Re: Alphabetically-sorted range list

They don't have to be. As long as the order is alphabetical, they're easy to find. The issue is not keeping same script blocks together, but navigating long lists of range names.
If it can be done, it is perfect.

Alphabetically-sorted range list

Pretty much what it says. While many fonts will probably have a small number of ranges, we unhappy few that have to work on 2- or 3-score number could see the advantage of not having to remember the Unicode order of ranges.

Uniform script name format

The vast majority of script names in FC-generated glyph names adhere to the 4-letter format, with notable exceptions: -canadianaboriginal -chorasmian -cuneiform -divesakuru -elymaic -khitansmallscript -nandinagari -nyiakengpuachuehmong -wancho -yezidi While "-wancho" isn't that much longer...

Re: diacritic stacking: positioning problem

Use a product like Exam Diff to compare the default and custom files.
Good to know, thank you.

Re: diacritic stacking: positioning problem

Thanks.
That's not so good. Have you considered an option where the user can select which xml file will be used, as in user, default, or both? Then in the case of both, all the default defs would be loaded, unless they also appeared in the user file, which would be used instead. Just an idea.

Re: diacritic stacking: positioning problem

And the famous last question: Copy the user data files to the user data folder and edit the copy. If it exists, FontCreator will use it in preference to the default CompositeData.xml file. As in instead of , *or* will use both , and if there are definitions for the same composites, the user-created ...

Re: diacritic stacking: positioning problem

Wonderful, thank you.
I think I got what I needed.

In spare time (sic!): I put together an xml file with what I understood about the CompositeData.xml and its rules. If it's correct, maybe it will help others.

Re: diacritic stacking: positioning problem

And this question is probably more for Erwin: 10. Are there tags that are mutually-exclusive - not logically, but programmatically - in that using both in one definition will result in error? 10. If you open CompositeData.xml in a browser it will be parsed and will stop at syntax errors. because I m...

Re: diacritic stacking: positioning problem

All code syntax words are case-sensitive Yes, I understand about the xml tags; I was asking about the values, other than <GlyphName> value, e.g. "Auto" vs. "auto", "TRUE" vs. "True" vs. "true", etc. If uppercase diacritics are defined in the font, e...

Re: diacritic stacking: positioning problem

And more questions: 10. Are there tags that are mutually-exclusive - not logically, but programmatically - in that using both in one definition will result in error? 11. Several tags designate decimal code-point - can all these cases use Hexadecimal instead? 12. In the case of fallback glyph members...

Re: diacritic stacking: positioning problem

Great :) The glyphnames or glyph mappings are used in the order in which they appear But: If glyphs are mapped to Uppercase diacritics they will be used in preference to regular sized diacritics over capitals It is allowable to mix <GlyphName> with <GlyphMapping> in the same definition but if both a...

Re: diacritic stacking: positioning problem

They are the decimal code-points of the defined glyphs. See the Complete Composites Tutorial Thank you. Having read the tutorial and the pdf, and after looking at CompositeData.xml, I still have some questions, if I may: 1. Can <InheritSB> with Boolean value be placed inside the <Member> tag? 2. Wh...

Re: diacritic stacking: positioning problem

And it's always fun figuring out how magic tricks work :wink:

On that note, where do the "<GlyphMapping>...</GlyphMapping>" values in the CompositeData.xml come from?

Glyph selector for Preview

In main view, select glyph(s), then Right-click > "Add to preview" option. In OT Designer, e.g. in MtB or MtM Positioning, a button "Add glyph" and "Add class": - if the selected class is Base (or Base+Mark), and no Mark class is chosen, preview would list all members o...
