Re: Cannot add/delete/modify text sample ??

It should always work, so I don't know what goes wrong.

I assume you are running version 8, so I'll contact you to see if we can solve this issue.

Re: WOFF 2.0 support

I understand your point, but I still think it will be confusing for people who try to export woff, and can then exclude woff within that very same dialog. People who only need ttf/otf can use this per font: export-ttf-otf.png For people who want to export all opened fonts, your solution to delete wo...

Re: WOFF 2.0 support

If you want to test the upcoming woff2 support (and have a valid license), do give it a try: FontCreator 11.5.0.2424 (64 bit edition) There is currently one thing not suported with WOFF2, namely a transformed hmtx table. On opening such woff2 font file you'll get an error: Transformed hmtx table no...

Re: Black Letter B behind my Colour Letters

The first glyph must be .notdef which seems to be deleted. Chrome doesn't like it, so insert a glyph at the top and name it .notdef.

Re: WOFF 2.0 support

we will drop support for including XML Metadata to WOFF Is there a serious downside to retaining support for this? :? I wonder if it is actually used. And if it is used, do you think it is useful?

Re: WOFF 2.0 support

Why would anyone want a WOFF version of single-stroke fonts with open contours? The drop list could be used instead for selecting the WOFF version. Export Options.png None would not export any WOFF versions, only TrueType/OpenType with Export All Version 1 would export WOFF version 1 Version 2 woul...

Re: WOFF 2.0 support

Right now WOFF 2 covers 81% of all people who browse the web. WOFF 1 covers over 95% , while the remaining 5% use outdated web browsers (more than 6 years old) which also fail to display most web sites due to the lack of support for modern layout etc. So we think you should provide both WOFF 1 and W...

Re: WOFF 2.0 support

We intend to add support for WOFF File Format 2.0 soon.

How do you think we should include such support in the export dialogs?

On side note, we will drop support for including XML Metadata to WOFF. Let us know if you think it is important to keep that option.

Re: Problem with calt preview

You've enabled the more advanced Shaping Engine (_shaper), which behaves more like other software like Microsoft Word, Adobe InDesign, Serif Affinity Designer, and web browsers. This will process specific features ( calt is one of them) in a specific order, even if they are not selected, and after t...

Re: Installed font files invisible in their Windows/Fonts subfolder

I suspect your font has the Greek Unicode character range marked available.
