Thanks Boss. It was a bit awkward to scroll so much to read the latest addition.

Comment by elmoyenique Thu, 13th october

Brick subtraction would be a GREAT idea in advanced FontStructions.

Comment by frongile Fri, 28th october

Yes, subtracting bricks has been an oft-made request for at least 9 years now...  ;^)

Comment by Goatmeal Fri, 28th october

I wonder if the ability to create named glyphs would be possible (for example, to create a glyph called ".notdef" to define it oneself)

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) Sat, 29th october

I haven't read all the past threads, so I'm sorry if I repeat something already discussed.

Biggest one: being able to work on an already published typeface without having the changes immediately published on save.

Second one: an overhaul of the basic bricks palette: showing only one per type, with a pull out visual menu to choose the orientation.

Third one, related to brick substraction: invert bricks (black becomes transparent, and transparent becomes black).

Last one: share alike licenses should not be binding for one's own fonts (also, why the public domain dedication has a share alike attached to it?).

Also a "follow" function to be notified of replies on threads where you posted would be neat :-)

@Goatmeal Ha! Great minds and all that :-)

Here's mine from August 2010...

Comment by riccard0 Sat, 29th october

@riccard0 - Nice!  I failed to look outside of the suggetions forums for even older request examples like yours.  :^)

WE NEED THIS

WE HAVE THIS.  It's called "Brick Stacking":

Brick Stacking and Composite Bricks

Comment by Goatmeal Tue, 1st november

oh...

Comment by MimicMakingFonts Tue, 1st november

I have a small suggestion, however niche it possibly might be: A way to jump to a specific Unicode codepoint. Not so much needed when not including CJK Ideographs, Very much needed when including CJK Ideographs. Something like how FontForge does it....

Comment by Satoki Nijikawa (ShinKaiProject) Sat, 5th november

Anyone else experiencing connection issues on the FS website atm?

Font sample rendering errors & slow loading...

Comment by Sed4tives Sun, 6th november

@Sed4tives Yes.

Comment by riccard0 Sun, 6th november

@Sed4tives & @riccard0: Me too, yesterday, but now everything seems fine.

Comment by elmoyenique Sun, 6th november

And as of last hour or so my downoaded *.TTF file for my font somehow is broken. And it seems only PhotoShop is able of truly still making sense of it.

Illustrator, FontLab, notepad nor the FontDrop! webpage displaying the file correctly.

Both FontLab & FontDrop! partially recognize the TTF but deleted glyphs+metrics from any of the Unicode locations leave some sort of trace element within the Font's internal content tables. Ans this results in every of the deleted glyph's and data still internally getting recognized as if being present, hence leaving the these (no longer used) Unicode locations present within the font glyph set, showing as blanks without any grid content or metric data.

And while FontLab is able to access and run most things with the TTF as how it should, The empty glyph locations remain present. As for FontDrop! things have deteriorated next to nothing. And I guess including a screenshot that demonstrates what the heck is wrong will speak more that a thousand words in this case... So hang on!

Comment by Sed4tives Mon, 7th november

@STF Did you, by any chance build glyphs in those slots then delete them? If so, the data remains unless you do remove empty glyphs in the FontStructor?

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) Mon, 7th november

@BWM: Before when you simply removed all brick contents, letter width and kerning values the unicode location becomes free and excluded from the glyph set internally.

Comment by Sed4tives Mon, 7th november

Okay, I can at least confirm that this is only the case for my  BOUWHUIS  font. The others seem to be just fine.

Comment by Sed4tives Tue, 8th november

Again I experience slow loading times here at FS website, images not loading etc..

Comment by Sed4tives Wed, 9th november

Me too. 😟

Comment by elmoyenique Wed, 9th november

Many characters in FS do not have names shown, and many do not even have glyphs. Would it be possible to use a font like Noto Sans to alleviate with this?

Comment by erictom333 Fri, 11th november

Also, the largest scripts, those currently split into blocks of 4096 (like CJK Ideographs and PUA), should be split into smaller blocks of 1024. As this would take up a lot of room in the dropdown box, it would be ideal to make these collapsible.

Comment by erictom333 Fri, 11th november
Comment by erictom333 Fri, 11th november

@erictom333 I don't think a collapsed list in a dropdown list is possible in HTML5.

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) Fri, 11th november

Also, could we get quarter and three quarter arcs? They would significantly help with my font Monospac.

Comment by erictom333 Fri, 18th november

Very interresting read, although its somewhat old in news terms (2018), very interresting contens-wise. It iss an article by BBC WORKLIFE about the cost and trouble for a country to change its entire alphabet.

You can find the articele here:

"The cost of changing an entire country’s alphabet"

Comment by Sed4tives Mon, 28th november

@Sed4tives: Very much interesting article. As a direct precedent, we have Turkey, which already changed its Arabic alphabet to Latin characters in 1928. I would really like to know the opinion on this issue of our comrade architaraz, who is a Kazakh.

