Re: Advanced Fractions

It took more effort in earlier versions since we had to write the code ourselves.

My Previous Thread may be the most relevant. Precomposed fractions refers to the fractions in Number Forms. More complex fractions can be generated from numerators and denominators.

Re: Add characters (ligatures etc.) to an already existing font

I don't use Word, and though I might be able to open the file in LibreOffice, since your free download is only once every two hours, I skipped it.

Why not attach the images to the forum? Crop them first to show just what is relevant to you topic to save space.

Re: Copy a glyph from a character to another

With the Home Edition, copying the accents to create composite glyphs (accented glyphs like Á, À, etc.)

To speed things up, copy several glyphs, then delete those that are not needed.

The remaining fractions in Unicode are in the Number Forms character set.

⅐⅑⅒⅓⅔⅕⅖⅗⅘⅙⅚⅛⅜⅝⅞⅟↉

Add an OpenType Fractions (frac) feature to type them with 1/7, 1/9, 1/10, 1/3 etc.

Re: modify copy of glyph

You obviously don't understand the issue. Exporting the glyph to a vector graphics program to edit it will not help. Font contours are either fully opaque or fully transparent, as in the zero 0: the outer contour is opaque (black) and the inner contour is transparent (white). Block drawing glyphs ca...

Re: forum link mistake

I can confirm the issue. The correct link to the forum is shown at the bottom of the FAQ page, but it should be at the top of the support page too.

Re: modify copy of glyph

Open the glyph in a glyph edit window and tell us how many contours there are. If there is only one contour, you will have to use the knife tool to cut it into five. Fonts don't support 50% transparency. Contours are usually black with a black fill, or a black outer contour with a reversed inner con...

Re: Spinner Controls

One can change side-bearings directly by dragging them.

Re: Auto complete glyph name in Transform Wizard

From the Tools menu, select Glyph names... Generate

That adds user-friendly glyph names for the entire font.

Does that fulfil your request?
