Glyph Window Extents

Post by Jaynz » Sun Aug 18, 2013 2:12 pm

This may seem like a minor issue, but it's one that makes FC7.5 extremely frustrating to use on a heavy basis. When a glyph window is opened, it is possible for the new window to NOT constantly be going over the extents of the program window? I have to resize and 'search out the edges' of the glyph window EVERY SINGLE TIME, and it's more than a little annoying. This is a really bizarre change from previous versions of the program.

On that note, would it also be possible for FC7.5 to remember some of my basic settings as a program default, such as gridlines, without having to redo them every time I open a project? I mean, once I'm using a certain gridline schema, it's not like I'm going to change it much for every single font I use... Again, the previous versions of FC remembered these settings, why not this one?

And, yes, while I understand that most people would consider these minor issues, I admit that I'm seriously reconsidering going back to FC6 just to save myself these hassles.

  1. I don't understand the problem. Just tile or cascade the windows instead of maximising them.
  2. Each project has its own guidelines settings, which is much more versatile than using the same for all projects. It would be nice to have a way to set the defaults for new projects, but once a project is created, then there's no need to change the settings again. I spend days or weeks on one project. Others may open loads of fonts to make minor edits to all of them.
