Invalid PANOSE Settings

If the Font Properties => PANOSE => Value is set to 2 -9-7-2-3-4-7-2-4-3 and you switch the Family Kind from 2 - Latin Text to 5 - Latin Symbol (Pictorial) (i.e. the Value is now 5 -9- 7 -2- 3 -4-7-2-4-3), then the 3rd and 5th PANOSE field retain their values 7 and 3 , which are not (technically) le...

Re: Name Table String Encodings

Never mind. Ooops sorry, mea culpa, and who let this guy out of the Home for Wayward Programmers ? I'm using an abstraction layer, which handles the encoding / decoding and presents most strings as UTF-8. It overloads read() and (ain't OOP wonderful) fooled me into thinking I was getting bytes rathe...

Name Table String Encodings

This is pretty arcane and may be the result of my lack of understanding … but … Case A . When Tools => Options => Font => Export Font => Exclude Legacy Data is checked. As expected, entries in the Name table (eg. Copyright) are output with a single string with platform = Windows (3), encoding = Unic...

Incorrect time zone on Date Created

It appears that FCP correctly converts the Date Modified field (head table) from local time to GMT on export, but it is not correct for the Date Created field. When I create a new font, the local time is written to Date Created rather than converting to GMT (as indicated in the 1.8.3 spec). When the...

Re: Export: Use Current Glyph Names fails (sometimes)

I found the problem ... it is not a problem with FontCreator ( sorry !). However, I am leaving this post, in case someone appears to have a similar issue. My problems was that I was examining the exported .TTF file in FontCreator itself. I had never changed the: Options => Generate friendly glyph na...

Export: Use Current Glyph Names fails (sometimes)

When I export a .TTF font with the Font Export Settings => TrueType/OpenType => Glyph Names field set to " Use current glyph names ", the exported glyph names are mostly mine, but some have been modified. I can't find a pattern, so I am including the full list... Just looking at glyphs at the beginn...

Re: FCP exported TTF font reported a Invalid

Wow ... thanks for the extraordinary speed of response! I have noticed that FontCreator takes any range that I enter for a mapping such as 1F000–​1FFF F and modifies it to 1F000–​1FFF E . However, for a range that ends in FFFF such as F000–​FFFF, the FFFF is not modified to FFFE. Just an observation...

Re: FCP exported TTF font reported a Invalid

Thank you Erwin ... I will distill the font down a bit to demonstrate the issue more clearly - save you from wading through a pile of glyphs. The Last Resort thing ... it is really an attempt to avoid issues with Microsoft Word, which causes havoc with it's font substitution policy. If the glyph isn...

Re: FCP exported TTF font reported a Invalid

After many tests, I have narrowed down the problem to a font with a glyph mapped to U+FFFF. Here are results from my testing: * A font with a single glyph mapped in the range $0870-$089F, $0B00-$ FFFF fails (i.e. "not a valid font"). * A font with a single glyph mapped in the range $0870-$089F, $0B0...
