Re: OpenType Features: Order of Precedence

I'm sure we can get both to work for the basics, but what about more complex formulas, or even just something like:

1st = 2x + 1/3y - (34/456)z and 2nd = 0

Re: OpenType Features: Order of Precedence

Re: FC11 64-bit: Minor bugs/problems after upgrading

With the next upcoming release we will make some improvements to this. If a contour overlaps, FontCreator will then no longer try to fix the contour direction for contours that overlap. In such case a contour direction will become clockwise if you started the contour from upper-left corner to bottom...

The tooltips look like they need fixing. That's apparently left over from earlier versions.

Yes, the hints need to be updated. This will be taken care of with the next upcoming release.
