Double "/" bug

Forums: 

Hey there,

So... I've no idea why, but whenever I type "/" on my keyboard, when trying the font I'm designing, the slash doesn't appear. But then when I type "/" again, and it appears. So, every time I type "/" 2 times, only 1 "/" appears on my screen.

It happens in both FontLab preview and Illustrator. Any thoughts?

PS:
Sorry if somebody already posted this, I looked for another post with a solution but couldn't find anything.

Thanks!

Arabic web-font Mark feature bug in Safari

Hello,

I've stumbled upon a bug in Safari (and webkit browsers) when using the Mark feature in web fonts,
As demonstrated by the screenshot, when a word has diacritics either on the beginning or the ending, the word space gets omitted.

I've tried my own fonts, and multiples fonts by other vendors but i get the same result, Only fonts that implement the Mark feature display the error.
Is anyone else facing the same problem?

Tested on Safari 6.0.5/osx 10.8.5

Font Lab Bug: All your own fonts now belongs to Adobe!

Forums: 

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.
Not Good.

Also, in some case, it will "replace" your own copyright data.
Worst.

The old FL 5.0 used to say "Generated in 2012 by FontLab Studio. Copyright info pending."

FontLab custom encoding problem

Forums: 

hello folks,

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?

thanks!

Illustrator not breaking on hyphen

Forums: 

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.
