Agreed, Fred. Myself a newbie, I always look at the "font help" posts so I to can learn different fonts. You guys amaze me how you know most of them posted!

I liken it to the same pleasure one gets from solving a crossword puzzle. There are often little clues. If I find that one font has come from a clone collection like Serials, then that will often give me a shortcut to another font ID in the same sample.

I also get a kick out of reversing the modifications applied in the original setup (or as Bobby H might describe it: reviving a murdered font). Often I can just do it visually, stretching, unslanting, unrotating or condensing the line of type until it looks right. Other techniques include Bezier pen drawing one character in a really poor resolution sample and then make an ID from just the one interpreted character.

The worst ones though are when the customer brings in a tracing/rubbing of a letter for you to match. And wouldn't you know it, they trace a letter O or a sans serif T and expect you to come up with a match. Fun.
