Caliver Book

This is my latest font. It is a variant of a font I created last year called Corieltauvi. Corieltauvi is a huge font, which I was developing so as to learn Open type protocols. Alas, I am stymied, and have found it difficult to wrap my head around the programming needed to be successful using Open t...

Re: my latest colorfont

What a lovely colourful font. I can see it finding a lot of applications for young children. :D :D

Re: Corieltauvi Normal

I have just checked out the OpenType Designer and looked at the modifications you made. This seems very clear as well as your video. Again I will take time to study it so that I may fully understand.

Thank you for your time and patience.

Re: Corieltauvi Normal

I have just watched your video, Bhikku, and that seems incredibly clear. I will have to watch it again a few times to get the gist properly sorted, but thank you, that is a valuable resource.

Re: Corieltauvi Normal

Thank you once again Bhikku This is all touching on the limits of my current knowledge. I think I was aware of the Petite Capitals - I remember reading the notes and deciding that these would be more useful than Small Caps, I think; it's been such an involved and intense process that I forget some o...

Re: Undoing Transformations

I make a practice to save the font project before doing any transformations at all. If the transformation doesn't work, I simply exit and reopen the saved file, and the transformation is no longer there. Using Bikkhu's method as well would provide a belt and braces safety net.

Re: Corieltauvi Normal

Corieltauvi 1.otf This is the latest incarnation of the Corieltauvi font. I have added small caps, superscripts, subscripts, some extra private use area symbols (which I moved to codepoints .61398) and discretionary ligatures. I investigated the Open Type Designer, but I think it's a bit beyond me ...

Re: Corieltauvi Normal

Once again, thank you very much Bhikkhu; I never would have known about that manoeuvre even though I have read a substantial portion of the manual. This software is full of surprises.

Re: Corieltauvi Normal

Thank you both.
The diacriticals are all in the font because I use them for regular sized upper and lower case letters with accents. It's just that they didn't appear on the small caps when I tried the small caps script.

Re: Corieltauvi Normal

I'm still working on the font, trying things out (such as some of the scripts) to 'see what happens' and modifying as I go along. Yesterday I tried the small caps script from the tutorial. The result was pretty impressive, but I noted that the diacriticals except diaresis and top dot did not appear ...

Re: Corieltauvi Normal

Once again, many thanks for your helpful advice. I am learning far more than I expected from creating this font. May I ask another question? It's about 'Complete Composites'. I have included in the font, as an example, a caron and a combining caron, but still some of the composites remain incomplete...

Re: Corieltauvi Normal

I adjusted the funits per em from 1000 to 4096 as suggested on one of my test bed fonts (copies of the main font that I can play with before going on to the real thing). Apart from reducing the size of the glyphs in the edit window, I can't quite see what the transformation achieves. Is it a useful ...

Re: Corieltauvi Normal

WOW! That's a lot of the PUA reserved for other things. I didn't realise.
Thank you.

Re: Corieltauvi Normal

Dear Bhikku Thank you so much for this; it is incredibly helpful. You have identified some of the problems I encountered when developing the font, especially the combining dotless i for which I could not find the proper mappings. With the PUA symbols, given the problem you identified, where would yo...
