    Font question

    Evening All!

    Until I get around to making an electronic panel to put in the overhead for the volt readings I was planning on printing a 'dummy' - a black box with white text that will show through when back lit - therefore which font would you consider to be the closest to the electronic font used by lcd / led characters?

    Many thanks
    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    there is a font called Glass Guage Truetype, if you are using XP it should be in your fonts directory, if it isnt there let me know and I'll email it to you.

    Cheers everyone for the tips - Ian that is exactly what I was going to do - everyone else thanks for the suggestions, I was on a Vista machine and it didnt have any suitable fonts installed so I can now look at them and decide which I would like to use.

    Thanks
    Mike
