I’m trying to create a font to produce different curved lines similar the below example (curved lines with different shapes), and want to use it through general word processing programs (e.g. MS Word). However I’m not sure about the starting point since this does not obey general typographical metrics.
I’d like to know is it possible to create such a font at all (I own FontLab 5)?! I also about thinking to buy some similar font at first, if you could suggest me one?
Yes it’s possible with font creation software such as Fontlab or Fontographer, or Glyph, or BirdFont.. or any of them, really.
Fonts are merely a collection of symbols, what those symbols are is irrelevant. This is why you see fonts which are pictograms, like Wingdings.
