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

We've just received a message from myfonts to let us know this problem has been fixed by them last week. It seemed there were at least 30 support cases with fonts not working due to this issue, which they tested after the release, and all now work.

Let us know if it works for you as well.

Re: Arabic-style script with initial, medial etc. forms

Shaping engines will automatically perform init, medi, and fina features if it detects Arabic and other scripts that use these features. Since you have invented your own "Script", it won't automatically work. You need to add custom OpenType layout features. This forum topic is a good start: How to m...

Re: "Allow for positive kerning values" missing in FC12

Hi I just moved from FC8 Standard to FC12 Pro and the AutoKern no longer has the option to remove positive kerning values when running the wizard. I ended up having to do it using character replacement after copying the OpenType code to Excel. What is the new method for preventing or removing posit...

Re: Feature Request: option to prebuild cache of previews

The next upcoming major release will come with a new font preview cache. It should improve performance, but it will only cache a couple of hundred previews at a time.

Re: "Syncrhonize the selected font folder..." syncs all folders in tree

I'm sorry, but this is by design. We understand the benefits from synchronizing sub folders, but it is too complex to make such enhancement right now.

Re: Sync groups don't display empty directories

I'm sorry, but this is by design.

At first MainType only supported virtual groups, as we are convinced that is the best way to manage fonts. However due to the fact many people requested a file based approach as well, we had to add it into the design.

Re: Positioning of Anchors on Glyphs C and c

FontCreator calculates the anchor positions based on characteristics of the specific character. Currently for "C" is tries to place the top anchor near the middle of the top visible outline. And for bottom the center of the full outline. See: AnchorsC.png Let us know if another approach works better...
