I'd be grateful if someone could help me with installing Minion Pro
Opticals I own in an OpenType format. I've seen this issue discussed in
previous emails but I'm afraid I need more help.
I've started converting the .otf files to .pfb files with cfftot1 by Eddie
Kohler, and got .afm files using a trial copy of the program TransTypePro
by FontLab. Then I've started trying fontinst in a verbose mode with the
1) With a file I've written adhoc, I've renamed the glyphs in my pmn8a.afm
file changing, for example, A.sc to Asmall, f_l to fl, one.inferior to
oneinferior, etc. This has created a pmn8k.mtx file with the new glyph
names and the same Adobe Standard Encoding as in pmn8a.afm.
2) I've transformed the pmn8k.mtx file to pmn8r.pl with encoding 8r, and
to pmn8x.pl with encoding "adexp", an Adobe Expert Encoding with Adobe
3) I've created two .vpl files, one normal font and the other one small
4) When fontinst has ended, I've tried to create a map file with
finstmsc.sty, which used a finstmsc.rc file containing the line
but I get the error
! Map fragments writer error:
\makemapentry for reglyphed font.
Type H <return> for immediate help.
\generic_error ...turn> \space for immediate help}
\make_map_entry ...been reglyphed! \error_help_a }
\makemapentry ...ap_entry \csname Tf-#1\endcsname
5) I've written manually a pmn.map file containing
pmn8r MinionPro-Regular <8r.enc <pmn8a.pfb " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont
pmn8x MinionPro-Regular-Expert <adexp.enc <pmn8a.pfb " "
and after finishing installing the fonts in my MiKTeX distribution and
running a LaTeX example I can't get the smallcap glyphs with yap. This
tells me that pmn8x is unloadable and substitutes smallcase with smallcase
computer modern glyphs.
Thanks in advance
