Information about the font is found on the Font Properties page (from the Font menu).

 

These fields can't be modified directly as they are calculated and depend on other font related data, but you can double-click a row, to jump to the specific glyph.

 

NumGlyphs

The number of glyphs in the font.

maxPoints

Maximum points in a non-composite glyph.        

maxContours

Maximum contours in a non-composite glyph.        

maxCompositePoints

Maximum points in a composite glyph.        

maxCompositeContours

Maximum contours in a composite glyph.        

maxZones

1 if instructions do not use the twilight zone (Z0), or 2 if instructions do use Z0; should be set to 2 in most cases.        

maxTwilightPoints

Maximum points used in Z0.        

maxStorage

Number of Storage Area locations.        

maxFunctionDefs

Number of FDEFs.        

maxInstructionDefs

Number of IDEFs.        

maxStackElements

Maximum stack depth. This includes Font and CVT Programs, as well as the instructions for each glyph.

maxSizeOfInstructions

Maximum byte count for glyph instructions.        

maxComponentElements

Maximum number of components referenced at "top level" for any composite glyph.        

maxComponentDepth

Maximum levels of recursion; 1 for simple components.        

X Minimum for all glyph bounding boxes

Y Minimum for all glyph bounding boxes

X Maximum for all glyph bounding boxes

Y Maximum for all glyph bounding boxes

The bounding box values computed using only glyphs that have contours.

advanceWidthMax

Maximum advance width value

minLeftSideBearing

Minimum left side bearing value

minRightSideBearing

Minimum right side bearing value

xMaxExtent

Maximum extent value

usFirstCharIndex

The minimum Unicode index (character code) in this font, according to the Windows Unicode BMP (UCS-2) or Windows Symbol mapping table. For most fonts supporting Win-ANSI or other character sets, this value would be 0x0020.

usLastCharIndex

The maximum Unicode index (character code) in this font, according to the Windows Unicode BMP (UCS-2) or Windows Symbol mapping table. This value depends on which character sets the font supports.
