It is Windows and Microsoft applications that choke. Someone mentioned somewhere that he could not see the clipping problem someone was complaining about because he was on a Mac. Fonts that have that problem were probably done on a Mac and were not tested in Windows.

It is also very unfortunate that Fontlab default value for WinAscent and WinDescent is 0. What I notice is that even if the values of "TrueType specific metrics" are greyed and it is set to "Calculate values automatically" what values are already in there are still used by Fontlab.

Go to www.7-zip.org and select one of the two download links at the top depending whether you are using 32-bit or 64-bit Windows. If you do not know which one you are using, go to your desktop and right click on the Computer icon and select properties. Look for system type and that will tell you if you are using 32-bit or 64-bit. Select the appropriate download fo your Windows.



BTW the two links for the latest development/beta versions at the bottom are also fine as long as you get the version that is appropriate for your system.

That's good to know. I don't need one for Linux. Was just using it because it was free. Any recommendations for good starter programs other than Fontforge? I'm willing to pay, but don't wan't to spend hundreds.

Stay with FontForge. Once you get the hang of it, you will like it. Ask Claude. Just look at his fonts, those were done in FontForge. You can also make pretty fonts in FontForge, just like Claude, once you get to know the program better.

I do not think there is a font editor that can match FontForge at that price range ($0 - $0).


Jan 06, 2015 at 12:30  [reply]  Cannot download fonts

@ddcura, this is how I did it.

1. I downloaded the font from Dafont.
2. When the download was complete, I went to the folder where the download was saved.
3. I doubleclicked on the ZIP file and dragged erebor.ttf to the folder - meaning I extracted the font from the ZIP.
4. I doubleclicked on erebor.ttf and clicked on the "Install" button (circled in the image)
5. I opened MS Word, selected Cirth Erebor from the font menu, set the font size and typed the text

The font worked fine for me, did not encounter any problem and I am on Windows 7. See this



If you did the same way I did it and you still get the same result, you might want to answer the question of drf in message 11.

Now got to uninstall the font....



I agree with that! This is a proceed at your own risk.

It ain't fun to use goofy fonts in Chromebook



Maybe this will help http://tinyurl.com/n4ha6qg

Read the instructions very carefully and understand it fully before going ahead with it

BTW the instructions is for Series 5 and it might be the same for Series 3

Are you willing to finance my acquisition of a new car? If you are willing, here is a sample

http://abfonts.freehostia.com/k22-aking-didot.htm

If you need more samples, see here http://www.dafont.com/toto.d3205?fpp=50

or go to http://abfonts.freehostia.com click on the "Extra" tab, click on "Fonts List" link, click on the "Author" tab and scroll down the list till you find "Toto". There are fonts there that are not found here at Dafont

or you might want to have a look at http://typedrawers.com If you are going to sign up there, the board requires that you use your real name. If you are intereseted to get the services of someone from that board, that person will likely not come cheap.

Do not ask me how as I know nothing about this....


Dec 04, 2014 at 04:31  [reply]  disney used my font

I doubt if those are Disney products. Someone might have just gotten a right to use Frozen from Disney.

As for your font, how sure are you that the manufacturer of the shirt has not made a donation? I downloaded your font just now and did not see anything there aside from the font. They might have sent you a $1 dollar or a $1,000 donation, and that clears them of any liability. Target did not disclose the manufacturer so you do not have an idea who to look for among those who made a donation to you. If you think you were aggrieved by this and you are thinking of taking legal action, sue Target. On my part, I always ask who the end user is since it is most often that the agency is the one who contacts you and makes the donation on behalf of the end user.

If your intent is to make extra cash, I suggest you change Donationware to Free for personal use. To give you an idea of how much to ask, look at the end of this blog post

http://blog.daltonmaag.com/its-never-been-easier-to-use-our-fonts/

Although you can't ask as much as that for your fonts, you will have a very good idea on how much to ask for the commercial use of your fonts.


Nov 26, 2014 at 11:42  [reply]  fonts into windows live mail

Windows Live Mail is the Outlook Express of Windows 7 (probably Vista also), and you can use EOT in Outlook Express. See this for more info http://forum.fontlab.com/index.php?topic=4712.0 That info is also applicable to Windows Live Mail

Search for other references on the subject on the net. On how to create the EOT font, that page mentions WEFT which is a free download from Microsoft https://www.microsoft.com/typography/WEFT.mspx You can also use the free web font conversion services on the internet to create EOTs of your fonts.


Nov 08, 2014 at 03:44  [reply]  Candlescript "error found" message

I think that is more of a Fontlab bug. I see that very often and I just ignore it. The font works fine in Win XP and Win7.

The French version says font em-square while the English version says bbox size


Oct 31, 2014 at 04:44  [reply]  Futura with looser kerning for web?

For no modification of the font, try this

<style type="text/css">
.futura {font-family:Futura;letter-spacing:50px}
</style>

use the class on whatever you wanted in Futura with a wider letter spacing, like this

<span class="futura">FUTURA</span>

Change the value of letter spacing to what your prefer.

Your problem might have been caused by the settings used when you converted the desktop font to a webfont. Convert the font again and tell the site to retain the font's kerning, and see how it goes. You would not likely encounter that if you have a legal copy of the Futura webfont.

FontForge saves a backup of the backup? Lucky you, Claude.

That disappearing glyphs need to be taken cared of by the people who are developing the program. Has this been brought to their attention or discussed in a FontForge forum?


Oct 16, 2014 at 16:56  [reply]  FontForge 14 oct 2014

I hope it is not beyond recovery. The disappearing glyphs are probably still there and were moved to other glyph positions. I hope you find the missing glyphs and find a fix to that because I like the swishy font that you are doing. Looking forward to the day it is released.


Oct 16, 2014 at 14:09  [reply]  CSS script for fonts

I suggest you ditch that "Welcome to my site!" It makes the site look cheap.


Oct 16, 2014 at 06:16  [reply]  FontForge 14 oct 2014

Can I see a sample, Claude?


Oct 16, 2014 at 06:10  [reply]  CSS script for fonts

Then what seems to be the problem? You seem to be complaining about the non-rendering of the font. I see the same thing as daaams and koeiekat saw. I do not have the font installed. I do not install fonts other those that were bundled with Windows and programs installed in my PC.



I suggest you enclose in quotes Jenna Sue in "@font-face { font-family: Jenna Sue; ...." and include the woff version of the webfont.

I suggest that you go to the Jenna Sue font page and click on the "Donate" button on that page, especially if you are doing the webpage for a fee. It is a way of thanking her for digitizing the font.


Oct 15, 2014 at 17:31  [reply]  CSS script for fonts

Send me your real CSS to to22to at gmail dot com or better the URL of the page where the font is used.


Oct 15, 2014 at 16:06  [reply]  CSS script for fonts

If your @font-face declarations in your real CSS appear exactly like the ones you posted, I am not surprised why the font does not show. You enclosed your @font-face in /* and */. That is the cause of all your problem because that tells the browser to ignore everything between /* and */. That means you do not have a declared @font-face and will rely on the visitor having the font installed, which will likely not be the case. The only working CSS declaration there is the first h1.title

Suggestions: Use a full path, like your http://www.mysite.com/New1/fonts/jennasue.woff to be avoid complications. Also use all lowercase folder and file names to avoid problems in case your webserver is case sensitive. I strongly suggest that you look for a CSS validator and check your CSS for errors there.
