Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

I'm surprised nobody seems able to answer my query re how to get two separate fonts to "size up" nicely together. I would think that that would be a fairly straightforward thing to do -- I just don't have a clue how to go about doing it (except a long-winded, rather laborious way of going ...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

Y'know, if I could get my two handwriting fonts to "size up" nicely along with my 5 Alde fonts... http://www.psymon.com/fonts/alde.html ...that would be AMAZING. As it is now, the 5 Alde fonts work well together -- and they were designed to do so, of course -- but if you switch the text to...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

Yeah, come to think of it, I now remember that I already used that "move" function before, when I created my Alde family of fonts -- so that's the easy part! I haven't the slightest clue how to get my two fonts the same size in the first place, though. I'm assuming that it's a matter of &q...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

It seems class0 is not working as expected. We are not sure if it is a bug in FontCreator, but for now better avoid it. I was about to reply "But I didn't use that class0 anywhere," but I figured before doing so I better check my font -- and instantly found what you were referring to. My ...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

Well, I'm back again, to make more of a pest of myself! :lol: Does nobody know the answer to my previous problem, re that "vr" contextual alt working okay in FC, but not when you do a WOFF test? I seem to have been on hold with working on that font, ever since that problem arose. If it hel...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

I'm still stumped on my previous question, so in the meantime I popped open the very first font I ever did, way back 20 years ago or so, of my own handwriting, and which I'd never really finished up. That one has no opentype features at all, no kerning or anything, and I remembered something I saw t...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

Okay, I've made tons of headway with my font, but what's going on here? If I type the word "wœvres" or "vroom" in FC then it comes out like it should -- with the "vr" combination swapping out the "r" for "r.alt" -- and it works fine in FC, but not wh...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

I just had to say... I'm just absolutely giddy with delight over what I've learned over this last week, and how it's truly transformed my font completely! I thought I wasn't doing too badly at trying to create a font out of Thoreau's handwriting before I started getting into these contextual alts, b...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

Yes, this is looking great! Oh, thanks! I personally don't feel as though it's anything spectacular, as far as script/handwriting fonts go -- there's so many far more "beautiful" fonts like out there, after all -- but that wasn't my goal, of course. I was striving simply to have it look l...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

Okay! Thanks for straightening me out on that, Erwin -- I think it's all working correctly now. Here it is again (attached) -- although obviously this is nowhere near the final version yet (the latest version will always be via the link in my original post here), but in case anyone is curious to see...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

Oh, I thought these things "had" to have 2 rules. Okay, clearly I'm not getting this as well as I thought I was, and need to revisualize the whole thing.

I'll be back... :roll:

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

Oh, I've got it -- almost! Except now it's doing the opposite of what I want it to do. Instead of only changing the "i" if it's to the left of a "t," it's changing every "i" except those that are next to a "t"! And that "ti" lig shows up as it's supp...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

If you want to substitute an "i" with an "i.alt" if it precedes by a "t" and is followed by any other letter, then use this: backtrack: t input: i lookahead: @letters substitution tables: sub i -> i.alt Hmm... I wonder if we're addressing the problem in different ways....

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

I keep forgetting that you have to think backwards, in a way, in that chaining context dialog box -- like, if I want to do substitutions related to "iti," then in that dialog box you have to think in terms of "tit." I think that's what keeps screwing me up. But anyway, I thought ...

Re: Need help with Handwriting Font

Remember the substitution only applies to the input. Oh, okay. So I guess I would indeed have to create two separate chaining contexts? Ugh, it's trying to logically think my way through this that makes my head explode. :shock: I'm confused here because doing those beginners/enders -- is the "...
