Re: Pali Typeface

Pali version 3.11 replaced the Initial Forms feature with Stylistic Alternates and the former Stylistic Alternates are now Character Variants. Contextual ligatures for Velthuis encoding were replaced with a Stylistic Set (which is not enabled by default). Two glyphs were added for Irony Punctuation,...

Because of the amount of work on figuring out what it should actually do, and how to program it.

I will move it back to the Feature Request forum.

Re: Weight matching

It sounds impractical as a feature request. Drawing the glyphs right in the first place makes more sense than trying to correct mistakes afterwards. A workflow that some designers use is to create the basic elements first, then copy and paste them to other glyphs. To solve your problem, you could us...

Re: Weight matching

This seems more like a support question than a feature request, so I moved it. If some glyphs look too light compared to the others, select them in the glyph overview and apply a slight Bold transformation. Or, if some are too heavy compared to the others, apply a slight Thin transformation. ⋅...

Re: [FIXED] FC11 64-bit: Minor bugs/problems after upgrading

Grabbed the new update, the change to the automatic contour direction works perfectly and the bug is indeed solved, which is awesome - thank you very much. This baffles me. You said earlier: Firstly, when using the stock Draw Rectangle and Draw Circle tools, their contour direction seems to be rand...

Re: What is the advantage of exporting the "Legacy Kern Table"

There are applications that still do not use gpos but do use the kern table. Yes. All Serif Applications, except for the latest PagePlus X9, so I do included the legacy kerning tables. Pali Regular: With Legacy Table: 1.08 MB (1,133,900 bytes) • 7z = 282 KB (288,968 bytes) Without Table: 801 KB (82...

Re: FC11 64-bit: Minor bugs/problems after upgrading

Firstly, when using the stock Draw Rectangle and Draw Circle tools, their contour direction seems to be randomised rather than always being clockwise. It's not a bug, the direction is not random, and it's a feature. You no longer have to reverse the direction of interior contours since FontCreator ...

Re: Copy/Paste from Illustrator

Did you look at this thread ? Importing an entire alphabet is quite easy in Scanahand. If one could do something similar in FontCreator it would be great. Adjusting the baseline and scale factor is actually all that's needed. Optical Metrics can calculate the side-bearings. Even if the vertical posi...

Re: 64 bit open type feature can't be moved up or down

The Up and Down Arrows are enabled for Lookups, but greyed out for Features.

The tooltips look like they need fixing. That's apparently left over from earlier versions.

Re: Copy/Paste from Illustrator

I had a look, but I don't think I can help. Copy/paste from Inkscape always seem to paste in the same place and at the same small size, whatever the options I set.

No doubt Erwin will reply later.

Re: Copy/Paste from Illustrator

Can you zip a few AI images into an archive and share them with me? I don't have many AI images for testing as I don't use Illustrator.

Tell us where you expect the images to be placed, and what Import settings you are using.

Also tell us which version of FontCreator you're using.

Re: Reenable the font preview

You don't have a lot of fonts in your library. I suggest uninstalling MainType, deleting all of the databases, then reinstall and remake your groups and tags.

Re: Reenable the font preview

Is the Eye icon enabled?

You seem to have a lot of fonts with errors (the blue icons) but the green one is installed.

Have you checked for font errors from the Tools menu?
