Re: Annoying advertising: Please make it go away.

I do not recall seeing it (I have FontCreator installed). I do not open MainType every day, or use it extensively. All of my fonts are now well organised, and I have not created any new fonts for some time. I only update my existing fonts when I find a bug, or if I want to improve the kerning. I re...

Re: Annoying advertising: Please make it go away.

The linked thread fixed a bug in MainType 8 that showed the advertisement when FontCreator is already installed. I do not recall seeing it (I have FontCreator installed), so it is probably not a bug in MainType. I therefore moved your thread to the Feature Requests forum. Does it appear again if you...

Re: Insert Contour tool connecting the wrong points

I can confirm the behaviour in FontCreator 14. You can upload screenshots using the Attachments tab below the edit message box.

Re: Digits inside Mark (Arabic endofayah)

How about adding English subtitles? That might be much less work than making a new video.

Legacy 'kern' Table The kern table is mostly useful for fonts to stay backwards compatible with older word-processing software, but we recommend that you no longer include it. Instead use OpenType Layout Features to include kerning (also known as pair adjustment). No - No legacy kern table is added...

Some older applications do not support OpenType kerning. If you include legacy kerning tables, that should fix kerning for them.

Just how old are the versions of Word and Photoshop that you are using?

Do they support kerning in other fonts?

Re: Stocking Font

A higher resolution image might be better. If you rotate and crop it first, it will be easier to identify the font.

Re: How should I set the font preview?

I used the same settings. I exported from FontCreator 10.1 and 13 with the same results. I suggest fixing the bugs in your font and not worrying too much about the preview. The Phonographic Copyright symbol belongs in Letterlike symbols, not the Private Use Area. There are loads of intersecting co-o...

Re: How should I set the font preview?

I don't have that version, but the font attached above was exported from FontCreator 10.1.

I think FontCreator is fixing any bugs in the font automatically. Does my attached font preview correctly for you?

Re: How should I set the font preview?

I get the same issue with your font, but if I export it from FontCreator, it previews OK.

Which version are you using?
