fasses un clavier "musique", mais pareil, si tant est que ce soit exportable, ça devra être installé par tous ceux qui voudront l'utiliser.
L'idée d'une fonte façon Chartwell n'est peut-être pas nulle, mais ça demanderait un temps énorme, pour les 500 accords. Seul problème, ça ne correspond pas à ton idée d'afficher les possibilités d'un même accord, en même temps.
All times are CEST. The time is now 13:34
