Ask Owen blogs on How do I add music symbols to my Word document?.

Musical sharps, flats, and naturals not in the font you’re using? This post covers the Unicode method to insert those symbols anyway. Nice trick for writing about music!

flipping typical, ain’t it, guv?

Posted on April 6, 2009. Filed under: Fonts, Online Software | Tags: , , , , |

flipping typical is, oddly enough, a font display website.  Well — pronounce it “type-ical” if that helps.

It checks the fonts installed on your computer and automatically generates a web page with examples of all of them.

Very simple, no software to download, and you can pick the font you want from what you have available.

Very neat.

Creating Your Own Fonts

Posted on March 13, 2009. Filed under: Fonts, Freeware/Shareware | Tags: , , , , , , |

MakeUseOf has a post on YourFonts.

YourFonts “is a free tool for creating fonts online from your own handwriting….  You simply download and print provided font template sheet. Fill in each character in your own handwriting and then scan and upload the template on to YourFonts.com. After that you can preview your own font online and if you like it download and use it on your computer.”

Another program is Fontstruct, which “is a web-based font generator where you can create your own text fonts. FontStruct is quite flexible and lets you specify the appearance of each letter. Creating fonts doesn’t require any technical knowledge, although it does take some time. Once the font is ready you can instantly save it to your PC and use it on your computer (i.e. office documents) or optionally publish them on FontStruct and share it with others.”

FontForge is “an excellent freeware program that lets you produce custom fonts. The program is slightly more sophisticated when compared with Fontstruct, and it is also teeming with options and tools.”
