Re: License suggestions?

Better ask for a voluntary donation.

Re: License suggestions?

I can only suggest "Pile them high and sell them cheap." Unless you have the fund to pursue copyright infringement, it makes no sense to charge the same as the big foundries do. If you only ask for $5 some users might be happy to pay, but of course you will need a PayPal account or some other easy w...

Re: AutoMetrics & AutoKern Greek & Extended Greek characters ONLY?

They didn't have FontCreator or Autometrics in the time of the Greeks. A workaround is to paste the Greek glyphs to the Latin code-points in a new font, run autometrics there, then copy/paste the glyphs with their new metrics using paste special. No warranty comes with this workaround. Try running A...

The .notdef glyph is required. Insert a glyph before the first glyph, and copy the code-points etc., from a font that does have one using paste special.

Re: Naming (and font properties) for a font family

Italic glyphs are different to regular glyphs. Modern fonts with "italics" that are just slanted should be called "oblique." I see no problem with grouping Alde Regular in the same family as Alde Italic. If you keep the name Alde Black Letter, at least the fonts will appear next to each other in fon...

Re: Naming (and font properties) for a font family

Re: Right to Left Script

Is this ancient script supported by Unicode?

If it is, create a Custom Template with the correct code-points. Applications that support right to left scripts will detect that the characters are intended to be displayed right to left.

Re: Contextual Alternates problems.

Sorry, I missed your reply.

Contextual substitutions features are hard for me too.

You will find one example of code for a contextual lookup in this thread on fractions

Re: Sukhumala • A Graceful Font for Body text

Sukhumala, Pali, and Acariya are all the same. They use a ligature for fi, but not for fij.
