The next version of my Envy Code R font especially designed for programming (monospaced, easily distinguishable characters) is nearing completion and represents a very response-driven update to feedback, specifically:
- ReadOnly, Greg Jandl: Comma clarified and change applied to full quotation marks, semi-colons and various accented letters
- Adrian Bool, Greg Jandl: The slash on the zero has been redrawn to be less heavy
- jxp: The Euro symbol has been redrawn from scratch
- Aristotle Pagaltzis: Braces are more curvy and a full set of box-drawing characters have been added
- IRC: Hash sign with longer legs
I have also fleshed out a number of additional symbols and accented letters that has seen the number of code pages supported increase to 12 pages and made a large number of tweaks to the italic version which was a last-minute addition to 0.6 (PR6) and had a number of errors especially round the accented letters.
Of course what you really want to know is how the new version looks in Visual Studio with that lovely Humane theme of mine:
There is still some work to do on the sizes above and below 10 point (again) as well as fleshing out a few more symbols, letters and italicizing additional letters such as a curly k and rounder e which I hope will be finished towards the end of this week.
The observant followers may have noticed a pixel has been shaved off the vertical height which now brings it in line with the bitmapped Envy Code B coding font. I had intended on making the change for some time and the box characters practically demanded it to ensure the centers were whole pixels and not off-center but some people may not like it…
A newer version of Envy Code R is available.
