Someone looking to contribute code.

The only other use fntforge I can think of that isn’t covered is someone who needs to use FF once, for one task, like generating a font from source, or making distribution builds scripts etc ; we could probably cover that in FAQ links into the Manual. While I’m rewriting I’ll be redoing the screenshots. And would someone volunteer to write some kind of style guides for source itself.

Looks more generic and has better “contrast distribution” to me, of course – this means I see clearly what I need to see distinct, and I’m not hit by excessive contrast where it’s unneeded. Discussions will include endpoint security, mobile security and the latest in malware threats. On Fontgorge, Aug 13, at Both the Adwaita and Sky themes are good candidates for a new default theme.

Also, as I stated before, I object to trying to merge the user fontforg, help reference, and develop docs into a single outline. That being said, I think we should polish the Sky theme a bit more making it ffontforge GTK3 as possibleand make it the default theme.

What do you envision the bibliography covering? The more well done themes, the fomtforge. I think they all need to be using one resource file and window decoration, so that it retains unity through the whole thing and avoids confusion.

If you missed it, I posted a sketch outline of how I would like to rewrite the documentation: I’m also curious where the magic number of pages comes from. In reply to this post by Khaled Hosny In the rosiest of all possible worlds, we’d contribute that sort of material to OFLB’s Guidebook while working on the FF manual; obvious risk is it could still get out of fintforge.

But its a corner case. It should be out properly in a few weeks: I’m not sure exactly what the scope or contents of the will be like, but the purpose, to document things the developers need to know, is clear 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. One of the major failing of the current documentation is that it doesn’t address any of this, and just throws out basic “here are the tools” descriptions.

Should we then purposely group them? On Mon, Aug 13, at 1: A manua, like the “tutorial” now, but covering things more clearly. Then the bibliography would just be collecting all of these into one page.

In reply to this post by Dave Crossland. I would say it roughly breaks down by user role which I know is frighteningly similar to one of those weird “UI designer” buzzword approaches: A user new to Fontforge.

On 13 August So that’s what I’d like to focus on. It would be manuwl to host it internally like Git than on Google Docs, though. And the index really should be covering the whole site I think. Categorizing the links will probably keep the different subjects straight.

Also, Adwaita has succeeded Clearlooks what the Sky theme integrates with in Gnome 3. Same with Panose, weight-classes, etc. In reply to this post by Nathan Willis-4 On 13 August I would put a lot of the advanced terminology topics in the same category Having talked up Fontforge with some other graphic designers this summer, the big hurdle is getting users up to speed on the differences between FF’s editor and a “standard” vector graphics app.

Pretty much the whole process from introduction to fontforge and terminology fonftorge the final, working font.

On Mon, Aug 13, at 4: Might could cover that with parallel sub-chapters: That said, I also made a theme to match Ubuntu Precise: Anyway, I’m going to get started slowly rewriting it all to fit in that scheme. IMO, the screenshots should use the default theme. But I also made it, so take that with a grain of salt. But, I shall say I’m not sure it’s gonna happen.

Fontforge manual

That is exactly what I’m suggesting. Yeah; otherwise we’ll end up with indices, which sort of sounds like a recipe for reader confusion.

The second one would be trickier, since it would involve someone with Fontlab experience writing about the differences.

Sky is a better starting point IMO. In reply to this post by Nathan Willis 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 fonyforge in another section.
