Re: kerning issue

FontCreator tries to preserve the original line spacing, and fills the void with a line gap.

A next upcoming release will set it to a more logical value if it detects the line gap exceeds 1/2 upem, but for now manually set both typo line gap and line gap values to 0.

It should not have removed the lines, but the input is not correct, as only this syntax is supported: By a single ...

Re: Drag drop enhancement and OTD tree status

2- When repositioning a lookup using the up/down arrows, it scrolls out of view if you're moving it beyond the window. It would be helpful to scroll the tree at some point and have the lookup remain in view at all times. keep lookups in view when respositioned with up-down arrows.gif I appreciate y...

Re: Drag drop enhancement and OTD tree status

Hello, The drag and drop feature is a wonderful addition and I find myself using it very often, so thank you very much! I do feel, however, that there's room for improvement. It would seem the destination indicator could be more functional if it were to highlight its target in between lookups and n...

Re: Variable Fonts

At the moment there is not much progress related to variable fonts, but it is number one on our to-do list, after we have released MainType 10 next month.

Re: Copying character to clipboard error

Just guessing what goes wrong,

Are you selecting from the Regular style and then copy and paste it into the Bold style?

Re: Problem with anchor position on lowercase italic a

I am afraid if we try to fix this one, you will soon find another case that needs to be fixed. FontCreator will try to find a good position for the anchors, but it will fail with more complex outlines.
