Trouble installing fonts with Vista

Quite some time ago I believe I saw a message on the forum about not being able to install fonts in Windows Vista. Is this true or did my eyes deceive me? I haven't tried to install a new font created in FC5.5 since I have purchased my new computer with Vista, so I'm not sure if this is true. If thi...

Trouble installing partial font

I only needed to design 4 characters in my font. I saved it and tried to install the font, but I'm getting an "Installation Failed" message. Do you need to complete a whole font set in order to install it, or can partially completed fonts be installed? Thanks! Frank

Bhikkhu, I do notice it now only when 2 fonts are open in the Overview Window when toggling back and forth between the Edit and Overview windows. Thank you! Erwin, thank you for noticing and for fixing the bug. This was really not a big problem for me, it was just something I noticed and thought I s...

When zooming "out" on a glyph in the glyph edit window, you are also zooming "out", as you will see, when you go back to the glyph overview window.

I just tried what you suggested. I did not know that I can resize the box width and height in the overview window by hitting the + and - keys on the keyboard. It is possible that I was accidently hitting the plus and minus keys while exiting the glyph edit window. Hhmmmmm!

I've never noticed it in FC 5.0, but this is happening in 5.5. I am switching back and forth between windows by "X'-ing out of the edit window. I will try "Control - Tab" or "Control - F6" and see how that works. I am using a maximized view. Just to make sure you understand the trouble I'm having - ...

Glyph Overview Trouble

When editing in the edit window and switching back to the Glyph Overview window the size of the glyphs gets knocked down a size or two and sometimes even down in half. It may do this several times when flopping back and forth between windows until it's half the original size. Then I have to go to Op...

Moving default horizontal guide

I would like to move the default black horizontal line that resides below the red base line. Can this be done? I cannot seem to move this manually as I can with horizontal guides that I create myself. The reason for wanting to move this guide further down is when I'm creating a lower case y or any o...

Editing existing installed fonts

It's easy to edit an existing installed font (not my own created font in Font Creator, but it gets difficult once it has to be saved and using the new edited font. FC saves the changes to the newly edited font, but when I go to use the font, the word program won't allow me too. Do I have to delete t...

Can you lock left bearing at 0?

I know you can lock guidelines, but when I want to keep my left bearing at 0, it keeps moving when I start creating a new glyph or paste in an image. I always have to check the "Set left side bearing point at X=0" box to reset it to 0. Is there any way to lock that left side bearing at 0? Thanks! :w...

Minimizing glyphs in Glyph Overview window

Is it possible to minimize the amount of unwanted glyph cells in the glyph overview window (such as the greek alphabet) and other cells that one may never use? Also, what cells would one place alternate characters in to? Thanks, Frank. :D

Can square points (or nodes) be changed to round and vice ve

When editing a glyph, I noticed there are square points (or nodes) and round ones. I was wondering if square can be changed to round and vice versa. Because on curves there will be a square point (node) and it makes the curve look very choppy or pointy at that point, making the curve not so smooth l...

I am a sign painter who still letters by hand and would like to transform my hand painted styles into computer usable True Type fon...
