I see that the page now even includes direct links to the old installers so I don't have to use the form.
Yes, that’s why I said the email “will also” include the links. ;)

Re: A vague complaint - upgrades, old installers, etc.

The older versions seems to be hidden in a secret place or something. The secret place is the page where you go to retrieve lost registration codes ( Support > Registration Codes ). If you submit the form, the email that you receive in response to your request will also include the relevant link/s.

Oh, wow -- interesting. Y'know, all this time I've been using FC, I never even noticed that offset thing there (nor the AW thing either -- whatever that is).
AW = Advance Width. ;)

Re: Disappearance of small letter i diacritics when clicking composite icon

I'd be interested to know if there are any other languages that use it. Bookmark the site that I referenced. The Letter Database . It is a useful resources for such questions. Dotless i Usage.png Thanks, Bhikkhu Pesala. It wasn't obvious that each character in the language table is linked to a page...

Some languages (e.g. Turkish) also use the dotless ı as an alphabetic character on its own.
I've always regarded the presence of ı in a piece of text as a clear sign that the language in question is Turkish! I'd be interested to know if there are any other languages that use it.

I added what I thought were small capitals, only to find out later that I had added petite capitals, and I still don't know what the difference is
As I understand it, petite capitals should be optically aligned with the x-height but small capitals are noticeably taller.

We consider both SVG fonts and EOT format obsolete.
The current OpenType specification allows for OpenType fonts to contain an SVG table.

Re: Some MTPro V8.0.0.1124 64Bit questions--Glyphs and "Library"

If you have ever used Typograf (the paid version--I have no idea if the free version also has it), the properties dialog contains a TON of information about the font itself. See screenshot for an example, from ACaslonReg. They really ought to proofread their dialogs and fix silly typos like “WidhtC...

Re: InDesign plug-in shows empty window

Perhaps if you were to add some text stating that there are currently no options available, it would reassure users that nothing is wrong.

Note the space between the first and second symbol in the two images, they are closer together in the second grouping than the first grouping.
The Mercury, Venus and Mars symbols are considerably farther apart in the second grouping.

Re: Font issue in Word 2016

Now suppose however that one wants a font whereby one can type an E on the keyboard and on the screen appears a picture of, say, a daffodil. There is nothing to stop anyone making such a non-standard font. Such fonts can be useful in some situations. But that is non-standard! This is where a Symbol...

Re: Font Information Panel-Maintype8 Professional

I think SCHLBKB.TTF is the full file name in your case, Irene. I only have the regular style of that font, but my copy bears the even more cryptic file name 'tt0083m_.ttf'; I suspect that Bhikkhu Pesala renamed his copy for ease of recognition.
