Re: Problem applying a font (keeps reverting in Word)

By default Unicode and Codepage character ranges are automatically updated on export. Since your subset font lacks a lot of characters, it is likely a required range is now excluded. So do go to Font Properties -> Ranges and uncheck "Automatically update character ranges...". Let us know i...

Re: How to export only new characters

It seems you are running an unlicensed version, which as the popup dialogs also tell you, have some restrictions.

So you do nothing wrong, just some glyphs will contains the High-Logic watermark. The font will export just fine as soon as you provide a valid license.

Re: Uninstalling fonts from Windows/Fonts : Where do they go?

The vault is a database, that contains a copy of each font you add to the library. This ensures that you'll be able to install and load your fonts, even if you no longer have a copy on disk.

Re: failed warning

There are rare cases where the algorithm fails to find a good solution. Sometimes you will visually see this, and sometimes it just fails to find a solution at all.

Usually moving a couple of points, just by one unit, will solve the problem.

Re: diacritic stacking: positioning problem

The only way I found of getting around this problem was to manually change the glyph composition formula for each such case. 1. Is there a way of doing this automatically? 2. Is there a way of accessing a list of all such formulas used in a font? No, there is no list of those formulas. I still thin...

Re: How to Remove a font from a group?

Another way to move fonts from one group to another is to select them in the Font List panel and then drag and drop them onto the other group in the Groups panel. Hold down CTRL while dropping to force a move, otherwise the fonts will be copied.

We updated the forum a couple of weeks ago. This cache issue might be related, so maybe you should clear your web browser cache. Or at least try with another web browser to confirm it is an issue on your side.

That is a very nice handwriting indeed. I still intend to make a font out of my own handwriting when I have some spare time left, so maybe you should give it a try ;-)
