Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Outline gap with a custom runtime font

I noticed that the outlines are not centered with the text when you use custom fonts. The gap seems differs depending on the used fonts.

Any idea ? Thanks alt text

Hello IBREC,

I tested a few fonts on our end and I was unable to reproduce this issue. I have a few questions for you that will help narrow down what issue it is that you are experiencing.

Quick questions:

  1. Can you reproduce this issue in a clean project?

  2. If so, could you provide a detailed list of steps to reproduce this issue on our end?

  3. Could you provide screen shots on any settings that you may have changed?

  4. What fonts are you using that are showing the offset?

Yes I can reproduce this issue in a clean project, with all default settings and classic steps, but only with my custom made fonts.

I don't have this issue with "default" fonts of the computer, like Arial, Times New Roman or anything else.

My fonts are made for the game with standard .ttf files.

And I don't have this kind of issue in other software like Photoshop, Word or website.

I can send you the .ttf file if you want.

If you could provide the .ttf file, I will be happy to take a closer look.

Here is the .ttf file : https://www.dropbox.com/s/aa0t4b5kyqiv340/Custom-font.ttf?dl=1

NOTE : This font accept only uppercase and numbers. (no lowercase available)

Hello IBREC,

After running a few tests it appears that your zero in your font may not be centered within the allotted space given for the character in the font. Could you try centering the zero in your font and let me know if this solves the issue?

1 answer: sort voted first

With this V2, it seems to work fine, but I changed nothing.

I just re-saved the first .ttf with an other font editor : imported and saved, nothing more.

But I don't find any difference with the first version. Do you have any idea ?

The first one was made with paintfont.com and I re-saved the .ttf with Birdfont (birdfont.org) to have the V2.
