Re: Results of automatic kerning (AutoKern) seem OK in FontCreator Test tool but never outside of it (Word,Photoshop,onl

Thank you Bhikkhu! Yes, they are both quite old, but the problem also appears online when I post the fonts to Dafont or 1001fonts for example. The kerning looks odd in their preview boxes too. As far as I know dafont does not support OpenType layout features, so modern kerning fails in their previe...

Re: Font format required for a website

Most browsers will request the woff2 source. The other files are required for older browsers, so they can also show the web font.

Woff2 uses less bandwidth and is faster to download.

Usually server storage is not an issue, but it is up to you what you prefer to do.

Re: Font Management in Free Version

If I remember rightly, the free version is the fully featured Pro version during the 30-day trial period, so you can evaluate it to see if it suits your needs before purchase. That is how it used to be, but now it is working as shown here: https://www.high-logic.com/font-manager/maintype/comparison...

Re: WWS Family

I should add, FontForge talks about PFM families, a feature I didn’t find in FontCreator. Could it be the same thing? I don't know FontForge, so I can't answer your question. It seems like a more generic font name, but better read their documentation, or ask for support at their site. The user manu...

Maybe it depends on the Unicode Character Ranges in the font. But I don't think your goal is to include Greek or Arabic.

It is not a bug, FontCreator does not support it. It does support a volt script.

It is a setting in Word.

You either need to make a Symbol font, or ensure the characters in the font's name are also included as glyphs in the font.

Re: FontCreator 14 PRO. Export front as.

that a bold font with the name Krukholm becomes, Font Regular.otf? or Font Regular.ttf? Why may I not keep the name Krukholm, as the file name? It's still a big mistake/bug. why rename the file, when Bhikkhu Pesala writes that the name has no meaning? every time I change the file. I must first dele...

Re: FontCreator 14 PRO. Export front as.

I am not sure what you want to show us with your last post. The user manual is not updated yet, it takes more time than expected. As Bhikkhu Pesala already explained, the font export feature is now based on a folder, as with variable fonts, you need to be able to export multiple font instances at on...

Re: I can't reach your site and when I enter the registration code

It seems you can access this forum, so something is working.

We have blocked several ip addresses due to illegal activities. Can you explain if this is what causes the trouble on your side?

Re: How to sepcify extra unicode glyph property like Bidi_Class?

There is no way you can set this in a font. Sure you can override several character properties so the preview in FontCreator will use RTL, but it will always show LTR in external software. To make it work in external software you need to use Arabic characters and use substitutions to your other glyp...
