1. You want to change the font name, but You don’t know-how. What is the solution?
The font name is stored inside the font, so changing the file name won’t work. To change the font name, go to Font Properties dialog. From there select the Identification tab, which allows you to change the font name. Then export the font.
2. Why don’t quotation marks work in Microsoft Word?
Word-processors often use autocorrect to convert the straight apostrophe (‘) and straight quote or inches character (“) to typographical quotation marks (“), (”), (‘) and (’), also known as smart or curly quotes. If your font doesn’t have mappings to these characters, you will see rectangles instead. When the quotes aren’t showing at all, you need to add outlines to the corresponding glyphs.
3. Your font only looks good at large sizes, what can I do to improve the quality at small sizes?
The quality has a lot to do with hinting. The hints are what makes a font look good at low resolutions. It can automatically add hinting information to your TrueType based fonts. Another solution is to enable smoothing which is available from the Font Properties dialog.
4. What is a Symbol font?
Symbol fonts are special fonts, that should only include symbols, signs, signatures, pictures, decorations, arrows, and bullets. Symbol fonts do not form words so line breaks can occur after any character code. Most spell checkers don’t check symbol font-formatted content. There are Symbol fonts on the market that contain (Latin) characters. Such fonts do cause problems as explained above (e.g. wrong line breaks and no spell-checking). In such a case you should contact the font vendor.
5. Can FontCreator be used to create fonts for languages like Hebrew, Syriac or Arabic?
Yes, It provides you with all the tools needed to create these fonts including a graphical designer to create even the most complex glyph positioning required for these languages.
6. Is FontCreator available for a Mac?
No, the font editor runs on Windows only. However, fonts created with this software can be used on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and in all modern web browsers.
7. Is it legal to modify a commercial font?
Several font vendors do allow this, as long as the modified font is only used on machines for which you have licensed the original font. If you have questions about what can or can’t be done with a font, you should contact the font’s manufacturer.
