New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hello everyone. I'm having problems generating a TTF file with Fontographer 5.2 (win8). The system's file preview shows the gliphs distorted and the uploaded font to dafont.com seems deformed. This doesn't happen when I generate a OTF. You can see what I mean in the next images.
Does anyone know whats going on?
Thanks in advance!
I have a font that does not come in bold - for designs I just used a stroke to make it bolder. Is it possible to edit the file and re-save it with a stroke? If, so what is the easiest way of doing this?
I’ve experience a quite fuzzy thing: Exporting a font two times from FontLab, no known changes in the output settings.
The 1. font is the red text below, the 2. is the white text.
The only thing that was changed in between the 2. font-exports was the numbers (0 – 9) and the punctuation (,.;!?“”…) not displayed here.
It appears to be that now the Bitmaps are not the same anymore (especially the horizontal stems in a, e, s and h in the attached 300% example).
Anti-aliasing method is set to sharp in Photoshop, but this it seems has nothing to do with the different jittering in the result.
Any help or hint is highly appreciated!
I'm designing a display face in Fontlab, and I'm only creating uppercase letters. I planned on finishing the uppercase letters (metric and kerning included) and then just copy them to the lowercase letter spots so the same A shows up whether you type a or A.
However, it doesn't seem like metric and kerning data gets included when I copy and paste letters. I don't know much about Fontlab, but I would've thought I could somehow copy this data. Any ideas?

When using this typeface, bigger is better ;)

I was recently contacted by someone asking if they can use a font I created for commercial use (the font is freely available for personal use). I'd like to get some money out of this if it's a possibility. How do I proceed from here?
I'm trying to generate a font so I can layout a decent proofing sheet. Two problems:
I am able to generate a Win TrueType/OpenType TT file, but when I try OpenType PS, it gives me this message: "ERROR: There was a problem while compiling OpenType font. Final .otf font is not saved. Please, check OpenType features definition for errors." Does anyone know what this is referring to? I looked through the fonts features panel, but didn't see any red flags. Feel like I'm missing something on how to preflight these files before generating.
I made my own font in Fontographer 5.1 and "luckily" downloaded FogLamp Demo version and converted font to TTF and installed.I opened Adobe Illustrator,typed few letters and I see these strange discolorations on some characters;watermarks.After I figured out this information,I tried to search for full version of FogLamp on torrentman.com,but nothing was there;so I googled and all you can find is demo version. Does anyone know,where to find any converter that converts FOG files(.fog) without leaving watermarks(possibly full version for free)? Thanks for a lot!
I'm trying to convert a collection of Windows Postscript files to OTF on OSX. For that, I decided to go with Fontforge because I can batch-process them with scripts in the terminal. I know little bash-scripting and no Python, but have been able to modify a script on the Fontforge site to do this: http://fontforge.sourceforge.net/scripting-tutorial.html
Has anyone experienced FontLab generating a font where the kern classes differ from the source VFB? I'm completely stumped as to why this is happening or how to get around it. I suppose I could use TTX or FontForge to replace the kern classes but I can't help wondering if this is a known bug, maybe FL needs a reinstall or perhaps I've overlooked something. Any insight would be appreciated.
Does anyone have any tips on creating TTF files for @font-face usage? I have a script going in fontforge to generate all the basic formats for online (ttf,eot,woff,svg) but my one issue is how to get the TTF into a protected format. I have seen people export the TTF before where you cannot just open it locally, or install it. I know its not 100% bullet proof, but I am just curious does anyone know how to do this, preferably in fontforge?
I've downloaded some free Japanese fonts and want to use them in programs like Illustrator or InDesign. They come as .ttf for Windows and .suit for OS X. Neither have displayed anything but rectangles in Adobe or word processors. On both operating systems, the fonts seem properly installed but they don't work with the Japanese text I copy and paste in.
The Japanese fonts which appear to have been preloaded on my system work fine, so i know I can display Japanese but no other fonts i acquire work.
* Has anyone had any problems using the Small Caps feature in an Open Type font purchase?
* Has anyone had problems using Open Type in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint or Excel?
I'm working on a project for a client in which I'm rebranding their marketing materials. I'm using Gill Sans Small Caps for headings and Gill Sans Roman, italic bold etc. I use both a Mac and PC. The client uses a PC.
I have a TTF font that I want to convert to .SFT (to be installed on the flash of HP printers).
Can anyone help?
Hi, can anyone point me to some online resources that will help me with hinting? I want to know the specifics of the process for FontLab 5, since the Fontlab manual is not especially helpful to me. In particular, I want to know if–when generating PS flavoured OT fonts–there's anything I can do to adjust the hinting on individual glyphs. But I am also interested in the process of hinting for TT flavoured OT fonts
I already know the basics, I am just finding it difficult to take the step with hinting towards a more professional approach than the Auto-settings in FontLab.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

I am a newborn in the world of type design.
I'm using FontLab for the first time to design my own typeface.
When I 'Generate Font' fontlab adds nodes to all my curves. This causes visible waves in my curves when printed large format (tabloid). I have attached two files that I created in Illustrator to demonstrate what I mean, one using glyphs from my ttf file, the other contains the glyphs I drew myself.
How can I avoid this, I see this as a major issue.
Thanks for your help,
