New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Mystified by the third box in the FontLab Hinting Settings section.
There's only a single sentence about it that I could find in the FontLab manual.
I asked some folks at Adobe about this and, since they use tools developed in-house, they had no clue - not even an educated guess about what these settings do.
In FontLab's Hinting Settings:
- Standard Stems (T1 hinting)
- Additional hinting parameters
This next one is the mystery:
- T1 Autohinting
(Gif image attached to this post and posted here, too: Type 1 Settings - FontLab
It has one row for 'Horizontal' and another row for 'Vertical', with fields for:
'MinWidth', 'MaxWidth', 'MinLength', and 'Aspect Ratio'
Twardoch, anybody? What do these settings do?
I'm no stranger to trial-and-error experimentation, but a clue would be nice.
Besides, it's odd that there's nothing specific about it in the manual.
