Re: (ARABIC) Mark Positioning

Select the feature (MarkPositioning) on the left side, then right-click and select New Item to add a mark to base lookup. From there add the base and mark glyph classes.

Re: (ARABIC) Mark Positioning

Do use the class manager to define the two groups of marks, then add those to the mark positioning lookup.

Re: Tag search doesn't show all matches until service restarted

It might be a little confusing, but this is by design, so people can re-tag fonts without being interrupted by a refresh.

Nevertheless, we'll add this quirk to our to-do list, so we can see if there is room for improvement.

Re: Disabling real-time validation disables "Correct contour directions" button

We can confirm it isn't very intuitive but need to look into it to see if we have to disable the other fix features as well.

Re: New Symbol font created with FontCreator 11.5 won't load in Windows

It must be something we've fixed over the last couple of weeks, but haven't released yet.

We'll expect to release an update later this month, which should solve the issue.

Re: New Symbol font created with FontCreator 11.5 won't load in Windows

I've used the font project file and also followed your instructions, but both export a valid symbol font.

You might have changed some font properties that are specific to a symbol font. Please can you send us a copy of the corrupt font file?

Re: Hello, font groups won't uninstall

It must be a sync fobt folder.

It is best to upgrade to the latest version, but even with your version it can be deleted through font folders.

Re: Caladea Regular Displays as Italic

We've been able to reproduce the issue, and will further investigate it. It looks like Word doesn't recognize Caladea Bolt Italic, because it has an incorrect font subfamily name (Italic instead of the expected Bold Italic). Uninstalling all but Regular solves the issue, so the font names are incorr...

Re: What does "Outline Issues" mean?

If outlines or side bearings are not as expected, then such warning may appear.

The fist glyph might seem just fine, but I wonder if your second glyph (Hebrew letter yod with hiriq) has correct side bearings. Maybe someone with more insights in Hebrew can shed some light on this?

Re: How to convert 3/4 to proper fractions?

I was hoping for a solution so that any possible fraction in the form of x/x could be converted to the proper fraction. Our daughter of 9 is at this moment 4th grade of the primary school, so fractions are not too big. I will ask her about the biggest fraction she needs. The fractions are used for ...

Re: How to convert 3/4 to proper fractions?

I'm glad we were able to get you started in the right direction. I intend to draw the fractions I need with Affinity Designer. I already found in the user manual that I have to draw within a bounding box of 300 x 300 pixels for good results. Our small one also use different numeric characters, so I ...
