Adding colours to a palette

I am using FontCreator 8 and I am making a colour font. I am getting into a bit of a muddle when trying to add a colour to the palette. I click the + button and sometimes it adds another colour box to palette 1 and sometimes it adds another palette. I click the + button when it appears that I have s...

Re: The Mariposa System

I have got the web page working.

A gentleman who had not got the font installed kindly tested it for me.

I did not need a .woff font.

Re: The Mariposa System

I have a few minutes ago updated the Mariposa font that is available to have the Embedding Licensing Rights as Installable. I am hoping to produce a web page that will use the font and I think that I may need to have the Embedding Licensing Rights as Installable so that Microsoft Edge will allow its...

Hot Peppermint font

In 2003 I published my Hot Beverage font. It was the first font that I ever published. The font only has two two glyphs, a glyph for the then newly-introduced Hot Beverage character and the .notdef glyph. I produced the font using the Softy program. I was unaware of FontCreator at the time. The Hot ...

Opening installed fonts - some of mine are not listed

I am using FontCreator 8.

When I try to open an installed font, fonts that I have made, which are installed, some of them do not show up in the list.

Am I missing doing something when I make the fonts please?

Re: The horizontal bar below the glyph used to position points accurately has disappeared

Thank you.

I found it under View Toolbars after learning from you that it is called the status bar.

Back to fontmaking!

Re: The horizontal bar below the glyph used to position points accurately has disappeared

Thank you for replying.

That does not work here, I get real time validation instead.

I am using FontCreator 8, I should have mentioned that.

I have searched for status bar and can find no reference to it.

The horizontal bar below the glyph used to position points accurately has disappeared

I was making a font, happily using the numbers on the horizontal bar below the glyph to position points accurately. I don't know what I did, but that bar disappeared. How do I get it back please? I tried closing the program and restarting but that did not solve the problem. I tried the Help facility...
