Re: Update fails: signature check

OK, I solved this by going to the "retrieve lost registration codes" page: http://www.high-logic.com/support/registrations.html which sent me an email containing not just the reg code (which I had already), but also the link to the most recent 7.x version download. That link points to an exe install...

Update fails: signature check

Hi folks, FontCreator update is not working for me, and the "download from website" instruction is too vague. I currently have FontCreator 7.0.1b458 installed (Windows 7-64, up-to-date). When I attempt the Help > Check for Updates procedure, it offers 7.5.0.519, and says it's "strongly recommended"....

Better display and control of auto change and save functions

Overall it's great that Font Creator provides access to view and change many parts of font files. However, in some places Font Creator could be a little better in helping the user stay in control of editing steps. One important aspect of an editor of data of any type, is for the user to be able to s...

Re: TTF edited in FontCreator fails in cmd.exe

Erwin:

What would be especially helpful is a way for users to see, and to control, the degree to which Font Creator is going to change data of a font.

I will write this up as a "feature request".

SOLVED!

So the thing that FontCreator was doing that messes things up is to "Automatically update (Code Page) character ranges". These are settings on the Font > Properties dialog > Ranges tab. There is a Code Page Character Ranges section, and a checkbox to disable auto updating. For Consolas, FontCreator ...

Re: TTF edited in FontCreator fails in cmd.exe

As a further data point, if I load original Consola.ttf into FontForge, save it ("generate fonts"), and then install that in place of the original Consolas, this does two things right: 1. It appears as a choice in cmd.exe and powershell 2. The icon shown for consola.ttf in Windows Explorer and Fonts...

TTF edited in FontCreator fails in cmd.exe

Short version: A font that works in cmd.exe and powershell (Consolas), and is then loaded and then saved in FontCreator, is changed in some way that prevents it from working in cmd/powershell. I'm trying to figure out how to make a modified Consolas font which will be accepted by Windows console cmd...
