Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Thx Brynn, will look into that cleanup. Whatever I followed from Microsoft cleaned up thousands of old files, so far so good. I am guessing that creating fonts hides even more files than I ever imagined. Somehow I didn't save the link to what I did, so will never figure it out again. My pc is over 7...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Thx Moini. Couldn't have done the Inkscape Editor without you. and I sure hope some documentation comes out soon! Am using primarily for words and sayings on top of drawings that I sell on microstock sites, etsy, etc. (example, Baby's 1st Christmas and Merry Christmas, or Happy Halloween that are on...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

While I can't claim to have learned it all, and kerning and line spacing isn't the greatest, I wanted to show you'all who have helped me so much the end result (don't get too excited, the font itself isn't real exciting, but it will let me do what I want to do). So, drum rollllllllllllllllll. here i...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Brynn - here's an excerpt from the FF manual, thought you'd be interested: Non-Integral Coordinates In TrueType fonts all coordinates must be on integral coordinates. When FontForge generates your font it will round any non-integral coordinates -- sometimes this is fine, but it can also introduce sm...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Glad you were able to figure out how to use the input methods. Made some progress, I did use copy paste. I was able to copy the icons from other fonts, (opened up the Text/Glyphs menu and it docks with the SVG font Editor menu). Got the glyphs uploaded, even the card suits, and opened up in FontForg...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

You have to double click to the right of the glyph number, in precisely the right place, then a box opens up, ensure your cursor is in it, and then right click. confusing right? I stumbled upon it. I tried pasting the unicode, tried holding down the ctrl key, with the unicode, tried typing it, can't...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Question on the Inkscape font Editor - how do you add glyphs via input methods and Insert Unicode Control characters'? I haven't been successful at all. Can't find any documentation in the manual on the font editor at all, and searching the vids, etc hasn't helped. Basically I have a bunch of glyphs...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Will do re: the transformations. I 'played' with the flipped b and re-unioned it a few times, and it finally worked. Some of these, even after path union just don't appear. Getting there though. I assume I can put upper case, lower case and numbers, characters all in one file. Do you put the nodes a...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Moini - that video answered it, yay. and thanks. Needed to do a path union. Still some glitches, but figuring it out. here's a good one, it wouldn't preview my 'd', no matter what, even after path union and a simplify. Then I tried using my 'b' and flipping it, but the preview then showed it as a 'b...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

It's in Inkscape where it's off, for instance inkscape has 3 decimal places (x/y), so I may put a node on 60.995, where it needs to be on 61.000. All I can say is that FF calls .25, .50 .75 integer numbers, yeah, I thought it was a whole number too, but that's what I can figure out, don't know why. ...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

I have used the fontforge (FF) manual extensively, some of it goes over my head. I couldn't figure out a way to upload the svg directly, thx for that cleversday link, will look when I have more time. yes, I mean the command line for dos, even opening a file is a pain. There is a forum for FF, kinda,...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Font maker meant any pgm used to make fonts. I do use fontforge, but not thrilled with it. What I mean is there needs to be a drop and drag pgm (like windows can do), where I build the glyphs in inkscape and drag them into the font pgm, line them up and done. Fontforge basically uses the dos type co...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

It just doesn't work well, they aren't snapped to integral coordinates, and somehow they move, haven't figured it all out. Needs to be a way to snap a bunch of nodes to integrals and then lock them down. sidenote: I haven't figured out how to do testing of fonts 'the right way', at least per what fo...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Moini - thx for that info, that is simply wonderful. Guess I have to wait for v 93 (I haven't even upgraded to 92.2, might do that this weekend). I don't ever recall there being an issue of retaining old fonts until v 92, but maybe just didn't notice, I only started dealing with creating fonts a cou...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Success, I was finally able to delete the hidden fonts!! yippee. I must have deleted nearly 100 old fonts, wow! I did crash Word in the process, so this has really been an ordeal. Here's a detailed description of how to do this - and how to fix Word too, it's not so hard if you know the tricks. This...

Re: Different line width by path segment

If you go about 6 posts up, I attached screen shot called 'scaling tool for png 10-21-17'. click on that to see the picture that should be on your own toolbar. If it's not t...

Re: Different line width by path segment

Tylerdurden. I can't figure out what is causing it, don't think the extra nodes only occur on stroked objects (but can't swear to that). I've tried to re-create how it happens and can't cause it on purpose. Also, I have duplicated an object, say a circle or rectangle and only one of the objects gets...

Re: Different line width by path segment

Ponny. I think you have 2 diff issues. I think it's a bug that extra nodes are created by themselves, hence nothing we can do about it ourselves. It doesn't seem to help to delete the extra node(s), it simply keeps re-creating them over and over. It seems like the stroke being dis-proportionate coul...

Re: Different line width by path segment

I've only had the issue of duplicating nodes appearing since using v 92, it's driving me nutty, and I can't figure out why it happens. No matter how many times I delete the extra nodes, boom, they re-appear. And just to be sure, are you sure your button is selected to change the scaling proportional...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Thanks Brynn. I will check that out. DDG sounds like a game, lol. I posted a note in the msn forum, figured if anyone should know how to remove them, it'd be them, but so far no responses, only views, so it's not a common issue. It's not hard to find file mgrs, it's hard to find one that can remove ...

Re: Bezier lines inconsistent width (Inkscape 0.92.1 r15371)

Beth, I have the same issue with stroke to path. Since I don't use that option very much, I do a simple workaround - add more nodes. You can do this before or after applying stroke to path. Very easy, select your object or path, in node mode select all the nodes (or just the ones involved), click th...
