[FIXED] "Argument out of range" message while exporting/installing the font in FontCreator 10

Postby scintilla4evr » Sun Jun 26, 2016 8:14 pm

Hello. I have a problem with the recent version of FontCreator.
I was adding new rules to the Chained Context Substitution, and when I wanted to make a test outside FontCreator by exporting the font, "Argument out of range" message popped out.
Edit: This error doesn't occur in version 9.0.0.1904.

Here is the FontCreator project file:

I can confirm the problem. It's probably a bug.

You will have to wait for Erwin to see this tomorrow.

This problem is caused by a bug and a flaw in FontCreator.

The bug was introduced with version 10, but the main issue which is more problematic, has been there since we first introduced support for context based substitutions. The way OpenType layout features are stored in a font won't allow the things you've done. We're working on a fix right now. Hopefully we'll be able to release an update later this week.

In the mean time, please buy a license so we can continue to improve our software!
