WOFF 2.0 support

Post by wendoor » Sun Oct 19, 2014 9:08 pm

With WOFF 2.0 (woff2 - a new web font compression format) already enabled
in Chrome, Opera and Firefox - can we expect FontCreator 8 support soon ?

I don't think you can expect support very soon. As far as I can tell, it is still just a proposal under evaluation.

I am just a user, but I suppose that High-Logic will implement it later when it's an accepted standard.

We do keep an eye on this, but we have no plans to add support for WOFF2 for the short term.

Re: WOFF 2.0 support Alternate Sugestion

Hi Everyone,
I wanted to run this idea by folks, and hoping for some input on this idea. Everything is always made better with collaboration. :D

I too have many fonts in varying formats, including the above and svg.

I used to keep these all separate, then combined them to remove duplicates of the ttf's. What I was hoping for was a simple search and mark. Something like and an upper bound cross, for woff, two for woff2 and maybe a seperate symbol that could mark the font folder as containing an svg file.
In all cases the ttf is likely already present and viewable, I know of no instance where a person could have the one without the other, legally speaking.
So the fact there are more versions of the same file would be redundant on system resources to graphically view the font itself. But if those small small markings or similar item could be appended to the font name in the display, then it would be a simple concise search for people to find the type of font required.
