ERIXWORX (TechnicalUser) 6 Jan 10 13:39 I usually add some outline, but be sure to set the outline corners to rounded, or you may wind up with little spikes sticking out of your text.-E 'There is no LEASH LAW for the IMAGINATION!'myspace.com/erixworx RE: how do i make my font look fatter? griffonwing (TechnicalUser) 25 Jan 10 15:53 I do this quite often with my drafting, especially with drafting fonts.STROKE the font you think it too thin.It also might help to kern the spacing between the letters.Perhaps stretching the letter/word width and height.Using all three of these suggestions should get your font looking the way you want.for example, give the font a 3pt stroke, increase the spacing between the letters, then shrink the width of the word.or give the font a 5pt stroke, shrink the spacing between the letters, and stretch the word out longer.
