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.

Hinting Program problems

I'm having trouble with the program Font Creator uses to add hints to my fonts. For some reason it doesn't like my fonts (all four of the same family) but still works on other fonts I have created. This is not the same problem as it had previously with component depth greater than 3. These fonts hav...

Re: Disappearance of small letter i diacritics when clicking composite icon

Complete composites works by combining other characters to either complete the character correctly or give you something close which you can work with to make it correct manually. If the characters it is supposed to use for the composites are not there it leaves a blank character, I don't think this...

Re: Font issue in Word 2016

It is possible to alter the side bearings in a unicode font! :D

You can set them to be as close or as far apart as you want. :lol:

Re: Positioning of Diacritic Marks when doing Optical Metrics

It is a matter of aesthetic judgement as to where to place the diacritic, complete composites usually gets it close enough for upright characters but the results for italics are less good.

Complete composites is a good starting point for the placement of diacritics.

Positioning of Diacritic Marks when doing Optical Metrics

A change which was introduced in FC 11 was that if a composite glyph has the 'use this glyphs metrics' flag set then Optical Metrics will not change the bearings of that glyph, the glyph will continue to use the bearings of the base glyph. This was a very welcome change and FC 11 is better for havin...
