I want to develop a worksheet for kids to introduce How to write Hind language with its matra, for that I want dotted font as well as normal font. But using two fonts for one alphabet is difficult. So i think better way to use font style option which is already in Libre office. In Libre I was try outline style but I want dotted font style how to resolve that issue? How can I set dotted font style to any normal font?

Hello @madhavnikam,

"Dotted" is not a feature that can be applied to all Fonts, but Dotted Fonts are especially designed to look Dotted.

My suggestion would be the other way around: start with a Dotted Font and then increase its Boldness until it looks like a "Normal" Font.

Why? If there are no two such fonts, that's one thing. But if you have them, using them is no more difficult than creating two character (paragraph) styles - which is a proper way to deal with such things anyway; each style refers to corresponding font.

It is difficult especially Devanagari script. If I use shivaji font i can able to write म् as म्म (consider half letter म् with different way of writing) when I try to use dotted font that does not have that features so also Unicode font not have that kind of half letter writing method but it is necessary that libre office have something like dotted script for develop such things. In short if I have options like convert any normal font into dotted i.e. i have complete freedom to develop workshee

So, the bottom line is that in fact there is no such pair of fonts that works for you. Then it explains. Thanks.

Yes! for hindi i.e. Devnagari script there is no such pair of fonts which solve my problem, because of writing method of that particular script. therefor I looking for dotted font style like outline font style which is already available in Libre Office. I hope in future Libre office developer team may be provide dotted font style for any normal font. thanks for your support.
