Half of the glyph not showing!!!

Post by GFares »

Hello,
When I was trying to test the font, I noticed that the half of the glyph is not showing, I could not figure out the problem.
These are the pictures from the software and Adobe InDesign.

It looks like another glyph to me. Can you send us the font project file along with some sample text?

I don't know why it fails; maybe the glyph outline is just too complex (read too wide). Other fonts seem to have a different approach, maybe that is a work-around. See Arial for example.

I can only repeat I don't know why it fails; maybe the glyph outline is just too complex (read too wide). Other fonts seem to have a different approach, maybe that is a work-around. See Arial for example.

You can also ask Adobe or Microsoft for help.

Hi,
The problem was in the file format. In some reason, the (.ttf) format works like charm. Is there an explanation for that?

I believe the PostScript format has tighter limitations.
