@CMunk: I've made some tests with Hiragana using the same dot size vs. glyph proportion. I should probably reduce the relative size of the dots to build the more tortuous letters.
I find it very legible. Though, Japanese is not my native language. I have tried some japanese fontstructing, and I am also a bit in doubt about the proportions and alignments. What you have done looks stylish and natural to me.
I give it ten points as well, and I wonder how is hiranga as well... (that's my way of saying I have no idea what "how is hiranga" means)
A better translation would be "How about hiragana?".
@meek: Thank you for the special mention. It was easy to use Fontstructor's Katakana support.
@xenophilius: the filters are set to 2:2. That gives more freedom to position the dots on the grid.
@elmoyenique: Thank you for your comment. Part of the challenge was to follow the subtle curves and angles not found in regular Latin characters. Good luck to your Japanese studies.
@CMunk: I might add one important use of Katakana: the brand names and corporations (Toyota トヨタ, Kawasaki カワサキ).
hiragana No Createing?
minimum : Great! Wonderful ^_^
Christian Munk :Amazing 10point Hiragana is?
@Mitu Try cloning it and making them yourself...
@Mitumitu2017: Thank you for your comments. Midori Dot was created in March 2011 shortly after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. At that time the tools of Fontstruct were much more limited for precisely positioning the dots. Naturally, I've done some tests for a possible Hiragana set, only to conclude it was not feasible at that time. The advent of the Nudge function in May 2014 and its subsequent refinement in 2016 have changed the situation considerably. Today's Fontstruct is very friendly with dot fonts: you can adjust the position of dots in small increments.
Perhaps, it's time to make a new version with Hiragana added.
