I created a script font and very, very carefully made sure that each letter connects perfectly with the next. But, when i zoom out some of the letters do not look like they are joined properly. This happens in Illustrator, which I know has some strange display things. But it is also happening on the site where i am selling the font…
Here is the link to the site:
@mekkablue this is the script font you looked at for me. I took all of your suggestions and did delete all the kerning and created the joins primarily with spacing. The “es” pair however, is sightly kerned.
Otherwise there is not much you can do about it. Adobe apps have multiple rendering modes at different display sizes. And in some sizes, letters are snapped to the pixel grid, and then these little offsets can occur.
Hinting is a technology to make letters legible at small size, not faithful. It means your outline will be modified under small pixel size when you embed hints to a font. It’s better not to use hints to a typeface with connecting strokes.
