Re: r.init not showing at the beginning of a line

I have programmed "r.init" to be a contextual alternate to come after a space. But at the beginning of a line, the "r.init" is not replacing the regular "r". Please see the sample font and the other attachment for reference. How do I fix this? This forum topic might help: How to make a contextual c...

Re: Major Re-config + Cloud use

Will it or will it not be possible to install a copy of Main Type on the Cloud drive so that I have the benefit of using it on a stable database? If I can, how would I go about it? You can't share the font database, and it most likely won't work if stored in the cloud. You can however use a folder ...

Re: Major Re-config + Cloud use

1. I assume I use "config" to find out the database name and simply delete it, and Main Type will then start from scratch, yes? (Many changes were made to the folder structure.) No, you will need to fully uninstall MainType along with the font database, and then reinstall it. 2. With my collection ...

Re: View creation option resource "Available"/"Not Available" broken

This bug will be fixed with the next upcoming update.

You will then need to recreate the custom views that use the Resource field as match criteria.

Re: How to set usWinAscent and usWinDescent values?

FontCreator is smart enough to fix such incorrect values, that would corrupt a font. This is what we recommend:

Re: lefthand

Unicode has defined over 138,000 characters, so don't expect easy access for all of them with a keyboard.

You can copy and paste my sample text, which includes the specific character:

‏‮text shown from right to left!

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...
