About Monotony(R)

TSMonotony(R), one of a series of complimentary
ProtoType(R) from phi*JaMaCon associates really, no
charge. All rights retained by Phil Noguchi.

12 Sep 1990

Here's the font nobody's been waiting for, a monospaced
font for the rest of us. There is nothing remarkable about
this font; in fact, it's so boring I named it Monotony(R)
zzz, oh, sorry! I dozed off. (Note that the at the end
of Monotony(R) denotes the opposite of !; that is, not
excitement but sighdom.) Actually, you will find that there
very few monospaced laser fonts around; Adobe(TM) has a
couple, I sell a couple , not too many others. This
particular font is one of many ProtoType(R), that is, early
versions of fonts that I will make into future commercial
fonts, but without many nicities, like tuned bitmaps and
Apple(TM) approved FOND family numbers. No, this is a font
with its own dog-eared icon, but everything else is
straight from a Fontographer(TM) 3.1 compilation. It is a
Type 1 font, which means that it is smaller and prints
faster than the older Type 3 fonts; and it has Q-hints and
looks okay at small type sizes oh yes, you can use it
with ATM as well. I realize that the screen fonts are not
exceptionally clear; on the other hand, Fontographer(TM)
really does a pretty good job of making the bitmaps at
least readable.

Printing this document: Be sure to follow these
instructions for best results when printing directly from
this DocMaker(R) file. These hints are not because of any
fault with DocMaker(R), but have to do with the vagaries of
printing when the font is buried within the document
itself. First, install the Monotony(R) Screen Fonts in
your system file with Font/DA Mover 3.8 or higher, or use
Suitcase(R) or MasterJuggler(R) to load them. Copy the
downloadable Postscript(TM) file MonotBoo to your System
Folder, and then you can print this document directly from
the File menu. If you do NOT install the screen fonts, you
can still print this document, but you must turn off
Background Printing if you using MultiFinder. If you don't,
the spacing will no longer be monospaced. Also note that if
you print this under Multifinder without installing the
screen fonts, the Postscript(R) font MUST be in the System
Folder (another ``feature'' of background printing under
Multifinder).

The bulk of the text in this document is Monotony(R) 12
point, and I think it looks a bit like Letter Gothic.
That's right, now you can make your expensive laser printer
look like an IBM(TM) typewriter! If you like the results,
then please feel free to use Monotony(R) for your own
personal use, and be sure to tell others how much you like
it. Monotony(R) is freely distributable as long as the
three files at the top of this document are distributed
together. Note that while there are no fees for
Monotony(R), it is NOT in the public domain and I retain
all future rights for commercial and other uses.

Some uses for Monotony(R): Office memos are inherently
boring, so Monotony(R) is perfect; some like monospaced
fonts for reports, and for programm listings. Note that I
have included font sizes down to 8 points. Because of the
way I designed the font, the 8 point size is 4 points wide,
or about 18 characters per inch, which will let you put
quite a few characters on an 8.5 inch wide piece of paper:

As long as you use an even size, like 8 or 10 points, this
should print absolutely in monospace; if you try a 9 or 11,
you probably will get better results if you use fractional
spacing when you print. The reasons for this are truly
arcane and only for the dyed-in-the wool macHacker;
besides, I'm not sure I quite understand it myself.

Credits include Altsys and Earl Allen for their superb
support and the dynamite product Fontographer(TM); Mark
Wall for creating the DocMaker(R) application which made
this document; Adobe for finally releasing the Type 1
specs, and of course, Connie for putting up with this
nonsense.
