That's a weird shortcut but it works, thanks.
Is there a map for the commands, if I forget anything? (or want to learn new commands like this)?
Just look at the menu.

Can you add an "Edit Selected Glyphs" shortcut, when right clicking on some glyphs?
Try Alt+L, N, E. If you use any function frequently, you soon memorise the Access Key route, which is available for most, if not all, commands.

Re: Transform Wizard - Auto-rotate

From the Font menu, select Validate. This will fix numerous font defects and list any that it cannot fix in the Troubleshooting section of the Overview side panel.

This feature is not available in the Home Edition.

Re: Transform Wizard: Insert Glyphs After Selected

A useful enhancement. The feature "Override Range by Glyph Name(s)" selects glyphs g, h OK, but unfortunately, they don't stay selected when the Insert Glyphs command is executed. The new glyphs are still added at the end of the font. I also noticed that an old bug is not fixed yet in build 2430. If...

Re: Home edition v.11.5 and kerning

My long post got swallowed by the forum in spite of saving a draft :cry: but it was too long for a forum post, to be honest. I added a tutorial on OpenType Kerning in FontCreator 11.5 to my blog, where there is more room for a detailed explanation. If anything is unclear, let me know, and I will upd...

Re: Color font doesn't work with Ver. 11.5

There are some colour metric conflicts. The coloured glyphs have zero advance width

Re: Verajja Update

Version 3.95 improved the superscript glyphs. The bold transform after scaling tends to leave some strokes too thick, so some manual adjustment of nodes is usually needed. Version 3.96 fixed a bug in Verajja Regular where × was left as a composite of + when it should be made simple, edited, and rota...

Re: Photoshop and Illustrator Plugins

...just the fact that High-Logic has this great Font Forum makes me want to give MainType Professional a try. Particularly since my current FM has removed its user forum! Download and try out the free version. It only supports 2,500 fonts, and has some other limitations , but you can have a good lo...
