A font which changes as you use it

28.07.2016 um 11:10

A very long time ago I was working on a computer magazine (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_Computer_World) and I came across a font which programatically changed the shape of the letter as you used it.

I've just bought an Axidraw (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ce35RAMMQug) and thought it would be interesting to use such a font with the device.

But I can't find the font, does anyone know what it is?

Most fonts (e.g., truetype, opentype) can be used.

Not sure what you mean by 'changing as you use it' but if I think right that can be an Opentype font with contextual alternates and/or contextual ligatures features. These kind of fonts contain multiple variations for letters and ligatures and use them variably throughout the text. In other words you get different looks for the same letters. Be aware that bringing these features live requires a software that supports them.

Hope I could help you out!

Hi This is *exactly* what I was after. What are the fonts which support this?

Thanks, I'll investigate that.

It's interesting that since I started this topic the work from UCL has been announced..

I can't name any fonts right now but google 'contextual alternates' and I'm sure you will find some in the tutorials about this feature.

Glad I could be of help! Have fun with that Axidraw of yours!
