Re: How do you import an image from Inkscape

Thank you. Thank you for reporting this issue and providing a sample SVG document. We've located the issue a...

Re: Fixing offset issues

I seem to have this memory of having read somewhere that it's not a good idea to have any composite glyphs at all, that it can cause issues in some software. Or something. I'm really not sure what it was that I read, or why that was the case, I just recall reading that one should avoid composites. ...

That's weird. I just got an email -- AND a notification on here -- that I had a reply to this thread from Bhikkhu, but I don't see anything from him, only my own last reply. :shock:
He might have posted a reply and then decided to delete it.

Re: Fixing offset issues

glyphproperties.png Although it is not required, most fonts have Offset set to 0 for all glyphs. Thus for all glyphs the left side bearing is at x=0. In general all glyph outlines are positioned between left and right side-bearing, so they have some space before and after the visual character. Howe...

Re: Nutso font doesn’t work correctly

in InDesign i have seen in the demo file that fraction looks correct, however, when I write the fraction normal like 1 1/33 I see a hangover like the pictures above the first post. @Bhikkhu yes when this would be work right. I see the dam... stacked fraction is a big problem. As noted in the Nutso ...

Re: Nutso font doesn’t work correctly

In Adobe Products the Nutso font doesn’t work correctly. Only Affinity Designer does it right. The Nutso font also requires the <mark> and <mkmk> features to be supported and active. It seems that is the issue with Adobe Illustrator. Not sure if you can enabled them to make it work. The github proj...

Re: Fixing offset issues

That is not what I meant. When you use Complete Composites on for example é it will replace the glyph with a composite glyph that consists of a base character e and the acute which will be placed above the base. If the resulting composite glyph has the diacritic mark in the wrong place, then you mig...

Re: Fixing offset issues

Usually one selects the composite characters and then perform the feature on them. Right now you are performing it on the diacritics.

After performing the complete composite feature, it will unselect all characters that are untouched.

Re: How lucrative is it to sell your fonts?

We don't sell fonts, but I know some people did really well, creating and selling fonts which they designed with FontCreator. Just like in any other business, some are successful. The only way to find out if you're one of them, is to give it a shot.

Re: Fixing offset issues

Can you post a screenshot that illustrates the problem, as it might be something obvious for other people, but it may also be a bug on our side.

Re: Indesign CC 2018/19

We've asked our plugin developer to make a new release for Adobe InDesign 2019. It will probably take a couple of weeks, so please be patient.

Re: Ongoing Problem Printing PDF Font Exemplars...

Is it the PDF generator or MainType who causes the crashes?

If it is MainType, then we might be able to look into it, but if it is related to the PDF generator it is obviously out of scope.

Providing us more detailed information will help us understand the exact cause of the problems.
