In this little tutorial I'll try to explain how to edit your ripped fonts with FontLab Studio.
Many times when we download fonts from the forum are WF (WebFont),
but the user does not edit the names and we see a complete list in our programs.
In this tutorial we learn how to edit our ripped fonts to see this.
When we rip a font we can see two kind of files.
Many user share the ready files in format TTF with this symbol "☞"
and we need a serious font to work and not a big list of fonts in our softwares.
"Go with the tutorial"
Step1.- Open your files with FontLab Studio. Doesn't matter the kind of file (Python or TTF)
Step2.- After opening the file, open the Font Info dialog in the front file.
Step3.- In the "Version and Identification" press the auto button
Step4.-In the "Identification Settings" make the same (Press the button)
Step5.- Now we edit the name of the font. (Names and Copyright)
a - In "Family name" we put only the name. For example "Bloket Pro"
b - In "Weight" we select a style. Thin, Light, Normal, Medium, ExtraBold, etc.
If the the font it's italic, select "Font is italic"
c - Press the button "Build Style Name"
d - Press the button "Build Names"
Step6.- In the "OpenType-specific names" we just press the button "Build OpenTypes Names"
Note: In this part we can return to "Names and Copyright" and complete the name of the font with the style. With this we show a complete name in the final file (you can see the example to the end of the tutorial)
Step7.- Now we go to "Additional OpenType names" and press the button "Import Names" to complete the information in the font.
Press Apply and ok to save the changes and now we can save our edited font. Pressing Ctrl + Alt + G and selecting the format we are ready.
This is the difference, adding or not the name of each font
Is not necessary to complete the name but if you open a font you will see only the name, for exaple you'll always see Bloket Pro although you'll be viewing a ExtraBold style
Note: The styles "Regular" and "Normal" are the same, if you select one or other always will appear "Regular". In the case of "Book" style you will have to write the style though it appears in the list.
