This is one request we receive almost weekly!

Unfortunately, we don’t have the technology to add Cursive fonts to Studio or Widgets, including the Handwriting Sheet Creator.

Cursive fonts contain certain contextual ligatures which link letters together. These require the font carry additional information (rules and logic) to determine when and where to add these cursive joins between letters. Programs like Microsoft Word are able to interpret this additional information into the correct joins, to form flowing cursive writing.

The fonts which Studio and Widgets use can’t handle this additional information, resulting in cursive fonts which do not have the correct joins. For this reason, we have not included cursive fonts.

As soon as the technology becomes available, we will certainly implement all school cursive fonts.

Do you support cursive fonts in other resources?

We certainly do! We still create other PDF resources that require school specific fonts, in cursive.
