Creating text with lines
All handwriting fonts contain lines to guide beginning writers, sometimes these lines are called 'dotted thirds'. Using Word you can choose the type of lines you want for your text. To type a text with lines you need to first create a page of lines by repeatedly typing one of the 'lined' characters. You then create a text box and type your text over the lines.
We received an email from Matthew with an attached zip file of "dotted thirds" as watermarks. You can read what Matthew said, and download this file if you like. Then Jeni emailed us to say, "I'm interested in being able to type words and have the box shape come up for children to recognize the shape of the word." Jeni's suggestion was followed a couple of days later with a new font called "Letter Boxes". Thanks Jeni.
Using most word processors you can make the letters whatever size you like. If you are using Word, go to FORMAT, then select FONT, then type in the font size you want.
