Font Preferences

Recommended Posts

Me, for fonts, I've never really thought about it... Now I'll have to, Aquila, thanks for the thoughts! ;)

Anyways, when I was younger, I always used some South Dakota journal one or whatever, but since then I haven't really seen any that have truly appealed to me. I may have to find that font again...But otherwise, it's Arial, as that's usually the default.

As for size, 12-14. It varies, though usually I make it more in the 14 size to help readers with worse eyesight read it at least a bit better. But any larger, and some of the more avid readers will be a tad annoyed at the larger text.

Of standard, run-of-the-mill fonts, Calibri 11. Used largely for writing, as New Times Roman 12 is required for class papers.

For custom fonts ...

  • Brock Script
  • Lucida Blackletter
  • Old English Text MT
  • Parchment
  • Porcelain 
  • Wolf's Rain
  • Legend of Zelda

I almost always use Times new Roman, because that's what I'm used to using for formal writing. I do however use the old English font occasionally… I downloaded a custom font once and nearly killed one of my older computers, but I'd still like to try it… Along with maybe a few custom PPT templates for my DA account…

In Google Drive, for personal use only, Yrsa size 10, 1.35 spacing, typically two spaces after a period. Otherwise I pull out the academic rule book with Times New Roman or Arial, Size 12, double spaced.
