Re: Modifying glyph names

That's the beauty of access keys over shortcuts. You do not have to remember them. If you don't pick up the program for a year, the shortcuts are underlined. C lear G enerate E dit... F ind and Replace... They are also easy to remember as they are all (in this case) the first letter of the command.

Re: All images missing from help browser

The images are there for me on Windows 10 in the help file with the latest build 2430 of FontCreator 11.5.

Are all images missing from help?

How about Online Help?

Re: Tip of the Day

Using Access Keys If there is no shortcut for a particular command, access keys are always an alternative. For example, to edit the selected glyphs, use Alt+L, N, E: https://forum.high-logic.com/download/file.php?id=7877 Another example, which I use frequently, is exporting all Fonts: Export All Fo...

Help: Ctrl+E Shortcut

The Help for FontCreator 11.5 still shows "Paste Special," as the command for Ctrl+E.

It should show "Export Settings." Shortcut Ctrl+Alt+V = "Paste Special."

Re: Modifying glyph names

A Context Menu would be slower. I understand that some users are addicted to doing everything with the mouse, but it really is much less efficient. If Edit Glyph Names were to be added to the Context Menu for selected glyphs, it would have to be a submenu like the current Ta g s submenu, because the...

That's a weird shortcut but it works, thanks.
Is there a map for the commands, if I forget anything? (or want to learn new commands like this)?
Just look at the menu.

Can you add an "Edit Selected Glyphs" shortcut, when right clicking on some glyphs?
Try Alt+L, N, E. If you use any function frequently, you soon memorise the Access Key route, which is available for most, if not all, commands.
