I’m doing some testing with an Arabic variable font, but running into two problems:
The rtl support in Adobe apps stops working when exporting a GX font. It was working with regular otf’s.
I’ve added a virtual master for some glyphs that have a horizontally extended version. That works, only the vocalization marks don’t move along with anchors. They stay in position as opposed to following the anchors of the extending of the glyph.
Okay, so I have two apps of Glyphs installed. One is for stable release updates, and the other for Cutting Edge versions. It’s been a while since I used the CE version, but now it asks me to update to the latest stable release. How can I update that app to the latest CE version?
Schmal > I have read that, but it show basically the same as reply above and a request to email you to work together? Still don’t know how that relates to my initial questions.
@ Well! Have I confused Variable Arabic fonts with Dynamic Arabic fonts?
Have you joined https://telegram.org/ and explored the files there Telegram: Contact @FonJawi ?
Selecting and attaching QB-English.pdf from there, hope it helps in developing variable (dynamic) Arabic fonts. QB-English.pdf (187.3 KB)
Any how, the choice is yours if you are not willing to work together.
Hey! I am working on a Hebrew font with some horizontally extended alternatives. But I am a total newbie and don’t understand this program at all. Is there a way to define the alternative such that it will be substituted based on the spacing and justification? I am sorry this is only mildly related… thanks!
