A fun problem

I've been designing an integrated typeface, with a serifed, italic, small caps, and sans, which I want to be able to access as a single font in my word processor as the regular, italic, bold, and bold italic, in that order. I've been unable to get my computer to even recognize that I have four diffe...

Of course! Remember how you increased the amount of space the letter "I" took up? Well, if you do the same thing to the space character, (the fourth glyph) then you will increase how large an area the word processor will allocate for a space. Right now, your space character seems to take up 569 funi...

Yeah, those little dashed vertical lines that sit, mostly, on the sides of your characters determine the amount of horizontal space your character will allocate for itself. If that area is too small, your characters will be crowded. Moving those lines (you can just hold the line with your mouse poin...

It is quite small - I had to increase the size to about 48 point before I got a good look at it - and I would increase the size about double (put it in contour mode, drag a box around the whole character, then select scale on the Transform t...

I don't import images, but just did a little test and it worked fine for me, so let's explore this a bit. What size was the bitmap you did make? When you reopen the file, do you still have a glyph at capital A? If not, the picture didn't get imported correctly, or the font didn't save right. Also, c...

positioning point by formula

I would like to see a feature where you could define the position of a point by means of a formula. The way I would design it would be to have each contour be lettered, with each point referenced by the contour and its "point number", so the third point on the second contour would be "b3". You could...
