FontFilter: I'm looking for a font similar to this one, except with non-loopy and straight horizontal strokes. I'd like it to look handwritten, and to be free to download.

I am really only interested in the uppercase letters. In the font linked above, I like the overlap on the horizontal strokes on the letters A and H and the wide stance of the letters.

if nobody ends up finding what you want, you should try this site. I did it, and it was very easy and kind of embarrassing to see how terrible my writing is even when I'm being extra careful.

Check out this site's handwritten fonts. There are 163.

Have a look through Blambot, one of the Dialogue fonts might be what you're after (some are free for non-profit uses; the rest are only $20-30).

I'd also look at dafont.com -- I'd browse the "Script" category, but Flux Architect is filed under "Fancy - Various" so you might look there, too.

tons of fonts at typenow.net -- that's often where I go when I want to find old fonts from the 90s I can't find in my backups.

Try out the Stylus BT font. Its what we use for drafting text. Its pretty similar to the one you linked.

This woman creates fonts out of people's handwriting. If you look around, you may find one that fits your needs.

Toms Handwritten is a similar font.

The strokes lack that drafting pen look of pooling ink, but Bradley Hand in bold caps gives the kind of overlap you're looking for with similar structures and is a pretty standard system font.

Your link is a bit off houstonian
