Copy/Paste from Illustrator

Postby jedbadda » Sun Feb 19, 2017 10:29 pm

Is there any way to paste a glyph coming from Illustrator close to the center of the glyph editor window? I do my whole alphabet from A-Z horizontally, side by side in AI and paste each letter individually into FontCreator, which means the position where it lands after the Paste varies wildly. Surely there is a way to just paste it into the center of the window?

I know there was a thread about this last year but there was no solution.

The position can be changed in Tools, Options, Import.

I went to Tools/Options/Import and changed all the Origin X and Origin Y values to 0 and it made no difference.

And 'Paste Special' isn't even an option (it is ghosted in the menu).

Using version 10.1, Windows 7.
