Just copy a-z from the UPPERCASE range to the LOWERCASE range. Then it won't matter.

Try this. Load the font... Select TOOLS--> AUTO METRICS -->Select the Glyphs you want to make Monospaced-->Next-->Select "FIXED" and adjust as needed... then "FINISH" The GLYPHS are now fixed width. It's still up to you to CENTER the glyphs inside the width you specified in the "FIXED" settings, but...

There was an issue with some of the recent revisions of the FCP tool that, unknown to the average user, set the SYMBOL FONT flags in the FORMAT-->SETTINGS-->RANGES for UNICODE and CODEPAGE tables that would cause your average application to NOT see the font as a standard WESTERN font and BAM, you ge...

I agree with bhikkhu, You need to just buckle up and spend some time with FCP. It starts to get real easy with practice... faster than Corel IMHO. I am a long time Corel Draw user and many of my early TTF fonts were created using Corel Draw. I can see how having the work already done in Corel Vector...

Well, I'm not shy... but I am aware of the fact that my for work is rather focused. I usually do not create "complete" fonts. I create 3D Models for Computer Games, specifically "train simulators" and as a result, I often need to match fonts used by the many railroad companies in the US (Past and Pr...

For example: You need to make sure the 4.26 version ends up here... "C:\Program Files\High-Logic\Font Creator Program\FCP4.EXE" The system shoud ask if you want to o...

I tried it, finally

I must admit, when I finally tried this feature I was very surprized how easy it was to use. I remeber trying to use it once before... along time ago and gave up for some reason. Either I've gotten much better at font creation in general or this feature is much better... I'm not quite sure. (I'm rea...
