I’ve exported my font family, which works fine in OSX, but when I try to install in WIndows, I get a dialog that says it’s an invalid font file. My friend Judy Aasen-Safren suggested there was something wrong with the table, and suggested Font Chef, but I have no idea how to use it or the older font validator. I don’t even know what a font table is. Can you help a n00b?
You can try running
Update Glyph Info from the
Font Chef as in https://www.trademarkia.com/font-chef-78433450.html?
Inside the font file, all information is organized and stored in tables. Each table has a name and a four-letter tag. And each table has special requirements. More info: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Typography/OpenTypeSpecification.aspx
Windows may audit some info in some tables to decide whether the font is OK or not.
Download Font Validator 2.1.1:
Run the tests, look for the (red) errors.
