- When you copy and paste a complete glyph (or a number of glyphs) hinting is preserved. This is only true when source and destination font are the same font, otherwise hinting information within the glyf table will not be copied. - As an alternative to glyph sorting it would be a nice feature if F...

As I understand it, if I copy a character from one font to another, or from one position to another in the same font, the character's hinting information will be lost. Is this correct? This is necessary since a glyph could also use global hinting data from the cvt, fpgm and prep tables. The Font Cr...

I'll add it to the todo list. I do like the idea! It won't take too much time to implement, although it also affects the Overview page in the Options window. However I gave it a low priority as you already have a workaround. Maybe other users like your request as well and make me change the priority...

I'm adding diagonal validation support for redundant points. It will be optional as it could result in removing too many points. There will also be a maximum error distance available from the Options window; this value is needed to calculate the redundant points. This feature isn't completed yet, bu...

Question. I'm adding a letter I've scanned in. It's the letter "g". The lower part is very low. Is there some dialog box where I can adjust the depth a letter can go when it's created? Calligraphic fonts tend to have long tails, swirls and such. I was hoping there would be some way to allow the fon...

You can't make a perfect circle with the Bezier curves used in TrueType outlines. As it is recommended to always have on-curve extreme points, you need (at least) 12 points to approximate a circle.

To add one character (your signature) follow the instructions from the "Adding a New Character - the EURO Sign" part of the help file. The "Quick Start Tutorial" part might also be useful.

The Font Creator Program tries to locate the Microsoft Symbol platform. It is needed for both the mappings and the naming fields.

What is the exact error message you receive when you press F5?

Because the validation can be very time-consuming, real-time glyph problem detection will be disabled for too complex glyphs. The complexity is determined through some Validation settings in the Options window.
