Default Colour of background image

Post by PJMiller » Sat Nov 28, 2015 11:10 am

In Font Creator you can copy the current glyph into a background image and what a great feature this is, it simplifies the process of simplifying a glyph (many thanks to Bhikkhu for this great tip).

One annoyance however is that it always defaults to black and I always have to set it to a colour different to the contour lines (I choose pale yellow or pale green).

It would be nice if the program remembered the last colour you used and defaulted to that or if you could set the default colour in the options.

I support this. Yellow is the best colour to provide contrast for black lines.

I support this request too. I don't think black is the most useful default colour for a background image.

Dear Erwin,

Thank you very very much for implementing this feature in version 9.1 !

This has eliminated a most annoying feature.

Thank you for responding to feedback from customers.
