Re: Add OpenType editor

You can test ligatures of your font in Windows if you "install files for complex scripts..." in the Languages settings in the Control Panel. After that you'll see ligatures inside Notepad, but still NOT in Word 2007. (That fix is for Windows XP. Vista's Notepad shows ligatures out-of-the-box). Curio...

What are these tables?

What do these names stand for?: TSID, TSIP, TSIS and TSIV VOLT does not have a facility to add characters, not one I could find. It does not have any help anywhere.

Adding and deleting codepoints

FC is fantastic for making a large orthographic font for a minority language. I have a serious problem, though. I am making a font that requires many glyphs (approaching 4000) in the PUA of BMP. With many trials and errors, I found that FontCreator remembers added codepoints but not very well. SCENA...

VOLT and protection

I use MS VOLT to create the font database. Is there a way to compile the font in such a manner that the database cannot be viewed any more?

Ligatures work only in Notepad

I have many ligatures and they all test well. (Latin, Latin-1 code blocks)

The problem is that the ligatures work only in Notepad on Windows XP SP2 version! Not MS Word, Not Macintosh.

Any knowledge on this?

Thanks.
