One family I've recently noticed is the TT Chocolates and the Extra Light looks pretty close to what you need, but note the '1' in the image below is replaced with an uppercase 'i' (as suggested by Chris H in the comments below).

You can try some version Bernhard Gothic. This is Extra Light: It's not free and clearly it has different curves than the tube photo. I guess in your application idea the whole presentation with glows and tube frames will be more important than exact curve forms. It should be enough that the glyphs are plausible, technically possible to be and work in a ...

Possibly worth looking at https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/kinobrand/nixin?tab=glyphs which appears to have been designed as a 'nixie alike' font. Though it puts a foot on the '1' in ultralight(but not on other font weights) and has a closed '4'. And of course it is not free. Of course it depends where your nixie tubes were made... if they are genuine Nixie or ...

Create your own custom font You can easily create your own custom font(s) for this. A quick web search finds FontStruct and Calligrapher are free options, though I have never tried either one myself and I can no longer find what software I used when I did this for fun back in high school. This is closest to the answer you requested, but if you are ...

The characters in your question (k, f, a, and e) are all of the usual suspects when it comes to italicizing a roman typeface. While not all fonts conform to these modifications in their italicized incarnation, these are in fact very traditional transformations and do indeed have precedent. Here are some examples of the various transformations a roman ...

I'm unsure if you are talking about that curved lines appear thicker than straight lines or that horizontal lines appear thicker than vertical lines. This is only about the latter. I found a scientific article called A Thickness Illusion: Horizontal Is Perceived as Thicker than Vertical by de Waard, Van der Burg, and Olivers. It was january 2019 in the ...

The optical adjustment is there to compensate for an illusion that is caused by human perception. Mostly this illusion happens in the visual processing pathway somewhere between your eye and your brain. Now its perfectly understandable that you get the answer use your eyes because thats the only simple answer. Your brain sees the illusion so you should be ...

Personally I would use a dot matrix font for this, because it would be much easier, and look more like your example. There are many available online such as those here. I have no affiliation with that website. Another method is to make a custom pattern in Inkscape, and use the pattern as a fill. This pattern is made of one square with a black fill, and ...

The font is an OpenType font with advanced features such as contextual ligatures and alternates. I think you need to switch that feature on in Word - it's not enabled by default. I don't use Word. Sorry. Try googling "enable opentype contextual ligatures in word".

I've created worksheets of this kind and you have to bear in mind, before anything else, that a handwritten answer is going to take up TWICE as much width as the answer printed, and TWICE as much height vertically, at any normal size of font. Fonts are far more compact than a hand-written answer, so replacing a printed answer with an equivalent width space ...

Ok, gonna attempt an answer now. Inskcape is not font creation software, however you could use it with icomoon. They key here is that fonts must be outlines. They can't contain patterns or fills, or rather I should say these will simply be ignored. What I suggest you do is this: Enable the grid, and Snap to grid, and Snap bounding box corners. Draw one ...

Only a workaround (a complex one) and it's well possible that too complex patterns cause something unexpected: The red shape should be actually black and filled with a pattern. A large enough piece of the pattern is made as tiled clones. Actually a preset fill pattern is released by applying Object > Pattern > Pattern to Objects and the result is tiled. The ...

I don't know the exact font but I have a few ideas for your project (would really like to know what font it is though): Period accurate geometric sans serifs for a jumping off point: Univers - 1957 Futura - 1927 Also a condensed geometric font like Gotham Condensed (based on Futura but made in the 2000s) may give you the effect you want. For the nixie ...

First of all, italic doesn’t exactly mean oblique (a.k.a. slanted). Italics originate from a specific form of cursive handwriting, which usually implies obliqueness, but most importantly implies distinct letter forms (see, e.g., this answer). You cannot really have a semi-italic in that sense, since, e.g., you cannot have a one-and-a-half-storey a. But that ...

Two things: Force Encoding assumes that the glyphs are stored in the order of the respective encoding and converts this. This is only useful if the encoding information for the font is faulty. In all other cases, this does something between nothing and a complete mess. It is no surprise that you cannot find your character. Only use this if you really know ...

Clearly the codepoints don't match. U+2202 in the BMP is supposed to be the Bullet (•), while Devanagari Letter A (अ) is U+00905. There may be some error in the way your program acquires the codepoint, or perhaps the font is malformed -- test this by comparing another Devanagari font. For each, how great is stories.length and how many glyphs does FontForge ...
