Re: Slash bug

It is not a bug but a feature which allows you to use a glyph name instead of the character.

Try this:

12 + /one/two equals 24 and 6 // 3 = 2 so it works great /exclam

Re: Dminx!

Earlier releases of FontCreator 11 did have this bug, but the latest version should no longer generate such faulty fonts.

Re: Dminx!

I'm glad it is now solved. Maybe it was due to Windows caching, but to be sure send the font file to me next time such strange thing happens.

Re: More details

a comments section on each font so you can list compatible fonts, project file names, cost of font etc. Or a link feature so I can create links between fonts that work together. Sometimes fonts come as duos and sets and being able to grab those or be alerted that they are part of a group would be h...

Re: "Main database and vault signatures do not match or are invalid" error

I'm sorry about the inconvenience. Do a full uninstall, and then reinstall the font manager. This should fully reset MainType.

Let us know your results.

Re: Yes italic, no regular

You must have confused it. Magbe a reboot helps. Otherwse clearing the font cache might help. Did both -- same problem is still there. :( To be sure it isn't an issue with the fonts, do change the font family name, and then see if that family works fine. If it works fine, then the issue is not on o...

Re: Yes italic, no regular

Ah, thanks, Erwin! Stupid me, I had that checkbox for "Generate the following naming fields automatically (recommended)" checked off, so everything was grayed out and I guess I didn't notice it -- and now I do see that "Unique Font Identifier" field, too, of course (that I'd seen before). I'm just ...

Re: Correct display of font characters in font programs

Re: Moving fonts back in from Illustrator

That moght be an issue, but it is still easy to copyand paste from Fontcreator to AI and back. That should preserve size and position.
