Word

Hi guys,

I've created a client font that has some manually added ligatures. It works fine on Apple, because OpenType does the work for me. But can I get these ligatures to work in Microsoft Word? They're not mapped to any key on the keyboard, so how can I access them? I'm making a small manual for the client how to use the font. If this means I have to map these extra ligatures to some keys, this is fine with me.

Can anyone help me out here?

We work with packaging for many countries and has to deal with many languages, many we don't read and with alphabets we don't recognize. To control this we use software to control that the unicode values are the same in input (text in Word documents) and output (pdf generated from QuarkXpress) We are now struggling with differences in input & output for accented characters in Vietnamese text. So I wonder if the accented characters in Word can be the input (the characters you type) and not the result (the accented character)
Or is there an other explanation of the different unicode values for the same character? (the visual character is correct, this is verified by vietnamese)

I've been working with Lunatix Bold recently. It has all the accents and special characters I need.
However, when I'm writing something in Photoshop, it doesn't support certain characters, such as ¡, ¿, Ñ and the acute accented vowels (to be precise, it doesn't accept anything that is not the standard English set of characters). Then I write the text, using the same font, in Word. It's fine. I copy-paste the text into Photoshop... and it's fine!

Does anyone know why this happens? If this helps, I use FontCreator 5.6 to view the characters, and all non-standard characters are blue (the standard are green or sometimes red).

Arrows

Hi, Typophilers,

I use mac and word 2011. Sometimes I place directional arrows into word documents to indicate direction or flow and was wondering. In the fonts I am using, I can see that they have encodings for the following:

U+2190 arrowleft
U+2191 arrowup
U+2192 arrowright
U+2193 arrowdown
U+2196 arrowupleft
U+2197 arrowupright
U+2198 arrowdownright and
U+2199 arrowdownleft

Hello,

After generating my font I try it in MS Word and all of descenders and ascenders of font are cut off.
This strange effect have place in big sizes as 72pt etc.
As I understand the problem goes to font info but... settings is standart. Maybe the cause is font unicase and something wrong with value of Cap-height or x-height?..

Best regards,
R.


What is the name for a glyph which contains a full word?
I am looking for typefaces which contain glyphs that are complete words - like "THE" or "AND".
It's hard to search for these because I don't know the term. And searching for "and glyph" really ain't working.

what is the differences and similarity between those words?

For some reason in Illustrator I'm getting a giant cursor where text is added to the top. If you look at the picture you'll see the black portion is highlighted text. Despite the huge cursor the leading appears to be perfectly fine.

I'm not sure if this is related, but the ttf is cut off in MS Word and I'm assuming my vertical metrics are off...which is at least one of my problems if not both.

And for my dimensions:

Asc: 590
Des: -287
UPM: 1000

I've read the numerous articles about vertical metrics but something must still be off. Based on these values can anyone lend a hand on my OS/2 and hhea?
