Re: Need help identifying fonts (obviously)

I didn't think you were trivializing the effort! It was my poor attempt at levity. BTW, about the font for the second identification. It is a horribly made font. One can see through areas in my magenta version where it overlays the bitmap. The font as used for the bitmap was/is the unfixed version. ...

Re: Getting a script font to connect

Thank You! Since I am new to Fontcreator I would have never thought of moving the side bearings. I thought they have to stay where they were. The character itself is moved to the left of the left side-bearing. The right side-bearing is dragged into a typically common negative value. As mentioned in...

Re: Getting a script font to connect

Connecting script fonts take the most work, much of which is the connecting parts and side-bearings. Take a look in the image below. This font does not rely on kerning. Most good connecting script fonts do not. capture-002675.png Note how the side-bearings are inset from both the right and left of t...

Re: Colour fonts - SVG and CPAL and COLR

Yes. Being involved with print versus web, I was referring to print applications (layout and design applications specifically) in my comments.

However, this (palette colors) may be tweakable in QXP's HTML5 output via post-processing of the CSS sheet(s).

Re: Colour fonts - SVG and CPAL and COLR

Thanks, William.

Needed/included in COLR fonts, optional in SVG fonts.

As far as I know, no one has included the ability to alter the colors at the UI level at this time. Could be wrong...

Re: Colour fonts - SVG and CPAL and COLR

...I suppose that there would need to be default decoration colours as part of the standard so that a glyph that used decoratuon colours would look clourful even if no end user choices were made. I haven't ever seen a color font that was devoid of color(s). There would be zero point. I do not think...

Re: Colour fonts - SVG and CPAL and COLR

I think that when/if Serif adds color support, it should at least be both COLR & SVG. Not one or the other. SBIX could also be added for our Apple brethren who want to insert color glyphs native to the Apple eco-system (but as they are bitmap fonts, they sort of suck as a format). I don't know other...

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

Wonderful Psymon! You've had your baby... RE mapping. Just because some/many/most decorative initials didn't bother to multi-map doesn't mean it isn't good practice. In some cases, font menus can be affected, the icon itself can be, etc. It's easy to do. Myself I would just delete the lowercase e an...

Re: Alternate ligature glyphs

Funnily enough, InDesign added the feature to access on-screen aalt later that same year. Just because John doesn't use it doesn't mean it isn't viable as is indicative of other responses. It is true that there is limited support for aalt across the spectrum of OT-aware applications. But this is tru...

Re: Family Issues

If you say so.

Adobe applications do cache font information.

If you would like, I would review the fonts. If it isn't the cache you've done something wrong.

Re: Family Issues

It may be the Adobe font caches causing the issue in PS. Do a search for what files to globally find and delete. Without an Adobe application running, of course.

Then try running PS again.
