This jump-to-default-position seems to vary even within applications. Does anyone know if a registry setting is involved, or if there's some similar way to achieve the effect? (I think Logitech was the first to use this "smart mouse" effect, but I didn't install my Logitech driver this time around, ...

Erwin--

I still use Typograf for managing my fonts. Since that first post was written, I've re-installed Windows, and that seems to have solved some of the problems with what's in C:\Windows\Fonts. I've also learned from the advice of other, more experienced people :D .

The first four glyph-edit windows

I'm editing a font that my Serif DrawPlus always looks for (and when it's not installed creates nagging error messages). Fortunately, uppercase and lowercase characters of the font are the same. I'm putting things I want to have handy (yet keep installed fonts few) in the lower-case glyph-edit windo...

I don't know enough to make a real request (save one), so I'll second those for manual hinting, automatic hinting, and embedded bitmaps.

The "save one" is this: support for mouse-button "undo"; it's a great time-saver, especially for catching a little mistake right away and moving on...

2 Different Left-Spacing Problems

First, a generality: I was exploring the Auto-Kern wizard, and created more difficulties than I solved; before I tried Auto-Kern, I'd be adjusting the bearings of various letters (wider for lowercase L, for instance). Then in the help file and on the forum here, I read something to the effect of 'ed...

Okay, I shall distill your suggestions and form a protocol. I use the number-suffixes for sequential variations when I use Paint Shop Pro and my icon editor, and I'll use them with my fonts.

Thanks for helping me be less confused!

Thank you both! I'll be just a bit more conservative when joining. As I said, I know graphics programs make computers and their OSs work hard sometimes. And I can say, too, that joining works just fine "most of the time." I wanted to be certain that I wasn't doing something at cross purposes with th...

an odd thought

I recently discovered that the two Franklin Gothic ttf fonts in C:\Windows\Fonts (WinXPpro) will reconstitute themselves in a matter of seconds after one deletes them. The odd thought is: what happens if one edits a Franklin Gothic font and tries to install the edited version? (I'm not in the least ...

two clicks, okay! ...when I begin the drag near the upper margin of the desired glyph's box (as opposed to the center) the problem seems to occur less often.

Would a kind soul please tell me the "proper" or best or easiest way to do these two things: Open a new font file, and name it in howsoever many ways so that it exists only as itself?

[No BUG] Joining Contours | Union--a bug?

I'm not succeeding at joining some pairs of contours, and my computer is getting stressed by the activity; I need to learn what I'm doing wrong--posted a question in the support forum--but Font Creator may be misbehaving as well. In the (false-color) screenshot, the blue is the stem of a capital I, ...

Two FC Newbie How-To Questions

In Edit-Contour Mode, is there a way to specify the location of a new point more exactly than by clicking on a point and finding the new point "ahead of" the old one?

And can one set bearings... {edit: I found the answer.}
Thanks for helping!
