Re: Cut out overlap in Word and PDF

Run the font validator. Some of your glyphs have contours with incorrect direction.

Outer contours should be clockwise, while inner contours should be anti-clockwise.

Re: How do I write my own Glyph Transformer functions?

One can only use the available commands in the Glyph Transform Dialog to compose scripts.

Glyph Transformer.

There is no way to write one’s own functions to add to the available features.

Re: Invalid LoadGlyphOutlinesFromStream format. Corrupt project?!

I backup all of my font projects using 7-Zip, which gives good compression, and I save the archives to DropBox and USB sticks. Having a backup copy only on your hard drive is no help at all if your hard drive crashes, or your PC gets stolen or destroyed by a fire.

Re: How to undo font deletion within MainType

I disagree. Users should always backup their data if it is important to them. We recommend to make backups regularly; preferably not on the same hard disk. After all, your PC could get stolen, destroyed in a fire, or suffer a fatal hard drive error. All that any software should do is give you the op...

Re: Help adding a character onto an existing Arabic font

If adding a glyph you may well need to add it to a class being used by an OpenType feature that does the repositioning.

Re: Hide fonts in Photoshop and Office apps

I suspect that uninstalling them is the only way. However, uninstalling system fonts is not recommended.

Using a font manager makes it easy to uninstall and reinstall groups of fonts. Just add them to a group and uninstall/reinstall them in one fell swoop.

Re: How can I configure how much movement by 1 step?

Use the keyboard modifiers:
  1. Ctrl+Cursor keys = 1 funit
  2. Cursor keys alone = 10 funits
  3. Shift+Cursor keys = 100 funits
Tip: Select multiple nodes to move them all together in parallel.

Re: New Glyphs: How Do I set them to specific characters?

Keyboard mapping is independent of glyph mapping.

To type accented characters like à you should enable an International keyboard in Windows, then type `followed by the vowel to type àèìòù or ÀÈÌÒÙ.

What accents have you added, and what are their glyph mappings?
