      @Dragonfly: …sorry to hear that. I send you a message through kickstarter to see what to do.

      Harald:
      Today the posters' package did arrived. Sadly, empty with no posters.

      Harald, I finally got to see the draft. I am just waiting to pledge. I just want Martin Luther font on my computer.

      Just a historical dichotomy! However, I would love to see Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote author, handwriting developed into a font. Also, Sir Francis Bacon and William Shakespear too.

      Those two individuals are Cervantes and Bacon (there is a historical suspicion the Shakespear was a Bacon pen name) as far as I can remember had a beautiful handwriting.

      Just suggesting...

      Harald, I try to get into Martin Luther campaign and the link did not work on Android.

      That is a Font that I am really interested. A medieval handwritting, priceless!

      @Jacques Yes there are differences. You will find a detailed overview of the functionality of each Sigmund Freud font here: https://haraldgeisler.com/sigmund

      I see I have 2 different Freud fonts …
      What’s the difference between them ?
      Is it explained somewhere ?

      Dear Harald,
      I have received everything & I am very happy !
      Once again, thank you so much for this amazing KS !

      I have to say that this is the most original KS campaign and most interesting I have backed to date. Harald, you are to be commended on all your efforts and the results speak for themselves.
      I love the fact you sent actual letters through the post and through the same post offices.
      Every time I look at the letters or use the fonts it brings a huge smile � to my face!

      I can't seem to download the awesome newly-gifted font; when I log in to the site it shows nothing in my purchase history & then queues me to log in again.

    15. Jacques Evrard on

      Thank you so much, dear Harald !

    16. Harald Geisler 7-time creator on

      @Jacques, I will print out your second copy and ship it bundled to you. But you know, additionally if it is urgent you can also download the PDF and print it yourself right now ;-) Hope this helps

    17. Jacques Evrard on

      Sorru for the double post !

    18. Jacques Evrard on

      Ooops !
      I’m worried so …
      I forgot to say that I have received my first copy of the 2 letters & all the digital rewards !
      All this KS was an amazing experience ! :-)

      Hello Harald !
      I was supposed to receive the physical Einstein & Freud letters two times as that’s what I paid for & as I asked the 2nd copy of the letters were sent to my own adress either than that of someone else (I intended to give that copy from hand to hand).
      But I didn’t receive these 2nd copy of the letters …
      Please, help me, my friend ! :-)

    21. Harald Geisler 7-time creator on

      @ David Thank you! This is very encouraging to hear :-)
      @ Ronald The feature you are looking for is called "contextual alternates" Please have a look at the FAQ to activate the feature in word. This can change from version to version of word but "should" be similar. If you have no luck with that try consulting the documentation of your word version regarding "contextual alternates" - AND keep me posted on how that goes.
      @ Matej - is online since yesterday. Thank you for the reminder.

      Has anyone gotten either of these to dynamically work with Word under Windows 10? Contrary to the FAQ that comes with hem, there was no installer, but I figured out how to manually install the fonts in Windows, but I don’t get the dynamic changes shown in the Campaign. Could use some guidance if any of you have solved his riddle....

      "Sigmund Freud's answer will be made available digitally on the 15th of September - stay tuned!"
      Still don't have Freud's answer on my account, it is only me, or you didnt send it?

      Thanks

      @Allen I've reset your password, you should have received a mail now with your new login credentials - let me know if that works.
      @Mike Thanks for pointing this out.
      @eyeiaye fixed it, should work now.
      @edwin thanks :-)

      Hi. The link sent to me is invalid; and I tried resetting my password direct on your website but I get the same error: "Your password reset link appears to be invalid. Please request a new link below." I have tried this several times with nil success. Can you help? Thanks.

      Seconding @Edwin question about the availability of the "Conspired Lovers" font download for those who upped their pledge between June 14 and the end of the campaign. No rush, just wanted to keep it on the radar.

      From Update #4:
      Everybody who already has or will increase their pledge between last Friday (14 June 2017) and the end of the campaign (in 50 hours) will receive the font "Conspired Lovers" as a gift in addition to their reward. The font is based on my own penmanship. Just like the Albert Einstein font and the Sigmund Freud Typeface it also works on PC and Mac as well as iPhones and iPads. Here is what the font looks like on the computer:

      @Harald: whilst eagerly awaiting for the returning letter I downloaded the Einstein letter. I noticed that the additional font is not yet available which made me wonder when the font "Conspired Lovers" will appear in the download centre to those eligible for it (as a gift in addition to their reward by doubling up their pledges in given time frame) as stated in update #4, July 21st

      Thank you for keeping us up to date, it's been a great journey thus far

      Kind regards,
      Edwin

      Harold:
      I know that you must be working with Dr. Freud's letter and I understand that this is a one man show. However, I believe that you should give all the backers a schedule of the remaining parts of the project.
      1-Date for the PDF with the letters.
      2-Date for the Fonts
      3-Date for the posters to be mailed.

      Please let us know.

      Thanks in advance,

      I think the fonts didn't happen on August 7th as planned. I'm sure they will come soon, though!

    46. Dragonfly on

      Harold, My letter arrived today to San Juan, Puerto Rico and my daughter's letter arrived yesterday to Tampa, Florida. After reading it, all I can say is that Dr. Einstein mind was absolutely incredible. His views so far ahead in time, his worries for mankind and his love for life are all exposed on the letter. In 1932 while no one really saw it, he was worried by the coming war that was at least 6 years down the road!

      In the historical moment that the letter did arrived, North Korea wanting to nuke the USA, ISIL Terrorist Attack in Barcelona, Spain; and the racial turmoil been sparked in the USA in nationwide demonstration are the current historical setting of the letter's arrival.

      Have we learned something out of history?
      Has ignorance destroyed World Peace?

    47. Harald Geisler 7-time creator on

      @ Marie sorry - you've answered the survey too late to be included- -you will still receive the PDF and Freuds letter send to you.
      @ Rik, it has not yet returned - so it is still in the air!
      @JDVCO Thats bad, Sorry that should not happen - not sure why it happened though.

      Hi Harald, I didn´t receive anything from you. My location is Germany, just around you!

      Harald, sadly that i must write...."still didnt recieve anything"..., Location the Netherlands...
      Was having a bad feeling in the beginning though...
      Can you confirm that you send the letter to my adress?
