Writing font
 
Hi

Please help me.......

I really need to find a font or application to make writing practise worksheets (see below) (the ones with the dotted line in the center and the line above and below). Ideally I would like something compatable with word and preferably for free..........

Thanks

hi david,
 
That is great, however, I want something with the guiding lines (see below) so students can make their own words. Any ideas?

If you need a blank worksheet, why not make it yourself?

Hi, I saw your post and I can tell you that after writing 2 textbooks used for handwriting practice, the only way you can get a true format for writing these ws is to use your TABLE function on your computer.  You set up the solid lines and dashed lines into a row on a table and create as many rows you need for the worksheet.  You then insert a textbox and place the typed text on top of the lines and center them.  You will have to work with your font sizes to get it to lay on the table correctly.  The best font that types in a primary Zaner/Bosier schooltype font is called efrom and is available free.  You could buy a program but it īs very expensive and sometimes you can īt switch between fonts using a special program

I use the border function to make these guiding lines:
 
In word 2007:
 
Step 1: Go to Page Layout ribbon
 
Step 2: Click on page borders
 
Step 3:  Click on first tab (Border)
 
Step 4: Click on custom
 
Step 5: For your first solid line select your font style, colour and width e.g. default solid option
 
Step 6: Click on top line in preview box and press ok
 
Step 7: Press enter key to enter a space
 
Step 8:  Now, repeat steps 1 to 7 but select dotted style
 
Step 8:  Repeat Steps 1 - 7 for your bottom solid line
 
Then, copy these three lines and paste them where you need them
 
You can find ready made sheets at:
 
Cheers, Jayho
