Re: Positioning of Anchors on Glyphs C and c

I have also noticed this. The positioning of anchors on some glyphs is not in an optimal position. This only happens with asymetrical glyphs but is especially noticable on 'C', 'G' and 'c', I guess estimating the optical centre is difficult. The diacritics over these glyphs look as though they are g...

Daniel Jacques

I have just put together a quick font which started out as a bet. Just one style (no italic or bold).

It is called 'Daniel Jaques'. It is a display font for titling and signage rather than body text.

Have fun ! :D

Yet another verification of Murphy's Law.
Hmm ... I did manage to reproduce what I had done, and with some improvements. But I must admit that I did curse the program at the time.

Re: Program Freeze

This is the first time I have had this happen with FC 12 but it has happened before on other versions, very intermittently and I was not able to reproduce it.

The only difference this time was the large number of unsaved changes. :(

[FIXED] Program Freeze

After making many unsaved changes to a font I am working on I did a simple union of contours and the program stopped (not responding), I thought it might be taking it's time so I left it for a while, enough time for me to go to the kitchen and make a cup of tea then return to the study. The program ...

Re: Auto Metrics and Anchors

You are correct, auto metrics does adjust the positions of the anchors when adjusting the side bearings of the glyph. I have just done another experiment. Sorry for posting this spurious request. :oops:

I am still coming to terms with all the differences in FC 12.

Re: Auto Metrics and Anchors

Auto Metrics adjusts side bearings but doesn't reposition anchors. Anchor positioning and anchor repositioning makes a good attempt at positioning the anchors and on the whole does a good job but gets some of them in positions which are close but not optimal. When they have been manually repositione...

Auto Metrics and Anchors

It would be nice if when Auto Metrics adjusts the left side bearing of a glyph it adjusted the positions of the Anchors by the same amount. For instance if it reduces the LSB of a particular glyph by 42 it then adds -42 to the positions of the anchors so they are in the same position relative to the...

Re: A question about the IJ digraph

Language changes slowly but continuously over time and adjacent languages affect each other. It is a continuous spectrum rather than distinct colours as words and ways of expressing onesself do not respect cultural or political borders. Also those who view a language from outside a culture have a di...

Re: A question about the IJ digraph

I have a question about these macinations with the IJ digraph being made acute.

Do they apply to Flemish as well as standard Dutch?

Multiple instances ?

Are there any problems which might be caused by having two instances of Font Creator running at the same time ? I have had two instances of Font Creator running at the same time with different font projects open in each and it caused no apparent problems but I just thought I would check just to be s...

Re: Munson

The Munson font has just been updated to version 2.0. This is a major update. It now has Cyrillic and Greek. Many more kerning pairs were added, more anchors and many more open type features. Erwin's masterful fraction code was used so it handles sophisticated fractions correctly. It was also fixed ...

Re: License suggestions?

And here in the USA, I've read commentary that embedding fonts into PDF's creates a problem when fonts are licensed with the GNU font. If a pdf has a GNU font embedded, I've read suggestions that the GNU license requires the entire project (here the PDF file, including the text) also be released un...

Re: Class sorting in Open Type Designer

Having sorted the glyphs with each base glyph followed by the composites that use it consistent positioning of anchors is now much easier, and I spotted some anomolies. It is worth doing, however I realised that if I had sorted the glyphs alphabetically in the main window before making the classes i...
