I'm sorry, I can't understand the article you sent. I would like to ask you how to generate XML files into TTF files in FONTCTEATOR? Which button do I need to click in the FONTCTEATOR interface? Please help me. Thank you very much.
That is not possible.

Re: Font getting cutoff in FontCreator, Windows, and others

Disable the "Include vertical spacing..." check box, as that is not relevant for your font.

Click the Calculate button within the Spacing area. If that doesn't solve the issue, you might need to downsize your glyph outlines, or increase the upem.

Re: Why the sizes of the charactors are different from the cursor?

Since you mention the line height was fine at first, I suspect one or more other characters have outlines that are positioned way below the expected em box. That could trigger FontCreator to adjust the vertical line spacing. You can identify the most extreme one through the Font Information dialog. ...

Re: Installing folder with subfolders

Yes, that can be done quite easily.

Select the specific main folder. Ensure you've enabled "recursion", as that allows you to view fonts from a folder and all it's subfolders in a single view. Now click the Install icon through the groups toolbar.

Re: FmsConfig-Font Management Service

A backup should only take a couple of minutes if done local, but can take longer if you store it in the cloud.

The screenshot reveals you are running version 8.

To start the font service, either do it through FmsConfig, or just reboot your computer.

Re: Font getting cutoff in FontCreator, Windows, and others

Usually text has to fit an imaginary box in user interfaces.

You could adjust the vertical font line spacing, or make the outlines smaller, but both affect the appearance of your font.

You could increase the global “units per em”, so tou can store more details.

Re: glyph it is completely destroyed

Contours consist of nodes that have to be rounded integers, so you will get such issues if the outline becomes too small.

Re: creating anchor class

The information in the user manual is not easy to find, but the number of anchor values used with Mark‑to‑Ligature lookups can be set through the Glyph Properties. See:

Re: Difference between font installation and export

Copy to Windows fonts folder is not the recommended way to install fonts. You could right-click a font and then select Install or Install for all users.

Re: What does "Outline Issues" mean?

In this case FontCreator incorrectly identifies outline issues, as the bearings are fine. So in this case you can safely ignore the warning.
