Range check error

I'm working on a font which I cannot save after sorting the glyphs. FontCreator reports a Range check error. Any idea what causes this problem?

I think you can achieve what you want by taking the following steps:
- copy the glyph
- stretch the copy
- remove the parts in the copy you *don't* want stretched
- remove the parts in the original glyph you want stretched
- past the copy into the original glyph.

I assume there isn't an easy way to preserve the hinting in opening a PostScript based font? Would be a nice enhancement, wouldn't it?

Do you mean modern Greek only? Or the polytonic variants as well?

In editing the slashed 0 you destroyed its hinting. The changed character should print OK.

To preserve hinting you can make the dotted 0 a composite glyph.

I suspect you didn't assign a value to the new glyphs. If you like you can send me your font, so I can have a look: joopjagers at hotmail.com

Your problems are not related to font creating. I think you need a keyboard driver which doesn't print anything when you press U V W X Y Z u v w x y z. I suggest Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator which is available at the Microsoft site for free (http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/tools/msklc.mspx)....

I don't know of any Hebrew fonts that use Open Type. The Hebrew fonts that came with my Windows are not Open Type, and so far as I can tell none of the Open Type stuff in the Windows core fonts is Hebrew-related. Vusillus has Open Type support for Hebrew. It's part of Ralph Hancock's Antioch: http:...

Right-to-left writing is problematic in regular Windows versions. Have a look here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=311019 . One important quote from that page: In order to type in and edit right-to-left languages in a Microsoft Word document, you must install a localized version of M...

To accomplish what you want you need to do two completely different things. One thing is creating the composite glyphs you need, like ba in your example. Then assign a Unicode value to the new glyph, preferably one in the Private Use Area. If you leave the mapping empty Windows will not be able to l...

When a glyph is shown on screen it has to be converted to a bitmap, a rectangle of pixels, which will be switched on or off. The rasterizer decides which pixels to switch on and off based on numerical values in the glyph. In many cases rounding differences occur. This explains the different look at ...

On the other hand, hints (or their absence) should NOT influence printing, as it only works on screen.

When in a font file the font subfamily name is not included XP refuses to install the font. Simply opening and saving the font in FC doesn't solve the problem: you need to supply a name.
