Viewing Alternate/Special/Swash Characters in Character Panel

Is it possible to view the special/alternative/swash characters of Open Type fonts in the Character panel? For instance, I have a font with several alternate/decorative caps that I would like to see all options laid out in the Character panel, but I only see the 'standard' caps of each letter, and t...

Re: Importing Tags/Ratings Not Working

Oh wait, weirdly they are there now. I had to close out of the program and re-start it. Is that normal, or should they show up immediately?

Re: Importing Tags/Ratings Not Working

I exported them in version 9, then upgraded to v10, uninstalled everything and re-installed v9. Tags were gone and like I said re-importing simply didn't work.

Am I doing it right:

Importing Tags/Ratings Not Working

I spent hours tagging all of my fonts, then exported the tags and ratings to an XML file. I had to re-install MainType, and when I went to: Tools/Import and Export/Import Tags and Ratings, and chose my file, nothing happened. It didn't import my previously saved tags. There seems to be no specific d...

Cubic vs. Quadratic

Will converting contours from Cubic to Quadratic (or vice-verse) alter the shape/outline of the glyphs? If I am copy-pasting glyphs from Adobe Illustrator, they will be Quadratic, correct? Any advantage to converting to Cubic if I am exporting the fonts as CFF? And finally, will the fonts look bette...

Program window pop-up when opening a font

I noticed that when going to a font file, right-clicking/Open With/Font Creator - the program stays 'hidden' on the Task Bar (if I already have the program open), instead of popping up on the screen like other programs do. Can this be changed for the next version? It makes it seem like 'Open With' d...

Re: Keyboard Shortcut for File/Export Settings

Ctrl + E would be a lot better, but that would require a change of the shortcut for Paste Special to Ctrl + Shift + V. Although that makes better logical sense, changing shortcuts is risky as it may annoy any users who frequently use Paste Special. Is there a reason why there are two different shor...

Yes, it is. Keyboard Shortcuts
How about Ctrl + D? That's a good one.

Keyboard Shortcut for File/Export Settings

I am perplexed why there is no keyboard shortcut for File/Export Settings, as it is something I am constantly opening and have to check every time I export a font.

It would be EXTREMELY helpful to have a keyboard shortcut for this and would save so much time.
