Re: Shadow

Yes, that is true. It might be a fun experiment to add such thing as a new transform feature e.g.: Generate color with shadow from default outline With SVG color support in your fonts, you could also use a shadow filter (e.g. feGaussianBlur), but that is not supported by all rasterizers that impleme...

Re: Shadow

The color palette supports colors with transparency, so it might be possible to mimic it.

Re: lefthand

This is not how it is supposed to work, so you have to use some kind of hack. What Bhikkhu Pesala could help, but there is one alternative. Start your text with the right-to-left override (RLO) character (code point $202E) which tells the word processing engine to process the remaining characters fr...

Re: why read-only?

We haven't installed that version in years, but I'm glad to know you've solved the puzzle. I suspect it is related to composite glyphs. If you intend to do some more work with editing fonts, you might want to consider using the latest version of FontCreator as it comes with many improvements and new...

Re: Tag Menu

We might have located a timing issue that could cause this behaviour. We will release an update with a fix soon.

Re: Tag Menu

When I choose all fonts and then go to my tag menu to narrow it down, all is well until I uncheck my choice to go back to the view all fonts and tags. Usually, when I unchecked any tags all my fonts would appear again (if highlighted in the View panel) and my tag menu would repopulate with all tags...

Re: type1 postscript fonts

I'm not sure if this is exactly the cause of your issue, but we've also had a rare issue were Windows was no longer able to detect fonts, and a reboot solved that issue.

Re: Visual Studio

Will I be able to do the same if I create all of the symbols and characters I need using FontCreator? Sure, you can use it like any other font. Also, can I assign "Alt Codes" to these characters? Alt codes work the way they work, with all fonts, but in general it is not the preferred way to access ...

Re: Is there a limit for amount of fonts in a font folder?

There are no limits.

Can you be more specific with your issues, as right now it only confuses me ;-)

Re: type1 postscript fonts

Regular PostScript Type 1 fonts are still supported by Windows 10, but not the multiple master fonts.

MainType also supports regular PostScript Type 1 fonts.

Re: Add characters (ligatures etc.) to an already existing font

I can now confirm the issue. I've also tested with Scheherazade, and that one seems to fail as well. So for some reason the text shaping engine isn't working as we expect it to work. You might have to contact someone who has more experience with Arabic fonts and complex text shaping engines. You cou...

Re: Add characters (ligatures etc.) to an already existing font

As shown in the screen shot, you have mixed the glyphs, as the input glyph should be behsmallmeemabove-arab, and the output glyph must be behsmallmeemaboveabove-arab.init.
