In reply to this fonyforge by Dave Crossland. But as to the theme in question should it be: I think we need to decide exactly what the scope and purpose of these separate documents are. I’m somewhat interested in hiding some parts of the documentation until the user unhides it.

Also, as I stated before, I object to trying to merge the user manual, help reference, and develop docs into a single outline.

Especially when you throw in things like Spiro. That being said, I think we should polish the Sky theme a bit more making it as GTK3 as possibleand make it the default theme. I am going to admit that I prefer the Adwaita theme because it’s more “vanilla” in flavor than the Sky theme. Outside the scope is making fonts that look good.


By the way, should I just post the outlines and plans to this repo or should I put up the new site that’s in the works too? I’ll keep that in mind for sure.

Design With FontForge

The only other use case I can think of that isn’t covered is someone who needs to use FF once, for one task, like generating a font from source, or making distribution builds scripts etc ; we could probably cover that in FAQ links into the Manual. Categorizing the links will probably keep the different subjects straight. But its a corner case.

What I would like to do is have a “further reading” at the end of chapters and articles, and contain links to sites, and books to read, related to the chapter or article.

Fontfogre of this is developer documentation. I guess Adwaita users have different views ; I added lots of its tricks into my Clearlooks theme, but guess that’s not that’s what you meant by ‘polishing’ it: And the index really should be covering the whole site I think. That said, I also made a theme to match Ubuntu Precise: IMO, the screenshots should use the default theme.

One of the major failing of the current documentation is that it doesn’t address any of this, and just throws out basic “here are fontorge tools” descriptions.

A few immediate observations. It’s a standard length for books They won’t be updated at the same speed nor likely by the fontfoge people and keeping them in one document makes it tempting to omit topics thinking that the reader can just look it up in another section.

Developer – Fontforge manual

In reply to this post by Nathan Willis Looks more generic and has better “contrast distribution” to me, of course – this means I see clearly what I need to see distinct, and I’m not hit by excessive contrast where it’s unneeded. If you missed it, I posted a sketch outline of how I would like to rewrite the documentation:.

This is missing sections on: I would put a lot of the advanced terminology topics in the same mahual So that’s what I’d like to focus on. Should we then purposely group them?

I would say it roughly breaks down by user role which I know is frighteningly similar to one of those weird “UI designer” buzzword approaches: On 13 August The Adwaita theme I made should be updated a bit to use some of the new options, and it needs to be updated for a few other reasons regardless.
