Though I said it solves only half the problem, in fact it doesn't even solve that much, as the font has to wrap from bottom to top too. :(

Have you thought of fixing a prism to the hand-held device?

I am assuming that you have downloaded Font Creator 4 from the download page. This has a Transform toolbar, which can be used to mirror characters horizontally and vertically. The latest beta version has a transformation wizard that will do this for the entire font. Accents remain at the top of lett...

Kerning reduces the white space between letter pairs. If the kerning value would be less than the minimum value that you set, auto-kerning doesn't bother to kern that pair.

Positive kerning increases white space between some letter pairs. This is off by default.

Truetype fonts can be installed in the usual way by copying them to the Windows Font folder. Font Creator does not need to be installed. Your questions are unrelated to the Font Creator program, you would have more success on a general PC forum or Visual Basic forum.

I think that is probably the problem. You need to check the ranges used in your font - Latiin Extended A for your characters I believe.

The program calculates the X and Y Maximums and Minimums from the glyphs in your font. As far as I know you can make characters overlap in Word, let alone touch, simply by using fixed line-spacing. If you have designed your symbols with no white space, there shouldn't be any horizontal gaps unless y...

Yes. Options, Sample, Glyph Width and Glyph Height. This will enlarge the entire sample bar, so small contours can be made to display bigger. The maximum vertical size is 200.

Define a separate font with just the bits you need to use on your sample bar and select that from the Options, Sample menu.

Font Creator makes fonts for Windows, not for the Mac.

Try using a GIF or PNG with transparency instead of JPG for the text.

Make sure you have the latest beta version of the program. It is now very easy to create Outline fonts with the Glyph Transformer option. In the transform dialogue you move transformations that you wish to use into the right-hand window, and remove those you don't wish to use. :arrow: Save your font...

No, but then why would one wish too?

In theory, one could use print-screen to make bitmaps of an installed system font, then import those one by one into Font Creator to create a Truetype font, but is hard to see the justification for that.

Here is one I did. The Varsity font, a Serif version of University Roman, is thin, and has no bold version. I made a bold version using the glyph transform. This is not nearly heavy enough for a true bold version, but I assume that what you want is just to make your font slightly heavier. http://for...

It will be very much a matter of trial and error - mostly error to begin with. Save you font as a copy first. And apply the bold effect, which seems to be very heavy for what you need. There is no undo either, so you have to reopen your font each time until you get it right. When you are happy with ...
