I think even an optional different-colored outline for "forward" and "reverse" contours would be enough for most people (including me).
I would ocasionally find this useful.

Re: What does "Outline Issues" mean?

There will be something wrong, probably something that the font validation can detect but not fix. It could be that the outline is drawn outside the allowed area or that there are knots where the outline crosses itself. Look at the glyph in the edit window and see if there are any red points on it, ...

Re: How to convert 3/4 to proper fractions?

In February 2018 I released a font called Cadman which uses a very neat piece of code for doing arbitrary fractions by Erwin Dennisen the author of Font Creator. It is a bit complex but it works very well. The original code is given here . If you don't feel like tackling anything this complex yet yo...

Re: How do I Create Alternate Fonts?

Trial and error is very useful.

Experiment !

(but always keep a copy of the original in case things get messed up (which they will)).

Re: Has Anyone Created A Mathematics font?

Libre Office Math is available for you to try for free, if you don't like it then you have lost nothing. It's part of the Libre Office suite. The Kelvinch font contains a lot of the Math symbols including a full set of the Matematical Operators Unicode block. But I think you aren't going to solve th...

Not a good idea to run it on the whole font!
Oh no! I already ran it on all four of my fonts (that I'm currently working on)!
This would only screw up the characters which intentionally have a negative offset like the combining diacritics.

Most of the characters would be unaffected if they were correctly positioned but the combining diacritics would all be set to the wrong positions if they were correctly positioned before you ran the script.

Open Type Designer up/down controls

In Open Type Designer there are boxes with numbers in them and if you click in the box you can either type in a number, click the up/down buttons or press the up/down arrow keys to change the number. The method I normally use (out of habit) is to use the arrow keys if it is just a small change and t...

Cadman

I have just uploaded a new font to DeviantArt.

It is called Cadman and is a sans serif designed for legibility.

It has the Greek alphabet and many mathematical operators, it also has lining tabular digits.

Re: Hinting Program problems

The new version worked fine without any problems and without any changes to the font.

I will have to update to the new version on my laptop as well because it seems I cant open the new project files with 11.0.0.2412

Thanks for your help :D

Re: Hinting Program problems

I am currently running 11.0.0.2412 , I was thinking about trying the newer version posted on the Beta Test forum but I don't need single line fonts for CNC or support for vertical writing.

I will try this version and let you know the results.
