Re: Character Map for Open Type Fonts & a code?

It would help if you listed several of the fonts not working for you in the off chance I also have them so I can check.

Re: Identify Fonts Please

Hello, Does any font guru here know any of these fonts? Your help would be very, very appreciated.

Re: Changed drive; fontcreator can't find itself

Applications simply do not like being copied, and in most cases, application movers are also prone to error. Reinstall. And you may have to go so far as to put it back on your drive F and uninstall first.

Re: Fonts supposedly loaded by an external application

Ok. I finally got rid of them (there was a couple others not shown as well). Actually had a single application they showed up in other than MT. But all other applications didn't show them. Ran CCCleaner, rebooted and didn't rid Windows of all these phantom fonts. But it did a couple. Deleted Windows...

Fonts supposedly loaded by an external application

Getting pretty tired of this. I uninstalled MT 5.1 because of one font family that always shows up with the Red state icon. I deleted the font from every location on my harddrive--indeed, I never have installed it. There are technically 4 variations of the 4 ARB listed fonts. Two each OTF and TTF, t...

Re: Character Map for Open Type Fonts & a code?

Hello Jacki, Once your text is entered, highlight a character or characters. There will be a downward arrow below the text. Please note if you highlight the enter text string that the downward arrow is darn difficult to see and use. But then, I only change some characters. I think this is a flaw in ...

Re: GPOS and/or KERN Tables

I don't have an earlier version of Word installed here, just 2010. Turning kerning on is in the font dialog for a given style. Turning it on using our Minion Pro as an example shows the same kerning as ID/QXP.

Take care, Mike

Re: GPOS and/or KERN Tables

No, InDesign and Quark use GPOS tables.

In the case of the Ws pair, it is simply not in the Minion font.

The screen shots are from ID and Quark. The two pairs are clearly using GPOS, the Ws pair isn't defined.

Re: Help me find the fonts in Red please

Likely going to be a modified font. For the HALF, I would suspect the designer started with something like:

The other word is pretty stylized, but many Germanic-type of fonts would work for a beginning.

Somewhere between the attached perhaps? Font names are part of the filenames.

The Leander Script capture is Adobe's Turkish Lira for that font.
