Re: Munson

The real final version has just been put up on Deviant Art.

There were a lot of improvements to the open type features and anchor positioning between the version posted in the previous post and the final version.

Enjoy. :D

Re: Just a thanks...

I would like to thank Erwin for version 11. There have been many small improvements which may not seem like much when examined individually but when taken as a whole make a significant improvement to the overall workflow. And of course there have been some major improvements as well, but it's the sm...

Re: Duplication of Anchors

Try copying and pasting the same character from one font to another where both fonts have anchors (more than one) which are named similarly to each other.

However having said that the bug only occurs occasionally.

Good Luck ! :wink:

Re: Duplication of Anchors

I have found a workaround. You have to delete the characters. Erasing the characters erases their contents but doesn't erase the anchors. You have to completely delete the character then create a new empty glyph and paste the copied character into that glyph (paste special works because then you can...

Duplication of Anchors

I have had a problem with the Munson font. Following a discussion on TypeDrawers about the design of the German capital Sharp S character I made some changes to the design in Munson. Having changed the normal and bold fonts I copied these characters into the italic and bold-italic fonts and made the...

Re: Localisation or Stylistic Alterates

Thank you Bhikkhu Pesala. Thank you Erwin, I have verified that the localisation works on Kelvinch but I had a wierd e-mail in very bad english from this guy who said that the Serbian localisation didn't work. Here was me naïvely thinking that this was a function of the operating system and so it wo...

Localisation or Stylistic Alterates

Whilst studying many fonts with Cyrillic support it became apparent that many fonts do Localisation for Bulgarian Cyrillic and Macedonian/Serbian Cyrillic by using Stylistic Alternates insead of or as well as Open Type Localisation. The reason which was stated was that Localisation doesn't work in m...

Re: Cyrillic Blackletter font

Thank you, I am no expert but I think the style is something like 'Gothica Textura Prescissa' comparing it to some examples that have that classification. That just happens to corerespond to the document I found which had a good selection of characters, so I used it. I will butcher modern Cyrillic t...

Cyrillic Blackletter font

For reasons which are unlikely to become apparent I have started a Gothic font. The Latin characters are OK. I downloaded a scan of some suitable old documents from the 14th century and have got most of the letters from that, the scans were messy and needed tidying up a lot but that is not a problem...

Re: How can a font collector identify supported OpenType features?

This sounds like a valid feature request for 'Main Type', perhaps you should ask Erwin.

Re: National Health Service (UK) font guidelines

Ok ... so I got the name wrong! I almost never use 'Arial' except at work where it is mandated (and even then I sometimes sustitute Calibri and nobody notices). :roll:

Re: National Health Service (UK) font guidelines

I work in the NHS (in England) and the guidelines say that we must use Frutiger, but Frutiger is not installed on any of our computers so we were told by the IT department to use Ariel instead. Frutiger is a nice font, unlike Ariel which is one of the most overused fonts on the planet! Some years ag...

Re: New Character

The same could also be achieved by using a character followed by a combining diacritic mark, if the anchors had been set up correctly.

'Tilde' and 'dot above' are standard diacritics.

I would be happy if the fractions feature just did fractions! :lol:
