Re: Producing a colourized glyph using FontCreator 7.5.0

I am happy to try to add some images made from Print Screen images. However, as the screen display changes so many times during the tutorial, are there any particular images that you would particularly like to be posted? I would have thought that you could simply take a screenshot for each step, or...

Re: Import Entire Alphabet at Once

I think you could sell more font creation program if it is more easy to use. Your FontCreator app reminds me of a microwave oven which has a ton of features that most people generally know about, but never use, as long as there is a minute + button and a popcorn button on a microwave it gets most o...

[FIXED] Typo in Error Message

When I tried to open the file 'Logicol.fcp' which I downloaded from this thread , I got an error message because I hadn't updated from 7.0.1.458 to 7.5.0.508. As you can see from the attached screenshot, the error message says 'openend' instead of 'opened'; if I press 'No', I get a further error box...

I presume that you aren't asking how to take a screenshot! :P

If you have a 32-bit version of Windows, installing the Font Properties Extension from Microsoft Typography will provide you with the extra tabs in the Properties dialog.

Re: Kerning doesn't work

Although there is nothing wrong with the font file (technically speaking), it seems Microsoft Word refuses to process any kerning from the kern table if it detects one or more of the glyphs within a kern pair is not mapped to a Unicode character. I realize such pair is not useful for Word, but I re...

Neither do I, but I suspect that required ligatures are involved here.

Re: Unable to Find Glyph $09F8

Searching for "#$9F8" finds me the glyph with glyph index #$09F8, searching for "$9F8" finds me the glyph at code point $09F8 and searching for "9F8" finds me any glyphs with the character sequence 9F8 in the glyph name. I wouldn't expect a search for "#9F8" to find anything, because 9F8 isn't a val...

I think I would write it with a varying stroke weight, like the pound sign in that font. In that particular case there is no question about the upward curve of the bottom stroke, but point taken!

Turkish Lira Currency Symbol

I meant to ask about that when I first saw your other thread. Shouldn't the bottom stroke, as part of a half anchor, be a quarter circle? :?

Re: Vertical Positioning of Baseline

so that worked more or less for the spacing (thanks again), now I've got missing characters(in this example ":" and some elongated "-" don't know what else throughout the font). Could you have accidentally deleted some of the glyphs? Open the font in FontCreator, press Ctrl+F to display the Find di...

Re: Transform Toolbar: Position Tab

It works fine for me in contour mode. In point mode, I find that the first edit works OK, but in order for any further changes to 'take' I need to click in the glyph edit window after pressing 'Apply' in the Transform dialog.

Re: Adding OpenType features: Long GSUB Strings

My copy of Ligatures 004 seems to lack a glyph for the 'sh' ligature. Have you added some new glyphs since then? Thank you for your interest. Yes, I added the sh ligature because I did not have an sp ligature that was in the High-Logic default template code from which I started, so I changed it. He...
