Re: Smallcaps suggestions?

Never mind -- just re-did it all from scratch. In fact, I re-did it twice -- why? Because I'm an idiot. :oops: I am certainly still curious, though, if it it WOULD have been possible to just edit the actual code, and saved myself all that re-entering of everything all over again (twice! ugh!) -- but...

Personally? I would just redo it right.
Is there no way to just go right in the code editor thingie there (in the OTD) and simply swap out a line or two with a different one, to change it from a single substitution to a multiple one?

Re: Smallcaps suggestions?

Exactly what type of look up did you add? If it was a Multiple Substitution, and the "h" was added to the bottom entry section, it should work fine. Oh, I did a single substitution instead. Well, crapperoony -- is there a way to change what I already did now, so that I don't have to re-do the whole...

Re: Smallcaps suggestions?

Or, use a Multiple Substitution lookup and swap out the lig for the plain SC characters. This is what I did for the screen shot below. I added a Multiple Sub lookup to my smcp. I added the fi ligature to it and I am "decomposing" that single fi.small cap into two small cap characters. This way even...

Re: Smallcaps suggestions?

I suppose it depends on the font, whether ligs for the same uppercase combinations would merit having as a lig. Like, with my lowercase, I have ligs for ffb, ffh, ffk, etc. but I can't see those being ligs as uppercase -- at least, I could certainly create them as "three-part glyphs," but I might as...

Re: Naming (and font properties) for a font family

Oh, gee, y'know what? Although that method of naming my fonts worked out great in Photoshop -- where you get "Alde" for a family name, and then a sub-menu listing all the various alternatives (i.e.my regular, italic, smallcaps, etc. fonts) -- I only noticed just now that in other software it doesn't...

Re: Smallcaps suggestions?

Okay! It only took me, like, a year to do this, but I finally added in all my smallcaps into my regular/roman font, and everything swaps out nicely when you select the smcp option. :) Just one problem, though... I have so many ligatures in my font, like for all sorts of things including "gg," "tt," ...

Re: AutoMetrics & AutoKern Greek & Extended Greek characters ONLY?

They didn't have FontCreator or Autometrics in the time of the Greeks. Ha ha -- well, they didn't have it in the Renaissance either (from when the original metal types that my fonts are based on were made)! Maybe I should just delete all my kerning, etc. and make them really authentic? :D A workaro...

Too many or too complex contours?

I'm trying to make a set of decorative initials, based on some woodcuts of Hans Holbein, except I've swapped out the initials of my own font in place of those in his originals, then copied those from Photoshop into FontCreator. Everything's done, except I can't seem to get the font to validate! I ha...

Re: Weird ebook bug?

Don't know if this is of interest to anyone else, but re the size of my space character -- which wasn't my original post/query here, of course, but an afterthought that I added at the end -- I wasn't sure what to set the size of my space character to, if there was a "correct" way of doing that. I su...

Weird ebook bug?

Well, this is odd. Last night I completed the Greek character set for my regular font, and out of laziness I just ran the "Italics" script via the Glyph Transformer (rather than going through that whole ordeal of creating a "real" italic Greek character set -- although I may eventually do that down ...

Re: AutoMetrics & AutoKern Greek & Extended Greek characters ONLY?

Well, that's weird. My own suggestion in my last reply here seemed to make perfect sense to me, so I just tried it -- but autometrics seems to have no effect at all on either of the Greek character sets, they're still all monospaced (with the same bearings throughout, that I'd given them before). :r...

Re: AutoMetrics & AutoKern Greek & Extended Greek characters ONLY?

This earlier thread may help . Oh, that was interesting to read -- although what it was that you were trying to do, Bhikkhu, I'm not too sure? Were you trying to kern all your Greek along with everything else, too (Latin, etc.) but it wasn't working? Was that the issue there? If I understood that c...

AutoMetrics & AutoKern Greek & Extended Greek characters ONLY?

Phew! I just added in pretty nearly the complete Greek and Extended Greek character sets to my regular font -- 121 of 135 glyphs of the former (only missing the 14 Coptic characters in that set), and all 233 of the latter. :shock: I haven't got a freakin' clue about what "looks good" for this langua...
