The quality has a lot to do with hinting. The hints are what make it look good at low resolutions. The Font Creator Program does not fully support hinting. Screen fonts are incredibly complex to make well. If you want to hint your font then you could use Microsoft Visual TrueType to add hinting to y...

Try the test feature (Font --> Test) inside the Font Creator Program.
When the test window shows your font as expected, you might need to restart your computer.

Vasu, Make sure you are using the latest release from the announcements forum, as it has improved support for glyph postscript names. New fonts should have correct postscript names. With existing fonts you could use the "generate postscript names" feature available through the Postscript Names windo...

The new version will automatically set the Left Side Bearing at x=0. So your problem should be solved even by just opening and saving your font with the latest release.

Thanks for the font. I think the problem will automatically be solved when you use the latest release. The problem is most likely related to the "Set Left Side Bearing at x=0" issue.

Download the latest release through the announcements forum and let us know your results.

Topic: How do you get a font to go right-to-left?
Replies: 6

The Font Creator Program cannot create right-to-left fonts because it requires the GSUB (glyph substitution) table which doesn't work with the product. This is a feature that does exist in OpenType fonts. You can make a TrueType font and then use Microsoft, Apple or Adobe's free utilities to convert...

Your font requires OpenType features like glyph substitution. The Font Creator Program doesn't support the GSUB table (that contains the glyph substitution features). Also some other tables are not supported. You can make a TrueType font and then use Microsoft VOLT to add OpenType features. Check ou...

Maybe you want your font presented in grayscale. If that is what you are looking for then try this:
Select "Format -> Grayscale". Delete all entries. Now add a new entry and
set "Grayscale rendering".

I'll add it to the to-do list, however be aware you will have to create a bitmap per glyph per font size. So when you want to add bitmap support to a font with 200 glyphs for sizes from 8 to 13 (inclusive), you need to maintain 1200 bitmaps.

Although it is still on the to-do list, I'm not sure if hinting capabilities will be added to the Font Creator Program. If you want to hint your font then you could use Microsoft Visual TrueType (VTT) to add hinting to your fonts. VTT is a tool from Microsoft for graphically instructing TrueType and...
