Re: How to delete my test fonts

Upgrade question: V4.5 to V5.6

I have FontCreattor 4.5. I am interested in upgrading. I don't see that my V4.5 had a professional or home version but some of the feature my version has are listed in the professional program list. What are the major changes between V4.5 and version 5.6?

Thanks
Patrick

Thanks for looking
