Re: I am trying to make a font with some stylistic alternates

You need to include the feature to the script as follows:

Code: Select all

script latn {
  # Latin
  feature StandardLigatures1;
  feature StylisticAlternates;
}

Re: Ligatures, substitutions and scripts

You’re almost there!

Try this:

script latn {
feature Ligatures;
}
This is also described in the manual:

Re: Build 11.5.0.2430 takes much longer to export a large font to TTF than previously

We now include some additional checks to set specific overlapping flags in the glyph outlines.

Re: Recently installed MainType is not recognizing fonts

Maybe some anti-virus software forces it to run within a container (in a sandbox environment) that isn't able to fully inspect your actual Windows system.

Re: Smallcaps suggestions?

Yes, it is possible to change a substitution lookup type. Within the OpenType Designer dialog select the lookup and click the "Code editor" button in the upper right toolbar. To change a ligature into a multiple substitution just change the code. For example change: lookup Ligature1 { sub f i -> fi;...

Re: Fixing offset issues

Just add one base class and one mark class. You can then later decide to add more combinations by just adding glyphs to the classes.

Re: How to reposition character before sequence of letters?

It is a bug because we try to make FontCreator more flexible than the specs allow. In the final font classes within a ligature item are not allowed. Right now FontCreator will store it as one item. For example sub bar @ABC @abc -> ".null"; will end up in the font as: sub bar A a -> ".null"; We'll ha...

Re: How to reposition character before sequence of letters?

When I test the initial feature code with another font, it seems to work just fine in Firefox. I'll run another test with the updated code.

Re: AutoMetrics & AutoKern Greek & Extended Greek characters ONLY?

Well, that's weird. My own suggestion in my last reply here seemed to make perfect sense to me, so I just tried it -- but autometrics seems to have no effect at all on either of the Greek character sets, they're still all monospaced (with the same bearings throughout, that I'd given them before). :...

Re: Right to Left Script

The only way to make a RTL font is to include characters that are defined as RTL. According to wikipedia there are over 20 scripts supporting RTL. If you're trying to invent another script supporting RTL, you will need to convince the Unicode consortium to adopt it. Only then Windows, Word, Mac etc ...

Re: Right to Left Script

For a font to work as intended, it requires characters with correct codepoints as defined by the Unicode consortium. All text processing engines rely on their information. As Bhikkhu Pesala suggested, you can position your glyph outlines to already defined RTL characters. Alternatively you could sta...
