    Applying Color to Open SVG Font

    adamvlaw

      I just discovered Open SVG (Color Font) format. I purchased a hand-painted font in this format, but it seems I can only use it as a black font. There are no other options in the glyph menu either. Is there some trick I am not doing that would let me colorize an Open SVG font? What am I missing here? I feel dumb. I hate that.

       

      Best,

          If they did not include other glyphs then you will have to recolor using a nonsvg method

          1. outline the font to shapes and use recolor artwork
          2. draw a rectangle on top, fill with a color, and choose a blending mode like color. Unfortunately you will need to mask unless your have a background color the will not be affected (eg.: black)
