There are a few ways to reduce the size of a TTF file, but most of them require that you know the consequences, since they are lossy. Firstly, you can subset the font, which means to remove any glyphs (character images) that you don't need. If you have a font that covers several languages and you only need to support one language, then this can be for you. ...

While it would be possible to have several styles inside one OpenType font as Stylistic Sets, it is absolutely unrecommended and you would need to do this manually with professional font design software like FontLab, Glyphs or Robofont. What you probably mean is combining special font files like small caps, tabular numerals, alternates or extended ...

I don't know if you speak Chinese or not, but in case you know what you are doing, you could subset the font and reduce it to the 3000-4000 most used glyphs. This should be enough to render most standard Chinese texts and could significantly reduce the file size (a Chinese font might come with over 20,000 glyphs). Do this only in case you master Chinese at ...

In general: you need to use OpenType features to make “intelligent” automatic replacements. So it needs to be an OpenType font. It can have a TTF or OTF suffix. Taking your Coca-Cola example, there are two ways to achieve this effect: you replace certain strings with ligatures. This can be two characters like Co or entire words (like Cola) or phrases (...

There is no simple way, if any. As opposed to the faux italic that some software can create, Adobe requires you to install an actual font file. This is because, for a lot of typefaces, the italic is very, very different in shape from the roman variant. This is especially true for classic serif types, in which some letter shapes change structure between ...

Harlow Solid from myfonts.com is the base although in your example it seems thinner and less inclined, there are more coincidences than differences.

FontForge can draw circles, but the circle primitive does not exist for font outlines. So they get automatically converted to a somewhat close shape using Bézier curves. While it's possible to approximate a perfect circle with Bézier curves, it is proven to be mathematically impossible. There is no advantage over using either cubic or quadratic curves, as ...

This depends, on the way you made the fonts. Font forge can load your letters, but you need to export them in a format that it can read. I suggest using EPS, although SVG can also work out fine. You need to export each letter separately. You can make the process faster if you save each letter in a file named uni####.eps where the #### is a Unicode code ...

Graphic fonts (icons, logos, etc.) are often assigned to obscure characters that don't correspond to your keyboard. For Keyrune, you can copy/paste the correct characters into illustrator using the reference sheet. If you are working with less documented fonts, use TruFont to view the assigned unicode. It is possible to remap keys using TruFont by copy/...

I think for this time, you have to change all the font size in your document manually. In Microsoft Word and most Adobe programs have character and paragraph styles. In general, you should create styles, set all your formatting rules in a style, and then apply the style throughout your document. In the future, you just need to modify the styles rather ...

There is no such thing as no artboard for the exporter. Make one more artboard that encompasses all your art then export only that artboard. Do the following: Enable aboard tool and draw a new aboard around all your objects, or use the fit artwork bounds option. Then export with art boards option on but specifying only the last art board number in the range
