Re: Petite Capitals script

Well, I tried it out ... I changed that UnicodeData.txt entry to:
E9DD; PETITE CAPS LATIN CAPITAL LETTER E WITH TILDE;Ll;0;L;;;;;N;;;;;
and when I ran the PCPU script, all of the accents were down to just above the x-height as they should be.
Yahooo! :lol:

Re: Petite Capitals script

In examining the various locations where Ẽ and ẽ are "defined", I found that in the UnicodeData.txt file, the entry for Ẽ as a petite capital seems to identify Ẽ as uppercase whereas the adjacent petite capital entries mark them as lowercase: E9A5; PETITE CAPS W DIAERESIS;Ll;0;L;;;;;N;;;;; E9BD; TIT...

Re: Petite Capitals script

Bhikkhu said: Why do you need support for Ẽ and ẽ. These are included in Latin Extended Additional, to complete the character set and support Vietnamese, etc. That seems to be a strange question coming from a typography maven!!! Ẽ, ẽ is a letter in which the tilde indicates a nasal vowel. It is the ...

Re: Petite Capitals script

Ok, one little step closer . . . The problematic Ẽ must be added to UnicodeData.txt in TWO places. As it stands now, UnicodeData.txt is incomplete ... at least in the area of the Petite Caps. Blocks.txt also needs extensive revision in order to properly display the PUA ranges. The only sources I hav...

Re: Petite Capitals script

CompositeData.xml resolve multiple copies Version 08 was Updated 25th August 2018 Version 07 was Updated 30th July 2018 The Current version has the E tilde (Ẽ) definition which I just added and version 08 lacks it. Version 07 is missing a line @ 45323 which 08 has. ∴ the 08 version is the most recen...

Re: Petite Capitals script

After an exhaustive examination, I concluded: retain ArabicShaping.txt and Scripts.txt from UnicodeData AUG 2017.zip (file dates 08/01/17). Overwrite Blocks.txt (the one I had just so proudly added to) and UnicodeData.txt with UnicodeData AUG 18 2018.zip (file dates 06/21/17) These last two files ha...

Re: Petite Capitals script

Damn, after posting that question about the individual listings in the PUA, I open FC to find that it is now listing the glyph names in the PUA which had gone missing. I have too many copies of these various files and somehow got them crossed up. I will have to sort them out, sorry.

Re: Petite Capitals script

Thanks I added the unicode ranges listed in your tutorial pdf (updating the Low Profile Diacritics range) to the Blocks.txt file. I find those PUA ranges in the outline view helpful. I noticed that the 06/21/2017 unicode.dat had an individual glyph listing (E000-F206) which is no longer in the 08/01...

Re: Petite Capitals script

Yes, I had examined CompositeData.xml to extract a new list of Low Profile Diacritics because I thought the middle dot was too large at one point in my thousand iterations! I noticed that 184 (middle dot) was missing from the collection of low profile diacritics so that had to be the cause … now I s...

Re: Petite Capitals script

I got it to work!!! Setting the caps-height to match the x-height put the accents where they belong. And, the 08/01/17 files gave the only result which had no unrecognized glyphs. However, they yielded no breakdown of the PUC in the outline … it appeared that the attempt to name glyphs in the PUA st...

Re: Petite Capitals script

Well, setting the cap-height to the x-height and setting the x-height 30% lower than original was not enough to get the petite caps accents positioned just above the original x-height when the PCPU script was run... they all went above the original cap-height. Are there other settings which need cha...

Re: Petite Capitals script

My umpteenth shot at getting this right . . .

On the Petite characters, the accents are above the cap height which means that they will have to be adjusted manually. The good news, I got the pesky SS Þ Ŋ & Œ petite capitals correct!

Re: Petite Capitals script

Running the PUA Petite Capitals script won't have this result. This happens only if you wish to use complete composites on these characters as an aid to design if your font does not yet have contours for these glyphs. Decompose them, and use the knife tool and get union of contours to complete the ...
