Subject:Re: Keys font From:Chris Hulin <chrish -at- CTL -dot- COM -dot- CY> Date:Wed, 1 May 1996 10:22:40 +0300
There is a font called Keystroke that comes with CorelDraw 5 and 6. We use
it a bit, but the trouble is that it needs to be printed at at least 18pt
for the characters on the keycap to be readable, which does not look good in
10pt text with normal line spacing. We use it for lists of control keys, but
prefer just the word "Enter" etc for use in connected text.
One oddity of the font is that there is no character for the backspace key -
you have to make do with the left arrow - maybe it was sabotaged by the
Fontographer people to boost sales!
Have a good weekend.
