In last week article we are going to take you through the steps of making your own College font, with TAJIMA DGML by Pulse 14 , however the process is similar in Tajima DGML by Pulse 13, and DG15. 1. Start a New Blank document in your embroidery digitizing program. 2. Goto tools , Manage and click on Fonts , and click on New at the bottom left of the pop up window.. When you click the NEW option underlined in red above , you will need to put in your name or company name, choose what settings you want , I always have it contain outlines, use bottom for baseline and leave the other options untouched. I recommend for your first couple of fonts using the option of TTF (True Type Font) there are other options if you want to create your own individual letters you can make them and turn them into fonts too. But for this tutorial we will use TTF Fonts. Next you will need to select your fonts , I am using HIGH SCHOOL USA SERIF its a free font TTF font from Font Space. Then you can click next and high light all the upper case, lower case and special characters you want your font to have. Click Next. On the next page I recommend that you select all the options. Now click Finished at it will start to add the charaters to the font, and when its finished they will show up in your window like the example below. Sometimes you will get lucky and not have to edit any or only a few letters, now we can turn the 3d view on and take a closer look at some of the letters. To view individual letters double click them and it will open up into a new window. Never delete the extent boxes or the artwork.. In this screen I always check the angle lines and make sure each letter is correct, you edit them just like any other embroidery designs. Close and save the work and repeat this process until all letter have been proofed. ADD CHARACTERS As long as you own the rights to the font you can add more characters to the font. Pulse fonts are secured and you cannot edit them. PACK THE FONT This refers to the final step of the font making it active in your software, any changes made you will need to pack the font to update them. FONT PROPERTIES This is where you can change the internal setting spacing of the fonts and other parameters. KERNING THE LETTERS This option is non commonly used, its for advanced users that understand the extent boxes, and it require knowing the hexdecimal code and being able to load the font file to the kerning then you can go in and set the spacing between two letter. Most fonts do not need this.. with the exception of Fancy fonts , Chenille fonts or Monogram fonts. Reference letter, In every font you should pick the widest letter or number and make it the reference letter this is for kerning and spacing of all the letter, Normally the W or M are the widest letters in the Font so right click on the W and choose set as reference letter. Now we are ready to save the pack the font, save the font and exit the embroidery digitizing software. Open the software up, goto a new document add some text and choose the font you made. And now your ready to add some pull comp underlay and you can start testing the font. Congratulations ! Author: Frank Prokator
I need to use the bold and italic styles for the Georgia font in the true type fonts. Can anyone please explain how to do this. When I switch over to my true type fonts, I don't have a fly out tab for bolds and italic like I do in Corel.Draw Thanks,
I have downloaded several true type fonts from the internet. Every time I use one of them my Wins Xp program freezes and I have to close it down. Has anyone had issues along this line and if so, what can I do to prevent this from happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
