New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Is it just on my side, but Typophile is extremely slow these days?
Internet Explorer and MS Word understand ligatures but a bug is causing them to display spaced out. IE10 displays ligatures correctly when new and degrades after updates. See the problem explained here
You like Futura, I like Formata. You like Univers, I like Avenir. You like what I don't like and I like what you don't like. So, let's call the whole thing off! We call it not letting the little things that bug us take us down.
in FL 5.1 when you generate a font whiteout copyright info (a beta version, for example) the new FL 5.1 will attribute your font to Adobe.
Adding this into your copyright: "Copyright 2012 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All rights reserved."
And this into your trademark: Please refer to the Copyright section for the font trademark attribution notices.
Also, in some case, it will "replace" your own copyright data.
The old FL 5.0 used to say "Generated in 2012 by FontLab Studio. Copyright info pending."
i'm building a font with a lot of alternative glyphs. i wrote a custom encoding file, with a list of alternative glyphs, each with a name suffix, e.g. Ccedilla.gt or Eogonek.ro.
however, when i select this encoding in the font window, in few cases, it shows the default glyphs in places where the alternatives should be. even when i actually create the alternative glyph, it still remains out of place. have anyone experienced this? does anyone know any solution?
Not too long ago Typophile added the useful ability to link to specific comments within threads. Clicking on the timestamp of any comment will produce the link.
I have noticed that this doesn't seem to work when the comment to be linked appears on a page beyond the first in a multi-page thread. The link doesn't insert the required "page=n&" into the address, so following the link just goes to the top of the first page of the thread.
not sure if any of fontlab developers are around, but please please …
when are you finally going to make an update?
last one you made an update was in 2007!
the actual version is hell of a buggy one, keeps crashing all the time!
come on people, do something!
I'm using Illustrator CS, though I also downloaded a trial of CS5 and this behavior is the same.
I have a brochure with columns of justified text 5" wide. I noticed that Illustrator wasn't breaking "multi-functional" on the hyphen and instead gave the previous line tons of word spacing. Testing with a new document, I can't get Illustrator to break on a hyphen, which seems baffling.
I don't want auto-hyphenation, but I tried turning it on and fiddling with its settings until it broke at the hyphen. Strangely, it then didn't justify the line ending with "multi-". Not good.
I also tried inserting a soft-return after "multi-" and again Illustrator didn't justify that line.
Anyone knows how to remove hundreds of random guidelines?
Is there any macro?, or something?
Thanks in advance!
