Re: r.init not showing at the beginning of a line

Mike, I think the idea is to use r.init after a newline code as well as after a space.

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

The Cap Height for the font is currently 1434 funits. Figure 3 Baseline = +1 funit, height of glyph = 1433 funits (See the size tab of the Transform Toolbar). Note that your horizontal guide is at 1432 funits, not 1434. Double-click the ruler to remove duplicate guides and to move guides to a precis...

Re: Major Re-config + Cloud use

Uninstalling is done in the usual way from Windows Control Panel, Apps. You can opt to delete the databases or leave them IIRC.

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

That's better, but still a lot to do. Fix baseline/cap height alignment, and overshoots as recommended above Fix curve smoothing for all serifs (example below). I have fixed the figure 5 to have smoother serifs and precisely horizontal/vertical strokes. Fix glyph metrics (I ran the attached file thr...

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

None of the changes that I recommended above have been made. Only one thing to add is that rounded serifs need to overshoot the baseline and caps height by a small amount to make the bottoms and tops of glyphs align visually. So, for example, the bases of the 1 and 2 will sit on the baseline, but th...

Re: Major Re-config + Cloud use

I notice you list 650K files as a rough max for MT9. The Comparison Chart says that the number of fonts supported by the Professional Edition is unlimited. For the Standard Edition it is limited to 10,000 fonts. MainType is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The 64-bit version is faster ...

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

Take a look at this Video on Using FontCreator 11.0 . The various methods of creating contours are described from 3:50 onwards. The glyphs in your font could probably be created quite easily using the Free Draw Tool, holding shift to constrain strokes to horizontal or vertical. Set the line width as...

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

I am curious to know how you are drawing the glyphs to get so many rough corners and contours with incorrect direction?

Re: How to remove overlapping anchors in batch?

The font validation wizard can detect and tag glyphs with intersecting co-ordinates, but they must be fixed manually.

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

There is not much lacking, apart from a .notdef glyph. There are a number of common errors, some of which I have fixed in the attached project file. Lots of redundant points, off-curve extremes, and contours with incorrect direction. I fixed glyphs: 0,1, and ? Use the Validation Toolbar (F7) to spot...

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

I resize and replaced your camera images and placed them inline for easier reading. To take a screen shot, focus the text area of the Preview Toolbar and press Alt+Printscreen. Paste that image into Windows Paint, IrfanView, or whatever and save it as a PNG image (best for screenshots; use JPG for ...

The color palette supports colors with transparency, so it might be possible to mimic it.
Tricky though, because it needs a graduated transparency to look good, which would mean several shadows with increasing transparency.

Re: Shadow

It is not possible to include transparency in a font. You can only get a sharp shadow. You could use a grey colour with colour glyphs, but it would still be sharp.
