Problem with Vertical Writing

Post by yucong » Fri Sep 18, 2015 5:11 am

hello,

I'm a new font designer with Fontcreator. I'm Chinese.

When I created a CJK font, I met a problem about CJK fonts that are intended to be used for vertical writing, the punctuation can't change direction.

What can I do to solve this problem.thank you so much and I'm waiting for your answer eagerly.

I moved your question to the FontCreator forum, where I think it belongs.

I have no experience with creating CJK fonts, so this advice may be wrong.

Try calculating the Ranges and Code Pages in Font Properties, Ranges. Click the Edit button for the ranges to see if the CJK punctuation range is enabled. If it is not, there may be no CJK punctuation glyphs in the font.

Do you know other fonts that work?

For example has BabelStone Han the same issue concerning vertical writing?

And what about SimSun (宋体)?
