Kerning not working in Word preview

I have submitted one of my fonts to My Font review and am afraid it will get rejected because one of their requirements is that my font show up properly in the font selection window. Now I don't know if it's a problem of FontCreator or just Word. As per the pic below you can see that my font's names...

Re: What is the advantage of exporting the "Legacy Kern Table"

Thanks Erwin!

Not exporting to Legacy cuts my font size in half. I won't export to that anymore.

Hope your new creation is selling like hot cakes!

Blessings,

Re: What is the advantage of exporting the "Legacy Kern Table"

So would you recommend exporting the font with Legacy enabled just in case? In your professional opinion?

What is the advantage of exporting the "Legacy Kern Table"

I've been exporting all my fonts with "Legacy 'kern' Table enabled but it does make my font larger in size. I'm wondering what exactly is this feature and what does it do...is it necessary?

Thanks,

Jonne

Re: different versions of the same letter

Roger, I started the contextual cursive font as a complete newbie. It won't take you a decade to make. It took about a year to get most of the work done, and about another year to kern everything right. A lot of that was learning how to use CALT features, these forums are very good in support and I ...

Re: different versions of the same letter

Here is a sample of my font. Note that the first 'm' in Lorem followed by an apostophe has a different tail than the Lorem without an apostrophe. This is true for all tails of all letters that precede a symbol.

Re: different versions of the same letter

If you're interested in making a contextual true cursive font, I've made one. You may want to check out this thread: http://forum.high-logic.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5804 If you'd like to see my code, I can PM it to you. But to warn you, It is very individualized to the way that I work. Blessings, Jo...

Re: How to adjust zoom level of glyphs in main window

Yeah, the link to the manual showed me everything.

I can't begin to fathom how much programming goes into this software if such customizations are available if you are knowledgeable. Continually impressed with this program.

Thanks PJ,

How to adjust zoom level of glyphs in main window

I know I've already asked this question and Bhikkhu Pesala you answered it, but I have forgotten how to adjust the size of the glyphs in the main window. This was one of the defaults I lost when I uninstalled FontCreator. Sorry to ask the same question twice but I couldn't find my previous post and ...

What is the name of this forum's font?

Erwin,

If I could ask, what is the name of this font that your site is using for what I'm writing? It's for a friend who is preparing a resume and is looking for a good looking font that's easily readable without weird spacings.

Thanks,

Jonne

Re: Quoteleft not obeying Kerning rules

Erwin, Just to put a stamp on this issue, I believe you are right. It is a bug with how Word 2013 exports or prints. I say this after trying Adobe Illustrator to find that it obeys all kerning, both in exporting and printing. Thanks for your efforts though it's unlikely that I will get any help from...

Re: Quoteleft not obeying Kerning rules

Erwin, Not intending you to feel rushed, I'm sure you're very busy. It's been a couple of week and I wondered if you'd had any progress to do with my issue and/or strategies to resolve this. It wouldn't be a that big a deal if it only occurred doing pdfs, but the issue is present while printing as w...

Re: Quoteleft not obeying Kerning rules

Erwin,

Just realized quoteleft and quotedblleft also don't kern with y. I'd be willing to bet it ignores negative kerns with those glyphs?...or perhaps it ignores them all.
