Re: Successive open/export cycles cause CFF outlines to change

Project files are what you should be saving and opening to make your changes. Period. I don't create my own fonts, so I can't do this. I have to start with an existing .OTF or .TTF file. Still, the load/save of outlines isn't deterministic. This means that if you lose your project file, you are com...

Successive open/export cycles cause CFF outlines to change

1. Open a font with PostScript outlines. 2. Export the font without making any changes, and note that the file size has grown dramatically if you start with most commercial fonts. 3. Delete the original file, open the exported file, and export it to a new file...again, the file grows. 4. Repeat a fe...

This did solve the problem, but I've posted another bug related to this.

Re: OpenType CFF font files take forever to open

The update released earlier today solves the issue. Definite fix...it's much, much faster than even 10.0 opened the fonts. Because it is aimed at modifying fonts, and since FontCreator currently only supports quadratic bezier curves, all cubic curves need to be converted. Despite the speed increase...

Re: Exported font with FontCreator causes errors when printing

All fonts print just fine here. We're using a HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M476dw. The default driver for HP printers is the PCL6 driver. That is what is installed if you use Windows Update or "find a driver on the Internet" to install. As I said, this driver works fine. Only the PostScript ...

Re: OpenType CFF font files take forever to open

It is slower because we improved accuracy while keeping the number of points as low as possible. Now that I've wasted a lot more time waiting out the nearly two-hour load time for some fonts, I've realized a few things. First, why is FontCreator doing anything at all with the outlines on font open?...

Re: Exported font with FontCreator causes errors when printing

I assume you tested with FontCreator 10.1? No, I hadn't, but now I've spent a lot more time on this to rule out some things. Since a project saved with 10.0 and then re-opened with 10.1 opens much faster than the original CFF font file in 10.1, I tried that. When I did, I found out that 10.1 would ...

I have an HP Color LaserJet M533dn, and fonts saved with FontCreator don't print correctly: PrintedFontBug.jpg This is Adobe's Garamond Premier Pro using the font file as it came from Adobe, and the font file created by FontCreator 10.0 after opening the original .OTF then saving it with no changes....

Re: OpenType CFF font files take forever to open

It is slower because we improved accuracy while keeping the number of points as low as possible. The accuracy can't be enough improved to warrant the 20 to 30 times increase in load time. It also means that drag and drop to open is pretty unusable, as the Explorer window is unresponsive until FontC...

[FIXED] OpenType CFF font files take forever to open

In FontCreator 10.1, pretty much every font with PostScript outlines now takes 20 to 30 times as long to open as in 10.0: 10.0 10.1 Adobe AachenStd-Bold.otf 0:05 1:15 Storm Aahoj.otf 0:02 1:09 GNU FreeSerif-Regular.otf 0:24 5:00 (gave up and killed the process) Fonts with TrueType outlines don't see...

Re: Title bar isn't always updated correctly

Hyperbole doesn't help your case. It takes 2.5 seconds here on a less-capable machine. How many font files (and tabs) do you have open? With just one or two, yeah, it's quick. But with 16 fonts and about 30 total glyphs among those fonts open, it takes 6 seconds on my machine if the "PANOSE&qu...

Works faster when you remember what a Ewid and Eout are. This is something that is driving me nuts. It's one of the many places where the PANOSE documentation either contradicts itself or is just plain unclear. The picture of the uppercase E (figure 5) has lines at the top with the EWid and EOut me...

Re: Title bar isn't always updated correctly

I have reproduced this bug in the current version and I remember it from some while ago, it happens intermittently when you change the title, but it isn't a big deal, the title bar gets updated sooner or later and until it does the discrepancy in the title has very little effect on what your'e doin...

Re: Next/Previous glyph buttons don't respect current folder selection

It's clearly not a bug OK, how often do you use those buttons now? I suspect that because of the way they work now, nobody uses them. If nobody uses a feature because it does not work the way people expect, it's a bug. If I am fixing validation errors, I will close the glyph edit window then open t...

Re: Fonts don't delete

It now works more-or-less like deleting files from Windows, as those can also be recovered from the Recycle Bin. The only thing missing right now is a way to permanently delete fonts. I'm not sure how we could implement it without breaking the current remove and unignore functionality. Adding a fea...
