Re: Help with Open Type Designer

Erwin, thanks so much for the rapid and kind response. I apologize for not including the FC version number in my request for help; I was so intent on being as clear as possible that I neglected to inform you that I am using FC version 10.0.0 build 2125 running on Windows 10 Pro release 161004. No, I...

Help with Open Type Designer

I am having a difficult time understanding the Open Type Designer and how it functions. I am creating a modified combining breve and a modified combining macron to illustrate a treatise on poetry. Basically, I am just raising the glyphs up to the Typo Ascender. The Designer shows the glyphs being cl...

Re: Repairing glyphs

FYI: It appears that the # displayed by the real-time validation routine when one opens a "too complex" glyph is the last # displayed by the real-time validation.

Re: Repairing glyphs

Hah, when I reopened the first glyph to estimate the number of contours, the real-time validation identified it as #492 while it is really #297. There were not too many contours so I just upped the point limit to 600 and "No problems detected". #298 had one little problem an #299 and #300 were just ...

Re: Repairing glyphs

Glyph #0 is empty .notdef. I remember seeing a list of the minimum required glyphs some where on this board but I'll be darned if I can find it. I thought .notdef was ordinarily displayed when a codepoint could not be found in the font and usually had a little rectangle to represent an empty glyph. ...

Repairing glyphs

When the validation wizard gives me a list of glyphs which it cannot repair, I save the text file when there are many and I search for them, one after the other, to repair them. Several times now, when I double-click on the “found” glyph in order to edit it and the real-time glyph validation window ...

Re: Complete Composites

Wow, that Vietnamese.xml script is compact for the task it performs. (you have already done the heavy lifting with CompositeData.xml) I have a couple of questions: 1) Can you insert <CR>s in long comments between <contents> </contents> in order to keep them on the screen? 2) I assume you cannot inse...

Re: Complete Composites

FYI: Glyph Transform does not open unless there is a project or font loaded. Thanks, I'll have a look. <Composite><!-- Macron --> I would not care to count the number of "macron"s that are in that file ... How many times might "Modifier Letter Macron" be found? I would not have expected that single ...

Re: Complete Composites

Note that modifier letter macron can be composed from macron using Complete Composites, and macron can be composed from the hyphen. Aren't these composites controlled by CompositeData.xml? I can't seem to find "modifier letter macron" or "Modifier Letter Macron" in the file where I'd expect to see ...

Duh, manual adjustment took a minute and I even made the macron a little longer.

Re: Complete Composites

Bhikkhu Pesala said
However, most composite glyphs are designed to be left as composites: e.g. àèìòù etc., then if you later redesign the base glyph or the accent, the composites will update to match.
Also, aren't the files smaller with composites?
