I have a font that I'm trying to create a TrueType version to use as a web font.
I have an idea of how to TrueType hint the font but I don't have the time or money to do so - the font will be largely for person use.
The font is hinted with Post Script hints, which I am very pleased with. I wanted to us FL to convert these PS hints to TT hints and then adjust any unresolved problems by hand.
From the PS hinted font I've ran this Action set:
- Curves to TrueType
- Contour Direction [TT]
- Convert to Instructions
On the whole I am pleased with the results apart from the alignment of the tops of the glyphs at certain weights.
Here is the uppercase at 15ppm's with PS outlines.
Here is the uppercase at 15ppm's with TT outlines.
I have imported the Type 1 alignment zones to the TT zones but they don't seem to have any effect on the alignment. If I have zones or not there is no change.
Is there anything I can do to improve or just change the top alignment of the glyphs or is it a question of hand hinting the whole thing ?
