Bitcoin symbol not yet in FC unicode database

Wondering when the Bitcoin currency symbol (U+20BF) will be added to the FontCreator's unicode database? It was approved for Unicode 10 June 2017! Currently shows as "Undefined Character". Cheers, Kevin.

Indic Shaping Engine working?

Hi, I'm not sure whether this is due to something I am doing (or not doing) but I am having trouble getting the shaping for a Devanagari font to work in Preview and the OpenType Designer. I am absolutely positive that this was working with the same font in previous versions of FontCreator. I can't r...

Re: Some GSUB substitutions not displaying in Preview window

Such a restriction ie blocking Simple to Mark ligatures would certainly explain why this strange issue is occurring. Using Lookup Type 4 for Simple to Mark and Mark to Mark ligatures is definitely part of the standard methodology for Devanagari script - see Microsoft's doc "Developing OpenType Fonts...

Re: Some GSUB substitutions not displaying in Preview window

Thanks for your offer of assistance. As the project is commercial in nature and still in development I need to request a means of sending the file privately. Please let me know how I can send an attachment privately to you. Regards, Kevin.

[FIXED] Some GSUB substitutions not displaying in Preview window

Hi, I'm honestly not sure if this is a bug or not because I'm aware that the Font Creator Preview window does not necessarily give a full 100% representation of absolutely all features. I'm working with a Devanagari designed for the Universal Shaping Engine's Indic implementation. One of the lookups...

Re: Descriptive Names for Stylistic Sets

Thanks for that. Regarding applications that support Descriptive Names, I believe the MacOS Fonts Panel displays these names (in its Typography window). This would automatically provide access to the Descriptive Names to quite a wide variety of Mac applications - eg Sketch, NisusWriter, iBooks, Page...

Descriptive Names for Stylistic Sets

I'm wondering whether FontCreator is correctly interpreting the syntax for Descriptive Names in Stylistic Set feature scripts introduced as of OpenType specification 1.6. I did a Syntax Check in a font generated from FontLab that had three Stylistic Sets each with a featureName script at the start o...

[FIXED] Error in glyphnames.dat

There is an error in the glyphnames.dat file. "1F57E?whitetouchtonetelephone" should read "1F57E;whitetouchtonetelephone" (semicolon instead of question). Cheers, Kevin.

Re: Glyph Names

Thanks for that! I'll update that default glyphnames.dat file using the data in my own customised mapping file that I've been using for years in FontLab. I am curious about the source of the default glyphnames.dat file that FontCreator is using. Does anyone know - I've never seen many of those names...

Glyph Names

Hi, I'm new to Font Creator - a refugee from FontLab Studio (although still using it on Mac). I'm intrigued about Font Creator's apparent default Glyph Names protocol. I imported a TTF font generated from Mac FontLab Studio into Font Creator 11 Professional in order to check some OpenType code which...
