Runic unicode block and bearings
Posted: Fri Nov 02, 2018 12:22 pm
I am working on a runic font (just because I can). Accordingly I have been working on the Unicode Runic block, filling it with the requisite images. So far so good. Some of these I have copied into the Latin mappings so that the font may be used as a normal font. Again, so far so good. The problem I have is that while FontCreator seems happy to calculate bearings for those glyphs contained in the Latin field, it completely ignores those glyphs in the Unicode runic block. Have I missed something? or is this the norm? Does FontCreator regard the runic block as a symbol block and therefore require the bearings to be set manually?
