Re: How to create a large number of composites

You could try Insert Glyphs by Name and then provide a formula for each new glyph like: at_seven_five_three.liga=at+seven+five+three Etc. Then the feature generator available from the upper left toolbar in the OpenType Designer should be able to create the ligature (if all glyph components within th...

Re: Kerning classes not working

Latin Default is used by the shaping engine, and that lacks the kern feature. Add it there as well, and you are good to go!

Note: you can use the Proofing tool (second icon at the upper left toolbar) to see what is being applied.

Re: Export single glyph?

No, but you can copy and paste from FontCreator to most vector editing software, and then save as SVG from there.

Re: feature request: "Select Duplicates" feature in a folder view

The current implementation is not suitable to identify fonts in a single folder that are considered duplicates within your whole font library. It will not be easy to make it work per folder, so right now we have no intention to add such support. Maybe that changes if more people find this a useful e...

Re: Some issues regarding my font

And also, I showed the picture of my fonts metrics earlier, it's fine to have the Typo Ascender the same as the Win Ascent? And the same for Typo Descender and Win Descent? That is possible. To better understand the meaning of these values, I suggest you read this tutorial: Font Metrics – Vertical ...

Re: Some issues regarding my font

And for added difficulty, the HTML command writing-mode: vertical-rl and vertical-lr seems to only rotate text 90 degrees clockwise, which is fine for Mongolian where its letters are "upside-down" by default, but my letters are "right-side up" so when I use that command it doesn...

Re: Some issues regarding my font

I am intending to make a cursive, vertical, LTR conscript font. I should note that all of my glyphs are set to the Private Use area (E000 and beyond). Shaping engines rely on Unicode data. It allows text segmentation and it provides other data which is used to determine what OpenType layout feature...

Re: Some ligatures failing in .woff in Chrome and Edge

I am not sure why it fails with FC13, but the font generated by FC14 works just fine. See this web page:

We intend to release this new major version at the end of May and will invite people for beta testing in a couple of weeks.

Re: limit Library to fonts in system folder and actively attached folders

No, as MainType is mainly a font manager, not a font viewer. The whole architecture is build around the idea to manage fonts.

Re: feature request: File Path column in main fonts view

Perhaps in the situation where an identical font exists in multiple folders, the proposed column would show: "Font exists in multiple paths. Click here to view list." Since more people have requested this, we will consider it. If the user clicked, a list would pop up showing the various l...

Re: feature request: File Path column in main fonts view

This has been requested before, but a font file can be in hundreds of folders.
