Private Use characters

One of the font sites I submit to recently rejected a font temporarily. It was a pretty straight forward serif with ligatures and 80% small caps. This was their exact request: " Your latest font doesn't appear to be PUA encoded and has a number of SMCP characters - Could you PUA encode this for us p...

Re: question about contextual chaining context

Bhikkhu,

I'll be happy to share the font with you. Check your email.
Thanks for the info on the randomize feature. I gave it a try and couldn't get it to work. It would only substitute the first alternate I plugged in. :cry:

question about contextual chaining context

I'm creating a distressed all caps font and would like to use a chaining context table for the first time to simulate an automated substitution. Each lowercase letter will have 3 alternates. For example (a= a.alt1, a.alt2, a.alt3) My goal is twofold: 1. For alternate glyphs to cycle in place of lett...

question about composite glyphs

Hi all. I tried looking for the answer to this but didn't see anything. In the past when I built a font I'd begin with the basic latin characters and accents of course. To create the composites I'd just right click on the empty glyph and choose "complete composites". More often than not the accents ...

Re: question about autokern

Thanks for the reply Bhikkhu. I do have a followup question. I have a ligature "ee" . When I create a separate class for this "not used!" is displayed next to it. If I did that for all the alternates (created their own separate class) and hit autokern would that work?

question about autokern

Hi all. I'm getting the hang of FCP 9 with Open Type features and doing well for the most part. I do, however, have a question about autokerning for some characters. When I autokern, all of the regularly mapped characters are taken into account, grouped into classes, and kerned. However, I can't fig...
