Looks like a great font for presentations too. I would really like to try it, especially the animated version. Unfortunately I have to use PowerPoint which as far as I know doesn't support anything like this. Or am I wrong?

 

If you are the only one giving the presentation you can use webslides, Ive used it alot. When people want the slides I just export them to PDF and send them (does not include the animation tho). With webslides you can use html/css/js and more

 

Yes it's such a nice display font right! I don't have PowerPoint installed on my machine, but I believe if you install the font you can use it like other fonts? The font can be found here.

 

Thanks, have just tried it. Unfortunately it only displays the monochrome version. Same with Libre Office and Gimp. It does look awesome in the browser however.

Maybe you can answer a completely different question: The font has a fixed mapping between strokes and colors, the "o" for example is always yellow. In some of the pictures from your post, this seems to be different. The same character appears in different colors. Why is that?

I think that's how they designed color font to be. You may check out Color Font to learn more about it :]

Sorry if I am asking stupid questions. I understand that in a color font, each character has fixed colors. But in one of your sample pictures displaying the text "the quick brown fox...", the same letters appear with different colorings. This is what I don't understand.

Oops sorry. Let me try to understand your question more precisely -- are you referring to the 'o' stroke, for example, it appears in 'b', 'd', and 'q', as well as 'o' itself?

The 'o' in 'brown' is yellow, the one in 'fox' is green and the ones in 'over' and 'dog' are red. That's what puzzles me.

I see. In fact, all the letter 'o's are yellow. The stroke 'o' in other letters such as 'd', 'p', 'q', 'g' have different colors -- this I believe is designers' decisions. Unless you are seeing otherwise?

Hi, it's me again :) - no, my issue is not the o-shaped strokes in different letters. Please check the letters 'o' in the words 'brown', 'fox', 'over' and 'dog' in the 3rd image of your article. At least on my screen they have completely different colors!

Hmm I see. Sorry I was missing your point 😅

Actually, that image is from typewithpride's website banner. They probably put a different version or one that is not exactly the same with what they release with the font files.

For the actual glyph you will see, should follow what actually shows up in the font book.
