Join Nick Harauz for an in-depth discussion in this video Type crimes, part of Learning Typography for Video Editors.
- [Instructor] So as it comes to type crimes,…you're staring at a really big one,…right in front of you, right now.…And this happens to be…something that people refer to as dumb quotes.…And this is a standard that you might enter for a quote…when you type in your shift key,…and actually put the inches symbol,…rather than the quote symbol, on certain computers.…Now on certain fonts,…the Mac OS tries to correct you automatically…by putting smart quotes, or the curly quotes,…instead of these dumb quotes.…
In the case that it doesn't,…there is a set of shortcut keys that you should use.…I'm just gonna show you down here what they look like,…but ideally, this is what you'd like to have there…when you're creating your quotes, your smart quotes.…So the one thing that you wanna make sure…is to have curly quotes in this instance,…and this can be done using some shortcut keys…on both Mac and PCs that allow for these smart, curly quotes…inside your video pieces.…Moving on, here we have a couple type crimes going on.…
One in particular has to deal with the line spacing.…
