Re: Naming (and font properties) for a font family

One needs to use the Extended tab and also use the naming fields properly on the Naming tab. A few applications will disregard those naming fields as regards keeping the fonts as a separate listing. So for your: - Alde Romane; - Alde Italick; - Alde Paltrye Cappes; and - Alde Blacke Magick. I would ...

...it's just a shame that I can't lump all four of my fonts together.
It can be done. Though I wouldn't do the blackletter in the style grouping myself. But that's just me, perhaps.

Re: Naming (and font properties) for a font family

Why not add the small caps to the regular font and access them both using the small caps OT feature and as a stylistic set for those applications that cannot use the small caps feature versus as a separate font? If you like the Wicked... name, naming it Alde Wicked... would keep the font near the ot...

Re: Nutso font doesn’t work correctly

BTW,

That Illy template should have two text blocks in it. Use the frame that has the text showing in my screen shot above. Do not create a new text frame.

Re: Nutso font doesn’t work correctly

Is that the downloaded template? If I use that Illustrator template, there is no grid showing. capture-002347.png If you are using CC (I am using CS6), try downloading and installing CS6 and load the template. If that works, then there is an issue in whatever CC version you are using. At that point ...

Aman is from Adobe...Welcome, Aman! Aman, you'll get pretty much the same answer wherever you post this (and have). It is simply not a useful concept.

Re: Nutso font doesn’t work correctly

@Mike I'm newcomer in font design and FontDesigner, what is WRT? in CC2018 the templates work only in InDesign. however when I write in InDesign its not possible to have the same result. OK.

Re: Nutso font doesn’t work correctly

World Ready Composer = WRC: I accidentally used a T at the end instead of C... The AI template should have opened fine in AI. It works fine in ID & AI CS6. If it doesn't in ID CC2018 then that points to either a problem that has crept in or one actually has to use an ME version (ME = Middle Eastern ...

Re: Nutso font doesn’t work correctly

OK. For versions of Illy that do not have the World Ready Composer (WRC), it can be turned on by opening a template that has been made using ME versions. Here's a screen shot of the WRC turned on in my non-ME version of Illy CS6: capture-002341.png One such template I found is available at Thomas Ph...

Re: Nutso font doesn’t work correctly

My AI CS6 doesn't implement marks. I suspect the newest version does as I don't think there is anything special needed to turn on the ME features (for which in older AI versions, the actual ME version is required...though I believe it can be scripted, ID can). My ID CS6 works properly as long as one...
