Re: Font metrics - with respect to Row Height in Excel

I don't have Excel to test. In my tables, using a fixed line height reduces the minimum row height.

Re: The checkbox "OEM Character Set"

Just use the Calculate button and let FontCreator decide whether it is enabled or not.

Re: Where is the "Bearing" menu on Dialog Box of Transform

The bearing tab was removed as it is duplicated on the Glyph Properties dialog.

Re: Positioning of Diacritic Marks when doing Optical Metrics

See What's New in FontCreator 12 from 1 min 55 seconds, which shows how automatic diacritic positioning using anchors is better than the older Complete Composites method, especially for italic fonts.

Re: Font metrics - with respect to Row Height in Excel

The baseline will be lower if you change those metrics like that. Try using fixed line height in Excel.

Re: Font Selection in Word

Make sure that you calculate the Unicode Ranges in Font Properties. Word probably thinks the Chinese character set is not supported in your font, so it switches to another font that does.

You should be able to delete attachments by editing your posts, but I have done it for you.

Edited posts would probably need approval again.

Re: Ligature Substitution doesn't work on Test window​ of FontCreator 12

I presume that you meant to write FontCreator 11.5, not Fontlab 11.5

No such problem here. Standard ligatures are substituted in the Font Test window.

We may need a copy of the font to see what the issue is.

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

I have deleted the font from my post. I don't think I can offer much more help on this. It is best for new users to learn by doing rather than having it done for them. That way, one learns more and remembers it better.

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

Don't worry about that. It will just be another forum member who wants to look at it to offer suggestions. Any font published on the Internet can easily be stolen, but original work is automatically protected by copyright. Protecting one's rights needs deep pockets and lawyers. A beginner's font lik...

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

The amount of overshoot that looks right will vary from font to font, so yes, you can make your own rules as long as you apply them consistently. It looks like you may need rather more overshoot than you currently have.
