Re: Glyphs missing after exporting

As mentioned in the dialog that is shown before the Export dialog is shown, this is only happening during the trial period.

Re: Handshake error: Client protocol version is too high

Easiest (and highly recommended due to many fixes and improvements) is to upgrade to the latest version.

Alternatively you could try to fully uninstall MainType, and then manually delete this file:
C:\Windows\System32\hlfontlib.dll

Then reinstall the older version of MainType.

Re: Volt Project Export Problem

There are two mark features attached to Arabic, while there should be only one. The lookups should all be included in a single mark feature.

Re: Symbol font style

Yes, you have the correct version of FontCreator. You need to go to the Instances tab and then click the button at the right of the Style Name. Then you can see and edit the localized style names. Normal.png A non-variable font has one instance, while a variable font usually has numerous instances.

Re: 8-bit and 16-bit and 32-bit export

It seems you are talking about the 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit Unicode Transformation Formats, but those are not related to font formats. symbol.ttf is a font with a Symbol encoding id. Maybe that is the issue, but it might help if you better explain the issue. It might help if you convert from Symbol...

Re: Folders & Groups Not Showing in Groups Panel

For some reason MainType can no longer find fonts within the folders on your F drive.

Can you try to see if it can still detect folders on your C drive?

Re: Uninstalling Fonts Failure

Something caused the font service to crash. A reboot should solve the problem. Please be aware we fixed numerous issues with MainType 11, so we recommend to upgrade to the latest version.

Re: Brahmic scripts

If I were to design a Brahmic script like Tamil would it need to use a shaping engine like the Arabic fonts ? If it does then is this automatic or do I have to do something ? The shaping engine will do the magic, as long as the font contains the required OpenType layout features. See also: Developi...

Re: State Button Red for Adobe Fonts

These fonts are not installed, but only temporary loaded and for that reason the resource location is unknown. Currently there is no easy way to get more information about such fonts, but you can export the fonts to your file system (select the fonts, then right-click and select Export) and then add...

Re: Creating an ancient font

You need to ensure the contour direction is correct. You can read all about this in the user manual. That means I have to use quadratic beziers? Not really, unless you want to maintain overlapping contours, which is not recommended with non-variable fonts. You just need to make sure inner contours ...
