Re: Limitations on Text Size

adryan,

I don't think the manual is correct on that. I've used decimal point sizes to great effect in previous documents. This time, instead of allowing me to use the even decimals – I.e., 10.2, 10.4, etc. – the font would only resize to 10.1, 10.3, and so forth. Weird.

Limitations on Text Size

Yesterday I was trying to resize text from 10.0 pt. to 10.2 pt. I selected the text, entered 10.2 pt. into the size box, and hit enter. My text re-sized to 10.1, not 10.2, and nothing I could do would change that.

Please refresh my memory. Are there limitations to the decimal point sizes one can use?

Re: Yosemite

I upgraded to Yosemite last Friday, and I did not find any incompatibility with Nisus Word Pro per se. However, I did find that several – quite a few actually – of my fonts did not work properly in either Nisus Word Pro, Pages 5, Pages '09, TextEdit, or Mellel. (Nisus Word Pro is the word processor ...

A Question About Kerning: TWIPS

Am I correct in understanding that TWIP means “twentieth of an inch point”? If so, if I want to loosen the spacing of letters in a word in small caps set in 10 pt by 6%, do I use 12 TWIPS? 10 pt X 6% X 20 TWIPS/pt = 12 TWIPS Is that correct? Would it be possible to change the kerning units to percen...

Martin,

I updated to version 2.0.7, and small caps can now be toggled on and off in every OpenType font that I tried.

Many, many thanks.
