Yes, I was trying to save a font with bad metrics but the software was crushed.
I never save the fonts in TrueType format, I just wanted to try it with this specific font with problems.
i can't seem to change the version name and i keep getting a really weird long wp ripping name on the version even though i've followed your steps.
no, that line is not the problem. it's the "version" line that has all the weird names and characters. Here is an example
Version 1.000;com.myfonts.gaslight.blooming.deco.wfkit2.3 Rfp
when i delete this string on the version form field in studio 5 it just comes back.
so i figured it out.
go to "Additional Open Type Names" in Fontlab Studio 5. generate the FI in Non-English or special font names by clicking the little arrow down. scroll down to both version lines and delete everything after the version number in the bottom dialog box, then click apply. make sure you do it for both version line items.
that's it. LOVE THIS TEAMWORK. PrintRoot and it's members ROCK!!
Helpful tutorial, thanks
I found this software here:
It's the real deal.
If you want it, dowload quickly!
It is a fantastic software!
I prefer FontLab Studio ...
it's more easy and faster !!
I'm having problems with the Mrs Lollipop font I have downloaded here. I have PM'ed some of the members for help and I'll post it here, too.
Font Book keeps saying Mrs Lollipop has duplicates.
I cleared my font caches, installed Suitcase Fusion, and still no good. (Btw, thank you wordnerd!)
I think, from what I have read in this forum, the internal/core/PostScript names of the styles of Mrs Lollipop are the same that's why Font Book is saying it has duplicates. It's a dot. See screenshot:
Now from what I learned in this very helpful thread, I need to edit those core names and see if that will solve my problem :)
I've searched this place for links to download FontLab and OTMaster by samiartur, but sadly they are PC versions (I'm using a Mac), have dead links, or is posted in a section of this forum which I cannot access. I hope someone can help me with this :)
> Samiartur keeps saying that DTL OTmaster only changes the name without doing anything to the rest of the font. I like this feature. But can OTmaster also do stuff in DJ.Dance's tutorial, like group all styles of the font so that it shows as 1 font family?
> Is FontLab worth it to install for someone like me who will probably use it once for Mrs Lollipop font and nothing more? :)
> Fontforge is free, I heard, but can this do what FontLab can do? :)
> Do I need to post a request for FontLab for Mac on a separate thread?
Hoping to hear from all the font experts in this lovely forum! :) THANKS!!!

Ok, here's an update.
I found this: http://www.printroot.com/forum/f24/fontlab-studio-5-mac-18547/
I followed every step in this tutorial, and my Mrs Lollipop font is now working!
Congratulations man !!!
I'll do a post with some font tools too.
What's the difference between "Compiled" and "Binary" in saving an otf?
