Re: Descriptive Names for Stylistic Sets

BTW, I don't know how many applications support this yet. My ID CS6 was produced before 1.6 was introduced and the only ID I am renting on an as-needed basis is ID2015 (one client who doesn't want to update their plug-ins) so I haven't/cannot check the newer versions until I need to rent ID again. I...

Re: Descriptive Names for Stylistic Sets

Hello Kevin, Yes it works, but the syntax between FL & FC are different. Easiest means to do the names is via the "Feature Parameters" dialog accessed by selecting any Stylistic Set at its main level. So... capture-001378.png The syntax if editing the code is: ... feature "German Double S"; ... feat...

Re: Kerning not Consistent

Hah. I was out in the backyard picking tomatoes and felt a slap, so I had to come in to see Erwin's response...

The font I (more or less) remember this happening with must have had a second lookup.

Thanks, Erwin.

Re: Kerning not Consistent

I've seen that before, but forget what the issue is. [conjecture] It strikes me that the top right portion uses the bearings explicitly for display. When the lsb isn't at zero this happens. I think. It has been a while since I last saw it happen and the memory is a bit fuzzy. [/conjecture] Hopefully...

Re: Mass kerning of second glyph in a pair

Hi Jonne, Still not really clear. But as I mentioned, I use a spreadsheet. I copy all the kern code between the opening/closing brackets, paste into a text editor, do a mass find/replace for spaces and replace with tabs. Once done, I paste into a new spreadsheet and sort, in this case, column C in t...

Re: Ligatures don's show up in PDF

I'm using Word 2010 and without rlig. But the std. ligs, hlig and dligs all show up in a PDF, whether I use Word's crappy in-built PDF save as routine or Acrobat's plug-in. W2010 I think was the first version to support ligs, but I don't know if it supports rligs. If I get time I can roll in an rlig...

Hi Erwin,

donʼt recall if I already thanked you for the inclusion of the “Replace Glyph” command in the pop‑up menu. If I did, hereʼs a double thankyou. Very practical, saved me tons of work.

Regards,
Typewhisperer
Yep. I also find it very useful.

Re: Just a thanks...

There's only one thing that would make it even better, but there is a work-around. What is that "one thing?" (and what is the workaround?) Re-enabling the ability to preview init, medi and fina features in the OT Designer. Work arounds included temp exporting of a font in progress, which really did...

Microsoft is aware of the issue and supposedly there will be a fix in the fall update.

Re: Opening the projects in the same order

Once upon a time, I used an .ini file to keep track of the tab order on a programming project. (I also could not manually rearrange the tabs, though.) It was important for the person using the application to open the files one at a time and then save the project as an .ini file. What I did have, tho...

Re: Autometrics

I don't want Auto Metrics to run on everything. That's the point.

I think a tag to skip what Auto Kern runs against would fit the bill.

Re: Mass kerning of second glyph in a pair

I'm not envisioning what you are doing and so have no real idea of what it is to accomplish... That said, I often enough copy the kerning code sans the opening/closing code, paste it into a decent text editor, replace the spaces with a tab, then copy and paste into Excel where each part is in its ow...

Re: Autometrics

Which, in a fuller font, isn't enough...so I'll keep tagging, switching to the tag, highlighting those glyphs, copying and pasting. There are pre-composed fractions, pnum, tnum, sups/denoms, etc., to deal with. So because FC would only logically consider the 0–9 digits, you might want to save yourse...
