The Designer Notes is not very nice, also; the extra details would be lost. Marker SD is so similar, is it really worth changing it over?

You're wrong, they're not similar at all, and both are much better than the current font.

This is the one great thing about the foundry. Everyone has an opinion and everyone is right. :P

Only politics can equal the foundry in this. :roll:

No, I'm saying I'm objectively right and you're wrong. Objectively. There's no opinion involved. It's just a simple fact, a truth if you will, that I am absolutely, 100% right.

I like marker-sd more

Here an update, also with a different elephant.
For the rest we will see, right now I'm not in the right mood to spend my free time on this for a while (this is the 40th version i think, but yes, just because you can't see the others you can think i did everything in 5 minutes).
Anyway , i don't want to be a pita so I shut up now, as said I'm in a bad mood.

Let me know if you like the new font, I'll update also the legend accordingly (or is it ok?)........... when I have time.

I liked the old font, but if people prefer this one, go for it.

Same here, but here is my reasons why,

E in Egypt looks funny.
Small e looks like a funny c as there is no space at the top.
Small i, the dot is so small it cannot be seen clearly, so on the small map, will look even worse.
Small s looks like a bad c, just like the e. :roll:
The & in Ghana and Togo looks like a different font completely.
Small t is as small as the small letters.

And there are many more issues with this font. nobodies had a great font that worked. Go back please or find another.

Only someone with no eye for design could possibly call that font "great".

Just look at the characters in that font - they have this squirmy, cartoony quality in them that gives a very comic-sans-like feeling, like the font attempts to be funny but fails badly...
It's a font that looks like it belongs to a childrens' book, it has a totally infantile feel...

There's nothing objective about that opinion. :|

At any rate, I do like the new font better. I would like to see the other text using the old font updated as well (g.e. the legend).

I'm just realizing, I may have done this wrong for a long time now - is it g.e. or e.g.?
