FontCreator Hotkeys -- Keyboard Shortcuts

Sometimes, using the keyboard is just easier. As a "labor of love", as they say, I wrote a script (wrapped in a .exe for distributability) with nearly 100 additional hotkeys to facilitate our working with the wonderful FontCreator software. It's entirely free, Open Source, and it's ready for you and...

FontCreator Hotkeys v.1.0.0 launch!

With a desire to get more out of my FontCreator experience, I used AutoHotkey to script up a massive number of hotkeys. After spending so much time working on it, I thought it would be most worthwhile to share it with anyone else who might find it useful. After two hard weeks of working on it (I'm n...

Re: Differentiating Anchor Types

Thanks for your response! Yes, I did read that, and all the other instances of "anchor" in the documentation. But none of it explained (at least, as far as I could glean) how to assign anchors from the Add Anchor tool in glyph edit mode. I have the option to add a "base" or "mark" anchor, but it's n...

Differentiating Anchor Types

I don't understand the proper application of the anchor types "mark" and "base". Does a "base" anchor only go on the base glyph, and the "mark" anchor only on the mark glyph? Or do you put a "mark" anchor on the base glyph to show where the mark sits, and a "base" anchor on the mark glyph to show wh...

Re: Clearing multi‑mapped glyphs

Sounds great, thank you!

And good advice to work on a copy and back‑up the progress regularly.

I think I need to get cracking...I've got over a thousand glyphs to edit! :)

If, in the course of things, I figure anything out, I will send an update.

Thanks once again!

Re: Clearing multi‑mapped glyphs

Super! So I just copy all the glyphs as you just mentioned, and then I'll have to manually go through each one to delete the redundant codepoints?

Just want to make sure I understand (before I go and screw up my project!)

Thanks again!

Re: Clearing multi‑mapped glyphs

Thanks for your quick reply!

I thought about that method, but the only problem is I'm looking at 426 multi‑mapped glyphs...some of them have up to five or six codepoints. Any suggestions for how to speed up the process?

Clearing multi‑mapped glyphs

I'm working in a font in which many of the glyphs are multi‑mapped to each other. I can't figure out how to separate them into their own glyphs so that deleting or modifying one won't affect the others. For example, A is mapped to $41, $0391, $0410, $13AA, $E740, $102A0. If I delete $41, all the oth...

Re: Assigning key strokes

Indeed, I recommend using Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator, which is a free software and very easy to use. I've used it before to make my own custom keyboard (which I'm using right now, in fact, and I use it all the time as my default keyboard), and it allows me to easily type diacritic marks using...
