Cynthia Handwriting 1.503 by unjamie Cynthia Handwriting 1.503 by unjamie
The download (in the toolbar up there since deviantART 7) is a ZIP file containing a family of TrueType files (regular, italic, bold, bold italic), usable on Windows, Linux and Mac OS.

Kana and the 11172 hangeul syllables are proportional. Digits are fixed width. Spaces and dashes behave as a typesetter would expect, except that there's kerning around spaces on certain characters.

— This deviation uses the excellent Lines paper by Ginnyhaha-Stock, as well as the open-source program FontForge, by George Williams. Thanks! :D

* This version covers 13519 Unicode codepoints.
* Contributed by Eddierebel.
* Created Љ U+0409, Џ U+040F and џ U+045F, used in Macedonian, and modified Д U+0414, д U+0434 and б U+0431 to be less ambiguous.

* This version covers 13516 Unicode codepoints.
* Created 🄰 U+1F130 to 🅉 U+1F149, the squared capital Latin letters, as well as 🅰 U+1F170 to 🆉 U+1F189, the white Latin letters in black squares.
* Metrics modified for U+0001 to U+001F, the control characters. Made them use glyphs looking like ^A through ^_ instead of the squared letters, which now live at and after U+1F130.

cynthia-handwriting (1.501); urgency=low
* This version covers 13464 Unicode codepoints.
* Redo ₀ to ₉, as well as ⁰ to ⁹. Create the control-character symbols at U+2400 (␀) to U+2421 (␡) and U+2424 ␤. Recreate ¼, ½, ¾. Create ⅐ to ⅟, ⓿, ⚭, ⌙, ⌐, ◯, ●, ⬛, ⬜, □, ▪, ▫, ◧, ◨, ◻, ◼, ◽, ◾, ⬤, ⁱ, ⁺, ⁻, ⁼, ⁽, ⁾, ⁿ, ₊, ₋, ₌, ₍, ₎.

* New release: the "Frigid Glacier" edition. This version covers 13379 Unicode codepoints.
* Create the italic, bold and bold italic variants of the font using a fully-automated script, to appear closer to how I write bold by hand. This means that the bold and bold italic variants have had their metrics changed.
* Create 💬 U+1F4AC Speech bubble.
* Create hangeul syllables at 가 U+AC00 to 힣 U+D7A3; kerning for these is not final.
* Work around LibreOffice making the line spacing of this font way too high. Conversely, Windows may truncate the top and bottom of hangeul syllables.

* Create a variant of the letter 'a'.
* Add the OpenType tables smcp (Small Caps), c2sc (Caps to Small Caps) and tnum (Tabular/Fixed-Width Digits).

Very pretty, wish I could write like this, because then I'd have neater handwriting and I'd be able to read my notes much, much easier. Mine are still readable, but yours is definitely outmatching mine. c;

This font is very pleasing to look at, and I am reminded of my own handwriting, though mine isn't anywhere near as neat as yours. You did a really great job with this font. :D
