    Anyone know where I can download a 'handwriting lines' font? I'm looking for the kind of lines that are two solid lines with a dashed line in between (kind of looks like a road!:p)...I don't want letters, only the lines....

    Thanks Tasha, but I just want the lines, not words on the lines for tracing. I know how to make plain lines to write on: ___________, but don't know how to make the handwriting lines I'm looking for...

    So are you just looking for handwriting paper? Or are you trying to make worksheets with the lines in certain places only?

    I just make my own using the dash mark. Or you can download actual paper here: http://donnayoung.org/penmanship/handwriting-paper.htm

    CzaCza,
    All you need is a standard handwriting font (such a d'Nealian or Zanzer.) Instead of typing any words or letters, press the space key, and the lines will magically appear across your document. You use your font size to make them smaller or bigger. It is really easy to do it this way in a Word or WordPerfect document, because you just switch fonts, and you don't have to worry about inserting "graphics."

    Cool- I didn't think of making it on my own using dashes!!:thumb:
    Thanks for the info- I'll play around with it!! I'm making a booklet for science vocab. A teacher at a workshop I was at Friday had made one and I'm redesigning it for my class.
