Re: Balava OpenType - A Transitional Typeface

Version 1.80 fixed some bugs with kerning of ligatures, fi, fl, etc., and improved the spacing of Qu discretionary ligature.

Re: Lines for School Font

Why not create a Stylistic Set of the characters with lines, and use a single substitution?

Re: Ligatures can't be displayed

Have you added a ligature substitution to your font? Which version of FontCreator are you using?

Re: Kerning problems

The problem is that the Font Test window uses a standard Windows control. Microsoft are the ones who should fix it, not Erwin. I always thought to see the slightest changes, but people around me keep telling me it's ridiculous and I'm "seeing ghosts". The people around you are right. I used to kern ...

Re: Kerning problems

1) I think you're designing this wrongly. Kerning should not be required for pairs with | The spacing should look right without spaces: H|H, but I see the same discrepancy in the Font Test Window with double bar. 2) The .” works for me 3) The ellipses does not have equal left and right side-bearings...

Re: Kerning problems

For 1 and 3 the right way to fix the issue is to change the side-bearings.

For 2, you may need to use kerning. If you can attach the font project it will be easier to see what you have done.

Re: OpenType Feature & Lookup Test Font

There are hundreds of OpenType features. Which do you need to use in your Application? You can test any font from FontCreator in a suitable browser using the Webfont test.

Re: Copy/Paste Objects from Illustrator as Separate Glyphs

No. You can export glyphs as separate files and then drag and drop the separate files into FontCreator to import them all in one go.

If you drag A-Z from Explorer into glyph A in the glyph overview, the files will be imported into glyphs A-Z.

Re: New User - Can't Figure Out How Remove Fonts from My Library

The easiest method is to uninstall, delete the font vault, and reinstall it. I think this is one of the major flaws in MainType (both free & paid version). It's not the only method, just the easiest one if you want to delete a lot of fonts. It also clears the ignored font list. Otherwise, you have ...

Re: New User - Can't Figure Out How Remove Fonts from My Library

The easiest method is to uninstall, delete the font vault, and reinstall it.

Next time, add folders in stages and stop before you reach the 2,500 fonts limit.

Edit the Export Settings for the new project. The *.ttf or *.otf or *.woff filenames are stored there for each project.

Re: Capital Spacing (cpsp)

Since the average Word users is unlikely to know about OpenType Features like Stylistic Sets perhaps the thing to do is to use kerning for this. At least some may know that much. What you actually want is more generous spacing between all capital pairs. You will need 26 x 26 = 676 kerning pairs for ...
