Let’s keep this post super short: I finally updated the Galarian language font, “Thraex Sans”, to have letter-specific kerning… and thus it’s been officially designated a Version 1.0 release! Yay!

In case you want to know what I meant by “kerning”, it’s the distance between letters in order for the letters to look a bit more organic and less rigid. Unfortunately, since it’s a TrueType font, it the kerning might not work properly on all word processors. Even this website doesn’t render the kerning properly. However, programs like Photoshop and Microsoft Office (and its compatible clones) can all use it without issue. Take a look:

Here you can see the kerning working perfectly fine in OpenOffice (Microsoft Office clone)
Likewise, it’s working all good in Photoshop, seeing as this is one of the most important uses for it anyways!
But for some reason, the kerning isn’t working properly in something like WordPad.

 

I guess it’s a matter of experimenting and seeing which programs can interpret the kerning or not. Perhaps the best way to text for sure is type “YOLO” in Galarian, which it’ll look like this: yolo … If that program can interpret kerning properly, then the o characters will fit under the y and l… and if not, then it won’t.

Anyways, here’s the link to the font download… enjoy!
