Re: how to find "Glyph Properties-code-points"'s $

You can switch between decimal and hexadecimal values for the code-points and glyph indexes in the Display Format sub menu of the View menu.

Re: Auto Metrics and Anchors

AutoMetrics will change the side bearings for the base character, which affects all composites that make use of that base glyph.

I understand the problem, but I'm not sure if it is wise to also adjust all composite glyphs.

Enabling AutoAttach to the composite should solve the problem.

Re: New Pair Adjustment

There are two ways to auto kern. One is to generate a new kern lookup, and generates new glyph classes. The other (right-click a kern lookup) auto kern option will update the kern pair values. If you use the first option more than once, you will end up with numerous glyph classes that are not in use...

Re: New Pair Adjustment

Printing through the Font Test dialog is not that sophisticated, kerning and other OpenType features are left out. While this Test Font dialog is open, you can also use your font in other software. The font has a temporary name as shown between brackets in the window caption bar, which is usually th...

Re: A question about the IJ digraph

I think so, but further investigation reveals Word uses Dutch (NLD) when the text is set in language "Nederlands (België)" and Firefox also uses Dutch (NLD) if language is set to "nl-be". So maybe we were a little too enthusiastic when we decided to add a Flemish locl feature for Dutch (FLE). On the...

Re: Font save as pdf Display is not the same

Can you please send us sample documents (word and PDF) with first half of the page with another font that works, and bottom half with your font? Also include the used fonts, so we can look into this.

Re: Font does not work in CorelDraw X5

I'm glad to know you've managed to solve the problem. I suggest you report the issue with Corel as it is clearly a bug within their software.

Re: How to use calt or rclt feature in fontcreator 11.5?

I've read your post again, and I'm not sure if curs is the way to go: Cursive Positioning (curs) cursively positions adjacent glyphs by using entry and exit anchor points. A chaining context allows you to replace a character if it is preceded or followed by specific characters. A shaping engine will...

Re: Glyph Properties Menu Item Missing

We'll add it in the next upcoming release of FontCreator 12.

In version 11, F4 should toggle between show and hide of the glyph properties toolwindow.

Re: Multiple instances ?

That is fine, but remember the last one you close will store settings, like form position but also recently opened files, as last, and those will be used next time you run the software.
