'Edit in Font Creator' box greyed out in Scanahand

Post by ravells »

Hi All,

I'd be grateful for some help.

I have both Scanahand and Font Creator professional editions with the latest updates.

Scanahand has an option in the 'Font' window to edit the font in Font Creator, but it is greyed out.

I am running Windows 7 and have installed Font Creator and Scanahand in their default directories: C/Program Files (x86)/Hi Logic Scanahand and C/Program Files (x86)/Hi Logic Font Creator.

Is there something I need to do to get Scanahand to 'see' that I have Font Creator on my system so the greyed out box activates?

Many thanks in advance,

ravells

The button should be greyed out unless you have:
  1. Loaded a filled in template
  2. Generated a font
  3. Saved it to disk
Have you done all that?

Ah, thanks Bhikku,

I had not saved it to disk, which was the problem. Works fine now.
