I get warnings of the kind

pdfTeX warning: /usr/bin/pdflatex (file /usr/local/share/texmf/fonts/type1/adob
e/MinionPro/MinionPro-Capt.pfb): glyph `eight.fitted' undefined

for all numerals and the viewer displays empty boxes only.

The problem disappears if I remove the lf option. Then I get the old style figures. Also normalsize lining figures work ok. Of course with noopticals as option the problem disappears.

Is that problem known?

  • You might want to try the recent lcdf-typetools version 2.99. A bug has been fixed, which created a bad three.fitted glyph. – sebschub Aug 14 '13 at 14:32

I suppose that your question is related to the MinonPro package. This package comes withs several versions of the .enc files that correspond to several versions of the OTF fonts (versions are 1.000, 1.001 and 2.000). The .fitted named digits are present only in the 2.000 version.

I suspect you have mixed the versions of the otf fonts (say MinionPro-Regular.otf in 2.000 version and MinionPro-Capt.otf in 1.00x version). You should check the version numbers of yours fonts. For instance cd in a directory containing the fonts and :

$ otfinfo -v MinonPro-Capt.otf

    just a reminder those Minion Pro scripts are out of date. The most up-to-date version (forked from the scripts on CTAN) can be found at github.com/sebschub/FontPro/. – nnunes Jul 25 '13 at 9:10
  • Thank you. I have the correct .enc files (001.001). But if the .fitted named digits are only in version 2.000 then the problem must be with the encoding. – user34126 Jul 25 '13 at 9:24
  • Hmmm ! There are no .fitted named digits in the 1.001 enc files (base-MinionPro-aa.enc) that I just download from CTAN. – Michel Bovani Jul 25 '13 at 10:11

    @nnunes -- it would be a great favor to tex users if the scripts at ctan could be kept up to date. – barbara beeton Jul 25 '13 at 12:29
