Cursive Wizard™ to link
Most letters do link to each
other in a natural fashion, because they end and start on the baseline.
However, letters b, o, v and w end on top, and have to be linked in a
different way according to the following letter. For instance, one will
not link the same way ba and be.
The letters that exit (end) on
the top, such as 'b, o, v, w', do not connect naturally with the
following letter. So, it is necessary to use a slightly modified
character to obtain what is called a ligature : two connecting
letters, two linked characters. Besides, sometimes, the preceeding
letters does not entirely end on top, but rather in the middle, when it
is followed by an e.
It is very simple to connect
letters, using the Cursive Wizard™. One click on a button !
The Cursive Wizard™ is included

versions of Windows (98 and up, as well as all versions of Macintosh,