Comment by elmoyenique Mon, 28th november

@Sed4tives. I noticed the article. I hope I don't have to add a G-acute to my fonts in the future…

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) Mon, 28th november

Some funny type related mini-games to test your accuracy with things like kerning, shaping letters and more..

Method of Action

Comment by Sed4tives Sun, 4th december

@Sed4tives: Yes, I knew some of them, and even recommended KernType here once. Thank you very much for the fun.

Comment by elmoyenique Sun, 4th december

It would be great to have a button to remove all kerning.

Comment by Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff) Mon, 12th december

Amen to that!!

Comment by Sed4tives Mon, 12th december

Or have option to remove all pairs, or only pairs with a kern value of 0.

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) Mon, 12th december

You know it's a real TP when newbies start commenting random stuff on your FS.

Comment by frongile Tue, 27th december

Why do some people's comments show up in Selected, but not others? And why don't mine?

Comment by erictom333 Tue, 17th january

Something quite unfortunate and potentially problematic matter in regard my Sed4-Type Foundry name and the "STF" visual brand identity it carries came to my knowledge when I recently stumbled upon "Seabell Studio Foundry", a type foundry start-up based in Madrid, and soon to be opening up for business.
After taking a closer look at this other foundry I came to the troubling conclusion that this foundry in many ways is leaps ahead of me in terms of professional and commercial ambitions. And even though in fact I have registered my foundry many years proir to Seabell Studio, it doesn't feel like I could rightfuly feel more entitled to the "STF" identity than Seabell does.

Not because of the fact that there isn't really a case of actual copyright conflicts or anything, which there really isn't, but instead solely judged by the compared level of professionalism and commercial interrest.

Now, that being said, I really don't want to change my entire identity, let alone going through the whole process of adopting a new design routine for this new identity.

Over the last 8 years I've worked hard on building and establishing a consistent meaningful visual brand identity. As a way to centralize the accessibility for available products and to improved consumer recognition the  "STF"  expression was quickly adopted as the simplified trademark for the foundry's visual appearance. Which innitially was nothing more than just the literal abbreviation of the (S)ed4-(T)ype (F)oundry name, but over time evolved into this primary means for visual representation and image as to how the foundry is, and has been presented to the public type design community. To make matters worse, all these years I spend perfecting and personalizing it, turning it into this conceptual simplified blank template for my work. Something that I grew so comfortable with after years. So rather than just being this meaningless name abbreviation, it somewhat is fundamental for the differentiation that symbolizes my work.


But I never truly took things to the next level as was innitially planned by turning this into a successful business, whereas it seems that Seabell has.  

And for that reason I am kind of clueless about what I should do right now, as there are several options, but none of which that fully comes without some form of cons.

I hate the fact that I am no longer unique, and that possibly my work now runs risk of getting confused with the works of another. But I am sure that dropping a proven and effective concept, that I have felt so good with for so long, only to go through the then terrible process of creating and establishing a new one, I probably hate even more.
And I'm tempted to just forget all of this and just continue with the way things are right now, but somehow it ain't feel like the righteous thing to do...


Should I concider the reinvention of myself, or should I just keep whatever I had going for all these time now??

PLEASE HELP ME,

As I am desperate for some advice or healthy perspectives on this issue,

Thanks!

Comment by Sed4tives Mon, 23rd january

@Sed4tives: I am no legal expert, but unless you have registered your company in Spain, I don't think you can claim rights over the STF acronym. Having said that, having to differentiate yourself away from STF may not be the worst thing ever. NSTFW (New Sed4tives Type Foundary Worldwide)—or anything else—may give you the impetus to go commercial. The new handle does not have to be any different than STF, as it is unique in its own right. Reminder: a rose by any other name is still a rose.

Comment by thalamic Tue, 24th january

I wonder if S4TFF would work as well?

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) Tue, 24th january

@Sed4tives: I don't think you should change anything. In fact, I think that those responsible for the Madrid company should have been informed before recently starting to use the name "STF", a name that existed previously and that was very easy to locate in a field as lively as the creation of fonts. For example, I usually do a search on the net every time I have to name one of my fonts to avoid trademarked names... imagine if someone wouldn't do it much more if they had to choose a name to create a company ! In any case, I would contact the Madrid company, present the case and try to reach a mutually beneficial agreement. Ultimately, and only ultimately, you might need to add something to your STF to differentiate it (but why not the Seabell Studio folks change their logo, something like SSTF = Seabell Studio Type Foundry?) ... Do not despair and do not think about abandoning the enormous work and effort that you have gone and continue to develop. Courage and hope, compañero!

Comment by elmoyenique Tue, 24th january

Thanks for the replies fella's, I hope I can make up my mind about it soon! =)

Comment by Sed4tives Wed, 25th january

Custom .notdef character would be great.

The default one is too thin and doesn't fit with the theme of my fonts.

Comment by TNT Tiew Sun, 29th january

@frongile (for your comment of 27/12/2022)

why is my old icon there?

Comment by lucapri Sun, 29th january

@lucapri - Because it is a screenshot of a thread that was captured before you changed it...
