Thanks for the reply
I don't know about that problem with localstorage, I still open it as file:// and it remembers my latest direction. I use chrome for that and it works perfectly. I am aware that it generates a new html file with a unique name for each test, and it still works. did you see my video? https://imgur.com/utYlaQQ

Anyway, a settings file is a good option too.

Here is an unofficial update.

What is new:
  • Improved WOFF test web page
  • Improved manual kerning
You can download this version here:
FontCreator 13.0.0.2621 (64-bit)

Let us know if these enhancements work as expected.

I will try it later myself.

Maybe the download wasn’t completed or your anti virus software blocked access.

I tried disabling my Avast antivirus and tried to download an run the installer again
After I did that I see that the semantic version is not updated in the about dialog (your download is FontCreator 13.0.0.2621):

You have to manually delete the old FontCreator.exe and then reinstall the update.

Let me know your results.

It is strange that the new version of FontCreator.exe didn't come through. Same issue here, but it is really awkward.

Second, the installer will always overwrite the WOFFTest files. In the future that might break new functionality if people use custom files within their AppData folder.

That did it!

Both functionalities you mentioned worked. :D
Thanks for taking the time to help with that.

That's fine, I did my backup. But I prefer using your up-to-date WOFFTest anyway.

For this thread what's left is the rtl option

Within the generated html page does it show initialdir=“RTL”?

No. The default text is ltr.
I looked at the source code and it says

Code: Select all

 var initialdir = "LTR";

By the way, the Hebrew glyphs are shown fine :D no more utf-8 problems.
Its showing the Hebrew alphabet as the default text, which is very nice.
Is that going to be editable in the future? (the options file)

I thought it would work on your side, as it is determined by a local setting on your system. Not sure which one, but it apparently failed.

You might need to force it:

Code: Select all

var initialdir = "RTL";

I forgot to tell it, but the files are already working through the User Data Folder.

Just go to the Options dialog, and click Copy... on the Advanced tab.

Then you can open the folder and edit the files to your liking. No need to restart FontCreator for these changes to take effect. Just do another WOFF test and it should catch the changes.

We will change the preview text samples. It would be nice if we could collect a couple for each commonly used script/ language.

Oh, cool thought.
I use Windows 10 with english though (its just my perference), that's probably why it didn't work as you expected.

Okay, I can do that.
Will I need to force it on each FC update?
What about if you make changes and enhancements in the WOFFTest files when a new FC update comes? I'd like to get the updates too.
It would be nice if I didn't need to force it every update.

Wonderful!!!! I just tried that and it worked like magic.
I very much appreciate your hard work and great customer support.

Well, the benefit of copying the data to a folder where you can edit them has a drawback as future updates of these files are not picked up if they come with a minor update of FontCreator. Keep an eye on the changelog to see if we made any changes to those files.

I understand.
Can we fix that by applying the localstorage function I wrote?
It works fine. You can test it
