Re: Keyboard access to as many as possible characters

Re: Keyboard access to as many as possible characters

Just to illustrate mapping a calculator font to a US keyboard shown in kbd01. kbd01.png I created six keys (Sin, Cos, Tan, Sin-1, Cos-1, Tan-1) and mapped them such that the right Alt key gives you the three shown in kbd02 kbd02.png Using shift with the right Alt key gives you the inverse functions ...

Re: Keyboard access to as many as possible characters

As Erwin has suggested, Microsoft keyboard layout creator offers the ability to create a keyboard such as "English (United States) United States-International Keyboard" where a large collection of accented Latin characters have been mapped to standard keyboards and seems to have a large number of op...

Re: Keyboard access to as many as possible characters

Unless you are into it for the fun of it, why re-invent the wheel?
There are some free calculator key fonts on the web.
One example: https://education.ti.com/en/software/de ... 557992/83p
There are also fonts which emulate various calculator displays as well.

Re: Petite Capitals script

After looking at several examples of Small and Capital Sharp S in other fonts, I suppose that FontCreator's rendition could be either small or capital … whichever you think it is, the other one needs to be created in CompositeData.xml.

Re: Petite Capitals script

I am a little confused about the Latin Small Letter Sharp s (U+00DF) and the Latin Capital Letter Sharp S (U+1E9E). The Latin small letter sharp s generated by complete composites resembles the uppercase small sharp S and it has the height of a capital letter. 223-02revised.png Mapped at 223, the fi...

Re: Petite Capitals script

I misspoke, the SS and the Ŋ do have small caps code points so they can stay, I guess :oops:

Re: Petite Capitals script

I am going over the PCPU script in detail to see that it conforms to the small/petite capital code points in the CompositeData.xml. Apparently, code points were established for various non-letter characters,!$%&()?[]¡£¥¿, I suppose to be re-sized to match the small caps. In the original PCPU script,...

Re: Petite Capitals script

Well, I tried it out ... I changed that UnicodeData.txt entry to:
E9DD; PETITE CAPS LATIN CAPITAL LETTER E WITH TILDE;Ll;0;L;;;;;N;;;;;
and when I ran the PCPU script, all of the accents were down to just above the x-height as they should be.
Yahooo! :lol:

Re: Petite Capitals script

In examining the various locations where Ẽ and ẽ are "defined", I found that in the UnicodeData.txt file, the entry for Ẽ as a petite capital seems to identify Ẽ as uppercase whereas the adjacent petite capital entries mark them as lowercase: E9A5; PETITE CAPS W DIAERESIS;Ll;0;L;;;;;N;;;;; E9BD; TIT...

Re: Petite Capitals script

Bhikkhu said: Why do you need support for Ẽ and ẽ. These are included in Latin Extended Additional, to complete the character set and support Vietnamese, etc. That seems to be a strange question coming from a typography maven!!! Ẽ, ẽ is a letter in which the tilde indicates a nasal vowel. It is the ...

Re: Petite Capitals script

Ok, one little step closer . . . The problematic Ẽ must be added to UnicodeData.txt in TWO places. As it stands now, UnicodeData.txt is incomplete ... at least in the area of the Petite Caps. Blocks.txt also needs extensive revision in order to properly display the PUA ranges. The only sources I hav...

Re: Petite Capitals script

CompositeData.xml resolve multiple copies Version 08 was Updated 25th August 2018 Version 07 was Updated 30th July 2018 The Current version has the E tilde (Ẽ) definition which I just added and version 08 lacks it. Version 07 is missing a line @ 45323 which 08 has. ∴ the 08 version is the most recen...

Re: Petite Capitals script

After an exhaustive examination, I concluded: retain ArabicShaping.txt and Scripts.txt from UnicodeData AUG 2017.zip (file dates 08/01/17). Overwrite Blocks.txt (the one I had just so proudly added to) and UnicodeData.txt with UnicodeData AUG 18 2018.zip (file dates 06/21/17) These last two files ha...

Re: Petite Capitals script

Damn, after posting that question about the individual listings in the PUA, I open FC to find that it is now listing the glyph names in the PUA which had gone missing. I have too many copies of these various files and somehow got them crossed up. I will have to sort them out, sorry.
