Try to use absolute path, like
url( format('woff')

Remove spaces from font name.

Feb 23, 2015 at 19:25  [reply]  Fonts not kerning properly in Photoshop

I use FontForge,
but in FontLab, according this link:

[...] In addition to the feature descriptions in the OpenType panel, in FLS 5.1 you must include a list of all languagesystems that your features are using.
You should enter this list in the lower-right portion of the OpenType panel.

For a typical Latin-based font, your lower-right portion of the OpenType panel should say:

languagesystem DFLT dflt;
languagesystem latn dflt;

OpenType GPOS 'kern' feature in font Sweet Pea is set only for script DFLT{dflt} (script default - language default).
I suggest to set this feature for DFLT{dflt}, latn{dflt} (script default - language default, script latin - language default).

Feb 09, 2015 at 09:08  [reply]  How to: font with syllabary glyphs?

Most probably, You forget about lookup definition.

It should look like:

script latn { feature LigaFeature; }
feature LigaFeature liga { lookup LigaLookup; }
lookup LigaLookup {
sub b a -> b_a;

Feb 02, 2015 at 22:30  [reply]  Ligatures don't work

Most probably, font from Bitstream have no built-in OpenType 'liga' table.

koeiekat said  
... Ascender and descender ... shall be set so that they are at least equal to the highest/lowest position of the glyph ... including accents.... sum of ascender and descender should preferably be equal to the units per em

??? then what with for example ĥ (hcaron) or ĺ (lacute)?

It's more complicated, as scaling down all glyphs in font, because You add support for Slovakian or Esperanto...

@koeikat - Problem is more complicated.

Microsoft standard (from ):
[...] WinAscent is computed as the yMax for all characters in the Windows ANSI character set.[...]

and from FontForge Manual (

[...] The Windows Ascent and Descent fields are badly defined in the OpenType spec, which says that they should express the maximum range of the Windows "ANSI" glyphs. If one uses this definition, non-"ANSI" glyphs are cropped. These should be the maximum range of all glyphs to avoid cropping. [...]

Aug 06, 2013 at 19:28  [reply]  Znikomit font

You need Software with OpenType Support,
then You need to turn on "Stylistic Set 03" and type 1Znikomit2
You can test it on my Online preview:

Or, if your Software don't work with OpenType features,
You can download "the curls" from Znikomit StylisticSet03 as separate font (

Font Znikomit (and ZnikomitNo24) include two Kerning Tables:
- old style 'kern' table
- new OpenType 'kern' table
I made so, because some Programs still don't work with new OpenType table.
I test this Solution at Windows and Linux, and it work without problems.
In my own Opinion it's not
"Serious problem [...] may cause system problems or even crashes".

I made Znikomit version for Macintosh, without old style 'kern' table.
Message about problems should not appear,
but You have to check whether Kerning is working properly in Your Program.

Font Znikomit for Macintosh in is available on my site:

Jul 08, 2013 at 20:30  [reply]  troubles generating font files

Have You tried to make postscript OTF file?
Integer values for nodes are necessary for truetype TTF fonts.
I have no Idea how it look in Fontographer or FontLab, but in FontForge You can generate postscript OTF font
with non integer values for nodes.

To avoid uninteresting connection "ng" in "Cooking",
You can use Contextual Alternates.
If your Software don't support OpenType Contextual Alternates,
You can use Online Preview here:
and download .png Image or .pdf vector file ready for your work.
