comment Can someone Help me Identify this Font?
Yep, it's a custom font. If anything - you can use Lexia or Foro Medium as a base.

comment Digitize notepad to PDF (ebook) while preserving typography
As I said - transparent text on top of scanned page in PDF. I just look for some semi-automated solution that wouldn't force me to sit on every page in illustrator.

comment Digitize notepad to PDF (ebook) while preserving typography
I can do that in illustrator - just image with transparent text on top of it. And I've seen E-book done like that some time ago, so it certainly is possible. Re-read my question please, I'm not asking if it is possible or how to make custom font.

comment Handwriting font that at random picks characters?
Yep. Other than that - I don't know any font format that would support randomization of characters.

comment How to access the system color scheme from CSS?
Yea, it's something you never use in a styling of a websites, so no surprise really :) Ages ago I had a client who wanted to have his website done in Windows '95 style (complete shit - even more so as we were in XP age back then) - so that's how I learnt about that.

comment Suitable font for headline to go with Verdana as body copy (dark design)?
1) just type in your CSS sans-serif - that will cover all angles. 2) avoid using font size defined in pixels - use percentage or em (stackexchange uses font size defined as 100%) 3) 15px is quite a huge font for a body text on website, it will be exhausting to read, especially if you have a lot of text. I wouldn't recommend going over 14px equivalent.

comment Animating 3 minute countdown timer in Photoshop
Yes, that's pretty much the only way you can achieve that effect in Photoshop. Sorry if you expected any automation.

comment How to quickly create multi-page layout presentation? (image maps?)
Not to bad. Only 300$ is a little bit steep for a tool that will do for me a same thing imagemap can do.

comment Fonts used by The New Yorker's iOS app?
@Drux I'm still surprised there are people not knowing it. :) Even tag description for "font-identification" you used clearly points to the WhatTheFont first.

comment Unicode character that conveys 'synchronization'?
@brnnnrsmssn I'd argue that using CSS for getting desired character is by far better way than suggested combined diacritics from Google Chrome, as it's far more robust when it comes to cross-browser support. CSS3 is by far more broadly accepted standard. Though obviously: If you don't use these for a website than there's no issue.

comment Unicode character that conveys 'synchronization'?
"They're characters that modify the character before them. They're used a lot in European languages" - European languages got their own characters. Noone is using combined diacritics like that.

@user568458 - no idea what you mean by that. I can't make it work like you describe.

@yisela - I already did, right after posting the comment - but instead of throwing it as an additional answer I simply edited this one :) See the bottom part of it, below the horizontal line.

comment How to smooth it out/add curves less jagged edges and illustrator
Sadly - you need to overpaint, there's no easy solution other than that. (use pixel image as background and draw vector shapes on top of it)

comment How to design a websites using thin fonts that will look good in a web browser?
@plainclothes usually webfonts are already optimized for browsers (hence the name: WEBfonts), so you very rarely stumble upon any issues with them. Especially if you use some serious provider for them, not just random-stuff-found-on-random-website ;). Where issues occur are desktop fonts as that's the majority of the really good fonts in use currently.

@user568458 - looks brilliant! That's perfect. Should be more then good and easy enough for designer to test the fonts. Cheers!

comment How to design a websites using thin fonts that will look good in a web browser?
Yes, I'm well aware of that, and that's the way I prefer to work, but the whole issue came out from the fact that the designers are few hundred miles away and there's hardly any way they could coordinate development all the way along with Dev team. Especially when dev team got it's own assignments. I know it's doable to create a tool that would allow simulating a behaviour of fonts in web browser, to actually predict if font behaves nicely or not, but I'm wondering if someone haven't made something like that already?

comment How to design a websites using thin fonts that will look good in a web browser?
Yes, it is, but aiming at one target makes it easier to achieve it, so that later on I could consider covering additional targets. That's why I make websites in 1 browser and one 1 OS later on checking it and fixing on other OSes and other browsers. Covering all the bases all the way is nothing else then a waste of time.
