The Stylistic Set for symbols was changed to Character Variants, and a second Stylistic set was added for Romanian Alternate forms: Şş and Ţţ (Localised forms are not supported by the Serif Apps that I...

Re: Verajja Update

Version 3.80 added two glyphs for Transport and Map Symbols Stupa and Pagoda. The Web versions include Small Capitals and are hinted, but they have no Petite Capitals or Alternative Fractions, and fewer symbols. Some Unicode space glyphs were added back. The archive now includes WOFF and WOFF2 vers...

Re: Zoom Window Scroll

Detach the zoom panel, and resize it by grabbing the edges or the corner.

Re: Font Tags Repository

I cannot speak for High-Logic, but I don't ever see this happening. The High-Logic Team is way too small to devote time to setting up or maintaining a repository of tags. There is no money to be made from this. I doubt if one could find even two users who use the same tags in the same way. I delete ...

Re: Zoom Window Scroll

The font size only affects the Zoom Panel, not the zoom popup. I can see no problem with Consolas in the Zoom popup.

Re: Cubic vs. Quadratic

How the vectors are imported will depend on whether you selected TrueType Outline Format in Export Settings, or CFF Outlines Converting curves will alter the shape slightly. Try importing a vector with export options set to TrueType, then change the setting to CFF, and import it again. See screen s...

Re: New Button to Switch Encoding in the Overview Caption

This setting is only found on the Options dialogue in MainType, not in FontCreator as far as I could see. The shortcut is the quickest route, but a button on the Glyph Properties dialogue might be more accessible than on the already crowded toolbars. http://www.high-logic.com/fontcreator/manual11/fo...

Re: Optimize Contours vs. Font Validation 'fix detected problems'

Optimise Contours reduces the number of nodes if there are more than required. Copy the Background Image from the current contour before using it to see before/after. The changes to the glyph shape are usually very minor. The Font Validation Wizard will remove other errors. Contours with incorrect ...

Re: Zoom Window Scroll

I think the position will depend on the character's bearings. Some characters like Q in some fonts may have negative side-bearings.

Which fonts? What zoom factor? Have you tried using the popup zoom on the Character Panel? Options, Character, Show Zoom Popup?

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

No, I don't keep previous versions of my fonts. If I am desperate to recover something, I will open a project file created in an earlier version of FontCreator. The archives on my website contain *.otf, *.woff1, and *.woff2 versions of Regular, Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic, plus a set of *.otf for ...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

You can save a lot of time and space by archiving TTF or OTF to 7z format first. I'm not quite sure what you mean (or are referring to) -- do you mean here in my post, or on my hard drive? If you archive five fonts, you only need to change one attachment instead of five. Space on your hard drive is...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

When I search for John Alde I found no meaningful results, but Wikipedia has an entry for John Allde who was Scottish, and so presumably not based in London. If you know more, perhaps you might like to expand the Wikipedia entry, which is a stub.
