    Thanks. :) Yeah, though I made the theme, I too am tempted to drag and click on close buttons, or expect that beaut window drag effect.

    I plan to add some more features to it, but I will start with a bsod 404 page. For drag no ETA yet.

    I recommend this book https://fontsarena.com/blog/how-to-create-typefaces/ (How to create typefaces — from sketch to screen).

    It's very beginner friendly and has good explanations. I'm not a type designer, but I created my own experimental fonts after reading it. It also includes 3 different processes/ways to start designing fonts, while encouraging the reader to refine them in time, and find their own best fit.

    As software to create my fonts I used FontSelf.

    Note: the article does NOT have affiliate buying links, and I'm not advertising in any way. It's just a personal recommendation, I have nothing to gain from this.

    Some require scripts, some css, some other kind of tracking. Every external resource loaded is a minus for the performance of a website, and loading fonts and/or trackers externally is therefore less than ideal.

    There are sellers that do not enforce tracking, but for me it's out of the question not to pay for a license I agreed with. I wouldn't like somebody do that with my work, so I wouldn't do that to anybody else's work.

    Would you pay hundreds or thousands of dollars for a web font for a website or app? And pay some more hundreds and thousands when you exceed the limited pageviews?

    And market won't change without someone pointing to the elephant in the room :)

    Having no choice doesn't mean things work out. And it's not beneficial for the font authors either, ignoring a big well targeted buyer category is not a good thing.

    Nobody is asking for benefits. We're asking for logic, the same logic that is applied to desktop fonts.

    I do use Adobe, but that is restricted only to personal sites. Including in Adobe's case I can use the desktop fonts in commercial work, but not the webfonts. At all. Not even limited.

    Also, branding needs desktop fonts not web fonts.

    I hope so too..Current licensing is complete nonsense.

    Indeed! I was so busy with web license that I forgot about the other ridiculous pricing. What format do mobile apps use? TTF/OTF?
