Someone gave me this link to help with creating guidelines for Spencerian and Copperplate too.

I thought I would share.

I saw the other two links for generators, but didn't see this one. Too many threads. :)

Are the default entries good for basic Copperplate practice or should I adjust them somehow? When I look at the generated default page it looks really small. I am so new at this, perhaps I should print out different sizes and experiment.

Start at 1/4" x-height. It might feel huge, but it's better to see and work on the small details.
