Re: Glyph Names > Add PUA Unicode Values to Selected Glyphs

I did as you said now, made new character range for the Private Use Area code-points (999 of them), and copied my "unmapped" characters and special-pasted them into the new code-points but the opentype features didn't move to the new pasted glyphs, it stayed with the old ones (which is not what I n...

Re: Why can't I go beyond 512 pixels in the Preview window?

Those are points, not pixels. To me it looks like an issue with your font's metrics. In the glyph overview the displayed glyphs are tiny compared to the overview cells (compare to the incomplete © symbol), and the line-spacing in the Preview Toolbar is excessive. Some fonts like Cambria Maths requir...

Re: Open Type Designer

Did you read the tutorial on Adding OpenType Features ? Before you can add a lookup table for kerning pairs, you must add a kern feature. Before you can add a kern feature, you must add a script. If the OpenType Designer is blank, click on the Code Editor... button to add a default script and some d...

Re: Yellow Line and Preview Size

The orange line indicates that the glyph has been tagged. Press Ctrl+2 to toggle the tag off. The small size of the lowercase i is because the glyph is small compared to the maximum vertical extent of your font between WinAscent and WinDescent. Either that or you have zoomed out with Ctrl+Shift+Min...

Re: Display all fonts of a single character

I thought your post was a bit too far off-topic in the MainType thread where it was originally posted , so I moved it to where it may be discussed if anyone is interested. If I don't want a word to break, I disable hyphenation for that word by inserting a soft hyphen before the word. If the word joi...

Re: FontCreator 11.5 - Font name not Valid

Try reverting to the previous longer name and see if it still works.

Re: FontCreator 11.5 - Font name not Valid

Just an educated guess, but it might be that the font name is too long.

Try GoudyOldStyleSmCp-Bold.

Re: All new fonts are showing red dot

Help says:

The font is loaded by an external application and MainType cannot determine where it is located. The font cannot be unloaded through MainType

How, are you installing the fonts?

Re: Kerning Pairs

Forum images can be enlarged, by right-click, open in new tab.

The line-spacing issue where ascenders clash with descenders can be fixed by going to Font Properties, Metrics, Maximum, Calculate.

Also, is there any software program or website such as wordmark that will show me a live preview of just one font without having to open and close the program?
Try the WOFF font test (Shortcut Ctrl+F5).

Re: Kerning Pairs

On the single line font information, the "Font" tab referenced in the Options menu is not there in mine. Somewhere else maybe? no font tab.jpg You're apparently using an older version of Font Creator. If you go to your User Control Panel and Edit Your Forum Signature it will save you reminding us i...
