Re: Disappearance of small letter i diacritics when clicking composite icon

I'd be interested to know if there are any other languages that use it. Bookmark the site that I referenced. The Letter Database . It is a useful resources for such questions. Dotless i Usage.png Thanks, Bhikkhu Pesala. It wasn't obvious that each character in the language table is linked to a page...

Some languages (e.g. Turkish) also use the dotless ı as an alphabetic character on its own.
I've always regarded the presence of ı in a piece of text as a clear sign that the language in question is Turkish! I'd be interested to know if there are any other languages that use it.

I added what I thought were small capitals, only to find out later that I had added petite capitals, and I still don't know what the difference is
As I understand it, petite capitals should be optically aligned with the x-height but small capitals are noticeably taller.

We consider both SVG fonts and EOT format obsolete.
The current OpenType specification allows for OpenType fonts to contain an SVG table.

Re: Some MTPro V8.0.0.1124 64Bit questions--Glyphs and "Library"

If you have ever used Typograf (the paid version--I have no idea if the free version also has it), the properties dialog contains a TON of information about the font itself. See screenshot for an example, from ACaslonReg. They really ought to proofread their dialogs and fix silly typos like “WidhtC...

Re: InDesign plug-in shows empty window

Perhaps if you were to add some text stating that there are currently no options available, it would reassure users that nothing is wrong.

Note the space between the first and second symbol in the two images, they are closer together in the second grouping than the first grouping.
The Mercury, Venus and Mars symbols are considerably farther apart in the second grouping.

Re: Font issue in Word 2016

Now suppose however that one wants a font whereby one can type an E on the keyboard and on the screen appears a picture of, say, a daffodil. There is nothing to stop anyone making such a non-standard font. Such fonts can be useful in some situations. But that is non-standard! This is where a Symbol...

Re: Font Information Panel-Maintype8 Professional

I think SCHLBKB.TTF is the full file name in your case, Irene. I only have the regular style of that font, but my copy bears the even more cryptic file name 'tt0083m_.ttf'; I suspect that Bhikkhu Pesala renamed his copy for ease of recognition.

Re: Checksum Hash for Download Files

I've never relied on checksums for security. They can be useful for identifying a download as corrupt or incomplete, but if the file is digitally signed there will be a Digital Signatures tab in the Properties dialog, and you can check there to see if the signature is OK.

It certainly isn’t Arial. It looks more like Helvetica, but it isn’t that either.

That is an incredibly bad scan.

About 30 seconds of searching on the internet turned up this image of a different issue.

The font is reproduced at a better resolution.

I found that one, too, but I still couldn’t identify the font. :(

The font doesn't need to have the notch on the left side of the H.
That detail seems to be pretty much the only distinguishing feature in your font sample! :o
