Relative Quality of a Font & FCP's Problem Report

Just curious here . . . Can you pretty much judge the quality of a font and the professional skill of that font's creator by the amount of problems reported via FCP's Problem Report feature? Could FCP ever be considered a bit too overzealous flagging things that aren't really a problem and aren't re...

Thank you for the reply! Sometimes when I read the complexity of the answer though, I'm almost sorry I asked! :wink: I just had no idea how complicated this font stuff was. I mean, of the two links, your post was pretty readable, but on the first time through the Microsoft white paper, I'd say I onl...

Font scaling and font smoothing

Before I delved into the FCP, I had always thought fonts were actually bitmaps - really, really big bitmaps - but bitmaps that then were scaled down to smaller sizes. Now I know better, but it brings an important question to mind. The thing is, running Windows XP with the font smoothing turned on, a...

Thanks for the replies. It looks, then, that the font is a converted or reworked font, the name of which I know not, and the original would not have had so many extraneous points. I'm just guessing at this and I would be pleased to be corrected. I would say you're probably right on the mark. I had i...

Ice'n Gothic Bold

I was hoping I could get a professional analysis of this font. http://www.extraxa.com/webposts/ICE044.TTF I can't take credit for it, in fact, it's a little bit sketchy because I plan on using this in a software program I'm releasing, but this is like the phantom font, it comes with a name of "Ice'n...

Ouch, my head hurts from reading that! :) Okay, it's just the terminology that's throwing me off, but when you read that as a font newbie, it's scary!!! Okay, so there are six values I need to change: Typo Ascender, Typo Descender, Win Ascent, Win Descent and the Ascender and Descender in the Header...

vertical spacing

There are so many new terms I'm trying to learn in this world of fonts, I don't even understand most of the questions here muchless the answers. I've got a really nice font I want to use in my program, but unfortunately, the vertical spaceing is way too large. Can someone please tell me how I would ...
