Include Full Font Name:

"Skt GoudyOldStyleBT Bold Italic" = 31 characters :?:

The Font Family name is "Skt GoudyOldStyleBT" which is much less.

I renamed them all again, this time to: Skt GoudyOldStyle This worked fine, so it seems that it could be a problem with the length of the name. One final test to add the BT back in again. Confirmed "Font Skt GoudyOldStyleBT Bold Italic can't be found - Text will be output as curves" Apparently a nam...

I'm still baffled by this. I'm producing the PDF from Serif Page Plus 9. I can change the font for the whole document easily with select all without changing the typestyles - bold, italic, bold-italic, etc. Times New Roman worked fine. Skt Palermo worked fine Skt Garland worked fine Skt GoudyOldStyl...

In the end I changed every occurence of bold-italic in my document to bold, but this is not a solution that I would recommend.

Problem with PDF Output

When I produce a PDF, I get this error message "Font Skt Goudy Old Style BT with style Bold, Italic can't be found - Text will be output as curves." The font is definitely installed. I have edited the fonts again, using autorenaming to ensure that all the names match correctly. I checked the Unicode...

Topic: Is zero-width enough to specify a diacritic?
Replies: 4
Views: 4510

If the diacritic is just zero width, Word should put it in the same position as the next character. To overlay the previous character you also need a negative left side-bearing. The advantage of creating composites is that you can define the precise position of the diacritic. Sometimes one may find ...

Assuming that you always and only want to use the alternate y after certain letters. the right way is to use Open Type features, which are not included in Font Creator. A work around that may satisfy your needs would be to assign the alternate y to ý or ÿ then select the International US keyboard an...

It sounds like our old friend, Auto-mistake. In Word and Corel Draw too, if you type an apostrophe (ANSI 039) it converts it to single quote, and " become “ or ” . If you haven't designed those characters in your font they will show up as nul characters, usually rectangles. Turn off Autocorrect to s...

There are no limitations to the trial version. Try saving the font with a new name before installing it. If it is still not recognised, try rebooting.

Most problems are caused by incorrect mapping. If you have just modified existing characters in a standard font, this should not be a problem.
