Re: Optimum height of the typo ascender

TypoAscender and TypoDescender are calculated as described in the tutorial and should give a good indication what is best related to the outlines in the font.

Line gap is a best guess, so feel free to change it to your liking.

Re: Font Sample Text in Windows Font Folder

Windows decides what to show based on the Unicode Character Range settings on the Ranges tab. I don't think there is a public document that explains what settings work, so do some experiments, but be aware some applications might rely on these settings.

Re: Optimum height of the typo ascender

Thank you I have read the vertical line spacing tips you suggested. I thought I understood the basic consepts of it but when I added up the typo ascender and descenders and with or without the line gap I could not get arial or times or Calibri to add up to 2048. They don't have to be 2048. Also the...

Re: The smallest valid font for Windows

I've made an even smaller font, 440 bytes! It is still valid in Windows 10, but it will no longer work in a web browser (Firefox).

(440 Bytes) Downloaded 7 times
So the above 540 bytes font is still the smallest font known today, that works in both Windows (Windows 10) and Web browsers (Microsoft Edge, Firefox).

Re: Optimum height of the typo ascender

I don't know the answer to your question, but maybe other people can give advice if you provide some screenshots.

The tutorial about Vertical Line Spacing might help you with setting correct values for your font.

Re: BASE Table

I'm sorry, but It didn't make it into version 12. It is still high on the to-do list, but so are a dozen other features. If more people request this enhancement, it is more likely we'll add it. Right now we're working a new major release for MainType. After that we'll go back to the upcoming FontCre...

Re: Problems with changing x-Height and CapHeight values

You can't do it with version 8. You need to upgrade to the latest version. It also comes with many more improvements, bug fixes, and enhancements.

See our upgrade page for more information.

Re: Program Freeze

I'm sorry about the inconvenience, but the only way to move on is to force FontCreator to end, and then start all over again. This used to be an issue a decade a go, but it seems there is still an issue here. We can only try to fix it, if you're able to reproduce it, and that is probably not going t...
