Re: Indesign CC 2018/19

We've asked our plugin developer to make a new release for Adobe InDesign 2019. It will probably take a couple of weeks, so please be patient.

Re: Ongoing Problem Printing PDF Font Exemplars...

Is it the PDF generator or MainType who causes the crashes?

If it is MainType, then we might be able to look into it, but if it is related to the PDF generator it is obviously out of scope.

Providing us more detailed information will help us understand the exact cause of the problems.

Re: Font Creator upgrade

FontCreator 12 will not be released this year, but since the recent version of FontCreator contains many improvements and bug fixes, it is strongly recommended to upgrade to it. We released FontCreator 7 in 2013, so it is likely we'll remove it from our website later this year. It is not fully compa...

Re: Pair adjustment ignored or generating error

You can mix them (FontCreator will then treat a glyph as a glyph class with a single glyph) but be aware a class-based kern subtable can only hold classes that don't overlap. If they overlap, FontCreator will export the subtable as flattened kern pairs. To check whether subtables contain overlapping...

Re: Login Not being remembered

The forced redirect from http to https is now working, so this shouldn't be an issue anymore.

Re: Font Direction Hint Setting

This information is not stored within fonts, but defined by the Unicode consortium. You could start your text with the right-to-left override (RLO) character (code point $202E) which tells the word processing engine to process the remaining characters from right to left (RTL). Here is the text "hell...

Re: Reducing cubic bezier to quadratic

1) Does Fontcreator support export to this format : eot ttf svg woff woff2 ? . FontCreator exports your font as ttf otf woff and woff2. The other two formats are not supported as those are no longer needed as all web browsers support woff. 2) i import a svg file doing copy paste from illustrator CS...

Re: Login Not being remembered

It is because the forum now runs with https by default and that url is http.

I'll see if I can provide a redirect to fix it server side.

Re: Cursive font the letters do not connect properly

I'm afraid there is no easy answer, but I suggest you take a closer look at other script fonts to see how they cope with this.

Within FontCreator is helps to show some text before and after the glyph you are editing. You can enable this through the Comparison tool panel.

Re: Runic unicode block and bearings

You will have to manually set the bearings for non Latin characters.

We might consider adding support for Optical Metrics for other Unicode blocks or even a general one, if more people think this would help with their font development.
