All type foundaries I know use a 1000×1000 square when drawing Kanjis.Chris Lozos said:I would think that Asian fonts like Chinese, would be much easier to deal with at very high UPM. There are an awful lot more layers and strokes than compared to Latin.
Double-click your font, in the preview window you can see "TrueType Outlines" vs "PostScript Outlines".Ori Ben-Dor said:A built-in Mac command that given an OTF file tells you its flavor? Nice. I'm a Windows user, anyhow
And CFF2 allows that you can re-use a blended result as a parameter of another blend operator, which introduces non-linear interpolation that TT’s GVAR cannot support.Read Roberts said:Unfortunately, blending a subroutine index is not forbidden in the 1.8.1 CFF2 CharStrings chapter. The intent is in fact to allow blending of only coordinate values. This follows from a higher level principle that we want to always be able to convert a set of outlines between TrueType and CFF2 CharStrings, and hence do not want to allow operations in CFF2 Charstrings that cannot be supported in TrueType. There was a sentence which stated this in most versions of the 1.8.1 working draft, but it got lost by accident before the final version. At this point, it will have to wait for the 1.8.2 update, but this restriction will go back into the spec.
