Re: BASE Table

It is high on the to-do list, so it is likely it will be included soon.

Re: Color font best practices

We've not experienced the slow behavior you describe.

Do send us the project file along with some instruction so we can try to reproduce the issue.

Re: Create Square box Around A Letter

That happens automatically unless the contours have the wrong direction. It is all explained in the user manual.

Re: How do I Create Alternate Fonts?

Backtrack is the sequence of glyphs before the actual contextual input, and lookahead is what comes after it. Say you only want to replace "f" "i" with a "fi" ligature if it precedes with and "i" and "c" "e" after it, then it would trigger the substitution tables if you type: magnificent but it woul...

Re: Web font test page: Basic Arabic Features not working

The way our font test page works is to test specific OpenType layout features. It has limitations, as web browsers won't use their default layout engine algorithm. You can better test Arabic in FontCreator, Word, or a hand made web test page. We might be able to add a switch into the font web page w...

Re: How do I Create Alternate Fonts?

It doesn’t help if you keep adding more requirements...

Even though it would be a nice challenge for a Sunday afternoon, I have other plans, so try to figure it out on your own.

Re: How do I Create Alternate Fonts?

I've used Garava to make a test case which contains OpenType layout feature code for 4 additional pseudo random character variants for all lower case Latin characters (a..z).

Due to the nature of processing text, each line resets the "randomness".

Re: How do I Create Alternate Fonts?

Even with this new information it is not clear to me what you try to accomplish.

Maybe the rand feature would do the trick?

Re: a problem about the Punctuation of cjk

So it doesn't support the vert feature, but it does support the vmtx table? Then do enable Vertical Spacing as explained here: http://www.high-logic.com/fontcreator/manual11/properties-metrics.html verticalspacing.png You can then show top and bottom bearings: http://www.high-logic.com/fontcreator/m...

Re: moving & dragging fonts not working

Are you dragging from within MainType, e.g. from one group to another? The groups panel supports drag and drop operations. You can drag groups to change their position, or drag fonts from any view into a group. The normal operation is to copy fonts, but you can press the CTRL key while drag/dropping...
