FontLab VI: UFO support (also vfb2ufo) / Re: guidelines missing
« Last post by Luc[as] on Today at 12:20:13 »
That's right, UFO is still in its infancy.
But the impression I got from the ATypI presentation was that VFB2UFO exports *everything* into a UFO, and use private (open) mechanisms for stuff that is missing from the current UFO specifications.

AFAIK, guidelines are not part of the UFO spec.

Applications must use their private mechanism to store guides in a UFO, that means in the font or glyph lib.

FontLab Studio Problems / Re: FontLab Studio vs Yosemite
« Last post by Jens on Today at 12:00:48 »
So: Looks like the problem is that, after upgrading to Yosemite, running scripts containing RoboFab calls are delayed for at least a minute before the run the first time. (For some users, anyway.)

I have experienced the same delay, and have digged into RoboFab to find the cause. I’ve just submitted a patch to https://github.com/robofab-developers/robofab which should fix the issue. Could you try updating RoboFab from there?

Thanks, Thomas!

Open your user folder in the Finder. Hit Cmd-J (or View > Show View Options).

Right near the bottom is a checkbox for "Show Library Folder." Check it, and....

FontLab VI: UFO support (also vfb2ufo) / guidelines missing
« Last post by Luc[as] on 2014-12-17, 18:53:33 »
In FontLab we can have named and custom colored guidelines, local and global.
(at least on PC. On Mac the colored guidelines all show in Red)
Although support for guidelines in FontLab has always been buggy, I have used them a lot, e.g. to compensate for the ridiculous 1980s PostScript limitation of being able to define only 6 top zones.

Anyway, I can't find any guidelines in the UFO. Not good. Are they hidden?

Yuri,
thanks for the info. Looking forward to the update!

Adam,
I just noticed your reply. You still interested in the files?

Best,
Christoph

>>Installation is a nondestructive process: by placing the fonts in your /Library/Fonts folder<<
Where do I find the "/Library/Fonts folder"?  Yosemite has eaten it.

In vertical double links, either there’s a horizontal (!) stem assigned or none at all.
Could you please look into this?
This is confirmed and will be fixed in the next updated build (which will appear soon).
Thank you, Christoph!

I note that some of the system-font-replacement hacks may alleviate the "Creation Date" issue. For example, I currently have used the Input font replacement, and that seems to fix the problem.
