Hello every one,
I would like to Introduce a full video series consisting of 13 Part about how to make an Arabic font with the new method presented in FontCreator 13.
if you follow the right procedure you will get the right outcome, Major steps are:
  1. Prepare your glyph designs.
  2. Open new project and delete all Latin glyphs except first two.
  3. Insert formula (group 1).
  4. Insert your designs.
  5. Make anchors
  6. Insert formula (group 2) to get the composite glyphs.
  7. Insert isolated glyphs formula then copy and paste shapes from inside.
  8. Autometrics (bearings).
  9. Generate open layout features.
  10. Programming ligature glyphs by using code editor.
  11. Test font.
