Hinting glitch in ampersand of Bold


This has been fixed in the source files and will be included in the next build.


It appears that the source file for Bold no longer matches the GlyphOrderAndAliasDB_TT spec after this modification...

makeotf [Note] Converting source font 'Roman/Bold/font.ttf' to temporary Unix Type1 font file 'Roman/Bold/font.ttf.tmp'.
makeotf [Note] adding the style Bold from fontinfo keyword.
makeotf [Note] setting the DONT_USE_WIN_LINE_METRICS OS/2 fsSelection bit 7 from fontinfo keyword.
makeotf [Note] setting the WEIGHT_WIDTH_SLOPE_ONLY OS/2 fsSelection bit 8 from fontinfo keyword.
makeotf [Note] setting the OBLIQUE OS/2 fsSelection bit 9 from fontinfo keyword.

makeotf [Note] Writing options file Roman/Bold/current.fpr
makeotf [Note] Writing options file target/SourceCodePro-Bold-ttf.fpr
makeotf [Error] For TTF fonts, the GlyphOrderAndAliasDB file must preserve the original font glyph order, and use the same names as they are derived by the 'tx' tool. ../../GlyphOrderAndAliasDB_TT.

See issue #19 for discussion and pull request #21 for a fix to the above error in makeotf. (Apologies for spamming the bug tracker! :))


Fixed in revision 1.010
