FontCreator Manual outdated link

The ‘FontCreator User Manual’ link on the High-Logic Support page points to the Help for version 13 instead of version 14. Trivially, the page title is simply ‘Help’ rather than ‘FontCreator Help’ (cf. MainType Help).

Sorry, no idea! Thanks for the bigger sample, but I’m afraid I still haven’t managed to track it down.

It looks a little like Turn Table BV, but the strokes aren’t as smooth and the /A is quite different.

Re: What is this font

That looks more like a monogram than a single letter. Do you have any additional samples?

Re: Font Information pane inconsistent

Are the ‘missing’ fonts actually present within the folder structure on your computer? Even if you’ve deleted them from there, they can still exist within the MainType vault.

I’ve been overlooking that useful feature. Bringing it into play should be a big help on my relatively small screen.

Re: How more than 255 glyphs are to be used ?

4. Memorize a few common ANSI codes: ¶ (20) § (21) ° (0176) © (0169) ® (0174), × (0215), ÷ (0247) etc. Hold down the Alt key and type the code on the Numpad (with Numlock Enabled) 5. Use Autocorrect in your application to replace ' with ‘’ and " with “” as appropriate. [/list] Alternatively, u...

Re: Printing-to-PDF the character set

When you print-to-PDF, does it basically create images out of all of your glyphs, rather than embedding your font? I'm thinking that's the case -- even the "touch up text" tool in Acrobat doesn't behave like it normally would over text. Any non-Adobe PDF printer driver that I’ve ever used...

I believe William is currently using FontCreator 8.0. Time to upgrade, perhaps?
