Suggested use for font: Make Handwriting Lessons
Other than fonts1 , you don't need anything specilized to make handwriting worksheets, you just need a word processor or a paint program. I like Microsoft Word, preferably an older version - 7 or 10. That said, there are free word processors out there and I've stopped recommending them as some of them now contain bloat-ware. If you try a free office suite, install carefully, make sure that it is not adding a plethora of junk software that you don't need. A Toolbar is an example of junk software; really - anything that is NOT the program is junk software.
