Re: Verajja Update

Version 4.01 fixed some bugs with the directhit coloured glyph so that it is usable in applications that do no support colour. Currently, there are very few desktop publishing or word-processing programs that support colour fonts, but most browsers do now, so I leave my coloured glyphs in the WOFF v...

Re: Should I delete all my empty glyphs?

I use a transform script to mark all of the glyphs in my fonts that I do not wish to include in the WOFF versions. It takes longer to explain than it does to do. It relies on using consistent glyph names. You can generate glyph names from the Tools menu if you don't use your own naming convention. T...

Re: Rotating / Scaling selected points

No chance at all in MainType, so I moved your thread to the FontCreator Feature Requests forum, where you presumably meant to post it. Rotate only works on contours, not selected points. Use the knife tool to cut the contour, then rotate it. Selected points can be dragged with the mouse, or moved w...

Re: Modifying glyph names

There have been a lot of feature requests for more keyboard shortcuts over the years, and many have been added, but there are only so many that can be assigned before one runs out of easy to use shortcuts. For example, Ctrl+E might be your preferred choice for Editing glyph names, but it is already ...

Double-click works fine in both cases on our systems.
It does, if you click to focus a script first. Not otherwise.

Re: Modifying glyph names

That's the beauty of access keys over shortcuts. You do not have to remember them. If you don't pick up the program for a year, the shortcuts are underlined. C lear G enerate E dit... F ind and Replace... They are also easy to remember as they are all (in this case) the first letter of the command.

Re: All images missing from help browser

The images are there for me on Windows 10 in the help file with the latest build 2430 of FontCreator 11.5.

Are all images missing from help?

How about Online Help?

Re: Tip of the Day

Using Access Keys If there is no shortcut for a particular command, access keys are always an alternative. For example, to edit the selected glyphs, use Alt+L, N, E: https://forum.high-logic.com/download/file.php?id=7877 Another example, which I use frequently, is exporting all Fonts: Export All Fo...
