Re: Creating a font for a book I am publishing

You could use Inkscape to create .SVG versions of the glyphs and embed those in your book. SVG is scalable.

Or you could supply a friendly creator of free fonts with the drawings of your glyphs to embed in one of his free fonts.

Question about Smoothing

I have a question about smoothing in Font Creator. When I go to the Smoothing section of font properties and press the ' Generate ' button it comes up with an arbitrary set of numbers and with smoothing for both standard and clear type. I was wondering how these numbers are arrived at and if the ' t...

Re: Union of curves

Sorry I wasn't much help. It may seem like a lot of work but you could get the program to log errors like this either in the project file or in a separate log file stored somewhere. Then when the program generates an error message it would log the error along with any diagnostic information you thin...

Re: Union of curves

I have attached the font file but I don't know how useful it will be to you. It has been modified and saved many times since that error occurred. The error seems to happen infrequently and randomly. Sometimes it is the illegal midpoint call, sometimes the program just says this is too complex and do...

Re: Bainsley

I probably could have made it smaller but this is the file I uploaded to the ' Local Fonts ' website. It has to be comprehensive because most people who download it won't have a font editor and so won't be able to covert a .OTF file into a webfont. The project files are for anyone with Font Creator ...

Re: Bainsley

What was the difficulty ? Local Fonts is a site which sells fonts but I can become a vendor and set the price to zero but you still have to go through the process of 'buying' the font for a price of £0.0, the owner of the site says he does nothing with all the information he collects but I'm not sur...

Bainsley

Well folks, it's finally here. This font has been delayed too long. It should have been finished early last year but 2020 didn't exactly go according to plan and a lot of other stuff happened which brought home the fact that font design is pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things. But I'm ...

Armenian Preview

If anyone is interested in spacing the Armenian alphabet I have attached the current preview text I am using. The Armenian is at the end.

Re: Import of .VFB files

It isn't a big issue we are almost done and the Armenian characters are looking legible and comfortable to read by an Armenian. .TTF files did the job.

Re: Import of .VFB files

The zip file is on it's way to your customer support e-mail. It is a zip file containing the folder which was generated by the UFO export.

Re: Import of .VFB files

I can't help you with that. Font Creator created a folder with sub folders and files, I packed this into a .ZIP file, attached it to an e-mail and sent it. Ruben's response was " Sorry Paul, I was unable to open the UFO files. I tried to use converter, but it the could not be installed. " ...

Re: Import of .VFB files

The UFO file took a long time to export, the size was enormous and then when I sent it to him he couldn't import it ! :(

I think we will stick to exchanging .TTF files.

Import of .VFB files

I am currently collaborating with someone in Armenia on the Armenian character set for my latest font 'Bainsley'. His font editor produces .VFB files which I cannot import into Font Creator so we have to exchange fonts via .TTF or .OTF files. It may be an idea for a future version of Font Creator to...
