Version 1.000; ttfautohint (v1.5)

All fonts in a font family I just generated have this string in the font info:
Version 1.000; ttfautohint (v1.5).

How can I change it or leave only the version number?
I recall that in ttautohint the was a checkbox where one could uncheck this info.


This was true for TTF files.
All OTF files have this string:
Version 1.000;PS 001.000;hotconv 1.0.88;makeotf.lib2.5.64775

Same question - how to leave only the version number?

Try the versionString parameter in File > Font info > Instances. Read its entry in the Handbook appendix.

Sorry but in the appendix it says only this, but where do I change this string?

versionString string A placeholder string into which the version
number will be inserted automatically, e.g., ‘Version %d.%03d’,
where %d stands for an integer, and %03d for integer
represented with three digits, e.g., ‘008’. Will be used to overwrite
Name ID 5, the version string in the name table.

The appendix is explaining all custom parameters. This one would go into the font or the instance settings.

OK, so in the instance setting there is version string that reads:
–hinting-range-min=10 --hinting-range-max=24 --default-script=latn --fallback-script=latn --hinting-limit=50 --windows-compatibility

So where did this come from:
Version 1.000;PS 001.000;hotconv 1.0.88;makeotf.lib2.5.64775 ???

That is not a versionString but ttfautohintSettings.

Sorry, could you please direct me to the exact place to change that string?

  1. You open File > Font Info > Font.
  2. You click the (+) button above the Custom Parameters field.
  3. A new custom parameter appears. Change the Property to versionString (or pick it from the drop-down menu.
  4. Change the Value to Version %d.%03d
  5. Close the Font Info window and go to File > Export.

Great, thanks a lot. Still, 3 out of 4 TTF have a bad version string. All I did was copy one version string and pasted to all files

Can you send me the .glyphs file? To support (at) (this website without www), please. I will have a look.
