TEXT IN DOTTED LINES, IS IT POSSIBLE?

I am looking forward to have my child start writing and learn some letters.
Is it possible to have some fonts, being enlarged ant written in dotted
format so as to allow my son to trace such lines and learn writing?

If you Google for Dotted Line Font, you should find what you are looking
for.

Try using a simple font, like Arial, make the letters 72 pts (or larger),
and then change them from black to a light color (for example, grey, pink,
yellow, light blue). Your child could trace the letter just as easily as if
it was dotted. :-)

To add to JoAnn's suggestion: << Try using a simple font, like Arial, make
the letters 72 pts (or larger), and then change them from black to a light
color (for example, grey, pink, yellow, light blue). Your child could trace
the letter just as easily as if it was dotted. >>

You can also add the outline effect to the letters. Goto: Format > Font and
click "outline."

Re: TEXT IN DOTTED LINES, IS IT POSSIBLE?

I've often wondered to what extent users actually use the Outline, Emboss,
Engrave, and Shadow effects for text (much less the various blinking effects
and marching ants and such*). But your suggestion suggests to me that adding
"broken" or "dotted" as a text effect would be quite useful.

*I do know at least one MVP who formats Normal style as bright pink with
marching ants so it is easy to tell when she has missed applying a specific
paragraph style to any text. <g>
