× 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...

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'm afraid that I don't have any suggestions as to how you would implement it -- perhaps you could check and see how it is implemented in other font editors. I just know that this is an essential...

Re: Format 14 cmap subtable

Hi Erwin, Just checking back (after six years!) to see if you have any plans to support Format 14 cmap subtable any time soon. As you know, I use FontCreator a lot, and think it is the best, but the lack of support for Format 14 cmap subtable is something that really holds me back as several of my f...

Thanks, I'm eagerly looking forward to this.

Re: Insert characters to a particular location

An easy work around: Insert the number of glyphs that you want wherever you want them. Insert the characters at the end Copy and paste special, mappings and postscript data, overwrite same mappings Delete the empty glyphs at the end Thanks for the tip -- I had not even realized that this paste spec...

Insert characters to a particular location

It would be really useful if the inserted characters from the Insert Characters dialog could be inserted at a particular location (e.g. before the currently selected glyph). At present, the characters are always inserted at the end, so I have to sort the font to get them where I want them to be, and...

Re: Format 14 cmap subtable

We have no short term plans to add support for this subtable, but if we receive more similar requests we might change our plans. Please would you reconsider. I think that Font Creator is an excellent font editor, but the lack of support for Format 14 cmap subtable is really holding me back. This ta...

Re: Format 14 cmap subtable

Thanks for the reply. It is basically what I expected you would say. I think that the only solution will be for me to write a little utility to add in a format 14 subtable to a font.

Format 14 cmap subtable

FontCreator version 6 supports the new "Unicode Variation Sequences" encoding (Platform 0 Encoding 5) in as much as you can add the encoding to a font, and it will recognise if a font has this encoding (as two Windows 7 fonts do). However, FontCreator does not appear to support the new Format 14 cma...
