    Frances I have started a .xar file that will eventually be a pdf key locator. I've been a bit under the weather for a few days so I have not got much done.

    I agree about using the Burgeon key locator as a template. Which is what I am using.

    I'll volunteer to do the PDF, Frances.

    The key layout and the number of characters is entirely different than for Burgeon. But I can np and tuck the thing, and put all the metadata in it.

    Bill, I await your vfb file!

    My Best,

    Gary

    Thanks Gary, I sent the vfb file to your personal email. Let me know if I need to zip the file as I attached the vfb directly to the email.

    For everyone's information:
    In the Celebrated Burgeon Ornamental TG font there are 60 glyphs. In the Round Head TG font there are 216 glyphs.

    Ok Bill and Gary I'll let you two work out the pdf and the rest of the font building. when I suggested using the burgeon pdf as a guide I was thinking mostly of the headings and basic layout, I realized that there would be way more glyphs for this font

    Will you be posting a "beta" version of the font before we put together the final download file? If so I would like to keep it to a bare minimum (In the burgeon thread I had to go back through the thread twice to remove all the links to un finalized versions at the end)

    Default RoundHead: the fonts and the PDF keyfinder

    Hió

    Fonts in TTF and OTF in one zip archive, the PDF sorta hangs out here by its lonesome.

    Now here's a neat tip you might want to share: the keyfinder isn't just a fancy lookup table: in Acrobat Reader or Pro, you can highlight and copy a glyph out of the PDF page, and if you have the typeface installed, all you do is paste.



    My Best,

    Gary

    Great I'll have a look and kick the tires!

    We will need the change log.txt file, Bill or Gary could one of you do that? I have copies of the OFL and FAQ that I just need to plug the info into.

    And we still need releases from anyone who participated! please post them here in this thread, just scroll back to a release that has already been posted and copy and paste and replace the names and country with your own. And remember if you are uncomfortable with your full name being on the forum you can post one here with your screen name and PM one with your full name to either myself or Barbara.

    Thanks to all who participated in this project!

    I can't help with the FAQ; Bill, would you mind terribly modifying the Burgeon one for this package?

    @Frances: Barbara wants to review the package before you go live with it. Also, she agrees that the keyfinder you can copy out of is a big selling point. You going to do another video?

    I had a quick look and play with the font looks really good!

    I was thinking about doing a video, I just haven't decided on a project yet I have a couple of ideas. The last one has had over 100 views already so that is encouraging

    Also do we need to have all releases in before we can officially release the font?
