Re: Disable showing un-available charecters

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

Re: please recognize this

If you’re unsure how to proceed, I suggest that you contact the font designer to ask for clarification of the licensing conditions. His email address is: wiegel(at)peter-wiegel(dot)de

Re: please recognize this

So do I have to write in the youtube video description "the font where it says this and this text belongs to this person"? There’s no need to be quite so specific! You just need to state that the font MAASS Slicer 3D is by Peter Wiegel, and provide a link to the licence terms so that visitors to yo...

It says “Creative Commons Attribution 3.0”, so you are free to share and adapt the work, but you must give credit to the author, provide a link to the licence, and indicate if any changes were made.

Re: font installs but cant find it or use it

If the name of the font begins with a lowercase letter, check that it isn’t at the bottom of the list. Some programs list uppercase entries first.

Re: History like in Photoshop

Undo lists the currently available undo one step back. Much different than history. As Bhikkhu Pesala's screenshot shows, Undo displays a stack of undo steps. Having worked with history panels in other programs, I do prefer them, but I think Undo/Redo stacks work reasonably well. Problem for me is ...

If the Standard version doesn't have the OpenType Feature editor, I would encourage you to upgrade.

Italic checkbox!
Shouldn't the italic angle control be disabled when the 'Italic' checkbox is unchecked? :?

Re: Discrepancy in Values

Ah. I just wonder where that comes from or how to avoid it. I create my glyphs in Corel Draw, then export them as eps files. In Corel Draw there isn't such a thing like off curve points. All points are always on the outline. In most vector drawing applications, off-curve points are represented as c...

Re: Tool to measure font colour

If you have an image editor with an 'average blur' function you can use that to gauge the relative amounts of black and white in an image, but I can see it quickly becoming tedious to do this for every glyph in a font!

Re: Red Circle/Button

The OP specifically mentions ACaslon-Pro, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if MainType isn't yet equipped to cope with the new OpenType variable fonts such as Bahnschrift. I think we need Erwin's input on this one!
