Re: school font, coloured line [solved]

1-4. Because the glyphs have errors, and it is much less work to do it before proceeding. 6. If glyphs have already been colorized to blue, decolorize them first, then colorize to black 7. Because the glyphs are all different widths. Colour glyph members must all be the same width, so the line glyph...

I just want to bold the specified member in the composite glyph. But the original member should not be bold.
Then just select the glyph members that you wish to be bolder, e.g. the accents.

Re: How to create bold font?

You can apply the bold transformation to all selected glyphs at once. FontCreator 12 supports undo, so you can quickly test with different values until you get the desired results. The fine adjustments to serifs and thin strokes will have to be done one glyph at a time. Scroll through the glyphs in ...

Re: How to cut and paste common parts to other locations?

Without reordering any glyphs you can use the button on the overview toolbar to sort glyphs by advance width. Since the combining diacritics should all have zero advance width they will be grouped together.

The headers go wrong from the start and never correct themselves. I think it should be a simple fix to produce a new manual.
