I am not saying Rev is bad. And when I said Apple & WASTE
had glyphs which they used I should have mentioned I'm not
sure how much control was available. My point was a glyph
is not really uncommon. Also I pointed out the only thing I
have a complaint with is not being able to expand a line by
1 pixel. That is a pretty good compliment. Plus I took time
to say I don't like Apples new justification.
Anyway back to making my own font here is a problem that
I just thought of. It would be nice for my text to be compatible
within all Rev apps. If I make my own font any Rev apps that
transfer my text between their apps would need my font and
if for some reason their script counted characters they would
not know to subtract the invisible character I added. A little
thing like that can make people hate my program so I need
Rev to add it properly.
You might consider voting for the BZ request for this,
or if there isn't one already creating one.
I don't know what that is or how to do it.
