Re: WOFF 2.0 support

Export all exports all formats of all open fonts, e.g. Regular, Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic.

Export as TTF or OTF has to be done four times (or more for large font families).

Re: Comparison, Preview, Kerning have different spacing

Puzzling. If I change the Export settings, Outline from CFF Postscript to TrueType then the lowercase display correctly in the Font Test window.

Re: Crash when trying to Export TTF/OFT

The export parameters are included in the font project file.

You deleted the .notdef glyph, which is required, but it still crashes on export if that is replaced from the original.

Re: Comparison, Preview, Kerning have different spacing

Difficult to tell what the problem is without the font project file *.fcp

Did you import the TTF and export it as OTF after making edits?

Re: Comparison, Preview, Kerning have different spacing

Try using FontCreator's Font Test Window. While that is open you can select the Test font in Word or any other application to test your font in that application.

Re: Comparison, Preview, Kerning have different spacing

The kern feature is not enabled in the Preview, and OpenType features are not enabled in the Comparison Toolbar.

A script font like this should not need kerning pairs for lowercase if the glyph metrics are correct.

Re: Font Colors are not working

If you check the trouble-shooting folder in the Overview panel, you will see that there are conflicts with the colour glyph members being different widths.

All members of a colour glyph must be the exact same advance width.

Re: Main Type version 7 will not open.

Click on Start to run the FontService, which need to be running for MainType to start, and needs to be stopped to make backups.

Re: Automatic re/creation of code-points

This is a very unusual workflow. What kind of font is this? Code-points are usually assigned then never changed again as any documents using the font would be modified with the next update.

Are the codepoints in the Private Use Area, or in the general Unicode character sets?

Re: Cannot add/delete/modify text sample ??

Try checking for updates.

I could not find any configuration files or Windows registry options for this.

If preview text is working, then the sample text should too. No problem here...

Re: WOFF 2.0 support

When working on a full set of fonts I use the Export All option, then delete the WOFF versions if I don't need them. For those fonts that don't need a WOFF version it would be better to disable WOFF export in the Export Settings. I also think None should be the default for new projects as probably t...

Re: WOFF 2.0 support

I see that the option to not export WOFF was not included. Did that turn out to be impractical?
