Re: The font is not fully displayed in Word.

All glyph contours should fit between the WinAscent and Windescent lines.

Calculate the font metrics for Horizontal Writing Mode from the Font Properties, Metrics tab.

Save Layouts

I have a dual monitor system: Primary 1200x1600 portrait, and Secondary 1920x1080 landscape.

It would be nice to be able to save FontCreator layouts, like we can with MainType.

One can work around it by exporting Windows registry keys, but that is only for Geeks.

Re: Export/Install font hangs

There have been a lot of bug fixes in the last official release on April 25th.

Is it time to update the Changelog?

Re: Suggestion: Detach the Test Font window

The font test window uses a temporary font, so you have to relaunch it to see any changes to the font. The preview panel is the right place to see dynamic changes.

Re: is it possible to paste contours to others glyphs with keep the orignal content

I think you will have to paste the contours to one glyph at a time in Glyph Edit mode. By using shortcuts to navigate to the next glyph, this process is not difficult for a few dozen glyphs. Alt+Right, Ctrl+V, Alt+Right, Ctrl+V ... If you need to edit hundreds of glyphs, you might need to look for a...

No. This makes it worse. On changing the layout, MainType disappears from view, though the icon is still on the taskbar.

Re: ViewPanel has huge gaps between entries

I can confirm that the application window disappears briefly after startup.

Not a big issue, but slightly distracting.

Re: ViewPanel has huge gaps between entries

I see the opposite bug. On resizing the Views Panel, the spacing becomes much tighter, but there is obviously a bug here.

Re: Font Creator 15 2973 Bold and Thin Issue

It is up to you, the Font Designer, to fix a few issues like intersecting contours manually. There will usually be edge-cases that need manual adjustment after the automated glyph transformations have done what they can. With experience, one knows where to look, and FontCreator’s built in validation...

Re: Ligatures - two simple questions

Ligatures are not what you need. What you are doing is creating a cursive font , for which you need to use Contextual Alternates . For this, you need to create two or more versions of some letters and use an OpenType feature to substitute the appropriate glyph dependent on the context. This alternat...
