New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm looking for some advice, tutorial, or methods for hinting.
I'm producing Post Script Opentype fonts and using this process at the moment to hint.
1. Set the Alignment Zones - Not using auto zones which doesn't seem to do a great job.
2. Auto Hint the fonts with either FontLabs Auto Hinting or Adobe's AFDKO - I've tried both to compare results. I then adjust hints that don't seem to work.
3. Set the Standard Stems - Again not using auto stems but the method described here
After using this process and changing lots of different parameters I'm still getting hints that don't seem to be working.
This image shows the Sub/Superscript, the Superscript on the right is jumping all over the place at small sizes.
Is there anything else I can try to improve the hinting ?
