Re: Hinting Program problems

Probably one or more glyphs is too complex or has intersecting contours. Try running the Font Validator.

Re: Disappearance of small letter i diacritics when clicking composite icon

The way I complete composites is by copying and pasting each glyph into a composite cell from the main character glyph. I also do this one at a time. That step is not needed. Just use complete composites. You don't even need to use copy/paste from i to dotless ı — use complete composites, then make...

Re: Tag View Panel

I moved your thread to the correct forum.

It's true. The Help File does not seem to tell you how to enable disabled panels via the View menu.

Watch my video tutorial on arranging panels.

Re: Put Backups on a Network Drive

What if MainType would have one back up for everything? In other words, when a user backs up, not only does it back up the Font Vault, but also the Tags, the Ratings, the Layout, etc. It already does that, if I am not mistaken. I recommend compressing the backups with 7-Zip before moving them to Dr...

Re: Disappearance of small letter i diacritics when clicking composite icon

Since I did the coding, I can confirm that it is not a bug. If the composite was composed with accents + lowercase i, instead of accents + dotless ı it would be a bug. The result would look like this, which is incorrect. i grave composite.png Although it is not difficult to add a fall-back glyph of ...

Is this something that could be fixed in a future MainType update?
I can reproduce it by changing the Windows scaling, so I am sure that it can be fixed.

I cannot reproduce the issue here. It may be a windows scaling issue. The columns can be resize horizontally.

Several of the glyphs on the font look better when I created a symbol font, than when I converted it to a Unicode font. So I have tried the latter, and went back to symbol.
Changing from Symbol to Unicode will not alter the appearance of the glyphs, just their encoding.

Re: extraction of unicode code point from highlighted glyphs

Yes, but why do you need a list of code-points to copy a set of glyphs from font A to font B? Why not just add new glyphs and paste special?

Have a look at using a transform script to select glyphs by glyphnames, instead of code-points.
