Re: Help with ligatures, etc.

Never mind, I think I may have discovered the reason (and solution) for all my confusion -- my stupid bearings are off on a whole pile of my ligatures. D'oh. :roll:

Sorry for putting you all through that. :oops:

Re: Help with ligatures, etc.

Okay, I'm trying very hard to do this kerning thing right this time -- I think it was a combined effort of miscommunication on Bhikkhu's part and misunderstanding on my part in why I went off in the wrong direction with this before. In entering into this (as a newbie) I assumed -- perhaps naively, b...

Re: Wickednesse

Hey, Bern, thanks so much for your comments and kind words about my font! Yeah, you're probably right about my Cyrillic, but I haven't got the first clue about that -- let alone Greek/Coptic (other than being familiar with some of the more "popular" characters, like pi and omega or whateve...

Re: Extra fi and fl ligs?

So I guess I can just delete them, without any worries that some users out there might run into issues of some sort?

Extra fi and fl ligs?

Along with other "standard" ligatures, there's the "fi" and "fl" ligs that are in the Alphabetic Presentation Forms area -- but then there's duplicates of these in the PUA (at least, if you autocomplete them), namely at uniF001 and uniF002. What's the purpose of those t...

Re: Wickednesse

Oh, I only just noticed your edit from earlier... Edit: The problems I spotted were mostly because you used ligatures instead of kerning pairs. As long as standard ligatures are supported and enabled, kerning pairs won't be used. Oh, that changes everything, if my kerning of my regular "f"...

Re: Wickednesse

My Cankama font is a "Regular" style. Well, perhaps we're both wrong -- ha ha. ;) Like I said, I assumed that mine would be "regular" because it's the only weight for my font, but at the same time it does look rather "bold" (more so than your Cankama, although that's a...

Re: Wickednesse

Thanks! I'll get back to you on that (updating the font). :) In the meantime, though, do you -- or anyone else -- perhaps know the answer to the question(s) I posed in my original post? Here's what I'd written/asked about... One thing that I am rather unsure about are the some of the things in the &...

Re: Wickednesse

Thanks, Bhikkhu (once again)! Do you, like, have all these screenshots handy already all the time when you post? Either way, your efforts are greatly appreciated! :) I'll check all that out later -- I'm desperately in need of a nap at the moment. ;) Should I re-post my revised font as a new comment,...

Re: Wickednesse

Add a lining figures feature to make use of the glyphs that you have already designed. This lookup can be used: lookup SingleSubstitution2 { sub zero -> uniE6A8; sub one -> uniE6A9; sub two -> uniE6AA; sub three -> uniE6AB; sub four -> uniE6AC; sub five -> uniE6AD; sub six -> uniE6AE; sub seven -> ...

Re: Wickednesse

What the fudge -- my uppercase "H" is up too high off the baseline. I thought I fixed that! Oh well. If anyone sees anything else funny going on like that (or anything else), please do let me know! :roll:

Wickednesse

Hey folks, here's my very first font! Or not quite my first, really -- I'd made a fairly simple font of my own handwriting (printing) about a decade ago or so, and then started to work on this Wickednesse font but didn't get very far. I picked it up again last November, though, and have been working...

Re: FontCreator vs FontForge

I sure hope that is not the only reason :roll: Well, no, it's also because you're Dutch, en ik ben ook vanuit Nederland (at least, my parents were) and it is NL where printing with moveable type all began (with my namesake, Meneer LJ Koster, in Haarlem back around 1440). So there's two reasons. ;)

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. I don't get the omega thing either...
