Re: How to convert 3/4 to proper fractions?

Chris wants arbitrary stacked (nut) fractions.

There is a sample font for this named nutso & nutso2. It's a bit more involved than arbitrary regular fractions.

Re: Color font best practices

Sorry I wasn't clear. I have little issues with non-colored fonts. The largest family of 6 styles I recently finished have 5289 glyphs each and even with all of them open, there is little hesitation in opening/closing, choosing to view only a given tag, etc. The hesitation is there and is greater th...

Color font best practices

I have a color font being made and have an issue I cannot resolve via the help system. There are 240 main glyphs thus far. Two more sets of the colored parts for a total of 720 glyphs. My question is, how does one effectively produce another color variation so I can use stylistic sets for the user t...

Re: How do I Create Alternate Fonts?

I think that the OP wants the calt feature to cycle through alternates automatically like in this Glyphs tutorial:

Re: Automatic re/creation of code-points

Thanks - I've been adding them in the wrong way, then. Oops. Your help is very much appreciated. The Insert Glyphs method works for given circumstance, too. Just not for what you want. Personally I found it confusing at first. And I still choose the "wrong" choice sometimes. It's the "glyph is a ch...

Re: Automatic re/creation of code-points

When I want unmapped glyphs, I use the Insert | Glyphs menu selection. When I am adding characters from a specific code block, I use the Insert | Characters menu selection and choose which ones I need. And if the is a section of contiguous glyphs, double-clicking on the first one, holding shift on t...

Re: WOFF 2.0 support

When working on a full set of fonts I use the Export All option, then delete the WOFF versions if I don't need them. For those fonts that don't need a WOFF version it would be better to disable WOFF export in the Export Settings. I also think None should be the default for new projects as probably ...

Re: IBM Flex Fonts Fail to Load

The problem is with my browser. The latest Vivaldi Snapshot is not getting the whole file for some reason. Downloading with Opera 12.18 works fine. In the past couple weeks, I have gotten incomplete downloads on large ZIP files on three separate occasions using Vivaldi's current public release. Sub...

Re: Restore from minimized to screen

I keep MainType running for months. Never need to close it. If you want MainType available then don’t close it. Do you minimize other software to the tray? Yes, Erwin, I do minimize other software to the tray...like the other FM I use. It's not the purposeful closure I care about, it's the accident...

Re: Restore from minimized to screen

Yep, it's the accidental shut down I care about. Vivaldi is currently using 185 megs of RAM and it is open most of the day unless I am doing something intensive in another application. RAM isn't an issue. I am in and out of several (to many more) documents in at least 3 applications through the day,...

Re: Restore from minimized to screen

Another font manager I have used for X number of years minimizes to the tray whether the minimize or close icon are clicked. And in a hurry, that [x] is a lot easier to hit. I can understand Erwin not desiring to do this. But it is handy and if there was a preference next to the preference to minimi...

Restore from minimized to screen

Currently when I use MT, I leave it running minimized, which goes into the system tray. When accessed from the system tray, MT is restored to the taskbar in a minimized state, which then requires to again select MT to have it up on the screen. I would like to see MT, after restoring from the system ...
