Import your H caps glyph first, adjusting the pixels per em value until you are satisfied that you have left sufficient space about the Cap Height, and below WinAscent for the accents and ascenders. Then import the x and all other glyphs at the sam...

Re: Struggling with these fonts

To me, it looks like the same font, but the one on the left has been made to look bold with an outline (it does not look like a true bold version)

Re: Importing Glyphs problem

Change the value in the Options, Import dialogue as shown in Erwin's screen shot above.

If I change the value from 500 to 1,000 for my AI graphic, the resulting imported outlines are half the size.

Re: Open Type Features in Libre Office

Thanks! That's really anything else but user friendly, but well .... guess I have to put up with this for the lack of free alternatives. Either that, or pay £20 or $25 for PagePlus X9 , which has excellent OpenType support and a user-friendly interface. There is a long learning curve though; it has...

Re: How to make everything letter 100% centered

Use the glyph properties dialogue to make the Left side-bearing (LSB) equal to the Right side-bearing (RSB). In this example, I would make them both 30, instead of 35 and 25.

Re: Getting Fonts Accepted by MyFonts.com

It should be MyFonts.com. When I searched for MyFonts.com I found this previous discussion.

Re: Looking for Professional Font Creator user

I see that you got no offers on TypeDrawers either. Did anyone contact you yet?

I don't do commercial work.

Re: WOFF 2.0 support

Export all exports all formats of all open fonts, e.g. Regular, Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic.

Export as TTF or OTF has to be done four times (or more for large font families).

Re: Comparison, Preview, Kerning have different spacing

Puzzling. If I change the Export settings, Outline from CFF Postscript to TrueType then the lowercase display correctly in the Font Test window.

Re: Crash when trying to Export TTF/OFT

The export parameters are included in the font project file.

You deleted the .notdef glyph, which is required, but it still crashes on export if that is replaced from the original.

Re: Comparison, Preview, Kerning have different spacing

Difficult to tell what the problem is without the font project file *.fcp

Did you import the TTF and export it as OTF after making edits?

Re: Comparison, Preview, Kerning have different spacing

Try using FontCreator's Font Test Window. While that is open you can select the Test font in Word or any other application to test your font in that application.
