Re: otf/ttf export works on PC but MAC errors... why?

The prosper tool seems to have some issues; I expect Monotype will solve them within the next couple of weeks. Most likely the font will install just fine, but it is best to try and install the font yourself.

You can send the font through our ticket system.

Re: All new fonts are showing red dot

A recent Windows 10 update (v1809) includes support for installing fonts per user. Previous versions only supported system wide font installations, so this is a new feature which MainType currently doesn't support. As you already noticed, most other software also is not ready for this. We expect to ...

Re: Kerning Pairs

I didn't mean to offend you. I'm sorry about that. For us to help, we just need the right information, so we can reproduce and understand reported issues. And what's more, I can't even get the preview to show up single line like that now. That's too bad, as you might have spotted a bug that we would...

Re: Kerning Pairs

FontCreator has a comparison feature which allows you to preview text with the Glyph Edit window. It allows you to refine metrics while you see how characters join. It even supports OpenType layout features, so kerning can also be enabled.

Re: Kerning Pairs

Yes... well, actually the r is off there. I found a way to get the program to display them in stick form on that preview because I can't tell enough with the thick lines like in your photo. Then, when I got it to show the thin lines, the problem happened with the ends shrinking down as I altered th...

Better share the actual font project, so we know your specific font project settings. To keep it private, do send it through our ticket system.

Getting there. I'm working with single lines now and it's amazing.
I'm glad to know you like it!

The preview pane is not showing them correctly as I get them closer together. Any advice on this?
Can you please send us a test project so we can look into this issue?

Re: Added new icon characters aren't showing

We’re not sure why it fails, but the font is most likely just fine. To be sure you’re not facing an old bug, it is strongly recommended to use the latest version of FontCreator.

Re: Added new icon characters aren't showing

It still looks like you installed an older version of your font. Do use the Install feature within FontCreator.

Re: Should I delete all my empty glyphs?

It is best to delete all unused glyphs. Otherwise external software like word processors or font managers might show the glyphs to the end user while you never intended this. And, yes, it will also save some bytes. We could add a new feature which allows you to mark a glyph to be included on export....

Re: ability to share font groups

If you have a shared network drive, you can all make use of such font folders.

If you don't have access to such drive, then you can select the fonts, and export them. Then share those fonts with your team (provided you all have a valid license for them).
