  • PANOSE is important for any designer/programmer who has enough knowledge of python to think "I can probably script this!" and emerges days later with 800 lines of worthless code and a deep anger at the spec. Welcome to the club.
  • We tag our web fonts. The order number is included in a namerecord similar to how Font Squirrel does it. We've found it useful for checking to see if a website is using a properly licensed font, or for diagnosing font problems (i.e. customer made s…
  • We've been dealing with the Word2016 line spacing problem. Older versions of Word display and print using the usWin ascender/descender values.  But in Word 2016, text is displayed using the sTypo ascender/descender/lineGap, but then printed using us…

  • Update: FontBook cannot install Type 1 fonts I ran FontNuke and Type 1 fonts display in Adobe apps & Word. Font Book only installs the suitcase file, but not the printer file. The font still does not work if you copy the printer file to the Fo…
  • Sorry I'm late to the party. No problems with FontLab or RoboFont. Thank you to Ben for the tip about the site-packages (bonus Thank You to Time Machine). I'm noticing some weird issues with Type 1 fonts. Installing a font via FontBook will only …
