Re: Verajja Update

Version 3.95 improved the superscript glyphs. The bold transform after scaling tends to leave some strokes too thick, so some manual adjustment of nodes is usually needed. Version 3.96 fixed a bug in Verajja Regular where × was left as a composite of + when it should be made simple, edited, and rota...

Re: Photoshop and Illustrator Plugins

...just the fact that High-Logic has this great Font Forum makes me want to give MainType Professional a try. Particularly since my current FM has removed its user forum! Download and try out the free version. It only supports 2,500 fonts, and has some other limitations , but you can have a good lo...

Re: Screenshot of my MainType Layout

Compact Layout for 1024x768 Monitors

The image below is an animated PNG image. Most browsers support this image format now. If your browser does not, you will only see the first layout.

I made use of autohide for the Character, Font Information, and Sample Panes.

Re: Color font doesn't work with Ver. 11.5

I am not aware of any changes in recent versions.

If you can share the project file (*.fcp) we might be able to spot an error.

Re: Verajja Update

Version 3.94 added kerning pairs for the Stylistic Alternates (Drop Capitals) with Capitals, Small Capitals, and Petite Capitals. I calculated these using a temporary pair adjustments lookup. When I am satisfied with the result, I copy them to the main pair adjustment lookup that is actually used by...

Re: Adding additional characters

I never noticed this feature before.

Select a character set in the Overview panel and right-click. Add character will open the Insert Character dialogue at the selected character set.

Re: Colour Metrics Conflicts

The simple glyphs should have contours with correct directions. That should not break color glyph components, as the rasterizer should take care of overlapping issues. You seem to be correct. I thought I saw a problem earlier, but after validation and correcting the incorrect directions in the colo...

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

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

A possible bug with font validation is that it will correct contour directions for coloured glyphs, which will bre...
