Adding macron
« on: 2010-08-26, 04:11:13 »
Hi,
I'd like to add a macron for several glyphs (O, U). How do I go about this (in Fontlab Studio)?  Can I make it work just like other accents (é, ü)?
thanks

Yes. Build the macron, then use the Generate Glyphs command. Or just double click the empty glyph cells.

I figured out you can build them through "add component" and then rename the composites. I am working on it. Do yo have to generate the composites for each of the combination (O+macron, U+macron etc) you want to use. For later, how do I find out the keystroke?
