I use FontLab to create (edit) a Font for Vietnamese. But i don't underdstand why between the characters i create couldn't display like the characters available.
My english is not good, so i can't explain further.
Hope someone can see and help me.
Thanks!!!

P/s: I will send my file (.ttf) for you if you need.

Not what you're asking (actually I can't figure out what you're asking :-) but: some of your accents seem too small.

C and a and 3 ->i want it's "Cả" not C..ả
There seems to be space between the C and ả. But i dont type space. do you know? :(

SandVo, that extra spacing between the characters would be handled by kerning them. You need to establish a kern table for your font.

Yes, this is a kerning issue. The combinations Ca and Cá have kerning values in the font, but your new diacritic characters do not. You need to add kerning for these new characters.

Feature? Kern?
I only know about the "Liga". Maybe I should learn more about how to use FontLab. But before that, can you help me this time?^ ^

SandVo, my opinion is that your best bet to fix this is to read the manual. It would be much quicker than getting help here. The manual is a FREE download for Mac and Windows (several language editions), here:

The FontLab manual is rather daunting (I would imagine even more so if English is not your first language) and just figuring out where to look can often be a challenge. You'll find the needed information in Chapter 7: Editing Metrics, which contains the section "Editing Kerning" (page 579 in the Mac manual, page 567 in the Windows version).

I think I have found the solution to this problem. Thank you very much. :-)
