FontForge 調整字型在 Windows 的安裝顯示名稱

Posted in :


預設在 FontForge 裡 TTF 檔的 info 裡是 US 的 tag 不能輸入中文字,原來是要按 <new> ,就可以新增出 chinese(Taiwan) 的 tag ,即可在繁體中文的台灣正常預覽中文字。


沒有增加 chinese(Taiwan) 的 tag 字型檔案,會被作業系統當成英文字型。

在一個一個tag 在FontForge 裡按 <new> 新增,終於完成了某一個地區所需要的Tag 之後,想要處理其他地區,使用外部的文字編輯器會方便和有效率一些,使用方法是:

  • 1:另存字型檔案為「資料夾格式」(存檔時,Directory 那個地方打勾)。
  • 2:有了資料夾格式的FontForge 專案檔,使用文字編輯器也可以直接修改 FontForge 的字型資料夾裡的 font.props,複製原本第一個完成的地區,再直接修改地區的代碼,會比使用FontForge 的 GUI 界面加入來的快。

  • 台灣的 language code 是 1028;
  • 香港的 language code 是3076;
  • 中國大陸簡中的 language code是 2052;
  • 上面是修改 FontForge 的 font.props 為 Semi-Bold 的範例如。

 FontForge 修改字型的 Font info (主選單 >> Element >> Font info…)

GUI 修改 Font Info… 的畫面:

只要增加 Family + Fullname 這 2個 tag 就可以了,但似乎有些電腦還會顯示成英文字型,建議再增加 Version + Style 這2個 tag。

如果同一個字型只有一個風格的話,Family 和 fullname 會設的一樣,如果有多個風格,記得讓 Family 放在同一個名字。


在修改為不同字重後,字型檔案的 Family 和 Fullname 的 2個 tag 修可能需要分別修改為不同的名稱,以避免在Windows 的情況下無法被作業系統識別,建議這2個tag 依照不同的語言別,填入適當的值:淡(Light)、標準(Regular)、適中(Medium)、半黑(Semi-Bold)。

套用上面的設定值後,在Windows 裡字體就可以正常顯示,而且也有自己的字體家族:


後記:還是常常會出問題,強烈建議 English(US) 和其他語言都使用 “Preferred Family” + “Preferred Styles” 欄,才不會有字體消失的問題。

設定的「不夠完整」在遇到多個 style 在同一個 family 裡會出錯,建議「完整」的設定方式如下:

為了避免多個 style 擠在同一個 family 裡時,設定錯誤會造成其他style字體無法顯示和被選取,對照上圖的解法是:

  • 所有的語系的 Family Name + Fullname Name請都使用一樣的值,使用較長的版本,例如字體名稱+風格。
  • 所有的語系都有要 Preferred Family 與 Preferred Styles 欄位。

  1. 你好,請問修改 FontForge 的字型資料夾裡的 font.props ,是指甚麼位置?
