Re: Stylistic sets v Character Variants in open type

How do you access stylistic sets in word notepad or coreldraw? Notepad and Wordpad have no way to activate OpenType features, but the ones used to display complex scripts such as Arabic or Devanagari are enabled by default. In Word you can access them through the Font dialog, on the Advanced tab. S...

Re: Font Export

Oops, was focused on FontCreator...

I will do some tests, but so far we haven’t heard of this issue.

Re: Noto CJK fonts OTF to TTC export

You can extract fonts from an OpenType collection, and then open such font to export it with TrueType based outlines.

Re: Font Export

I really don't remember all features in that old version, and when we fixed or improved export related options. The current version comes with many bug fixes and improvements, so it might be best to upgrade.

Re: MainType 9 crashes trying to add a new font folder

Thank you for letting us know. That is a relief, as I honestly had no clue why that could still happen ;-)

Enjoy the software!

Re: Various improvements

Thank you for further clarifying your ideas. We are currently busy with FontCreator 13, which has been released this week. And we are also waiting to see comments from other MainType users, so please be patient. I'm mainly interested in 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.

I don't get any error with check for updates in FontCreator 12 build 2566. It tells me that FontCreator 13 is available. Try closing your font project first.
We fixed that issue by sending other update information from our website.

Re: Access Violation at address 0000000000B2D5EF

Is there any way I can look up the source of the problem anchors using the address/access violation and just fix it on my end? I've been working on this font for a while and didn't come up with any issues with the preview testing feature until I reworked the OTFs and added a few more anchors and ju...

Re: Colour fonts - SVG and CPAL and COLR

Alas, I have not kept up to date with OpenType developments. I asked about colour font support for the Serif Affinity Publisher program, and a recent post seems to suggest that SVG rather than the CPAL and COLR format is the thing now. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/78185-will-af...

Re: Colors Join OpenType Font Format

We've just released FontCreator 13, coming with support for both scalable color font extensions. So now you can create OpenType color fonts with either COLR, SVG (or both).
