The design decisions become limited by the inability for the arcs to connect to form the letter S in particular. The upper and lower S's here show some options to work within the limitation. WIP. Upper and lowercase for now.

The proper connections can only be created with the advanced filter settings set to 2:2 for both the horizontal and vertical axes. The  Arc Brick 2:2 Sample Font shows more options in brick placement that alleviate some of the limitations found in the 1:1 filter space.

23 downloads23%20downloads232 comments2%20comments255 glyphs55%20glyphs55A favorite of 7 usersA%20favorite%20of%207%20users7This font shows an example of the letterforms created with the new Arc brick with the advanced filter settings at 2:2. 

The 2:2 setting enlarges each brick twice the size on the horizontal and vertical axes. About 90% of everything I work on uses the advanced filter settings. This enables two important things: 
1. Half-brick positioning 
2. Brick overlapping.

The Arc Brick 1:1 Sample Font works with the default filter setting. When switching filters from 1:1 to 2:2, you have four times as many brick placement options. The main thing to deal with in working with bricks using the 2:2 filter is to remember that each brick needs to be handled on the lower left. Since every brick now spans two grid spaces horizontally and vertically in a square, you will need to click and drag bricks from the lower left corner. This can get really confusing with multiple overlapping bricks. 

The brick placement on this font is designed to maximize efficiency, minimizing overlaps to connect each brick cleanly. WIP. Upper and lowercase for now.

A = 1:3
B = 1:4
C = 1:6
D = 1:8
E = 2:3

To create the angles, you have to use the new composite feature. Each letter shows the bricks at the top needed to create the angle piece beneath it. Except for the 2:3, the two middle columns make the angle pieces necessary for the middle part of the 2:3.

I will post some screenshots and better explanations tomorrow.
