  • Patent number: 11488053
    Abstract: Certain embodiments involve automatically controlling modifications to typeface designs. For example, a typeface design application provides a design interface for modifying a design of an input character from a typeface. The typeface design application accesses a machine-learning model that is trained, using multiple training typefaces, to recognize the input character as a reference character. The typeface design application receives, via the design interface, an input modifying the design of the input character. The typeface design application determines that the machine-learning model cannot match the reference character to the input character having a modified design. The typeface design application outputs, via the design interface, an indicator that the input character having the modified design is not recognized as the reference character.
