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.

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.
