Thanks for this, it is similar, plus I found another that's even more similar plus one that is exactly like Castor w/o the line art

Time might lead me to nowhere; Fate might break me apart; I'll always be thankful that once, along life's journey I found the unchanging Imperishable in you.

I made a font using FontLab Studio, but I have hideous kerning problems that cause me to manually adjust the kerning between specific letters in InDesign. I'd like to specify unique kerning rules when specific letters are next to each other by default. Are there any FontLab masters here?

Manually adjusting kerning is not a big deal for this font, because it's for my own identity purposes so I don't care. Eventually though I'd like to develop fonts for clients, so I need to figure this problem out.

You can create your own kerning pairs using the metric window:



To make correct kerning pairs you have to adjust those manually anyway. You can also add classes to share kerning (so you don't have to redo kerning for glyphs with similar sides)

Awesome, thanks folks. I've really been into 70s/80s fonts like that lately, but whenever you google exactly that you get about a thousand lovely fonts that are trying really hard to look like they're from that era (and are not)

And no, they couldn't have the Netherlands sign next and just use the right boxes after that and have France and Canada switch places

They probably all signed, and then somebody corrected it (and initialled it)

The Canadian signed incorrectly and then the French guy went to sign, paused in confusion, then signed underneath, as did the next two. The Japanese protested, the US told them they didn't have an extra copy so he just scratched out and initialed the changes. This copy is on display in Japan.

They did in on purpose, to gently caress with the Japanese sense of meticulous order. They giggled too.

I'm supposed to use this font or a very similar one for a client, but I can't figure out what it is. And algorithms to identify fonts are being no help. Anyway familiar with it?

if it's from before 2011 then it's a Bold weight Kabel with a drop shadow

it's too small to see the Tittle over the "i" to tell what exact version it is though. some versions have squares some have diamonds.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kabel_(typeface)

EDIT: I looked up that video and the Tittles are diamonds so I think it's ITC Kabel Bold or Ultra https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/adobe/itc-kabel/

I can't tell from the video properly, but the lowercase "e"s look vaguely different. It's definitely Kabel or a pretend-Kabel, either way.

Kabel ITC, Bold:


I really love Kabel, but using it for anything more than headings is perhaps pushing it.
