Chrysanthi Unicode Mono in Scribus?

386sky's picture

Hi all!

You created your Chrysanthi Unicode Monospace font by Font Creator, but when you try to test it in Scribus, you get excessive spacing.

Unicode range coverage:
Basic Latin (complete in both fonts)
Latin-1 Supplement (complete in both fonts)
Latin Extended-A (complete in both fonts)
Latin Extended-B (incomplete in proportional, complete in monospace for 5.0) i
(proportional font only) These characters are not part of the Unicode Standard, and have been mapped to private use sectors 0234 – 0237. These characters are used in the Tsœxisca language. I have also mapped a capital and lower-case ezh to 0220 and 0221, respectively.

IPA Extensions (incomplete in proportional, complete in monospace for 5.0)
Spacing Modifier Letters (incomplete in proportional, complete in monospace for 5.0)
Combining Diacritics (incomplete in proportional, complete in monospace for 5.0) ii

(proportional font only) Because this is not a fixed width font, the combining marks will not line up precisely with all characters. I have tried to make them line up as well as possible with as many characters as possible.
