Re: Colour Metrics Conflicts

I cannot see what they are, but my new colour glyphs suffer from "Color Metrics Conflicts." This usually happens because of different advance widths, but all are the same = 1674 funits. Nothing wrong with the glyphs. We'll have this bug fixed with the next upcoming release. A possible bug with font...

Re: How more than 255 glyphs are to be used ?

Or use a font manager like MainType to copy an induvidual character, which you can then paste into your word processing software ;-)

Re: How to reposition character before sequence of letters?

It is a bug because we try to make FontCreator more flexible than the specs allow. In the final font classes within a ligature item are not allowed. Right now FontCreator will store it as one item. For example sub bar @ABC @abc -> ".null"; will end up in the font as: sub bar A a -> ".null"; We'll h...

Re: Home Edition -> Professional Edition Change?

First, I can not speak English and send it to Korean. I do not know how to use the Home Edition that can not produce a font. I do not have a cut function, so I can not design a font at all. If you have a Home Edition Trial version, check all features I would have bought a Professional Edition versi...

Within MainType select Invalid Font Resources from the Tools menu to view fonts that are considered invalid.

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

We've always been able to successfully install fonts on a Mac, so I'm not sure why that warning occurs. Maybe they test for legacy naming fields, but maybe it is a bug in FontCreator.

Can you send me both font files, so I can look into the differences?

Re: Zoom Window Scroll

We were not able to reproduce the issue concerning Erica's "P".

Most of the time the character is displayed just fine, somewhere in the center of the panel, so in some cases you might have to lower the point size.

Re: Ye Alde Font Familie

Bhikkhu Pesala suggests you put all your fonts in one package, so you only have to provide one file.

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

It seems they have a new tool to pre-analyze fonts when you submit them.

Can you send the font file to me (contact on the right side), so I can look into any issues on our side?

Or is it the font install feature within FontBook on a Mac?

Is that alright if I do that, just edit my original post, delete all the fonts in there, and simply provide a link to my website instead?
Sure no problem.

The "font validator" on the upload does "not pass" on the "Will Install on MAC OS X and macOS" test.
Can you explain what this is all about?

Is it a website where you can submit fonts or an online font validator?

Re: Printing-to-PDF the character set

Microsoft Word also comes with an option to Export as PDF. I don't know if that makes a difference.

Re: New Symbol font created with FontCreator 11.5 won't load in Windows

I've looked into it again, and can confirm the issue. It is due to the auto hinter which somehow produces a corrupt font. For now disable autohinting on exporting the font and it should work.
