Re: Open Type Question

I think I can attach the source code separately. Oh. The extension otlfd is not allowed for attachment uploads. Sorry... :)

Re: Open Type Question

Thanks so much, William! Yes, there should be at least 104 substitutions : i + all 26 letters should each result in a combined glyph; the same for l, r, and j.

The diacritical glyphs aren't open-type--they're just normal ascii fill-ins.

Re: Open Type Question

Ok, my code is revised. Semi-colons: check. Caps: check. Compiles: check. Install font: no substitutions. The OT information should be encapsulated within the typeface file, yes? I don't need to have a distinct file anywhere? (I'm presuming not, since when I install other OT typefaces they do fine a...

Re: Open Type Question

Hrm. My script works... (or is error-free, in any case), but the letter substitutions don't work in the Test Font window. Back to the drawing board. Nor do they work in an open type program (Illustrator). :?

Re: Open Type Question

Another lesson learned: Case matters. And since my font is uni-case (same glyphs for caps and lowercase), I'm guessing that means I need to do the 110 substitutions in both lowercase and uppercase... Rough way to learn Open Type! :roll: :lol:

Re: Open Type Question

Hrm. Appears to be a compiling error (btw, you can't copy the error message, which is a bit annoying. Hence the screen shot.) Missing semi-colon(s), it says.

Re: Open Type Question

Wow, thank you--so very helpful! I'll have to look up the rlig and liga links you gave. For the moment I've been adding the glyphs into Private Space--is that ok? I figured out how to deal with the glyph properties, so that's all good. Only 84 more required ligatures to go... =). Thanks again Bhikkhu.

Open Type Question

I'm making a new font which has several very open characters (i, j, r) in particular. I'm working in Illustrator, and have made all the joined characters that I need ("ra", "ir", etc.). With Font Creator 7, are these considered ligatures (and if so, how do I define the new ligature characters), or n...

Upgrading?

I can't find any information on upgrading--haven't checked in to the site for about 6 months, and find that the new version is here. How do I upgrade from 5.6 on Win XP? Thanks in advance,

Re: Auto Spacing Between Lines

Oh, sorry about that--wasn't sure what the etiquette was.

And I feel even more stupid because between my request and your writing, I'm now able to get spacing between the lines. Maybe it was a problem with Photoshop... Sorry to waste your time! :oops:

Auto Spacing Between Lines

I'm sorry, but I am a complete math failure, and I just canNOT wrap my head around what it is that I need to do in order for my fonts to have space between each line! They're coming out piled on top of each other, and that somehow changed at some point--the first couple of fonts I made were fine in ...

I wonder how you managed to get those duplicates in the same folder. Anyway it's safe to delete all but one of them. For example, when you have arial.ttf, arial0.ttf, and arial1.ttf, I suggest you delete arial0.ttf and arial1.ttf, as those are most likely copies of arial.ttf. Okie, I'll try that, a...
