My fourth attempt to do Courier Narrow. This works pretty well down to about size 10, and is still reasonably readable at size 8. It may not be narrow enough although it is both shorter and narrower than Courier New. it is the same height as Lucidia Console, but narrower. It is about 90% the width of both. I think I may try with 5x12 since the lower case o in this font is round. It could be squeezed a bit. The x and z also tell me that things could go narrrower.

Here is CourierNarrow6x12 compared to four other monospace Mocrosoft fonts.

Can you add the rest of accents?

Where is stroke in capital letter "L"?

Comment by Byczek (Patryk Sztylc) 2nd december 2017

@Byczek, Thank you very much, it looks like I didn't finish 4 of the Ls. They are now fixed.

Interesting narrowed version! (I'd need to see it 'ClearTyped' or postprocessed, against your slight weight overshoot it added.)

Comment by dpla 7th december 2017

@dpla - I am a novice with font work and don't know what cleartyped or postprocessed means. Could you point me in some direction to learn about this?

Comment by jonrgrover 11th december 2017

• E.g. via BabelMap (Windows freeware) > Menu > Fonts > Quality > choose e.g. 'ClearType' (v.s. 'Non-antialisased' by default). But this technology (and the similar ones) only work on 'striped RGB' displays.

• 'Postprocessed'… in general via an image editor (bitmap, vector, 3D editions… it depends on the filter you need, beside one can fine tune the contrast/gamma). If it were me, I'd use Inkscape (open-source freeware) to make a logo lose weight using your nice "CourierNarrow6x12". But I did not check your font locally (monitor setting might help increase the sharpness, etc.).

Courier Narrow made it to the first page, Woohoo!
