Re: Communicating with developers team

In general we don't respond to unsolicited messages. Usually even reading them is a waste of time. In your case I did read it, but couldn't see any benefits.

We are not interested in optimizing algorithms right now.

Re: How can a font collector identify supported OpenType features?

This would indeed be a feature that suits MainType. I've been thinking about adding some support like the OpenType Preview feature as available in FontCreator, but that is per font.

Re: Kerning not recognizing all subtables

The problem is related to class based kerning. Class based kerning is stored in a two dimensional array; which is made out of first glyph classes and second glyph classes. If a specific pair is not included in the pair list, it will still be stored in the pair positioning lookup. In most cases this ...

Re: New Character

They will work, just copy and paste this line of text:



Re: Kerning not recognizing all subtables

Re: Site malfunction?

I think the server doesn't allow us to send mass mailings. Fortunately most frequent visitors will not give up. The cache issue will solve by itself, but I'm not sure how long a web browser caches css files.
