Re: Correct display of font characters in font programs

I'm wanting to find a way for those non-existing letters to not be displayed at all. I've noticed that some of my fonts really do only display what's actually there, rather than substituting letters for blank character slots (see the attached screen dump for Ann Stone). Again, how do I modify either...

Correct display of font characters in font programs

Many of my fonts don't have a full character set. Yet when I display them in Main Type or Windows Fontview, Windows substitutes characters in its default font for the ones that are missing. The result is a false display of what's actually in the font, since the substituted characters obviously can't...

If I go to Tools/Options/Appearance, there is an option to switch from hex to decimal which works on the screen display of the code pages of a selected font; but when I try to print a code page, t...

Re: Converting Straight to Curved Lines

After more effort, I'm still hung up. How do I add a point? I select Insert/Contour, then click Apply on the menu that appears on the screen. I move the cursor where I want to add the point and right click it and a contour (or point?) appears. But when I then try to get out of insert mode, I can't d...

Converting Straight to Curved Lines

I'm playing with the FontCreator demo right now, and I'm wondering (I know it must be in the manual somewhere) how to change a straight line to a curved one. With Fontographer, which I'm used to, you just position the cursor over the line, press a mouse button, and pull the line in the direction you...

Font size in printing

I'm working with an evaluation copy of MainType to see if I want to purchase it to replace my old Font-ABC which is incompatible with 64-bit Windows. I'm trying to figure out how to change the size of the fonts in the printed font lists and the printed character maps. The on-screen versions of both ...
