What I Did Today 05/15/15

I’d made 2 fonts using MyScriptFont.com and though they looked nice they still required more tweaking. I decided to buy FontCreator since it’s on sale. Though the line “FontCreator Home Edition can NOT be used for commercial purposes. You have to buy the Standard or Professional Edition instead” still bothers me. I mean, what’s the justification for that? It just feels arbitrary to say, “No, you don’t have the right to sell something you make with this version.” It’s like deciding amongst the different versions of Windows that exist largely so they can charge you more for them.

I also installed it in a Wine Wrapper to cut down on programs running at once.

The only issue I ran into was the Preview window wouldn’t respond to the mouse. I disabled it since I can run a tester that generates lorem ipsum and various other things as well as letting you type. Now I can revise this font and make variants should the need arise. I’ll probably be offering fonts in the future as they’d be perfect weekend projects to take on.
