That is exactly what I’m suggesting.

Fontforge manual

I see what you mean. That said, I also made a theme to match Ubuntu Precise: If you missed it, Fontcorge posted a sketch outline of how I would like to rewrite the documentation: They won’t be updated at the same speed nor likely by the same people and keeping them in one document makes it tempting to omit topics thinking that the reader can just look it up in another section. Fontfoorge few immediate observations. Part of this is developer documentation.

So that should also be considered. Categorizing the links will probably keep the different subjects straight.

By the way, should I just post the outlines and plans to this repo or should I put up the new site that’s in the works too? What I would like to do is have a “further reading” at the end of chapters and articles, and contain links to sites, and books to read, related to the chapter or article.

I’ll keep that in mind fonrforge sure.

I agree about the scope stuff; I personally think we ought to keep away from the making-fonts-look-good material — but do so in favor of hosting that sort of stuff at an application-neutral site like OFLB. Someone looking to contribute code.

We’d probably have a hard time finding two people that agree on exactly where to draw manhal lines, of course.

Anyway, I’m going to get started slowly rewriting it all to fit in that scheme. I would say it roughly breaks down by user role which I fontfofge is frighteningly similar to one of those weird “UI designer” buzzword approaches: That being said, I think we should polish the Sky theme a bit more making it as GTK3 fontfoorge possibleand make it the default theme.

Looking at the original website innot much has changed but it’s gotten very much inflated and needs to be restructured. And the index really should be covering the whole site I think. Might could cover that with parallel sub-chapters: A bit like the “tutorial” now, but covering things more clearly.

The more well done themes, the better.

Design With FontForge

While I’m rewriting I’ll be redoing the screenshots. But its a corner case.

The second one would manuual trickier, since it would involve someone with Fontlab experience writing about the differences. In reply to this post by Dave Crossland. Brian Live Security Virtual Conference Exclusive live event will cover all the ways today’s security and threat rontforge has changed and how IT managers can respond. But, I shall say I’m not sure it’s gonna happen.

It would take a reasonable time to read the whole thing i. A user new to Fontforge.
