    Default Fonts

    Hi,

    Can someone direct me to a site that would have:

    1. A font that would look like soap on glass storefront wiindows?

    2. A font that would look like chalk on a blackboard? Namely sidewalk sandwich boards?

    Thanks.

    Hi Doug,

    A quick search turned up a ton - here's a bunch - note - haven't tested them or this site:

    Chalk:

    I think a Magic Marker font is about as close to soap on glass as you'll get.

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks, the site didn't try to install anything.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks, I've got them bookmarked now.

    Some of the Chalk fonts look like they will work for Soap. They appear to represent Chalk blocks, rather than Chalk sticks from school.

    The last link has several pages for markers, might be something you can use on another page.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks I did download several.

    A couple of these have "holes" inside the white but they aren't going to show well here. I also forgot I made the text bold, so that tends to wipe out the spaces.

    BTW, when did the cent sign disappear from computer Keyboards?

    You should be able to get the cent sign using Character Map, which is somewhere in Accesories, off the start menu

    For the holes in some characters, ungroup them then select the hole and delete it, then you have the bigger hole and the letter, just combine them.

    Hi,
    To print the cent sign in a document, press and hold <Alt> and type 0162 on the NumPad (NOT the top row of numbers!) = ¢

    Cheers,
    Ged

    Hi All,

    Travis, Thanks. This makes me wish I still had the books for a Windows 3.1, 486 SX I once had. 5 x 8 inches but almost 2 inches thick. After you mentioned the Character Map, I did remember there was a section about that in there.

    Paul, We must have different programs that can manipulate characters. If I did that (delete the points) in the two I can do that with, I end up losing the hole. Interesting, which program are you using?

    Ged, It depends on the font set what number to type. After Travis's post I went and checked the fonts I used. Some did a cent sign, but it's a different number, some didn't even do numbers. Only one of 8 had the cent sign at 0162. I just have to check the character map first for the particular font.
