Re: Constant crashing

We're not aware of any stability issues, so I'll contact you to further look into this issue.

Re: MainType Pro - v8.0.0.1135 (64-bit) - Failed Fonts

Within MainType select Invalid Font Resources from the Tools menu to view fonts that are considered invalid.

Re: otf/ttf export works on PC but MAC errors... why?

We've always been able to successfully install fonts on a Mac, so I'm not sure why that warning occurs. Maybe they test for legacy naming fields, but maybe it is a bug in FontCreator.

Can you send me both font files, so I can look into the differences?

Re: Zoom Window Scroll

We were not able to reproduce the issue concerning Erica's "P".

Most of the time the character is displayed just fine, somewhere in the center of the panel, so in some cases you might have to lower the point size.

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

Bhikkhu Pesala suggests you put all your fonts in one package, so you only have to provide one file.

Re: otf/ttf export works on PC but MAC errors... why?

It seems they have a new tool to pre-analyze fonts when you submit them.

Can you send the font file to me (contact on the right side), so I can look into any issues on our side?

Re: otf/ttf export works on PC but MAC errors... why?

Or is it the font install feature within FontBook on a Mac?

Is that alright if I do that, just edit my original post, delete all the fonts in there, and simply provide a link to my website instead?
Sure no problem.

The "font validator" on the upload does "not pass" on the "Will Install on MAC OS X and macOS" test.
Can you explain what this is all about?

Is it a website where you can submit fonts or an online font validator?

Re: Printing-to-PDF the character set

Microsoft Word also comes with an option to Export as PDF. I don't know if that makes a difference.

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

I've looked into it again, and can confirm the issue. It is due to the auto hinter which somehow produces a corrupt font. For now disable autohinting on exporting the font and it should work.

Re: Arabic VS English - localized Feature

You could add a single substitution lookup to the standard ligatures feature (liga) or to the contextual alternates feature (calt) for Latin script.

Re: I am trying to make a font with some stylistic alternates

You need to include the feature to the script as follows:

Code: Select all

script latn {
  # Latin
  feature StandardLigatures1;
  feature StylisticAlternates;
}

Re: Ligatures, substitutions and scripts

You’re almost there!

Try this:

Code: Select all

script latn {
feature Ligatures;
}
This is also described in the manual:
