Re: 'MATH'

Just a little more for clarity. Abstract conceptualization. That's how my mind works. GPOS: glyph vs glyph. MATH: box vs box.

Re: 'MATH'

GPOS. Not an option. For example, in the v6.0 Unicode block "Mathematical Operators" there are just 255 glyphs. To cover cover 255 different combinations you would need factorial 255! = 3.350850684 E+504 entries. Or so I think. Now the MATH table is a mechanism in which a series of glyphs in a formu...

Re: 'MATH'

Well, FontCreator could implement the 'MATH' table by presenting the editable data in a window. This way one could edit those fields and see how there formulas are displayed using the fonts glyph's with Office Word. A tweaking process. The number of fonts using the 'MATH' table is very low. I suspec...

In your minds eye...

Re: What feature do you want to see in the next release?

I may be way off the mark here ,but, here it comes : GPOS. I'm thinking one could create a font with all chars on the base line and use GPOS to position them as desired. For example, with the numbers 0..9 in sub/superscript size, just one glyph qould be needed for subscript, superscript, underscript...

Insert Characters

The lower case letter "n" ($006E) does not insert in the lower case group of "a..z" ($0061 - $007A). I'm using version 6.1.
