Re: How to make a contextual cursive font

Erwin, Again I'm freaking out and need your help again. The font doesn't work in Word 2010 or Word 2013. I type in one word with the font and it changes the next word to times new roman or courier. Attached is how I intended the font to look. But I can't seem to get word to use this font with any co...

Re: How to make a contextual cursive font

Erwin,

After searching through the code I found the problem entry, it's attached. It was an argument pointing nowhere. I'm so relieved!

I'm sure you would have spotted it in an instant.

Thanks,

Jonne

Re: How to make a contextual cursive font

Help Erwin!

I tried to install font and I get "argument out of range". I've tried Truetype and CFF with same results. I'm including the font file. Please help, I'm a bit freaked out!

Re: How to make a contextual cursive font

Erwin, I've learned so much from you, especially about code. I wanted to extend my gratitude for your quick responses to my unique problems. I've made some changes to the code to accommodate some glyph abnormalities and some issues with apostrophes, you can check it out in the attachment. I felt lik...

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...
