Re: Creating a single stroke ttf from ai files

Previous topics on CNC Engravers fonts seem to indicate that it's not possible or at least impractical using the TrueType format.

I have not heard of any change in recent versions, though this topic has come up several times over the years.

Re: Issue with Composites

That is because a number of code points in the PUA are used by the Complete Composites feature. Set the Glyph Overview to use Decimal code-points (Ctrl+J) If you have used any of these code-points (at the start of the PUA) for your bows, they will be used to compose accents for Uppercase accented co...

Hi, can anyone tell me how to use these kind of color font? Thank you very much!
Support for Colour Fonts is still very limited. Firefox and Vivaldi (Chrome) support them.

You can see A Test Page for my colour font, Odana. If your browser supports colour, the heading will be in colour.

Re: help - weird message

It means that you turned it off :)

Run it from the Windows Applications on the Start Menu to turn it on again.

To backup your font database, turn it off, then remember to turn it on again.

Re: How to display the "Complete Category" in a large category?

Try sorting the glyphs by Unicode code-points order from the Tools menu before trying to copy/paste.

Re: How to display the "Complete Category" in a large category?

See if Paste Special can do what you want. You can paste code-points, glyph names, and metrics, leaving any existing glyph outlines.

Re: How to display the "Complete Category" in a large category?

You may have reached the limit of how many glyphs can be inserted (65535). Try using the Insert Character dialogue and add the range in smaller sections.

Re: Out of Memory when saving Project or Exporting TTF

You can change the export settings to use CFF Postscript outlines, but the original curves are ragged, so the results won't be much better, though they may have fewer nodes. I don't have Adobe Illustrator here, but I was able to open your AI file in Serif PagePlus and DrawPlus. The problematic curve...

Re: Out of Memory when saving Project or Exporting TTF

FontCreator 9.1 only supports TrueType outlines so Postscript curves will be converted on import. This will increase the number of nodes. It looks to me, from your screenshot, that the image is being imported as a bitmap, not a vector. FontCreator 11.0 supports both Truetype and Postscript curves. 6...

Re: Sukhumala — A Graceful Font for Body text

I have now moved fij -> fij to discretionary ligatures. ​

If only liga is enabled, fij will use the fi ligature; if dlig is also enabled it will not.

Version 2.22 is now available for download.

However, that is much harder to type than íj.

Serif apps do not support locl features, so I cannot use that method.

Version 2.20 changed these to Discretionary Ligatures as they cause some problems for Spanish.
