  1. Tagging is one way of doing things but marking is more to the point. I can also temporarily capitalize or underline text to draw attention but a bright yellow marker is best.
  2. This may be asking for much but being able to Comment and Markup a text would be very nice. Markup would satisfy me. Any Comments ? Thanks, Andre
  3. You are right Walt, my message is wrong, I actually used All Caps not Upper Case. Using Upper Case made the difference and everything pasted correctly in FontLab. Thanks Walt and thanks also fde101
  4. Thanks Old Bruce and Wosven. No, the text in Publisher was in lower case. I capitalized it (Text > Capitalisation > Upper Case) and it changed "things" to "THINGS", I selected it and pasted it in FontLab and got "things" but expected to get "THINGS".
  5. I copied a capitalized text in Publisher and pasted it in FontLab and it came out as a lower case text. Is there a way around this ? Thanks
  6. Thanks Mac, Publisher is looking good !
  7. Thanks Mac and Garett, you are right, that was an Illustrator file that I pasted, I thought that Publisher would reflow the text like Illustrator does. Mac, how did you get to see those cr lf to show ? In Pages it's simply "Show Invisible". Publisher needs a user manual, is there one in the making ?
  8. I modified the margins and reflowed the text and the hyphenation is all wrong, but it was wrong even before reflowing but now more so. At the end of the second line it should be "économi- " not "écono-" , etc. Hyphenation is all wrong throughout this page and yes I read everything that Publisher has to say about the subject. I also mostly work by intuition and obviously functions in Publisher are mostly not intuitive. Thanks 8X10_13pts Arial-FR.afpub
  9. Reflowing a text after modifying a page size is **intuitive** in Illustrator: 1) set new margins, 2) select the text box, 3) resize text box to match the margins and voilà! No need to read a book. Functions that are not intuitive should be described in a User Manual. Is there one in the making ? Thanks
  10. Good morning Mac, Does that mean that font embedding is not supported by Publisher or that it does support it somewhat but not correctly ? Thanks
  11. Good advice Walt, I know that I can trust PDF to respect a font as designed by its creator. The publishing industry and printers relie heavily on PDF documents and Pages documents are easily converted to PDF. My comment about Publisher not being able to read Pages files was not a good one as pointed out by Mac, I have to look deeper into Publisher's vocation and how I can use it in my work. Thanks
  12. Not a big problem. Publisher could be the super type-setting-oriented-word-processor that I'm looking for, one that would take FontLab's Text tool a step further. Publisher as an InDesign alternative for the publishing business is improbable, at least not in the foreseeable future.
  13. I note that Publisher will not open documents from "Pages for Mac", is there a reason for that ? I know that Pages documents can be converted to a PDF and then Publisher will open them, Copy and Paste will also work, but those detours are very inconvenient. Thanks
  14. Thanks ABP, kerning the f is indeed a bit special, thanks for reminding me. This requires negative spacing between an f and a space, other characters at the end of a word may also need to be adjusted, the r for instance. In any case even if the font is wrong Publisher must respect the font design.
