Automatic Update [Closed]

I elected:

Tools=>Options=>General, and ticked the appropriate box

to minimise MainType, on closing, to the Systems Tray.

In this condition Automatic Update will download but will not install.

Re: Working on a new font

This looks like a very interesting, lovely typeface in the making. Look at Pia Frauss's fonts. Use the Search function and her fonts were shown, and could be downloaded from, the Gallery Forum once upon a time, but I haven't looked recently. Are you planning to join up the glyphs in the text ensuing...

Re: My first fonts

So. The fonts bug has bitten! Excellent examples. And isn't it absolutely satisfying to know you are able to do that?

Re: Problem with Italic script?

I was interested in this problem. I know that validation problems can be introduced into a font that previously validated without problems by processes such as transformation. Dick Pape once pointed out that automatic hinting applied to a 'clean' font could also produce problems. 'B' in the Test Fon...

Re: Vn 6.0 Import Image

Pleased you got it sorted. The left Window shows selected images of handwritten characters in a folder which has just been opened.

Re: Vn 6.0 Import Image

I'm having no difficulty dragging and dropping bitmaps of prospective glyphs into a new font opened in FC6.

Re: Blanks

Berti, see http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/NonPrintChars.htm MS Word is the culprit, not Scanahand. Depending on the version of Word you have (Word 2003 and earlier), a toolbar button marked with a '¶' toggles the non printing formatting characters which are not present in the Scanahand collect...

Re: I have made a font

I just clicked Loatmart.ttf up^there and downloaded it onto my hard disc.

And yes, it does work:

I guess that you are a young person and you should be proud of your efforts. With some more reading you are on the right track.

Copy from Characters Pane to Sample Pane

Is it possible to copy a batch of characters from the Characters Pane to the Sample Pane or is it only possible to copy them one by one?

If it isn't possible then it would be a useful, future, additional facility in the application.

My view is that, in general, the people choosing to use Scanahand to generate a font will not be interested in making a font for multilingual use involving many accented glyphs. I feel that the typical user will be interested in one particular language and perhaps one or two second languages of othe...

Krips2

An experiment using Scanahand. This font Kripps2.ttf started life in Scanahand but was subsequently embellished and enlarged in FontCreator 5.6. Hopefully the changes are not so much as to take away, entirely, the spontaneity of the original. The font is primarily for teachers who are using the 'Cri...

A number of the buttons do not 'spring to life' until a selection is made. Left click in the Edit window and drag a rectangle round the glyph first. If in points mode select by dragging with the rectangular, or the lasso selector, or by shift-clicking a number of points.
