Shaping glyphs correctly for reading online.

I have just finished a dyslexia friendly font and noticed that while I have drawn the glyphs with a mix of the corner and (square) and rounded (circle) nodes arial and times new roman and comic sans only use the square node when a corner is absolutely unavoidable.

developing ligatures

I have several fractions I have added to my font as well as the four or five normal ones. But I need to learn how to access them and if they need a tables look up how to do that.

Re: Cant see font in type designer

( 8.Export that script and give it a suitable name, e.g. "gsub_cankama.otlfd") consist...

Re: Cant see font in type designer

Hello, Thanks for the informative reply. I have opened Ariel Normal and the scripts and lookups are all there. So maybe I had a finished font open when I upgraded. I want to look at the kerning of each pair and alter them by hand where necessary. I have printed off the manual but not found how to im...

Re: Cant see font in type designer

If scripts were created in the background in Font Creator 4 Yes, otherwise no. . I used as my base a font I had done in 2003 with font creator 4. Type Designer wasn't in there then. Is there any info on what exactly a script consists of and how to format one. It still confuses me that the font came ...

Font works in windows but partially in mac

I have a font I have sold successfully in Windows for 4-5 years, however mac users have problems. The last comment was the font lost the bottom half of the characters when used.

Unusual letters like the Greek Pi

OK I have tried out the keyboard language changes and used the Greek which is quite fun. However for maths problems it would not be good as you have to restart the computer each time you change the default keyboard. Can you access the letter by entering the Unicode ref of U+0c30 and alt or another k...

Unusual letters like the Greek Pi

There is provision for all these letters and digits on the font screen but does anyone know how to actually type them once they are drawn. I have a list of Ansi codes for a lot of the main letters but pi is not among them.

Re: Fonts on Macs not appearing in Word

I do not have a Mac Computer, but I have sold a font to a lady in America who does and she says it doesn't work. I got a friend to load it on his MAC and he said it loaded and was there but not in the drop down list in Word. Anyone know what I tweak to put this right???? :? :? Anne H
