    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.

    If you want to make sure your handwriting is legible and neat, you're going to want to practice! It may seem silly, but penmanship is very important, especially in business and academia. Be sure to use proper grammar and punctuation, especially when writing notes to your professors or students! It's a good idea to practice in your own handwriting first, then try copying it over and over again in a clean, crisp font, like handwriting lines font. When you're familiar with the way the letters look when you write, it's much easier to transfer your skills to a new writing surface.

    Either KG or Hello Fonts on TPT has a lined font like that for free. I can look what the actual font is called when I get my computer out later but it’s very handy! There’s also a version with the letters in the lines so you have the option of samples as well.

    alternatively, I’ve used tables in Google docs to make lined paper before as well, and just edit the line color and pattern as needed.
