Re: How do we assign all Widths and Weights as font styles?

Thank you for the additional feedback. I'll try to add some more information about this to the manual, so it becomes more obvious.

Re: How do we assign all Widths and Weights as font styles?

Re: font installs but cant find it or use it

If it is installed it is available, so maybe you are not looking for the actual font name?

Re: Sukhumala — A Graceful Font for Body text

Re: Sukhumala — A Graceful Font for Body text

Maybe you should consider using this as standard ligature

sub iacute j acutecomb -> iacute_j;

íj́

Then move this ligature

sub f i j -> f_i_j;

to either a specific Dutch language feature, or move it to the Discretionary Ligatures.

The restore feature will restore all your fonts, tag, ratings, etc.

Re: After restoring backup - nothing actually happens

The restore feature will restore all your fonts, tag, ratings, etc. It will not automatically reinstall specific fonts. If you want to reinstall them, you could tag all your installed fonts, for example give them the tag "Installed". Then when you restore, you can select all fonts which are tagged "...

Re: After backup nothing actually happens

A backup is just making a copy of your existing font library data. It won’t add new fonts.

To add fonts use the font folders dialog.

Re: Advanced Naming Fields

The extended naming fields look fine to me, so I'm not sure if that is the issue.
