PRESENTING ONDISE, OUR LATEST FONT

Have you seen our new font, Ondise? She’s curvy and fluid, with a natural baseline that dances across the page. In addition to a full set of upper and lowercase letters, she has a full set of beginning & end-of-word swashes as well as several alternate ampersands. You’ll see just enough irregularity in the letters […]

crystal - I love this font and its nice to see its lower priced than most of the other fonts. I have a hard time spending money on something I am only going to use once however… do you have any sales coming up?

JoAnn - I am sorry for all the previous comments! I was able to enable the swashes but can only get them to work on the last letter of each word. Is there a trick to get the swash to appear on the first letter?

Thank you!

Jess - Hi JoAnn! Thanks for your font passion & purchase of Ondise. It’s lovely to meet you!! I have an easy fix for you — the code in Ondise needs a space or a bit of punctuation in front of that first letter in order to recognize it as the beginning of a word. Once you add that, it should automatically swash for you. Let me know if this doesn’t work, and we can chat a bit more about what might be happening. Thanks again!

Rebekah - Hi!

Do the swashes work in word(2013) I downloaded the font but cant get it to add the swashes to either the front or end of the word..

Is there a way to enable it?

Jess - Hi Rebekah, thank you so much for purchasing Ondise! The swashes do work in Word 2013. There are a couple of things you need to do to turn them on:

1) Make sure you have a space or bit of punctuation added before the first letter & after the last letter in your word. The application looks for this to say, ‘Aha, she wants a swash here!’
2) Turn on “Stylistic Set 1″ within Word’s advanced/Opentype font options. You can read more about how to access these options ,a href=”http://www.magpiepaperworks.com/blog/wedding-tutorials/using-opentype-fonts-in-microsoft-word/”>here, in a previous blog post.

After setting everything up, you should see the swashes appear automatically. Hope this helps! Thanks again.
