« Free FontLab Latin encoding files for type designers

I just posted some free FontLab “.enc” encoding/character set files for the five Adobe Latin character sets, in my Github repository.

To install, quit FontLab, find the “Encoding” folder in the shared “FontLab” folder, and drop the files in there. Restart FontLab and these will be available as encodings.

NOTE: These were later updated to reflect minor tweaks Adobe has made since I described the character sets and posted the data, almost six years ago. I added currency symbols such as the Indian rupee, Turkish lira, Russian ruble and Ukrainian hryvni, and changed a few glyph names to match current Adobe practice. Thanks as always to my old friends at Adobe, including Miguel and David Lemon, for their willingness to share production information with the type design community.

This follows a couple of possibly-useful FontLab scripts I posted a couple of weeks ago, in the same place.
