Any suggestions where I can get GMK font?
« on: Thu, 07 March 2019, 21:28:27 »
Looking to learn rendering keycaps for a keyboard I designed but cannot find the GMK font, any information is appreciated.
Thank you very much.

You can use Helvetica Rounded Bold or Arial Rounded Bold, which are both pretty close to the Cherry font. Many of the symbols and punctuation are quite different though.

If you want better accuracy you're going to have to adapt them yourself. I don't believe there is an accurate replica font publicly available.

Have you tried asking Hashbaz is [if] he would share with you what font he holds for his Cherry replica?

Hopefully one of our resident render wizards can share what they use, but I wouldn't blame them for wanting to keep it a trade secret.

You can try Varela Round

You can also search to see if anyone else has hosted Helvetic Rounded, for example here.

If you add this to the Styles tab it will use Helvetica Rounded Bold:

Code: [Select]
@font-face {font-family: "Helvetica Rounded LT"; src: url("//db.onlinewebfonts.com/t/4633d82b666bc288aaca2e58aeb89690.eot"); src: url("//db.onlinewebfonts.com/t/4633d82b666bc288aaca2e58aeb89690.eot?#iefix") format("embedded-opentype"), url("//db.onlinewebfonts.com/t/4633d82b666bc288aaca2e58aeb89690.woff2") format("woff2"), url("//db.onlinewebfonts.com/t/4633d82b666bc288aaca2e58aeb89690.woff") format("woff"), url("//db.onlinewebfonts.com/t/4633d82b666bc288aaca2e58aeb89690.ttf") format("truetype"), url("//db.onlinewebfonts.com/t/4633d82b666bc288aaca2e58aeb89690.svg#Helvetica Rounded LT") format("svg")}

* { font-family: 'Helvetica Rounded LT';}

You can also adjust the font size, although this adjusts the labels and numbers. I am no web developer and am not sure exactly how to adjust the labels vs. numbers individually.
Code: [Select]
.keylabel {
    font-size: 24px;
}
