If you go to Tools, Options, Validation, and select local validation instead of global, you will find a lot more validation errors in your fonts. I'm not sure if it will make any difference, but it is simple to fix all of these validation errors with the wizard.

I presume that you have read the Panose tutorial in the tutorials forum?

Panosing

Post by Dave Crosby » Tue Jan 01, 2008 12:37 pm

Hi Pia,

Perfect Panosing requires careful measuring and is hard work.

I prefer the spirit rather than the letter of the law.

What is the most eye catching attractive interesting aspect of the font?

2. Text is for standard serif and sans serif forms easily italicized.

3. Hand written is for flowing and non-flowing script where the tool type can be deduced. Brush, Felt Tip, Charcoal, engraved ...
To my mind, your fonts belong here.

4. Decorative is for those twos and threes that have been gussied up. Hollow, unusually tall or wide, picture backgrounds or stems and so on.

5. Symbol is for those that can't be used to make a normal sentence.

That first number is the biggest hurdle, and your decision.

Erwin is considering adding pictures in the next release to remind us what "Brush," Moderate Winding," and "Open Loops" is all about.

When in doubt, always go for the lowest reasonable number.
