Someone looking to contribute code. That is exactly what I’m suggesting.

fontforge(1) – Linux man page

A user currently using Fontforge. While I’m rewriting I’ll be redoing the screenshots.

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 mahual of hosting that sort of stuff at an application-neutral site like OFLB. Categorizing the links will probably keep the different subjects straight. It should be out properly in a few weeks: I agree the screenshots should show the default theme, and that the default theme should change before creating the screenshots: Looks more generic and has better “contrast distribution” to me, of ofntforge – this means I see clearly what I need to see distinct, and I’m not hit by excessive contrast where it’s unneeded.

amnual 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. In reply to this post by Dave Crossland.

We’d probably have a hard time finding two people that agree on exactly where to draw those lines, of course.

On Mon, Aug 13, at 1: This is for both dumbed down explanations and advanced or only partly related topics. But, I shall say I’m not sure it’s gonna happen.

So that’s what I’d like to focus on. What I would like to do is 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.

Developer – Fontforge manual

IMO, the screenshots should use the default theme. Also, Adwaita has succeeded Clearlooks what the Sky theme integrates manjal in Gnome 3. 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 sync.

I would say it roughly breaks down by janual role which I know is frighteningly similar to one of those weird “UI designer” buzzword approaches: I see what you mean. I’m also curious where the magic number of pages comes from. Outside the scope is making fonts that look good.

Looking at the original website innot much has changed but it’s gotten very much inflated and needs to be restructured. 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 up in another section.


In reply to this post by Khaled Hosny-2 On 13 August I would put a lot of the advanced terminology topics in the same category 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 This is missing sections on: But its a corner case.

Also, as I stated before, Manuzl object to trying to merge the user manual, help reference, and develop docs into a single outline. It’s a standard length for books I guess Adwaita users have different views ; I added lots of its tricks into my Clearlooks theme, but guess that’s not that’s what you meant by ‘polishing’ it: Free forum by Nabble.
