I know this post is a little bit late, but I just thought that this might help anyone out that just happens to be looking for a 5 by 3 pixel font. The Terminal font has really good 5 by 3 uppercase letters and numbers, however the lowercase letters are not all 5 by 3 pixels (shown with the red line in the image.)

The first question is a lot easier than the second one. 1) The opensource program FontForge can be used to make fonts. The second question doesn't really have an answer - there's a lot of fonts in existence, and there isn't a single directory of every font that has been made through all of history. Services like IdentiFont and WhatTheFont can help identify ...

Assuming you convert these glyphs to outlines, it could be done in vector image editing software such as Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape (which is free). In Inkscape, select the outlines and do Extensions > Modify Path > Jitter Nodes. Select the option to "Shift node handles", and adjust the displacement values as required. In Illustrator a similar effect is ...

What you describe is a normal use as part of a desktop font license. So you would double-check what is allowed in the desktop EULA of that specific font, then buy the license and you can go ahead and sell your posters.

Colored glyphs are not supported by the woff format. OpenType-SVG is the format you should be looking for. It was standardized in 2016, so older software will most likely not support it. For more info read https://www.colorfonts.wtf/

D835+DC4E = 1D44E, that is the first two are surrogate codes used in pair in the UTF-16 encoding to resolve a number greater than 16 bits. So the proper way to add a glyph is to edit 1D44E, not D835 and/or DC4E. Click on Encoding > Reencode > ISO 10646-1 (Unicode, Full). The list of glyphs is now much larger, search for 0x0001D44E and past there the glyph.

Handwriting-likeness cannot be made by randomly moving the nodes of the glyph paths. A little child who tries to make slowly a freehand copy of the outline of a glyph can produce something which can be simulated by randomly moving the nodes of a path and very likely by increasing the number of the nodes. Established handwriting should look consistent which ...

Renogare Font, via dafont.com Note: there are some differentiation between characters because each logo has some formal adjustments like the c in comedy and the extended f 's horizontal and curved stroke to get a better legibility.

Another option — without using a special font file — is to actually draw the symbol from 4 basic rectangles, group these, and copy paste where needed.

As it's a technical symbol, you should look for a font containing such symbols, as Cambria Math font. If copy/paste doesn't help, use the Glyph Panel to look for it: with the insert text cursor active, click twice the symbol at the Glyph panel.

This question is a little old, but this might help others... I noticed that inkscape changes the font sizes along with the font type, so if you want to replace the font for things even if the are different sizes, it will change all the text to one size. I found a workaround for this though. Since SVG is just a XML document, you can open it notepad, search ...
