Re: Plugin grayed out

Maybe Adobe released an update. Which InDesign version do you have installed?

Re: Some bugs and new improvements

We know the preview isn't perfect for complex scripts. In order to improve it, we need to better understand how to process a run of glyphs. Can you explain that missing link?

Re: About Justification Alternates

It might be possible if you keep the advance width of the justification alternates equal to the original glyphs. You also need to ensure other positioning features (e.g. pair positioning) match as well. But I think you need to adjust the design of the justification alternates, which is probably not ...

Re: MainType 6.0 Installation Error

It can be done, but since older versions don't overwrite all more recent components (we try to move forward), it needs to be done with care. Please be aware the MainType database is upgraded to support MainType 7. This can't be reverted to an older version, so you will loose all your font libraries,...

Re: FontCreator vs FontForge

Actually FontCreator does give two characters the same name: 03A9 and 2126 are both named Omega.

That should never happen (we'll fix this in the next upcoming release), but FF is also wrong, as Omega should be mapped to $2126.

[Tt]commaaccent are correctly mapped.

Re: Acariya: A Less Condensed Version of Guru

It is next to impossible to spot any issues with your fonts, but the upcoming improvements to the validation feature did find one minor issue with germandbls.smcp.

Re: Modifying glyph names

I am uncertain how a single f/r for glyph names will aid anyone much less myself. With regular expressions it allows you to quickly change part of a name into something else. We should provide some examples to get novice people started, but I'm sure some people will benefit from it. So I would pref...

Re: Help with ligatures, etc.

If you are not sure if you want to sell the font, then better not post it here. You can send it to me; I'll send you a pm with my email address.

Re: Adobe Indesign CS6 Plugin "crashes"

We still don't understand why the plugin conflicts with InDesign CS6 8.0.2. We'll let you know as soon as we've found a solution.

Re: Problem with Make groups based on glyphs

In general classes are meant to be used with class based kerning. Such kerning lookups can only be stored if there is no class overlap, otherwise the lookup will be flattened, which requires more storage, but should still work fine.

Re: Modifying glyph names

We intend to add a search and replace for glyph names with support for regular expressions. This is not exactly what you request, but it might help.
