Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

Thank you very much for your help Bhikkhu. It is much appreciated (and so fast).

I will take a look at the modifications at some point today.

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

Ok ... here is the latest iteration of Kelvinch Roman, the others (italic, bold and bold-italic) will follow as soon as they are finished, probably sometime next week. I have included the Welsh characters and a few others, I've erased the .null characters contours. I have decreased the size of the b...

Re: I want purchase font creator

I went for the Professional edition because I thought the extra features like 'Optical Metrics' would be useful. They were very very useful indeed, they save a LOT of time. Editing in general is faster and easier with Font Creator compared with Font Forge which I was using before, but the extras in ...

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

Dear Bhikkhu, I will have a look at putting some ligatures in the font and see what I can come up with. I tried to make the Panose numbers as accurate as possible based on the information on the Panose website and the number I came up with for Kelvinch Roman was 2-5-5-3-4-5-6-2-2-3 but if you compar...

Re: Kelvinch - a font for body text.

Dear William, Thank you for your praise. I also like venetian fonts, as for the digits, I first tried doing the digits old style with the ascenders going up to the 'CapHeight' and the descenders going to 'WinDescent' but it looked ridiculous, then I tried lining digits and that didn't look the way I...

Kelvinch - a font for body text.

I have been working on this font for some months. Although I have worked with many CAD systems throughout my career I have no previous experience with typography. I'm sure there are many mistakes and anomalies which I have missed and I'm not sure I have got the Panose numbers correct. Any constructi...

Re: Automatically add characters to a set

There is an interesting website at http://www.eki.ee/letter/ which tells you which letters are used in which languages. My solution to this problem was just to add everything. Once you have added Basic Latin, Latin-1 Supplement, Latin Extended-A, Latin Extended-B and Greek then you have covered most...

Open Type Designer

As a newcomer to Font Creator I can help but think that Open Type Designer needs better documentation. It is hardly covered in the manual. Most of what I know about it has come from the excellent forum posts in the Tutorials and Solutions section by Bhikkhu Pesala, thank you Bhikkhu. However I think...

Re: Synchronise Typefaces

I am currently developing a font which has Regular, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic. One of the problems I have found with synchronisation is that of ensuring that they all have the same character set. I have been through many times, I now have the regular and italic fonts pretty much synchronised but ...

Re: Xor of two contours.

I do not experience this problem, I am using Windows 7, 64 bit. However I tested a font created by Font Creator on a Windows XP machine at work and it did exhibit the problem. However this should not be an issue, for a simple glyph you should not overlap contours, if you are going to overlap contour...

Re: How to "support" a font I upload to a font website

If you wanted to include an E-mail address then why not set up a Gmail or Hotmail account specifically for this project. Then you can check the mail as often or as infrequently as you like and it would have nothing to do with your main E-mail account.

Re: Noob question about composite glyphs

Ogonek and Cedilla accents are meant to be overlapped. Ovelapping contours is bad for simple glyphs but for composites does it matter if the contours from different components of the composite overlap? Yes I could combine the two components of the composite, make it into a simple glyph and then do a...
