Re: Why do overlapping curves cause overlap region to disappear?

This explains why this is now happening... FCOutDrw is a new dynamic linked library (DLL) which is used to draw smooth glyph outlines. If the file is removed, FontCreator will use the old drawing method. The new method uses the even-odd rule when it comes to determining whether an area is inside or ...

Re: Kaspersky Alarming Virus Warning

The new method uses the even-odd rule when it comes to determining whether an area is inside or outside while the old method uses the non-zero winding rule.

Is it your experience that FontCreator runs, or does it fail to start due to the missing DLL? FontCreator does still run, and very oddly having the virus scanner delete FCOut...

Re: Why do overlapping curves cause overlap region to disappear?

So this is weird... the problem has suddenly disappeared... And it disappeared immediately after my virus scanner deleted FCOutDrw.dll because it thought it was the Trojan-Banker.Win32.Banbra.vdfk malware/virus (I posted about that issue in this thread ). In that thread they mention that deleting th...

Why do overlapping curves cause overlap region to disappear?

I'm very confused. I have two closed curves and when one I overlap them the overlapped region disappears (is invisible). Why would this be? Presumably a related phenomena, when I try to use join on the two curves thinking this would solve the problem both curves effectively disappear, and where they...
