FontForge - Generate Font

Mar 17, 2013 at 20:38


I've been creating a font using FontForge.

Spent the last two days kerning the hell out of the letters.

I've generated a TrueType font and begun to use it, but there are some glitches with characters clashing.

After looking back into the FontForge file these letters are not clashing and have a good kern.

Any ideas?

I can type with it not clashing in Linotype Font Explorer which is what I use as my font library.

It's InDesign and Illustrator that it clashes.

As you are on a Mac heaven knows what happens when you use a Linux thing to create a font. But why not put it somewhere so that we can have a look at it and see what is wrong.

Good Claude. Solve the problem. I am not going to install a fucking idiot thing like fontforge until it has a proper full install. And even then I probably won't.

No worries Koeiekat. Thanks for trying

Will hopefully send to Claude shortly.
