Re: Complete Composites uses uppercase I instead of dotless i

The XML file is from 2016. Are you using FontCreator 9.0? No, I have the latest version. Apparently, when you upgrade versions and then use the "Copy Data Files to User Data Folder" feature in the options dialog, it doesn't overwrite any files that might already be there. I had used that option whe...

Complete Composites uses uppercase I instead of dotless i

Using "Complete Composites" on the attached project, the uppercase "I" is used on all the composites that should use the lowercase "i". I have not modified the "CompositeData.xml" file from the default. It is attached as well. I've trimmed down a font as much as possible to show the error, and modif...

It works just fine here.
It's working now, but before with the previous character highlighted, it didn't work.

Insert characters search fails to find exact match for some characters

In FontCreator 11.5.2427, 64-bit: Entering the text SUPERSCRIPT FOUR into the "Find by Character (Name)" box and clicking "Find Next" fails to find the character $2074. If you click on character $2074, the "Selected Character" shows as "$2074 - SUPERSCRIPT FOUR", which should match, and SUPERSCRIPT ...

Actually I've just managed to unset it in 11.5 Pro :P - anyway, great thanks for the clarification!
OK, it's only the "Glyph Properties" window that won't let you unset it.

View creation option resource "Available"/"Not Available" broken

When creating a new view, there is a option that allows a user to see if the font resource is "Available" or "Not Available". Since the "Font Information" panel has a "Resource" section that shows the files on disk that are associated with the MainType font resource, I thought this option was to che...

"Cut"/"Paste" context menu items are enabled/disabled incorrectly

In MainType 8.0.0.1135, 64-bit: In the font list, the "Cut" menu item is only enabled when the list is displaying a group...searches, views, etc., leave the "Cut" menu item greyed out. I can understand that it could be difficult to "cut" because a font might be in multiple locations, but otherwise i...

Sync groups don't display empty directories

In MainType 8.0.0.1135, 64-bit: If there is an empty directory (i.e., one that doesn't contain any font files) below the root of a sync group, it does not display. This means that you cannot copy or move fonts to new directories within the MainType UI. You also can't copy or move to a directory that...

Re: Side bearings - design standards

Just to be sure - isn't that the result that we obtain by checking the "Set left side bearing at x=0" box, as I did on the attached screenshot? Yes. After playing around a bit, I found that the newest version of FontCreator won't let you unset "Set left side bearing at x=0", so it really doesn't ma...

One small but important detail is that %AppData% actually points to the current user’s AppData\Roaming folder
Good point. Thanks.

Re: Typekit & Google?

To integrate with Typekit officially, you have to jump through some Adobe hoops that usually aren't easy and often have bugs. You can unofficially integrate with Typekit by adding the following sync folder to MainType (%APPDATA% is the AppData folder for your user): %APPDATA%\Roaming\Adobe\CoreSync\...

Re: Database cleanup tool?

Since I have only about 5,000 fonts in my library, OK, so you have a very small font library...DaFont.com lists 3,800 fonts beginning with the letter 'S', and those are actually font families . A 5,000 font library is nothing, even staying strictly within the law, and without having to pay a dime. ...

Database cleanup tool?

With the current version of MainType, if a user moves/deletes a font file that is in a "sync" folder, when the folder refreshes, the font is no longer displayed in MainType. This behavior makes sense, and is intuitive. If the user moved the file to a different "sync" folder (or even moved it back to...

Re: Side bearings - design standards

that the left side bearings are generally set to zero Along with the other good advice, note that most fonts still set the left side bearing point at x=0, and then set the left side bearing value at a number that is appropriate. In the example of your letter 'T', this might mean that the LSB and RS...
