Re: Colored parts arent showing up.

Does your version of PhotoShop support colour fonts?

Colour Font Support may be better since this thread.

Re: Closing the "Class Manager" causes the selected table to be unfocused + resets opentype scroll.

I would be surprised if this is a bug. Even more surprised if it can be fixed easily if it is.

If you wish to narrow down focus in the kerning pairs list, type a search term in the field above the table. This search term is not lost after using the Class Manager.

Re: Petite Capitals script

Why do you need support for Ẽ and ẽ. These are included in Latin Extended Additional, to complete the character set and support Vietnamese, etc. Unless you're creating a font for Vietnamese use, you don't need all of these glyphs. If you want to support Vietnamese with Petite or Small Capitals, you ...

Version 3.32 fixed a few bugs with advance width for Greater Than, and Greater Than or Equal To glyphs.

Synchronise Widths of Tabular Figures Across Weights

Discussion on TypeDrawers In my Pali Font, for example, which have default tabular figures, I used the same 982 funits advance width for Regular and Italic, but a greater 1036 funits advance width for Bold and Bold Italics. Would be better practice to use 1036 for both? Or, would one only do this f...

Re: Override Range by Glyphname is not case-sensitive

Thank you. Some updates are needed for CompositeData.xml and Transform scripts in the process. Edit: I just updated the attachment to the last post Working With Transformations to remove a couple of glyphs from Fixed Width Figures, and changed the width from 1500 to 1024 funits, which is a more sens...

Re: Complete Composites

I have updated CompositeData.xml for Unicode 11.5 again to fix a few bugs and to make some minor improvements.

Please start a new thread in the support forum if you need any help on editing CompositeData.xml or have some suggestions for definitions to add or improve.

Transform Scripts Update

I attach an archive with a few new scripts and a few updated scripts.

Extract them to \AppData\Roaming\FontCreator\Transform\ and overwrite existing files if you wish.

Edit: Updated attachment with a couple more revised scripts.

Re: Petite Capitals script

I do not know how you can keep track of this interconnected tangle of glyphs and files. The truth is I don't. I just fix problems when I come across them. I usually cannot remember why I made a particular decision five years ago, or why I changed something two years later to improve it. It is bette...

Override Range by Glyphname is not case-sensitive

A script to select glyphs by glyphnames such as:

Code: Select all

Bhook, Chook, chook, Dhook, Khook, khook,
does not select all glyphs.

Only Bhook, Chook, Dhook, and Khook are selected.

Re: Petite Capitals script

Are there other settings which need changing in order to get this trick to work? It works for me. Not sure what is wrong at your end. I finally eliminated the "undefined" status of the Ẽ … and I think it was by adding both e's to the glyphlist.dat which did the trick. Ẽ and ẽ were defined for Latin...

Re: Petite Capitals script

Bhikkhu said: Accents over lowercase and Petite Capitals are not moved vertically. Perhaps a little ambiguity here. Prior to "complete composites" there are no "accents over lowercase", they have yet to be placed. ... PS In writing this, I think a relatively easy solution has occurred to me :idea: ...
