Re: Modifying glyph names

Regular Expressions are very powerful at pattern matching. This should be well up to any ways you want to modify glyph names. As mentioned in the opening post, we can copy glyph names and paste into a text file. They end up one line per name. Which would be easier, writing a regex and hopefully cat...

Re: Modifying glyph names

I am uncertain how a single f/r for glyph names will aid anyone much less myself.

So I would prefer my original request stand. Thank you.

Re: What is this font?

There might be a font like that. I couldn't find one. It may be that for the logo it is merely modified text as a graphic. I say that because in no other communication of theirs does that type style get used. It is always an image even when it otherwise could have been text (like in their PDFs). Mike

Re: Adding Ligatures in place of Kerning.

The OS makes it possible for applications to query fonts as to the font construct and any features available. It is up to the applications to implement those features. I don't know about the MacOS, but in Windows there are at least two programmatic methods of both querying the OS and using/displayin...

Re: Font/Properties/Extended - Does not save field info!

Thanks for the advice, Erwin.

This has driven me nuts more than once as to the behavior. Glad to know it wasn't me losing what little of my mind I have left!

Re: Font/Properties/Extended - Does not save field info!

There are good reasons to enter information on that tab. I too have periods where the information is not saved. Usually a reboot of the computer enables the info to be saved. But not always. Sometimes after a reboot when it doesn't work, exiting and restarting FC makes it work again. This was never ...

Re: Adding Ligatures in place of Kerning.

I like thought. I express it all the time ;-) I do not believe it is our job in general to make up for any application's lack of abilities.

Re: Adding Ligatures in place of Kerning.

I like thought. I express it all the time ;-) I do not believe it is our job in general to make up for any application's lack of abilities. I do make exceptions for certain OT features. For instance, InDesign cannot turn on hlig without scripting. So I do the same lookups for hlig in a stylistic set...

Re: How can I get rid of ligatures in a font?

No idea. When I use FF, I only use it for getting drawn glyphs into it for other people that hire me. I hate the thing.

A quick Google search turned this up:

https://fontforge.github.io/lookups.html

Somewhere on that site will be your answer.

Re: How can I get rid of ligatures in a font?

Is there a way to turn off ligatures in whatever application you are using? The substitution is because the ligature feature in the font is being activated by whatever application. If you cannot control the application's ligature function then you will either need to edit the font as long as you hav...

Re: Urgently Looking For Script Font.. Help Please

Interesting.

Bistro Script (MyFonts) comes the closest I can find. The lowercase r has an alternate that fits. Chicken types out perfectly from what I can see. The uppercase F has no counterpart in Bistro Script.

That's as close as I could get. Sorry.
