Re: How to convert 3/4 to proper fractions?

I was hoping for a solution so that any possible fraction in the form of x/x could be converted to the proper fraction. Our daughter of 9 is at this moment 4th grade of the primary school, so fractions are not too big. I will ask her about the biggest fraction she needs. The fractions are used for ...

Re: How to convert 3/4 to proper fractions?

I'm glad we were able to get you started in the right direction. I intend to draw the fractions I need with Affinity Designer. I already found in the user manual that I have to draw within a bounding box of 300 x 300 pixels for good results. Our small one also use different numeric characters, so I ...

Re: Font Groups data location

It is better to make backups on a regular basis, and restore your latest backup through FmsConfig. You can access it through MainType's main menu -> Tools -> Create and Restore Backups. This is further explained in the manual. If you don't have such backup, then you might be able to manually restore...

Re: Color font best practices

We've not experienced the slow behavior you describe.

Do send us the project file along with some instruction so we can try to reproduce the issue.

Re: Create Square box Around A Letter

That happens automatically unless the contours have the wrong direction. It is all explained in the user manual.

Re: How do I Create Alternate Fonts?

Backtrack is the sequence of glyphs before the actual contextual input, and lookahead is what comes after it. Say you only want to replace "f" "i" with a "fi" ligature if it precedes with and "i" and "c" "e" after it, then it would trigger the substitution tables if you type: magnificent but it woul...

Re: Web font test page: Basic Arabic Features not working

The way our font test page works is to test specific OpenType layout features. It has limitations, as web browsers won't use their default layout engine algorithm. You can better test Arabic in FontCreator, Word, or a hand made web test page. We might be able to add a switch into the font web page w...

Re: How do I Create Alternate Fonts?

It doesn’t help if you keep adding more requirements...

Even though it would be a nice challenge for a Sunday afternoon, I have other plans, so try to figure it out on your own.

Re: How do I Create Alternate Fonts?

I've used Garava to make a test case which contains OpenType layout feature code for 4 additional pseudo random character variants for all lower case Latin characters (a..z).

Due to the nature of processing text, each line resets the "randomness".

Re: How do I Create Alternate Fonts?

Even with this new information it is not clear to me what you try to accomplish.

Maybe the rand feature would do the trick?
