Re: Kaspersky Alarming Virus Warning

I performed a complete scan with Windows Defender and it listed more items associated with this detected "Trojan": containerfile:C:\Users\Nick\AppData\Local\Temp\FontCreatorSetup.exe containerfile:C:\Users\Nick\Downloads\FontCreatorSetup.exe file:C:\Users\Nick\AppData\Local\Temp\FontCreatorSetup.exe...

Re: Kaspersky Alarming Virus Warning

In Windows 10.1 Pro, Windows Defender just flagged FCOutDrw.dll as a Trojan on my machine ... More precisely, it said: "There is a problem [TrojanSpy:Win32/Banker] in [FCOutDrw.dll] You should run a full system scan to fix it." Even now after I removed the file from quarantine. I am looking for ways...

Re: Help with Open Type Designer

So then, you are suggesting that I map Ybreve to the Cyrillic letter u because they are Unicode characters which look like the Ybreve? I suppose that would not be a problem since this font does not have any Cyrillic characters although it does have scripts for Cyrillic. There are also scripts for "u...

Re: Help with Open Type Designer

Thanks, Bhikkhu Pesala, you helped me in the past with adding Sanskrit transliteration characters to another font I was working with. In this case, I thought a) that such scripting only worked for creating valid Unicode members (wrong) b) the vertical line glyph I was adding extended beyond WinAscen...

Re: Help with Open Type Designer

From the manual: Create composite glyphs You can create a composite glyph when you are editing an empty glyph in a Glyph Edit window. To add a composite glyph member select Glyph from the Insert menu. To add one or more glyphs as composite glyph members first copy glyphs from the Font Overview windo...

Re: Help with Open Type Designer

It also has the Y and y with a breve at codepoints $E776 and $E376. Junicode also has the Y and y with a breve at codepoints $F140 and $F141, respectively. I've no idea why they're duplicated. As I understand it, all of those locations are in the Private Use Area so they are “not protected”. In oth...

Re: Help with Open Type Designer

OK, here is another stupid question: Are composites also an Open Type "feature"? (as I work with this, I am thinking that composites are a FC "feature" and when a font is exported, simple, discrete characters are created) Since I cannot even stack combining glyphs properly without OT, I've concluded...

Junicode has some interesting glyphs/characters and it is HUGE!

Re: Beginner. Unable to test font in Windows 10

The issue Paul has with the Test Font Dialog only occurs during the trial period. People with a valid license don't have this problem, so this issue is not related to your problem. Ahem, I tried it myself and the Open Type features did not work (you told me yourself that it did not display my test ...

Re: Help with Open Type Designer

I think it will work just fine as long as both base and mark glyphs are mapped to the PUA. I guess I am not understanding you here. I've provided examples of base glyphs not in the PUA [/b] combining just fine with mark glyphs in the PUA except, of course, for the positioning problem. (See poem wit...

Re: Beginner. Unable to test font in Windows 10

This sounds like the same problem I am having.
Try using the "Test current font as WOFF" adjacent to the "Test current font as TTF/OTF"

Re: Help with Open Type Designer

PS FYI, below are examples of glyphs mapped to the PUA passing through Jotoh into an epub as read by ADE: Jutoh snippit.png ADE snippit.png So, the hex encoded glyphs (highbreve and highmacron) pass through only because there is no Open Type processing engine? Clearly, these are not perfectly positi...

Re: Help with Open Type Designer

Which characters do you need? There may be codepoints with precomposed accented characters already in Unicode for some or all of them. Yes I am aware of that, thank you. However, I would have to do an inventory on the existing accented characters in any font I use and I am positive that I would hav...

Re: Help with Open Type Designer

Perhaps I could take a different tack here. Instead of relying on open type features to create these accented vowels on the fly I could use the composing abilities of FC via a script to just create the 84 odd characters I need for this project. Hmmm....
