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.

Re: Smallcaps suggestions?

My small cap ligatures look no different than the single letters next to each other. I did it this way so that when people enable ligatures or disable them, the small caps remain looking as they ought. And it makes for copying text and pasting it from one app to another for less issues. Be that as i...

Re: Smallcaps suggestions?

I opted to have small cap versions of all my ligs instead. But I do decompose for other purposes. Works well.

Re: Smallcaps suggestions?

Ligatures are one of the OT features that is on by default in applications that adhere to the OT spec. You have a couple choices. Add the same ligs using your small cap characters and sub them in. Or, use a Multiple Substitution lookup and swap out the lig for the plain SC characters. This is what I...

Re: Nutso font doesn’t work correctly

What I pointed to is an Illustrator file. Just download and open it. That file available is all I would be uploading.

I have no idea what MathMagic has to do with any of this.

Yep, I've not only watched your progress, but I did respond once in it near the end.

Re: Naming (and font properties) for a font family

Sorry, I meant Title Case...

Feel free when you create new work to post images of the works, maybe in the General section. I like such things and I think it goes to promoting FC.

Re: Naming (and font properties) for a font family

You're most welcome, Psymon! Naming in all caps or sentence case--or any other way--is entirely up to you. With such a short word (Alde/ALDE), all caps wouldn't bother my designer side a bit. With longer words, especially multiple words, all caps does get a bit jarring. I personally like sentence ca...

Re: Naming (and font properties) for a font family

I scrunch them together on the Family name field, but it is not necessary. If I hit the Bold button I wouldn't expect the blackletter to be activated. But that's up to you! You can (likely should) leave all other naming fields alone below the top two. As regards the Sample text, I have no idea if th...

Re: Naming (and font properties) for a font family

One needs to use the Extended tab and also use the naming fields properly on the Naming tab. A few applications will disregard those naming fields as regards keeping the fonts as a separate listing. So for your: - Alde Romane; - Alde Italick; - Alde Paltrye Cappes; and - Alde Blacke Magick. I would ...
