Re: Colour fonts - SVG and CPAL and COLR

> I do not think the palette is actually stored in a font.

One or more colour palettes are stored in the font of a CPAL COLR font, it is the CPAL table.

Re: Colour fonts - SVG and CPAL and COLR

Hi Mike Thank you for replying. ... be able to alter the color palettes of such fonts (which may be impossible, but ya never know) ... It would seem to be very easy to alter the CPAL/COLR specification to allow for this, though I have not done it so I cannot be sure. At present, colour FFFF can be u...

Colour fonts - SVG and CPAL and COLR

Alas, I have not kept up to date with OpenType developments. I asked about colour font support for the Serif Affinity Publisher program, and a recent post seems to suggest that SVG rather than the CPAL and COLR format is the thing now. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/78185-will-aff...

Italicizer Maquette font

Re: Size of the glyph

An important thing to know is that in Windows based systems (I don't know one way or the other about other systems) when one chooses a particular point size in an application program, the point size is only from the baseline upwards. So in a font where the lower part of g j p q y goes below the base...

Re: Historical forms and historical ligatures

That really is good.

Thank you for pointing it out both here and in the Affinity Publisher forum.

I have downloaded a copy of your Lekhana font and I am trying it out.

Thank you.

Historical forms and historical ligatures

In the thread https://forum.high-logic.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7824 MikeW mentions historical forms. I have it in mind to suggest in the Affinity Publisher forum that historical ligature ligature become included in the Affinity Publisher program. Thus far I have found that there appear to be two rel...

Previewing ligature glyphs

Suppose that one is designing a ligature glyph for an OpenType font, for example a ct ligature with c_t as the glyph name, but no code point assigned. Suppose that one wishes to preview the design in the Preview panel, by pressing p on the highlighted glyph cell while in glyph overview mode. Alas, t...

Re: Is .notdef required or not?

I presume those are the only "empty" glyphs (or non-glyphs -- since there is no actual glyph) that a font should have, eh? The space character does not usually have any contours in it, but it does need a codepoint, namely hexadecimal 20, and it does need an advance width so that every time a space ...
