- Q: How can I
use this font in AOL Instant Messenger,
MSN Messenger, Outlook, Outlook Express, Euodora or any other email software?
- A: At the
time of this writing (October 2004) you canít. After installing one of my
fonts, you may be able to select it in the above applications but the
person at the other end wonít see that same thing unless they have the
font installed. If you really want to use my fonts in these applications,
make sure the people at the other end have the same fonts installed.
- Q: How can I
use these fonts on a web page?
- A: If youíre
creating a web page using Flash, itís easy. Consult your Flash manual. If
youíre using Acrobat,
make sure the font embedding settings are turned on. Consult your Acrobat
manual. For anything else there are limitations: If you want to use one of
my fonts as your main, text font youíre pretty much out of luck unless you
explore a font embedding tool such as WEFT
but I donít recommend it. To use my fonts as headings or titles, use image
creation software such as The Gimp, Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Pixia etc. Save the images
as GIF files and place them on your web page. Thereís a lot more to it
than can be explained here but there are countless books available on web
- Q: How can I
make these fonts bigger?
- A: All my
fonts are infinitely scalable; the limitations are in your software. A
common problem is scaling fonts in Microsoft Word. If you choose Format /
Font you can type in any number you like under ďsizeĒ.
- Q: Are these
fonts really free?
- A: Yes they
- Q: I saw this
font on another web site under the name Larabie Fonts, why is it listed as
- A: Larabie
Fonts and Typodermic were both started by Ray Larabie. This font may have been originally released
under Larabie Fonts. Before Typodermic existed, several freeware fonts
from Larabie Fonts had expanded families available sold as Deluxe
versions. When Typodermic came into existence in 2001, the Deluxe
fonts were gradually renamed and moved to the Typodermic foundry.
- Q: Is this
font the same as the ďpayĒ version of the font? For example: is Zekton
Free the same as Zekton regular?
- A: Yes. There
is no difference in the quality or completeness between the †free version
and the pay version; only the name and license agreement is different. If
you downloaded this font from a site other then Typodermic or MyFonts.com,
you should visit Typodermic and download the latest version.
- Q: Why would
I pay for this font when I already have it for free?
- A: If you
visit Typodermic you can see the difference. The version of the font for
sale comes with several different styles, making it much more versatile.
You can purchase the whole font family for what some foundries charge for
a single font!
- Q: Your
licence agreement states that the fonts canít be altered. Does that mean I
canít mess around with your fonts in Photoshop/Illustrator/Publisher etc?
- A: Those
license restrictions refer to altering the actual fonts themselves, not
what you make with them. As long as you donít alter the font files in font
creation software such as FontLab or Fontographer youíre free to create
anything you like with them.
- Q: Can I use
your fonts in a logo?
- A: Yes. But
check with a lawyer if youíre not sure. Itís okay with me if you use it
but do so at your own risk.
- Q: Can I send
you a sample of the nifty thing I created with your fonts?
- A: Of course.
for my current email or mailing address.
- Q: I want to
sell rubber stamp alphabets, alphabet punches or stencil alphabets using
your font designs.
- A: Contact me
first at www.typodermic.com/about.html.
- Q: My
software wonít let me embed one of your fonts.
- A: You may
have an old version of one of the fonts from Larabie Fonts. Uninstall it
and install a current version.
- Q: Can you
help me find a font?
- A: Yes, but
donít email me with your question. Please post your question on the
Larabie Fonts font forum: www.larabiefonts.com/info.html.
