Re: Clarendon

You might try to look for the typeface Modern Roman or Modern No. 20. It might be a matter of the name Clarendon being a trademark or something like that. Though I seem to remember that Clarendon was like Modern Roman Bold, as Modern Roman was used as a typeface for books. They both have the upper h...

Re: "Stiff Brush JK" display font

> No, I don't speak Esparanto, but I like the idea of a common world language. Actually Esperanto is intended as a second, auxiliary, language for everyone, not to replace existing languages.

Re: Localizable Sentences Experiment font support

Here is a font with two symbols in it. They are my own designs. They are for Hi! and Bye!. They are intended for informal communication through the language barrier. I have been using the symbols in the following thread to produce a design for a tote bag. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/...

Re: FontCreator 8 used in futuristic experiment

There has been a development in that the following document has been published yesterday. https://www.unicode.org/L2/L2019/19203-wd-uts51-17-draft.pdf I refer to Annex C.2 of that document. In that section the use of U+1F194 SQUARED ID is suggested as the base character for QID emoji. I have thought...

However, no problem, I am attaching the font here. [Note of 2019-04-06 Saturday A new version of the font has ...

Re: Number of possible characters in a substitution statement

I'll take a look at the limit if you try to exceed 32000 glyphs :lol: It is not a matter of how many glyphs are in the font, it is a matter of how many characters can be listed in the left-side of a sub statement. For example, if it is fifteen then all is well for this usage, if it is ten then ther...

Re: Should I delete all my empty glyphs?

However, if you do delete all the unused Private Use Area (PUA) cells that each contain nothing, then if some user of your font uses one of those PUA code points then the Windows operating system might insert a Japanese character. So as you wrote: > In each of my fonts I have tons and tons of empty ...

> Why not just use the italics button on your word processor it's much simpler.

Because this is about plain text not rich text as is used in a word processor program to store information about when to use italics.
