Hey there,

I'm searching for single line fonts on Adobe Fonts and can't find any. Am I doing something wrong or is there none? I need a font to prepare an engraving.

Thanks in advance!

Nico

All the fonts are OpenType and I don't think single line fonts actually exist in OpenType form. It's always a filled shape. May be wrong though.

Engraving? Do you want to set an outline of the text (no fill, just outline? This example is from Adobe Blue Book at 97:

/Helvetica-Bold findfont
30 scalefont setfont

/oshow %stack: (string)
{ true charpath stroke }

def

(String to print) oshow

showpage

Combined with a .N setgray in a gsave/grestore pair, it is hugely useful for engraving/signage, etc.

Hi John, thank's for your replay. Yes, engraving with a Shaper Origin. Simply said, I am looking for a way to generate the "center lines of a font". So that each letter consists of individual lines, not an outline, not an area.

Sounds very interessting to me. But I don't understand where to put the code. And what is the Adobe Blue Book?
