Re: Save background image

The background image is saved only while the Glyph Edit Window remains open. Each glyph edit window can have its own background image. To continue working from last time, click on Copy from Current Glyph. If you want the original image, you will have to load it again.

Re: "Cut"/"Paste" context menu items are enabled/disabled incorrectly

You posted a reply to a topic in the MainType forum, but you are using FontCreator 12.

Please describe your issue clearly.

Re: Registration code

I suspect that FontCreator 5 will work with Windows 10. Version 6.5 does. Try installing your old programs and see if they work.

IrfanView will open PaintShop Pro images. It is free for non-commercial use. Only €10 for commercial use.

Re: Registration code

Your versions are too old to qualify for Upgrade Pricing. Your product key will only work for FontCreator 5.0 and MainType 2.

MainType 9.0 is free for non-commercial use, but has fewer features. You can try it out for as long as you want, until you need the extra features.

Re: Support for fonts in CorelDraw

I wonder why CorelDraw makes life difficult for its users?

Maybe try entering Design Languages.

Re: Export ESP

Moved to the Support forum. To know the right forum, look at the descriptive text in the Forum Index.

Truetype fonts are scalable. To get the desired Cap Height in CorelDraw, adjust the point size. The ratio of Cap Height to x-height will be the same in both programs.

On the Background Image Dialogue (shortcut F9), click on Load...

Scale and position the image using the controls on the dialogue.

Re: Color font in Ilustrator, black in FontCreator

SVG format is apparently not supported by FontCreator, which uses the Microsoft Color Format first introduced with Windows 8.1.

Open the OpenType Designer (Ctrl+F8) and look at the Standard Ligatures. fi ligature should be composed from f+i; and fl ligature should be composed from f+l.

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...
