I appreciate being able to do this.

Yes, it is! ;D There is something fascinating about the expressiveness you can get from so few pixels, how much moving a pixel or two around can matter for readability and feel.

But it is also very time-consuming, and I always end up spending hours trying out possibilities, checking how they look in different programming languages, and agonizing over what choices are best :-[.

FWIW, I'm sure you're already very aware of things like this, but one requirement I'd really like is to preserve the visible distinction between '(' and '{'. In Terminus, for example, they are only a pixel or two different, but in Dina they are really distinct, which is great.

Yes, being able to clearly distinguish the characters used in programming languages is a high priority :Thmbsup:.

But it is also very time-consuming-Jibz (August 20, 2013, 08:23 AM)

Just a little appreciation...

Thanks cranioscopical :-*.

I am tweaking the 6 point version, and moving some of the changes to the other sizes at the moment. I think it's looking quite good, though it is very dense.

Here is a comparison of a snippet of C in Dina 8 and 6:

And here are sets of common characters at 6, 8, and 10:

both look awesome  :up:
