Re: Glyph Properties Dialogue Issue

Not normally reproducible here, but this will happen if you change some glyph properties, then switch to another program, e.g. Calculator, without clicking on Apply. No a bug IMO, it is just how the dialogue works. What is more disconcerting is that the dialogue disappears from view when switching t...

Re: Transform Wizard question

Please give a step by step recipe with a screenshot of your Transform Wizard before you clicked on OK.

If bugs cannot be reproduced, they cannot be fixed.

Renaming the glyphs using your advice seemed to improve the situation. Now there are only a few glyphs that don't generate which I can live with. Thanks again.
Tell us which glyphs don't generate, then we can tell you which accents or base glyphs are missing or incorrectly named.

Re: Transform Wizard question

Go to Tools, Options, Advanced, and Open the User Data Folder. If the Transform scripts are not there, this might be an issue with write permissions for that folder. Copy the data files and try again.

Re: Composites not all generated in FC12

The new version requires combining diacritical marks. If you're using an old font project with only modifier accents, add the combining diacritic equivalents, and try again. Where the new version uses glyph names, they must be correct. Use Tools, Glyph Names, Generate to ensure that your glyphs are ...

Re: Transform Wizard question

The settings that you change in the Transform Wizard are only saved if you actually apply them by clicking OK. I don't think anything has changed. This behaviour is the same in 11.5. What has changed, is that Transformations can now be undone, so you don't need to be so concerned that running the wi...

Re: bearings missing

It was intentional removed because, as you discovered, it only duplicates what is on the Glyph Properties toolbar.

Re: How to align vertically individual letters?

The Glyph Transform is on the Tools menu. It is not available in the Home Edition. In the Home Edition you will have to move or position glyphs one by one in the Glyph Edit window using the Transform floating toolbar illustrated in the screenshot. As I said in my previous post: One can select severa...

Re: How to align vertically individual letters?

Not all letters should be in the same vertical position. Those with flat bases, like L need to sit on the baseline, while those with rounded bases, like O or 0, need to overshoot the baseline. The same is true about the tops of some letters needing to overshoot the x-height or CapHeight. Then, of co...

Re: Overlapping issues when joining two characters

Enable the Validation Toolbar, or run the Font Validator.

Some of your contours have an incorrect direction.

Unmapped Character.png In your font, several glyphs are unmapped alternative forms of A, B, C, etc. In CorelDraw, these extra glyphs can be displayed in CorelDr...

FontCreator can only open TTF/OTF/WOFF fonts, or its own project files.
