To edit Chinese font with FontForge

Post by hudsonhock »

Hi all,

Is here a place where FontForge discussion can be carry out?

I am compiling a huge information with a Chinese font that having pinyin (Chinese words with the Latin alphabets based on their pronunciation) on its top. I am intend to use FontForge to give it a shot but I know nothing about font editing and was hoping to get some guidance from the experts.

No, we are not affiliated with FontForge or any other font editor, except our own FontCreator.

From what we understand, the original developer abandoned it in 2012. Other people have stepped in, but soon realized it is too complex to maintain, so it is not future proof. That said, you should be able to use it, but we don't know if it is stable enough for your needs.

This tutorial might help:
