Re: New Button to Switch Encoding in the Overview Caption

You can use keyboard shortcuts to change the notation for codepoints: Ctrl+J to switch to decimal, or Ctrl+K to switch to hexadecimal.

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 converts ...

Unmapped glyphs are added to the preview toolbar with shortcut "P" by using the glyph names. This feature was added in FontCreator 9.0.
I believe William is currently using FontCreator 8.0. Time to upgrade, perhaps?

What font is this?

The sample below immediately reminded me of ITC Anna, but that isn’t it! Can anyone here identify it for me?

I think I'll make a box w/question mark for my .notdef, but apart from that I have four other empty glyphs... .null nonmarkingreturn space nbspace I remember adding in that last one based on your advice/tutorial. :) What's .null for, though?

Re: Osborne Lights Font from Walt Disney World

OPTIKipling isn't an exact match — in particular, it’s too oblique and the crossbar on the /t is (much) too heavy — but in other respects it’s pretty close, especially the capital letters, and it’s free!

But a wheel could work too I haven’t used a mouse in years, and my trackball doesn’t have a scroll wheel, s...

Re: Typekit & Google?

To integrate with Typekit officially, you have to jump through some Adobe hoops that usually aren't easy and often have bugs. You can unofficially integrate with Typekit by adding the following sync folder to MainType (%APPDATA% is the AppData folder for your user): %APPDATA%\Roaming\Adobe\CoreSync...

MainType’s Print Preview does this.
