Before consulting the frequently asked questions below, please check to make sure you are running the latest version of our font editor, which is FontCreator 11.5.
Word-processors often use autocorrect to convert the straight apostrophe (') and straight quote or inches character (") to typographical quotation marks (“), (”), (‘) and (’), also known as smart or curly quotes. If your font doesn't have mappings to these characters, you will see rectangles instead. When the quotes aren't showing at all, you need to add outlines to the corresponding glyphs. Make sure that your font contains all of the recommended glyphs as explained in the user manual.
The font name is stored inside the font, so changing the file name won't work. To change the font name, go to Font Properties dialog. From there select the Identification tab, which allows you to change the font name. Then export the font.
No, our font editor runs on Windows only. However fonts created with our software can be used on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and in all modern web browsers.
The quality has a lot to do with hinting. The hints are what make a font look good at low resolutions. FontCreator can automatically add hinting information to your TrueType based fonts. Another solution is to enable smoothing which is available from the Font Properties dialog.
