Out of the three, Calibri. Also, for better readability, you can adjust the linespacing to give the font a little more room to breathe.
When looking at web fonts, better readability usually consists of these:
• Large x-height, or height of the lowercase letters compared to their uppercase counterparts. • A visual difference between your "t" and your "f" so they don't get misread as each other • a open lower half on your "e"
It's a strange situation because line heights and spacing can't be a one size fit all thing, when i write over a dark background for example i can't space the lines apart as much or else the dark BG peeks through between the text and it is hard to read, and i don't have time to custom adjust all the text so it's sort of like.. with least work possible which works the best/least worse eh? lol
Hahaha, oh mis-clicks. Thank you for your thoughts! I think more people have specifically commented on calibri despite it not winning in numbers so I think i'm going with that unless i try a completely different one
I have all the quicksand variations, unfortunately book and light are both hard to read to me, they're too thin and get lost for this application.
I didn't show it here but there's a lot of times where i have to write over something else like a background or scribbles, half white half colors etc. it's unpredictable what i redline. And i have to apply a stroke around the text so it stands out, but when the text itself is too thin it gets lost in the stroke and then further lost in whatever i was writing over in the first place. And i know LOL APPLY STROKE EFFECT is not the best way to go about this but i don't have that much time to spend on essentially free advice, so i need something to bang out as quick as possible.
blah blah blah but like yea, that's my situation . If you know if another font that might fit the bill i welcome your suggestion (really *_*)
Give DejaVu Sans Mono (based off Bitstream Vera, another awesome typeface) a shot. Not sure if you're using Photoshop but if you are, make sure to set the position of the stroke to "outside" so it doesn't affect the font.
Huh, interesting, it's like semi sanserif that reminds me of old computer fonts but not quite. I'll give a go for a few redlines and see how it goes. Thanks for the rec!
I do have it set on outside (or else the text would get totally covered up XD) but [link] is a good example of what i mean, if the text was not bolded it would get over whelmed by all the other elements. I digress though, I will try DejaVu Sans :3
