Your English is fine. Better than my... well, anything else.  :)

See this article for more info on TTX, why you might want to use it, and how to install it and related pieces.

Reinstalling won't help in this case. Since the above message is just a warning and the font is generated properly you can simply ignore this warning. Another option is to create the .fea file with OpenType features code and give it to FOG for compilation during font export.

Thanks, I see no options under font generation for compiling .fea, so I don't think i've done this. My client uses a Unix system for production purposes. If this is a bug, is there an easy way to reinstall?

If you do not intentionally ask FOG to compile the fea file (which should contain that language system statement) then this sounds like a bug. Do you? And what is the reason to generate Unix ttf? If you are going to use it in Mac OS then better choose Crossplatform.

Fog 5.2.3 Mac, Build 4868

[WARNING] <Font Name> [internal] Feature block seen before any language system statement.  You should place languagesystem statements before any feature definition

I get this when trying to generate a Unix .ttf font file from a new font I built. Any suggestions?

Did You download and extract the microsoft Font Tools?

If yes, put your font and DSIG.DAT in the fonttools\Addtable directory.

Ex: a font named "dummy.ttf"

Go to the promt command

C:   (or D: or E: It depends which drive You have instaled the fonttools)
cd\ (enter)
cd\fonttools\Addtable (enter)
addtable DSIG DSIG.dat dummy.ttf dummynew.ttf (enter)

When building a new font, after finishing all the characters I use the auto space feature, then auto kern. Then spend a bunch of time manually checking all the kerning pairs and fine tuning. At the end, I have a huge kerning table. When I'm done, some characters have identical kerning adjustments for multiple pairings that could be eliminated if the character spacing was readjusted.

1) I wish there was a way for Fog to automatically evaluate the final kerning and optimize the spacing of all charters to reduce the overall number of kerning pairs.

2) Seems like there should also be some templates for standard spacing/kerning that could be implemented as a first step that would be more accurately adjusted to a Roman, Italic, Sans, etc.

3) Template for Metrics and Kerning assistance also. After all these years I still get confused over these tables. Some times they work for me sometimes they don't. I probably don't have them set up correctly. Why can't there be some standard options here?

Bearing in mind I know nothing of this kind of programming language, it would be helpful to have exactly correct syntax for this process.

Download my attachment (DSIG.zip)
DONE

extract the file in zip (DSIG.DAT)
DONE

There is a command line "AddTable"
MEANS NOTHING TO ME SINCE I CANNOT VIEW THE DSIG.DAT FILE.
DO I ASSUME THAT THERE IS A "AddTable" LINE IN THE FILE?
AND I NEED TO EDIT THAT?


Digit in promt (DOS): ADDTABLE DISG DSIG.DAT <old TTF> <new TTF>
IN DOS PROMPT DO I ENTER EXACTLY THIS?
DO I REPLACE <old TTF> AND <new TTF> WITH THE REAL FILENAMES?


Put the file and font in the same ADDTABLE directory.
DOES THIS MEAN ENTER THE NAME OF "DSIG.DAT" AND THE NAME OF THE NEW FONT IN THE SAME DIRECTORY?

Thanks

Hi Thomas,

I solved. In the attac the native file. If you want to know how I solved, open it and go to "OpenType" palette. In the preview write "csssss " (c + sssss + <space>).

Thank you
Best regard.
Andrea

PS Is my english understandable?
