I'm impressed! That must have taken a lot of creative processing.
Yes, the conversions are interesting. Each part of the process takes
time to set up and time to run. Some processes take a few minutes.
Others take hours.
I just created my first TrueType Font this afternoon. I am able to
load all of the SVG Files and apply all of the OpenType features to
the glyph set. The FontForge python scripting takes a few minutes
to run and produces a TTF file that I can install on my computer.
I've successfully created and installed over a dozen TrueType fonts.
When I open the SignWriting Font Test page, I see my symbol image on
the right under the Unicode 8 section.
The left image is from an SVG Server. The middle image is from
Eduardo's font. The right image is from my font with Unicode 8
characters. It works in FireFox, but not Chrome.
I'm not done yet. I have several issues with the SVG data I created
and the OpenType features I defined. I need to recreate all of the
data and fine tune the import process.
As an example, the arrows had issues that I will be able to
address. The middle arrow is from Eduardo's font. Initially, my
image looked the same. I was able to use a different SVG set and
produce the 1-color symbol image on the right. There are several
issues like this throughout the set that I will be able to correct.
By next week, I'm hoping to have a series of 1-color fonts for the
SignWriting symbols. It should work for Unicode 8, Unicode PUA, and
Formal SignWriting. The font file is currently named "iswa2010.ttf"
and it is 4.5 MB large.
After I have the 1-color fonts completed, I will need to package the
