Font Lettering - Writing software

  HowardMoon 12:56 24 Jul 2007


I have been looking at all the different styles of Font lettering and it's got me thinking, when i have to write a letter to someone i would love to write the letter using one of the styles, I really like the Adinekirnberg regular.

I have the boring wordpad & Notepad is there a software i can get that lets you write in this wonderful lettering.

From the format menu choose font.

WordPad is a perfectly adequate medium for those who wish to do basic letter writing etc.

Word is first class, but most people only use about two to five per cent of its capabilities.

I use this little program which I got from W.H.Smith on a CD Rom click here

Integrates with M/Soft office apps, I use it with the OpenOffice suite.

Forgot to mention, click on the font catalogue link which is in pdf format to get a preview.

If the recipient of something generated with an 'unusual' font gets that work as an electronic file and they don't have the original font on their machine, the receiving machine will choose something different to what you did!

If you're doing it as hard copy, no problem.

Yes, a very good point!
