I have the Swiss Postscript font __Swiss 721 BT BoldRounded__ but it apparently doesn't come in "Regular" (ie. NOT bolded). So I got to thinking perhaps I could edit this T1 font using FontForge (which I have almost no experience with), and "narrow" the font's weight/stroke.

Is it possible to "shrink" the bolding on a T1 Postscript Font with FontForge? Thanks.

Looking for the title font used in the BBC's "The Secret of Crickley Hall" (2015 TV Mini-Series). More info at

((Paging ESET))

gstunts is correct. don't shoot.

heh heh
uh oh, I see thousands of man hours going to waste once I start this endeavor.

Do I care?

hell no!!!

Not to butt in but since you're here . . . is Fontforge capable of rendering postscript fonts? T1, PS, etc.? see

Hey daaams . . . I really have to thank you for inspiring me to explore the freeware/opensource utilities! Fontforge! hell yeah! Jeez I don't know if I'll be able to fit all of my cooking-related graphics into one font.

Now how did that naughty crab sneak in there heh heh

I can obviously design a graphic but I guess I was looking for a TT/OT/PS font that gathered frequently-used cooking utensils, spices etc. so that the _set_ could be quickly accessed by simply installing the font. Which begs the question:

How hard is it to design a font with just graphics? All the design work I've done over the years, I've never even explored the idea because I've always had such a rich diversity of dingbats it's been an "embarrassment of riches" and if anything I've had too many choices.

I guess I'll explore what's available in Freeware/OpenSource type design. Feel free to suggest any you've used. Thanks daaams.

Thanks daaams. I've also found some free chili peppers and tried them out, but I'm not pleased with the result because not every extra-hot recipe ingredient is a chili. I have flaming letters, as well, but they don't do it for me either. I really need the word HOT with a conspicuous background -- something along the lines of Dan Zadorozny's soundfx.ttf . . . only with the word HOT, HOT! etc.

I'm actually surprised at the paucity of cooking dingbats. We have foods in abundance, but very little focused on the tools used in cooking. Or at least I'm having trouble finding them.

Alternatively, if someone knows of Free WORD dingbats with the word "HOT" I could use that as well. Thanks.

Suggest fonts compatible with this logo...

Most of what I've seen is too "script-like" or italicized. Any help would be greatly appreciated since I don't know where to begin. WhatTheFont was clueless. HELP! lol
