Snap to common angles for measure and cut contours tools

It would be nice if we could do something like hold down the "Shift" or "Ctrl" key when we use the measure or cut contours tools to constrain the generated line to common angles (like every 45°).

PANOSE wizard

After using the "measure" tool to get measurements to plug into the spreadsheet I created that generates PANOSE strings that can be pasted into the font information dialog, I think it wouldn't be overly difficult to provide a wizard that would make the measurements even easier, and then di...

Re: Transform Wizard Scripts - History

There are times when I am constantly swapping scripts, Usually just two or three. It would be nice if there were three or four buttons at the bottom of the dialog box which were assigned to the last three or four scripts run (or greyed out if no scripts have been run yet). The buttons could be labe...

Re: Wrong outlines loaded

This is not a bug in FontCreator. The italic flag is enabled in Font Properties. OK, so then the FontCreator bug is that the preview on FontCreator doesn't show the font in italics, like every other program does. Also, the "test current font as TTF/OTF" view doesn't show the italics. Both...

Wrong outlines loaded

When opening the attached font file with FontCreator 10.1.0, the outlines are not the ones that appear to be in the font from all other ways of looking at it. Here's the font as it appears in MainType: MainTypeView.jpg And, here is it opened in FontCreator: FontCreatorView.jpg My only thought was th...

Re: PANOSE not saved correctly for Latin Symbol fonts.

Only set it for legacy Symbol fonts, otherwise your font will fail to work. OK, but that doesn't change the fact that even on fonts like that (by which you mean the normal A-Z alphabet code points are replaced with symbols that don't look like letters), the same thing happens. You should be able to...

PANOSE not saved correctly for Latin Symbol fonts.

FontCreator 10.1.0 doesn't correctly save the PANOSE information for a font if the first digit is "5" (Latin Symbol/Pictorial). After you make changes to the PANOSE and set the Family Kind to "5" and click OK, it looks like the change is saved on repeated opening of the Font Prop...

"Extended" Font Properties not saving

No matter what you enter for "Typographic Family" and "Typographic Subfamily" on the "Extended" tab of the "Font Properties" dialog, it reverts to whatever was there before. This means that you can't set these for a new project (where they start out blank) and...

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...

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?...
