Multiple Font copies

Post by fincab » Wed Feb 03, 2016 4:14 pm

When I am creating a font, Font Creator creates another copy of the font each time I save a new version. Thus, when I open font creator it ends up opening MULTIPLE copies of my current font, sometimes more than 10!

How can I stop this?
Is it safe to delete these copies?

In Tools, Options, Advanced, disable "Save backup copy when saving project."

I always prefer to make manual backups, but you do have to be systematic. What I do is use 7-Zip to archive my font projects folder, and store that on DropBox and USB drives. If I do mess up, I usually have a backup that I can restore.
