Font Display Issue

Post by msleger » Sun Nov 11, 2007 10:22 am

I had suggested this as an improvement to version 8 and it doesn't appear in version 9, so here it is again.

People often produce fonts that have only upper-case or only lower-case characters. FontExpert wants to always display font names in proper-case. This causes fonts with no lower-case glyphs to show only the first character in the names, and fonts with no upper-case glyphs to be missing the first character in the names. It would be smarter if FontExperted substituted missing characters with glyphs from the defined case so names display completely. (It would be much smarter if people didn't develop fonts with missing glyphs, but accepting that these fonts exist means a font manager should be able to cope with them.)

Thank you for suggestion. I think this feature can only be available as an option (to automatically adjust lower and upper case letters in font sample text, depending on the character glyphs available in previewed font).
