Re: Petite Capitals script

Bhikkhu said: Accents over lowercase and Petite Capitals are not moved vertically. Perhaps a little ambiguity here. Prior to "complete composites" there are no "accents over lowercase", they have yet to be placed. ... PS In writing this, I think a relatively easy solution has occurred to me :idea: ...

Re: Customising Unicode Data

I have updated Blocks.txt and UnicodeData.txt for Unicode Standard 11.0. The task was made easier with a freeware text file comparison tool called ExamDiff To avoid modifying the default Unicode data files installed with the program, create a folder named "Unicode" in your Application Data Folder. T...

Re: Petite Capitals script

What you need to understand is that it is not my software. I objected to your comment about a weapon of mass de-construction, which was a direct result of not reading the online help. If you don't wish to compose composites for existing simple glyphs do not select them.

Re: Petite Capitals script

So, "complete composites" may be seen as a weapon of mass de-construction because it blindly overwrites prior creations. There is always undo if the result is not what you expect. New users should read the tutorial. Having spent hundreds of hours writing tutorials in my free time I am not very symp...

Re: Petite Capitals script

I was under the impression that it was an optional procedure to be employed where there was not enough room for the accents` The low profile accents are optional for uppercase accented glyphs to save space. These smaller accents are also better suited for use with Petite Capitals. After running the...

Re: Petite Capitals script

Here is a quick edit of your font to show what I would do with it. I adjusted the scale factor for Petite Caps to 73 horizontal and 69.10 vertical. Take a look, then adapt your scripts to suit whatever you need. After running the Petite Capital script you should manually adjust the serifs, which wil...

Re: Petite Capitals script

A few observations: The acute and grave accents are in the right position, but the other modifier accents from circumflex to hungarumlaut are below the x-height. The usual position is about half-way between the x-height and CapHeight metric lines. None of the accented glyphs are composites. If you u...

Re: Petite Capitals script

As my screenshot shows, the Y position of the lowprofile diacritics is zero.

Please attach your CompositeData.xml file and Petite Capitals Transform script from AppData. Zip them together with your font project if you're willing to share that.

Re: Behaviour of Input Fields

You really must learn how to report bugs effectively. Rants drive me crazy :roll:
  1. Be polite: Erwin is the sole developer. He is not "you folks."
  2. Since it is a new topic, start a new thread in the right forum.
  3. Be specific about the behaviour that you think is buggy.
Thanks

Re: Petite Capitals script

Don't be loath to edit the CompositeData.xml file if you need to. That's why there is an option to "Copy Data Files to User Data Folder" in Tools, Options, Advanced. The original file is saved in Program Files when FontCreator is installed: <!-- Updated 27th April 2017 for FontCreator 11.0 --> You c...

Re: Overlapping Text and Disappearing Glyphs

The zero has a left side bearing of -1052, hence the overlapping problems. Use the Glyph Properties dialogue (F4) to set the left side-bearing to 91, and set the left side-bearing point to zero. Zero Bearings.png You have not yet designed any glyphs for quotation marks. Word will automatically repla...

Re: Transformation parameters

The scripts do not use the funits/em setting. The scale is by a percentage, but the bold transform is in funits. Almost all of the scripts will need manual adjustment to suit each font. They were designed using my Verajja font (derived from Bitstream Vera), and won't be right for other fonts. The sc...

Re: Overlapping Text and Disappearing Glyphs

This does not look like a bug in FontCreator; just some bugs in your font with incorrect side-bearings. If you can share the font project we can take a look.
