For the moment this is the final version of Syngrapheis, reasonably extended. I'll add basic Greek and basic Cyrillic later because I think that the glyph shapes will look good in those writing systems. I've changed the 'g' since the sampler. I wish to offer this version to Google later so if you see any mistakes, strays or breaks etc please let me know.

lc m = 2 n's connected together...

Your Ü with acute has the acute flipped.

Thank you 77, I've changed that accent. Amazing that I missed this :/ I spent well over 60 minutes checking every glyph on every glyph band for errors, strays, wrongly placed composites, unpleasantly connecting lines.

Comment by Aeolien 3rd May 2018

your Capital A is 32 bricks tall...

Comment by anonymous-1520403 3rd May 2018

@ 77: sorry, but I don't understand what you mean to indicate with your comments about the 'm' and the 'A'. What point are you making? I know how tall the glyphs had to be for visual balance; 'm' is often inspired by 'n'. Where do you see a problem?

Comment by Aeolien 3rd May 2018

Lowercase m: Top-Middle: There is an extra vertical line making it look like 2 Lowercase n's connected together. (Fonts don't normally have an extra vertical line in the middle) If I decided to copy the lowercase n twice to the lowercase m and connected them together, I'd recommend modifying the top of the intersection...

A: Indication of the font's height.

You forgotten the real Superscript 0 (⁰).

I'd like to see a square root symbol...

About the DZ digraphs (With and without the caron): Might need a bit more spacing to match the letter spacing...

Also, For the lowercase ǝ, you just turned the e around... When turning a letter around, make sure to modify the thickness so it matches...

I think that the k would look better if it mirrored x—having the top leg above the x-height looks odd to me.

I love the ogoneks on your Os, which, by the way, do not match the other design. I would change them to the O design.

Concerning the cedillas: you have a comma above g, currently, and if you use cedillas, though commas are the preferred design for those characters, they should all match, i.e., g, k, l, n, and r. And d, which is in Latin Extended Additional.

I agree about the Dz, Lj, and Nj digraphs: they should have the same spacing as if you typed the letters separately. No different than Ij.

A lot of the lowercase versions of the characters in LAtin Extended B, used in First Nation and African languages, are in the IPA Extensions, Phonetic Extensions, and Phonetic Extensions Supplement. If you'd like, I could give you a list of all the necessary charcters?

For uppercase K with hook, I mirror B, D, P, and T, i.e., placing the hook on the top left. I put uppercase Ys hook on the right, just like the lowercase. V and W are on the right as well (Latin Extended C).

The Os and Us with horn: they are part of Vietnamese (the remainder are in Latin Extended Additional) and the horn should be attached about 1/4 of the way down from the top. Most designers incorrectly place them at the top.

Yogh: not a huge deal, but the lowercase usually descends.

Glottal stops: the preferred shape for these characters is similar to a rounded or curved 7.

I like you pencils, pens, and hand. :)

Comment by TCWhite 3rd May 2018

@77: thank you, I followed your suggestions, square root symbol to come. Regarding m: I had to teach 'printed letter m' by joining nn; sometimes I think this look fits a font, but I changed it here.

Comment by Aeolien 4th May 2018

@ TCWhite: thank you for your important comment, I appreciate it! I've done O and digraphs; yes please for those further glyphs! Would it be useful to send me details in an email? I'll check your fonts to see cedilla and hook placements.

Comment by Aeolien 4th May 2018

I worry about corrupting this file! I've once lost a large/complex font and had 2 that crashed instead of opening (I was told it can happen because of their size). Already this one takes a while to open in Fontstructor.

Comment by Aeolien 4th May 2018

Yes, I'll email a list, as it will take a bit to put together. Granted, there aren't that many more characters that you need to add. File size is definitely a problem. It also depends on the size of the glyphs. As for the cedilla on g, if you keep the cedillas, simply place it above g, but turned, just like the comma.

Comment by TCWhite 4th May 2018

Thanks TCWhite, I sent you a private message. I look forward to learning more but no need to hurry as I'm working on some different font ideas as well as continuing to adjust this one :)

Comment by Aeolien 4th May 2018

I'm working on the new glyphs; making this design private until I've finished.

Comment by Aeolien 6th May 2018

With a lot of knowledgeable help from TCWhite I've managed to change glyph aspects and add important glyphs. I hope I've got it right. Thank you TCW :)
