Re: Complete Composites

I have updated CompositeData.xml for Unicode 10.00 with a couple of new definitions. A symbol for Bitcoin has been added to currency symbols. Complete Composites will compose it from Capital B and Vertical Line |. Some minor adjustments may be needed. Bitcoin.png Please start a new thread in the sup...

Re: Customising Unicode Data

Updated the attachment UnicodeData.zip to the earlier post for Unicode 10.0.

To restore Unicode Blocks that you need, exit FontCreator, edit Blocks.txt and delete the # comment code before any lines for blocks that you need.

Re: Auto assign font tags

I fixed the broken link in my earlier reply.

Erwin replied to that thread, stating the reasons why it did not make it into MainType yet.

Re: Auto assign font tags

You can try the Free Version to see what it can do before purchasing the license that you would need to manage a large library of fonts.

There is currently no way to sort fonts by PANOSE information, but several ways of filtering fonts by style, weight, etc.

Re: Modifying glyph names

You might find it easier if you select some glyphs first, but I agree that showing the glyphs to be edited in a column on the Glyph Edit dialogue would be helpful.

If you tell us what your specific needs are, it may help us to find a workaround.

Re: Glyphs List Select Button from Codepoint(s), implement please

If characters already exist in a font you cannot add them using the Insert Character dialogue, so it is not clear what you are trying to achieve.

If the aim is to select a number of characters to add to another font, you can simply use copy and paste.

Re: Balava OpenType - A Transitional Typeface

Version 1.70 replaced Romanian localised forms with a Stylistic Set. Irony punctuation reversed question mark is a Standard Ligature substitution for ??, while Interrobang replaces ?! and inverse interrobang replaces ¿¡. Super/subscript glyphs (×÷) and thin space were added for use with fractions. K...

Re: How can a font collector identify supported OpenType features?

The TrueType Viewer can view and test features (you need the download with the qt-mt230nc.dll), but it's dated and can only view one font at a time.

It would be a great feature to add to MainType.

Re: The jè mark, a Dutch "ty­po­graphic shrug"

Do we really need this‽

If anyone wants a different design, just use the existing code-point for interrobang or reversed question mark. I don't think it will catch on. It's a long hard route to Unicode approval, and without that, it's dead in the water.

Re: Add a new colored glyph (from a .png) to a TTF font

Try searching and reading on Typedrawers. There may well be a practical method, but not yet with FontCreator.

Re: Add a new colored glyph (from a .png) to a TTF font

Maybe font creator can be OK, if when we gave an png image font creator can automatically create the n layers for each colors (doesn't matter if their is a lot of layers if font creator can do it automatically) You're wasting your time posting here about this. FontCreator cannot use a PNG to make c...
