[FIXED] Import negative image not working correctly

With latest 10.1 release I just tried importing a negative glyph image. I checked "Negative" and adjusted the threshold until the image was as clear as possible, but when I clicked the generate button the imported image was just a big black rectangle. If I do not check "Negative" then the negative g...

Re: Format 14 cmap subtable

As a software developer myself I can understand that it may not seem like a priority for you. Nevertheless, Format 14 cmap subtable is supported by other font editors, and Unicode variation sequences are getting more and more widely implemented, especially for CJK fonts as the Ideographic Variation ...

Re: Support for vhea and vmtx tables

Thank you, that is very welcome news. Adding support for vertical layout to my CJK fonts is a very high priority for me, so I hope you will be able to add support for these tables in the next major release.

Re: Cannot save project with 10.1

The new release seems better, and I have not yet seen the "Out of memory" error after doing half an hour of editing and saving several times. Everything seemed to be working OK yesterday, but this evening when I opened FontCreator 10.1, every time I tried to open a project FontCreator crashed. It c...

Re: Cannot save project with 10.1

I have always thought that the "Find" command would be better if it just located the searched glyph in the glyph list without filtering it at all. I also miss the old find function (which I had with v. 5.6 I think), as there are often times when I want to look at a character in the context of its s...

Re: Cannot save project with 10.1

In case you haven't noticed it, the improved validation features do work a lot better. Take a look at the glyphs: 1107, 1867, 2895, 8827, 31245. Take a look at them in both FC10.0 and FC10.1. The contour direction detection is very accurate. Yes, I found it impossible to correctly validate the cont...

Re: Cannot save project with 10.1

The new release seems better, and I have not yet seen the "Out of memory" error after doing half an hour of editing and saving several times. However, the progress bar still goes straight to full, and remains at full for about 30 seconds whilst the project is saved. Additionally, the forward and bac...

Re: Format 14 cmap subtable

I'm not really familiar with this, so I wonder if you could suggest how the user interface should look? I think that it would not be too difficult to add support for the Format 14 cmap subtable . I think it could be done in a similar way to which OpenType features are supported in FontCreator. I en...

Support for vhea and vmtx tables

Please could you add support for vhea (Vertical Header) and vmtx (Vertical Metrics) tables, which are required for vertical display of CJK fonts. I see that a couple of other users have also posted to this forum about the lack of support for vertical fonts in FontCreator, so I think this would be a ...

Re: Cannot save project with 10.1

Later I made some changes to the project, and when I tried to save the project I got the "Out of memory" error message again. FontCreator was the only application running, and I only had the one project open. My computer is a new laptop with plenty of memory, and when I looked at task manager Font C...

Re: Cannot save project with 10.1

I closed all other applications, and I was able to save the project after two attempts. Another issue is the progress bar goes straight to full when you hit Save, and stays at full until the save has completed. At present 10.1 offers no advantage over 10.0 for me, so I will stay with 10.0.

[FIXED] Cannot save project with 10.1

I have just installed FontCreator 10.1, and I am unable to save an existing project for my very large BabelStone Han font (43,542 glyphs) -- after about 30 seconds I get an "Out of memory" error. I never had a problem with 10.0 or earlier versions.

× Platform Manager

Old versions of FontCreator used to have a Platform Manager tool that allowed you to choose which platform/encoding to support in the font. Recent versions do not have this feature, but automatically use a particular set of platforms and encodings. This means that if I do not want to support Unicode...

Re: Format 14 cmap subtable

Why would I even need a Format 14 cmap subtable? What could I do with it which I can't do now? A Format 14 cmap subtable is the recommended way of implementing variation sequences, and is the only way of supporting variation sequences in a font under Windows 7 and later (see https://www.microsoft.c...
