Re: Capital Spacing (cpsp)

Hm, it would still be good though to make it work in Word because most people that will use this font work with Word for the most part.

I am sure that Capital Spacing (cpsp) will work too if you use GPOS lookup.
I'm sorry, I'm not sure what that means.

Capital Spacing (cpsp)

I just discovered this feature and I'd love to use it because writing with caps only my font looks a bit too tight for my taste. But it seems that Word doesn't support this - at least not by default. Not sure yet about other applications. Is there a way to activate that feature in Word (like Kerning...

Re: Space Diacritics?

Ah, now I understand! It definitely makes sense for a font that's supposed to be used in all kinds of languages. I just tried that g with the tilde with Arial and it's really misplaced.

Thanks for your patiences, I've learned something new now!

Re: Space Diacritics?

I'm sorry, I guess I still don't get the sense of it.
Does this mean using anchors is an alternative for manually creating all the characters with diacritic marks?

Re: Fonts not working in Windows 10

I've been googling a lot about this and I have also found out by now that the Creator's update is the reason for this. People on various forums said that their fonts work every other time they boot their computer, so every day they have to boot twice in order to make them work. For me that wasn't tr...

Re: Space Diacritics?

@PJMiller - This is not exactly what I was as asking about, but it's very interesting. I didn't bother finding out about anchors yet because I didn't think I'd need that feature. I used "Complete Composite" to create my characters with diacritic marks and it worked really well. So what I don't quite...

Space Diacritics?

I've come quite far spacing my font now, but I don't quite know what to do with the diacritic marks. They are used in the composites and placed correctly above the letters, but I don't guess they'll ever be used on their own. So do I even have to space characters like grave, acute, dieresis .... at ...

Re: Typo Line Gap

No, the calculated Line Gap value is at zero anyway, so that's alright.
I just worried that the Typo Line Gap at 205 might make the space greater than I want in whatever program might use this value.
But I guess if hardly and program does use it, I'll just ignore it.

Re: Typo Line Gap

Oh well, for some part it's enlightening, but some parts confuse me even more. What I still don't understand is, what will actually happen if I ignore the calculated Typo Line Gap value of 205 and set it to 0? I really don't want the space between lines to be any bigger than what I see in the test f...

Re: Typo Line Gap

As the name implies LibreOffice is completely free. It is a new branch of OpenOffice, which is no longer being developed. I know, I just never had the ambition to look into something else but OpenOffice because it's still working perfectly fine and there was never any reason for me to ditch it. Oka...

Re: Typo Line Gap

Thanks for the screenshots! I don't have LibreOffice, so I guess I don't have any program to test it with. Too bad that the font test feature doesn't support this. It would be very useful if there was a way to test it within FontCreator. Anyway, am I correct that what the font test window shows is t...

Typo Line Gap

I know there are already threads about this topic out there, but I just still don't really get it.
No matter what value I set this metric to, when I test the font, nothing changes. Not in Word, not in Open Office and not in Corel Draw.
What is actually the point of it?

Fonts not working in Windows 10

Hi, I discovered a strange problem with my fonts the other day and I'd like to know if anybody here encountered sth like this too. On my PC I have Windows 10 – the upgraded version (what a mistake to do this ...). A few days ago it wanted an update, and afterwards several of my fonts didn't work any...

If the position over the lowercase is way too high, then your diacritics all need to be moved down
Actually that's kind of obvious! Or should be! :oops:
Thank you for this hint, I'll definitely need to fix this!
