Hey can I ask why is Postscript driver important?
Also, @Thomas Phinney a printer I'm considering doesn't have PS but has PDF as a language, is that of similar quality, or is it usual that the resolution drops?
@Kent Lew Thanks Kent, I read the section and I'm still not sure at what height, size and what spacing is ideal for these glyphs:
Mathematical operators render on the math centerline, rather than the text baseline.
The distinction between middle d…
I like your idea a lot!
Is there a way to make it find the group kerning, like one can assume all the following:
Should be `A V`. Can you run it through the kerning t…
I was exporting straight from Glyphs app, which for whatever reason wasn't producing a nice autohint, I then ran the fonts through ttfautohint (an older version) with `-w G` option, which I understand is now `-a qsq`

Note that there might be differences depending on the intended use of the typeface.
ƒ When used as a florin, always italic. When used as a hooked f, follow the lowercase letters.
So, this is a case when two differe…
What size is a good periodcentered compared to the lowercase letter weight or the period? I had read from some Catalan readers that it shouldn't be the same size in certain cases but I can't find the reference again.
Thank you for your posts so far, I've never used VTT before and am about to for the first time, previously I had used ttfautohint with the control files, a tedious process that involved opening FontForge, enabling grid fit to read each…
Yep, before controls files were introduced, making minor transformations to the glyph outlines was the way to get the best results from ttfa
How does that work when in one size a stroke is too thick, and too thin in another size?
I bought Speedpunk and have started to use it out but I still don't understand when it's useful, I've been having trouble with round italic glyphs, and for that reason I thought maybe it could show me where my issues might be.
But apart from seeing…
