This opening paragraph should describe the feature that you are documenting. Explain how it is commonly used and what the benefits are. For example: The Widget Master email link allows you to easily send information about each widget to various departments within your company. Often, the feature that you are documenting can be best explained by walking the reader through step by step. Use screenshots to illustrate the steps where possible.

Step One (Print Template)  

The first thing to do is print the template. We have it available in a PDF document. To make optimal use of the size of your paper, we recommend you print out the PDF document.

Step Two (Fill Out Template) 

Use a Suitable Pen (e.g. a black permanent marker of fine or medium thickness) to draw the characters the way that you normally write. Make sure you draw your characters within the designated cells.

Only Characters that are written down on the template are added to the font, so if you only need a few characters, then only write those down. If you don't want accented characters, you can skip page two of the template.

All cells (except the signature cell) contain horizontal guidelines (actuallt for little marks on both left and right side of each cell) that should help you write the characters in the right dimensions, and in the best possible positions in each cell. The image below illustrates how to get the best results (first row) and what you should avoid (second row).

                      


Step Three (Scan and Save Template) 

When you've drawn all characters you want to include in your font, it's time to scan the completed template. Scan the completed template with the software that came with the scanner, or use any other application that does recognize the scanner. The following recommendations ensure your template will be correctly recognized:

 

Step Four (E-mail Template) 

The font name will appear as the font name in all applications, so make sure you give your font an appropriate name. You will need to include the following information in your email:

    1. Font Name (2-30 characters max)

    2. Your File must not exceed 10MB

* Only template files with the extensions .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .pdf, .tif, and .tiff are allowed. 


Step Five (Receive and Install)

In order to use your font, you need to install it. Installing a font makes the font available to all applications (including but not limited to most word processing, spreadsheets, desktop publishing and graphic design programs like Microsoft Word, Adobe Illustrator, etc.) on your computer. The easiest and most convenient way to install your fonts is to use a font manager. If you don't have a font manager, do follow the instructions below.

Note: Some programs require a restart for the new font to be available.

Windows font installation instructions

Note: If you are reinstalling the font, it is recommended you uninstall and delete the font BEFORE installing the new version. Sometimes a reboot is required as well.


Macintosh font installation instructions (Mac OS X)

Note: In order to make use of the newly installed font, some applications require you to reboot your Mac.
