Re: Cadman

Cadman has been updated to include Cyrillic and the Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics. My fonts are no longer hosted on DeviantArt as they have been making rather disasterous changes to the website in order to monetarise things. Also they have changed the user interface of the website to be fri...

Re: Hide Screen Clutter

This is really good !

The 'hide clutter' feature works well as a toggle but using 'h' to cancel it whilst retaining it's original function as a momentary 'hide clutter' is a stroke of genius !

Well done !

:D

Re: Really long list of different requests... =)

The perspective transform is cool but I doubt it would get used very often. In a regular drawing program like Inkscape yes it would be useful but in designing fonts I doubt it will get used more than the occasional person testing it out to see what it does. It would be adding features just for the s...

Re: My First Complete Font by using FontCreator 13

There are differences between GPL and OFL which are not obvious at girst glance. There is a clause in GPL which states that all things created with the GPL software must also be covered by GPL. So no commercial use. :shock: There was some controversy about this in the open source community because i...

Re: Hide Screen Clutter

It would still be nice if Erwin could make Ctrl+H hide the clutter and make the arrow keys move in small increments whilst it is pressed.

This small change would guarantee me getting an upgrade from 12 to 13, much more than the improvements for colour fonts. :wink:

Re: Hide Screen Clutter

Thank you, that seeems to work quite well.

It is more keystrokes than I would have liked but they can all be put into a macro so that brings it down to one keystroke again. :D

Hide Screen Clutter

When adjusting curves I like to hide the rest of the clutter on the screen by pressing the 'H' key and using the arrow keys to adjust the point whilst looking at how it changes the character without all the other stuff getting in the way. Sometimes these adjustments are very subtle so I use the 'Ctr...

Only way is:
  1. Save font project
  2. Select Composites
  3. Make Simple
  4. Export
  5. Undo make simple
  6. Save again.
The only problem I can see is that if the font contains composites whose contours overlap that might cause blank patches where they overlap in the exported font.

P.S.

I could add the two symbols you want to one of my own fonts.

Re: Simple commission - add 2 symbols to a wingding font

I think more information is needed before anyone is likely to take this on. What is the copyright on the font you wish to modify ? I assume it isn't one of yours because if it was you would do the modifications yourself, so it's someone else's font you are modifying. Is it under an open source licen...

Re: Add paste feature to Glyph Transformer

Right now it is not possible, but you can add glyphs with formulas, even within the glyph transformer: agrave=a+gravecomb adotbelow=a+dotbelowcomb Would that be of use? I have a font which is called 'Spare Parts' which is a collection of useful bits and experiments. It started out being just a perf...

Re: Is it possible to directly replace a system font with a revised font?

I recently did this, using a similar method to the one in the guide pointed to by Erwin, replacing the system font with my Cadman font. It had mixed results and eventually I changed things back. Replacing the system font is all very well but it became apparent that there are many places where Window...

Re: Shadow

Inkscape uses the SVG format and that does all sorts of gradients very well. The source code is all freely available. Might be worth a look just as an example of how someone else did it.
