Looking at the original website innot much has changed but it’s gotten very much inflated and needs to be restructured. 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. It’s a standard length for books Free forum by Nabble. Someone looking to contribute code. Categorizing the fntforge will probably keep the different subjects straight.
But, I shall say I’m not sure it’s gonna happen. But its a corner case.
manuaal I see what you mean. But as to the theme in question should it be: I’m also curious where the magic number of pages comes from. That’s a lengthy process: I agree the screenshots should show the default theme, and that the default theme should change before creating the screenshots: 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: Outside the scope is making fonts that look good.
What I would like to do fonyforge 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.

A user currently using Fontforge. In reply to this post by Dave Crossland. A user new to Fontforge. A bit like the “tutorial” now, but covering things more clearly. On Mon, Aug 13, at 4: Brian Live Security Virtual Conference Exclusive live event will cover all the ways today’s security and threat landscape has changed and how IT managers can respond.
The focus is getting started on making fonts, so some extra detail will be pulled out and stuck in other articles and so on.
I’ve been using the egtk theme from elementary and that would be my preference. IMO, the screenshots should use the default theme. In reply to this mmanual by Khaled Hosny So that’s what I’d like to focus on. This is for both dumbed down explanations and advanced or only partly related topics.
In reply to this post fotforge Nathan Willis-4 On 13 August If you missed it, I posted a maual outline of how I would like to rewrite the documentation: And the index really should be covering the whole site I think.
In reply to this post by Nathan Willis Search everywhere only in this topic. Possibly scripts, fontorge patches. In reply to this post by Khaled Hosny-2 On 13 August 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’ll keep that in mind for sure.
Might could cover that with parallel sub-chapters: It would take a reasonable time to read the whole thing i. I’m manul interested in hiding some parts of the documentation until the user unhides it. On 13 August The only other use case 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.
Also, as I stated before, I object to trying to merge the user manual, help reference, and develop docs into fkntforge single outline. I think we need to decide exactly what the scope and purpose of these separate documents are. Sky is a better starting point IMO.
In reply to this post by Michal Nowakowski. On Mon, Aug 13, at 1: If you missed it, I posted a sketch outline of how I would like to rewrite the documentation:. 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.
Part of this is developer documentation. Anyway, I’m going to get started slowly rewriting it all to fit in that scheme.
That is exactly what I’m suggesting.
