That works like a charm.

I was going to suggest that it would be useful for the rectangle and ellipse tools to be “sticky” if selected while holding shift. Then one could draw multiple rectangles or multiple ellipses without reselecting the tool each time.

Re: [FC14] Snap to Grid doesn't work

Snapping works fine when resizing or moving a rectangle, just not when drawing one. You could export your font and open the TTF in FontCreator 13, but there is a much more efficient method for creating pixel fonts than drawing each square or rectangle. Draw one square and resize it to the precise di...

Re: Font Creator 14 Updated version

The changelog will be updated in due course. I guess these interim releases are test versions, and are not publicly released until they are known to be working as expected.

Re: Cannot export TTF font with proper hinting

First, it turned out that, by the 14th version, FontCreator doesn’t allow for manually editing hints yet. I hesitate to ask this, but how are people supposed to develop fonts without hand-hinting where needed? Which font editing tool have you used before that allows for manual editing of hints? If ...

Re: Hide Unused fonts or Folders

Just uninstall them. MainType keeps them in its font vault so you can easily reinstall them if you need to. The System Fonts should not be uninstalled. Make a backup of your fonts using fmsconfig and keep it in a safe place. If size matter, e.g. on DropBox, compress the backup folder first using 7-Z...

Re: OTF Color Font Glyphs Showing Up Black

Your version has only one colour glyph member. You need two for a two-coloured font. Each colour is a layer. The layers can be re-ordered. See my tutorial on Multi-coloured Fonts.

Re: Font Creator 14 Composite issue

Complete Composites is not enabled yet in FontCreator 14. Use anchor-based composites instead. The Complete Composites data only exists for a limited range of characters. In Unicode there are tens of thousands of characters, most of which are undefined. This is a legacy feature from versions of Font...

Re: OTF Color Font Glyphs Showing Up Black

None of the glyphs have been colorized.

I attach my attempt. I am not sure why you need three members - two seem to do the job.

Re: Guide line

The position of the x-height line is determined by the top of the lowercase x glyph. Other lowercase glyphs may or may not align with the x-height. Typically, round contours will overshoot it.

Please clarify your question? Are you asking how to use MainType without a mouse, for example?

Re: Composite

Yes. This is a known issue. Anchor-based complete composites should work as expected.

What are you trying to do with the font? (Do read the copyright agreements before editing fonts, even free fonts).

You tell us nothing about what you did to get this error message.
