It sounds more like a problem caused by Autocorrect. Maybe f + i = fi

Tools, Options, Font, Set left side-bearing at x=0 when saving fonts.

Or drag the shadow contour to the right before deleting it. The former option might cause unexpected changes if the original font has some glyphs where the left side-bearing is not at x=0 already.

Font Studio? :? That is a font pack of Hebrew fonts. Presumably you mean Font Creator. It is not easy to offer an unbiased opinion as I have been using Font Creator for a long time, while I have only had a quick look at the free trial of Type Tool.
