Re: How more than 255 glyphs are to be used ?

Or, indeed, add to background application. ŢţŞş

That works in some applications: Affinity Publisher, Notepad, Vivaldi, but not Serif PagePlus or WebPlus.

Colour Metrics Conflicts

I cannot see what they are, but my new colour glyphs suffer from "Color Metrics Conflicts." This usually happens because of different advance widths, but all are the same = 1674 funits. A possible bug with font validation is that it will correct contour directions for coloured glyphs, which will bre...

You can change the automatic check from one week to every day in Tools, Options, General, if you wish. The Changelog will also tell you when each update was released, with a brief li...

Re: How more than 255 glyphs are to be used ?

Please do not use my email address for asking questions.

Always ask on the forums, unless it is to report an issue with one of my free fonts.

Re: How more than 255 glyphs are to be used ?

Use an Extended Windows keyboard with dead keys to type àéïõû etc. Use OpenType glyph substitutions (if the software that you use supports OpenType features), e.g. ff, fi, fl, ffi, ffl are automatically replaced with Alphabetic Presentation Form: ff fi fl ffi ffl. These are the most common standard ligatu...

Re: Verajja Serif

Version 2.00 adds Stylistic Alternates for gold drop capitals — the Pagoda Symbol is now gold too. The Stylistic Set for symbols was changed to Character Variants, and a second Stylistic set was added for Romanian Alternate forms: Şş and Ţţ (Localised forms are not supported by the Serif Apps that I...

Re: Verajja Update

Version 3.80 added two glyphs for Transport and Map Symbols Stupa and Pagoda. The Web versions include Small Capitals and are hinted, but they have no Petite Capitals or Alternative Fractions, and fewer symbols. Some Unicode space glyphs were added back. The archive now includes WOFF and WOFF2 vers...

Re: Zoom Window Scroll

Detach the zoom panel, and resize it by grabbing the edges or the corner.

Re: Font Tags Repository

I cannot speak for High-Logic, but I don't ever see this happening. The High-Logic Team is way too small to devote time to setting up or maintaining a repository of tags. There is no money to be made from this. I doubt if one could find even two users who use the same tags in the same way. I delete ...

Re: Zoom Window Scroll

The font size only affects the Zoom Panel, not the zoom popup. I can see no problem with Consolas in the Zoom popup.

Re: Cubic vs. Quadratic

How the vectors are imported will depend on whether you selected TrueType Outline Format in Export Settings, or CFF Outlines Converting curves will alter the shape slightly. Try importing a vector with export options set to TrueType, then change the setting to CFF, and import it again. See screen s...

Re: New Button to Switch Encoding in the Overview Caption

This setting is only found on the Options dialogue in MainType, not in FontCreator as far as I could see. The shortcut is the quickest route, but a button on the Glyph Properties dialogue might be more accessible than on the already crowded toolbars. http://www.high-logic.com/fontcreator/manual11/fo...

Re: Optimize Contours vs. Font Validation 'fix detected problems'

Optimise Contours reduces the number of nodes if there are more than required. Copy the Background Image from the current contour before using it to see before/after. The changes to the glyph shape are usually very minor. The Font Validation Wizard will remove other errors. Contours with incorrect ...
