Re: Registration code

Are you still using FontCreator 11, or have you downloaded a more recent version?

Re: Help: Ctrl+E Shortcut

I suppose that there are still some who are using Font Creator 11.5.

The manual still gives the shortcut Ctrl+E as Paste Special.

The manuals for FontCreator 12 and 13 have been updated. Was the shortcut ever changed in FontCreator 11.5 or only in later versions?

Re: Using knife tool converts all contours to quadratic

So this behavior seems to be intended, and not a bug. However, it's quite annoying when curve type suddenly changes :? No change in FontCreator 13. It may be easy to fix as convert to cubic is already available on the context menu. The curve type is shown in the Status line so it is easy enough to ...

Re: Character or Glyph. What is the Difference?

Here is a slideshow of a preview of my font in FontCreator, showing the effect of enabling various OpenType features. The rocket is a coloured character, which is mapped to decimal code-point 128640 (1F680 hexadecimal) in the Unicode Character Set, Transport and Map Symbols. It has coloured glyph me...

Re: Character or Glyph. What is the Difference?

Total noobs are welcome here, even if they are really trying. :wink: A glyph may be mapped or unmapped to a Unicode code-point. If it is mapped the glyph is also a character, if it is unmapped, it is just a glyph (a shape). Many fonts, like Linotype Palatino contain a number of unmapped glyphs for u...

Re: Sukhumala • A Graceful Font for Body text

I have published version 2.42 of Sukhumala, although it is still some way from being finished. If I don't do any more, at least people will have a usable font now. I am already using it for my latest publications.

Re: Unable to Paste from PhotoShop into a Glyph Edit Window

So what about pasting an image? FontCreator very rarely gets worse with any updates. If you are having problems now that you did not have previously, something may have changed at your end.

Re: Unable to Paste from PhotoShop into a Glyph Edit Window

But, Erwin, if you have changed things with the latest version 12.0.0.2567, such that you can no longer paste a glyph image, as before, how is that to be regarded as an improvement? And along similar lines, you helped me to get my version 12.0.0.2567 to "stick" on my computer. But now, I am noticin...

Re: Shortcut for Adding Anchor in Glyph Edit Window

Post split from implemented feature request. The most efficient method to add an anchor is to right-click where you want to add the anchor, then press the access key "n". Add Anchor.png This brings up the Add Anchor dialog with the co-ordinates already entered. Any shortcut could, at best, open the...

Re: Unable to Paste from PhotoShop into a Glyph Edit Window

Is the glyph empty, simple, or a composite glyph?

Can you paste the clipboard contents into Windows Paint or IrfanView?

Re: Sukhumala • A Graceful Font for Body text

June 2020 ver 2.40 This is still work in progress, but I attach it here in the hope of some feedback. I am sure there are some bugs that I still need to fix before it is ready for publication. I have made many changes since the last release in September 2018. Here is a short list of the most signif...

Re: Toggle Zoom to Selected and Zoom to Default Zoom

This will save me a lot of time as I am fixing a number of glyphs in my Sukhumala font, which has five type styles.
