Re: How to Add Beams to Notes?

I have no idea how one would do this. The best I can suggest is to open an existing Music font and see how others do it.

Re: WebRoot shows trojan

Assuming that you downloaded MainType from the High-Logic site, and not some dodgy third-party site, report the false positive to Web Root.

Re: Dingbats, other symbols keeping original glyph

I have no idea why it's happening, but also don't understand why you choose such random code-points.

Why not just remap all of the glyphs to the Private Use Area? Something like the attached.

Re: Dingbats, other symbols keeping original glyph

Many glyphs at the end of the font are not mapped.

Black Center White Star (10028), is multi-mapped also to 10031-10033, 11207, 11212, 20429, 20432-20434

Re: Dingbats, other symbols keeping original glyph

I disabled the setting to "Automatically update character ranges" and tested the font, which installs a temporary font in Windows 10 (Creators Edition). Automatically Update Character Ranges.png I then selected the temporary font in PagePlus X9, and inserted a number of glyphs from differe...

Re: I'm a Total Noob Here

What application are you pasting the glyphs into? If I paste Private Use Area glyphs from MainType to this forum I get the .notdef rectangle glyphs as the browser's font does not support these glyphs:  - maybe that's what you're seeing. If you don't have an application that supports OpenType featu...

Re: I'm a Total Noob Here

You don't actually need to buy MainType to try it out. The free version is limited to non-commercial use, and only supports 2,500 fonts, but otherwise it does many things that the paid-for version does. Copy to clipboard.png If your word-processor or other application does not support the characters...

Re: Insert... Confusion

You did not do anything wrong. Unfortunately, that's how it works. You cannot insert a new character where it belongs. The best workaround is to cut the newly added character, insert a glyph where it belongs, and then Paste Special to paste the new character into the empty glyph, complete with its o...

Re: Snap to common angles for measure and cut contours tools

The cut contours tool already does that by holding down Shift. It constrains the cut by increments of 15°

It would be useful to constrain the measure tool to horizontal and vertical at least, but if that's not difficult, then I suppose that 15°increments would be just as easy, and more consistent.

Re: Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator 1.4 issues

I have used the MSKLC to create my keyboards many years ago. I could very easily lose interest in your problems. Did you try with my keyboard?

Re: Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator 1.4 issues

The problems that you see may be hardware related. I have no problem using dead keys on my customised PagePlus Keyboard to type many accented characters. Shift 6 ^ is a dead key for circumflex, âêîôû, Ctrl + Alt + 6 is a dead key for caron: ď ľ ň etc. Try my PagePlus keyboard with your hardware, and...

Re: Why can't you visually kern pairs?

When I do Autokern, it seems to be creating multiple classes for every kerning pair, do you know why this is? Autokern should only be run once. If you need to edit the kerning pair adjustment lookup or the kerning classes, use the OpenType designer. You can clean up unused lookups and features in t...
