I know that doing rhinestone fonts is a real pain, and a lot of work. So i will be using typeable fonts from.

    If you go to the first one..customrhinestonedesign, she has a tester file....I think you need to send her an email....I think she is on this forum sometimes as well...Sandy Jo are you here?

    She gives directions here...be sure to have your caps lock on when using the test file:

    I have polygon thinning going in to the next version that makes regular fonts into single stroked fonts... it works pretty well on most fonts including script. Thinning fonts works great for rhinestones.

    Andy, that will be just great. I have "labored" (well not the kind Ann will be doing soon" LOL over getting single line fonts. So happy to see this will be added. Thanks

    Awesome, Andy - but that will just make me stalk the forum even more!

    Just remember that any typable rhinestone fonts have to be resized according to the size of your stone. You can't use one at any other size or it won't work. This is going to end up being pretty limiting if you only stock a few stone sizes.

    i have been using LD teacher's pet and with a little manipulating it looks pretty good

    I'm confused. Wouldn't you just type your word and use the MTC rhinestone feature and select your size of stone?

    No, DukeFan, the typable rhinestone fonts in the original post are already made up of circles, which is why I mentioned it as these are very different from what we are used to.

    Gotcha...I didn't look at the ones in the original post, so I thought they were just single stroke fonts. That's why I was confused.

    Unfortunately, you can't make a true single line True Type Font. By definition TTfs have to be closed path. That's why all these workarounds are necessary. Can't wait to see how Andy's new trace will work!

    MTC handles OTF too... it used to be limited to TTFs only... but not for a while...

    Hmm, haven't found any single line OTFs either (I'm on a Mac so I use them interchangeably). Don't think they can handle open paths either but will definitely check it out.
