    looking for that font that looks like the technical
    pen draftsmen use, with straight lines and a kind
    of bulbous end, almost like a dot, on the end of each
    stroke...

    if anyone nows of a free version that would be great,
    thx

    there is a technical font in corel & if there is a dot at the end of a letter by a draftsman it is in correct as I was taught & I taught no dots that means the pen was held in one place too long. a draftsman shou;d be able to lal a line with no real visable difference in width , its a techinique of going from the ends to the middle & pulling away in the middle so the overlaps equal the thickness of the line .

    As an ace draftsman for some years, I concur that long lines in a blueprint would be drawn in mulitple stages feathering out in the center from each direction, but this is not true in lettering. I was taught to letter (with a pencil, not a pen) & to hesitate at the onset, & again at the termination of each stroke of a letter to enhance the deliberate & exact nature of every line being intentional.
