Re: BASE Table

It is high on the to-do list, so it is likely it will be included soon. Hi Erwin, Just checking when you expect the base table to be supported in FontCreator. I have had another request for my Tibetan font to include baseline metrics, as at present Tibetan text set in my font has to be manually adj...

Build 11.5.0.2430 takes much longer to export a large font to TTF than previously

Hi Erwin, I've noticed that since updating to Build 11.5.0.2430, it takes considerably longer to export a very large font than previously. My large CJK font with over 50,000 glyphs used to take about 3-4 minutes to export to TTF, but with the new build it now takes 10-11 minutes. Is there any explan...

BASE Table

Hi,

Would it be possible to support the Baseline table (BASE)? I have a Tibetan font where it would be useful to specify the baseline as "hang", as recommended by Microsoft.

Re: Format 14 cmap subtable

Is this feature necessary for implementing the use of variation sequences in explicitly choosing between a monochrome emoji glyph and a colourful emoji glyph to display? Yes, it is. Support for Unicode variation sequences is required by font developers working on emoji fonts, as well as those worki...

Re: Format 14 cmap subtable

Hi Erwin,

I tried out the test version you sent me, and it looks great. I loaded a few fonts with Unicode variation sequences for various scripts, and the dialog lists them all correctly. With the addition of import/export functionality it will be all I need.

Thanks,

Andrew

Re: Format 14 cmap subtable

Dear Erwin,

Thank you very much! Having a way to import and export the sequences in text format is all I need.

Best wishes,

Re: 64-bit version loses code-point mappings for supra-BMP characters

The problem also occurs with the 32-bit version. I opened the ttf font file for my large Chinese font in Font Creator 32-bit (all code-point mappings are correct). Then I export the font under a new name, and when I open the new ttf font file code-point mappings for all supra-BMP characters have bee...

[FIXED] 64-bit version loses code-point mappings for supra-BMP characters

I have been using the 64-bit version of Font Creator 11.0 this evening to edit my large Chinese font, which has nearly 14,000 characters outside the BMP (i.e. greater than U+FFFF), and on two occasions after saving the project all the supra-BMP characters in the font lost their code-point mappings. ...

Re: [FIXED] Cannot save project with 10.1

Hi Erwin,

Many thanks for releasing a 64-bit version. I installed it today, and so far I do not have the "out of memory" rror for my huge font any longer, and I can finally save the font as a project rather than opening the ttf file every time.

Re: Modifying glyph names

What I would now like to request is being able to paste glyph names into selected glyphs. I would also very much welcome some way to batch change glyph names. For me the most useful feature would be to open glyph names in a simple text editor (similar to how the OpenType features can be edited as a...

[FIXED] Import negative image not working correctly

With latest 10.1 release I just tried importing a negative glyph image. I checked "Negative" and adjusted the threshold until the image was as clear as possible, but when I clicked the generate button the imported image was just a big black rectangle. If I do not check "Negative" then the negative g...

Re: Format 14 cmap subtable

As a software developer myself I can understand that it may not seem like a priority for you. Nevertheless, Format 14 cmap subtable is supported by other font editors, and Unicode variation sequences are getting more and more widely implemented, especially for CJK fonts as the Ideographic Variation ...

Re: Support for vhea and vmtx tables

Thank you, that is very welcome news. Adding support for vertical layout to my CJK fonts is a very high priority for me, so I hope you will be able to add support for these tables in the next major release.
