Cubic vs. Quadratic

Will converting contours from Cubic to Quadratic (or vice-verse) alter the shape/outline of the glyphs? If I am copy-pasting glyphs from Adobe Illustrator, they will be Quadratic, correct? Any advantage to converting to Cubic if I am exporting the fonts as CFF? And finally, will the fonts look bette...

Optimize Contours vs. Font Validation 'fix detected problems'

Is there a difference between going Edit/Optimize Contours and going through the Font Validation Wizard and checking 'Fix detected problems'? In Font Validation Wizard, will the glyph shapes significantly change if the problems fixed are: Contours with incorrect direction Redundant points Off-curve ...

Open Type Designer - kerning preview not working

In the Open Type Designer, when I make adjustments to kerning pairs and apply the changes, it does not reflect in the text preview below.

Program window pop-up when opening a font

I noticed that when going to a font file, right-clicking/Open With/Font Creator - the program stays 'hidden' on the Task Bar (if I already have the program open), instead of popping up on the screen like other programs do. Can this be changed for the next version? It makes it seem like 'Open With' d...

Re: Keyboard Shortcut for File/Export Settings

Ctrl + E would be a lot better, but that would require a change of the shortcut for Paste Special to Ctrl + Shift + V. Although that makes better logical sense, changing shortcuts is risky as it may annoy any users who frequently use Paste Special. Is there a reason why there are two different shor...

Yes, it is. Keyboard Shortcuts
How about Ctrl + D? That's a good one.

Keyboard Shortcut for File/Export Settings

I am perplexed why there is no keyboard shortcut for File/Export Settings, as it is something I am constantly opening and have to check every time I export a font.

It would be EXTREMELY helpful to have a keyboard shortcut for this and would save so much time.

Fonts printing out jumbled

What's going on here? On my printer at work (Xerox Phaser 7500), only the fonts I have saved out of FontCreator (10.1 Pro) are printing out all jumbled (see image below). I saved them as .OTF with these settings: Outline Format: CFF (Postscript) OT Layout Features: Yes Legacy Kern Table: No Glyph Na...

Re: Font file preview is blank but font installed correctly...

It was already uninstalled from the system. What I'm talking about is opening up the font file and the preview window being blank. The font file currently lives on my desktop and is not installed in the font folder yet.

I've attached what I'm seeing:

Font file preview is blank but font installed correctly...

In Windows, double-clicking on the font file gives me a blank preview, yet the font works normally. It started as a True Type outlined font, and the preview worked. I saved it out as a PostScript outline font. I have done this with other fonts with no issue, but for some reason this one has a blank ...

Re: Why can't you visually kern pairs?

When I do Autokern, it seems to be creating multiple classes for every kerning pair, do you know why this is? (I realize I may have ran AutoKern more than once. How would I remove all the Auto Kerning and start over?) I don't know what to do with multiple classes for each pair, it means I have to ma...
