Re: Unicode 14

Unicode 14 is relatively new. I suspect that FontCreator needs an update. The latest FontCreator version was released on August 20th, which predates the release of Unicode 14 on September 14th. I tried updating Blocks.txt and UnicodeData.txt in C:\Program Files\High-Logic FontCreator 14\Unicode\ but...

Re: Getting started

You install MainType to the C:\Program Files\ folder. MainType adds all of your fonts to a database. It won't delete any fonts permanently unless you confirm it. The database (font vault) is created when you first launch MainType. Once that is done, you can manage your fonts by adding them to variou...

Re: Cannot copy and paste to Cricut Design Space

The Cricut software probably does not support OpenType features. In software that does support OpenType features, when you enable the feature, alternative glyphs are substituted for the original glyphs. The original text does not change, but when the software detects that the Stylistic Alternate fea...

Re: Annoying advertising: Please make it go away.

I do not recall seeing it (I have FontCreator installed). I do not open MainType every day, or use it extensively. All of my fonts are now well organised, and I have not created any new fonts for some time. I only update my existing fonts when I find a bug, or if I want to improve the kerning. I re...

Re: Annoying advertising: Please make it go away.

The linked thread fixed a bug in MainType 8 that showed the advertisement when FontCreator is already installed. I do not recall seeing it (I have FontCreator installed), so it is probably not a bug in MainType. I therefore moved your thread to the Feature Requests forum. Does it appear again if you...

Re: Digits inside Mark (Arabic endofayah)

How about adding English subtitles? That might be much less work than making a new video.

Legacy 'kern' Table The kern table is mostly useful for fonts to stay backwards compatible with older word-processing software, but we recommend that you no longer include it. Instead use OpenType Layout Features to include kerning (also known as pair adjustment). No - No legacy kern table is added...

Some older applications do not support OpenType kerning. If you include legacy kerning tables, that should fix kerning for them.

Just how old are the versions of Word and Photoshop that you are using?

Do they support kerning in other fonts?

Re: Stocking Font

A higher resolution image might be better. If you rotate and crop it first, it will be easier to identify the font.
