Re: How to make a contextual cursive font

Erwin, I mostly use the install in FontCreator. I also tried exporting to a font file and installing from there. It doesn't seem to matter. I always open it as administrator. If it helps, I don't think it matters which way I install it, my registry thinks it's truetype. Thanks for your help, I'm hav...

Re: How to make a contextual cursive font

Erwin,

If it helps I have the Font Export Settings as "Outline Format" = CFF (Postscript)
Opentype Layout Features = Yes.

Re: How to make a contextual cursive font

Erwin, Success, first and last letters work in Word 2013 and the Fontcreator tester! I don't mean to fix something if it's not broke, but I noticed in my registry that it thinks that my font, "Melanie Camille" is a truetype font. Would this have any bearing on why init and term features did not work...

Re: How to make a contextual cursive font

Erwin, Thanks so much for persevering through my project, I know it's not a common request. I will check out the new code ASAP and let you know of it's results. It may be that Word 2013 doesn't support init and term even though documentation says it does and doing contextual alternates is the answer...

[FIXED] Kerning adjustments look different in Preview than the Open Designer

The subject says it all. I'm seeing two different spacings in the preview toolbar than the open designer, so I have to guess the distance in open designer and then check preview... Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a simple solution I'm overlooking because I didn't see anyone else with this...

Re: How to make a contextual cursive font

Thanks for another prompt response. I am aware of the advanced kern and contextual boxes and have them checked. I was ‘getting nowhere until I realized that the 'coded' glyphs must be called 'a' or 'b' I had been naming them ‘a.normal,’ ‘b.normal,’ etc., and that fouled things up. So I"m basically c...

I've input the script and it works in the "preview" window but not in the Tester in Fontcreator, Word 2010,2013,2016. I'm at my wits and could use assistance. Attached is the font and a screen shot of my glyphs and a couple of words. Please help, this program is not of much value to me if i can't us...

Re: How to make a contextual cursive font

Erwin, Let me start by saying I was mucho impressed by your response time! There were a couple of changes I made to the script you gave me, minor ones, like I changed the regular @lowercase names from just "a" to "a.normal" because I plan to have four alphabets and it's easier to lookup. And I chang...

How to make a contextual cursive font

I've just purchased FontCreator 9, and it supposedly has "context" based options...can I use this to make a true cursive font? I've never used this program so I need simple instructions...but basically I need to be able to substitute letters that follow the "high tail" letters like b,o,v,w,r etc. I ...
