Identifying the font on the open type designer window

Post by Mike Thompson » Sun Mar 13, 2016 2:28 pm

Lately I have been working on similar fonts for example different weights.
I have two Font Creator applications running and also two OT Designer windows open
and these are quite wide and overlap. I try to keep the windows of one font to the
right and the other to the left. Occasionally I need to open a Class Manager or Code Editor...
Occasionally I become dizzy!

Please label these windows with the project name!

Consider it done with the next upcoming release.

I would also find this quite useful as I sometimes use two instances of Font Creator at the same time.

This will be part of the next upcoming major release (FontCreator 10).

This has been partially implemented in FontCreator 10. The OpenType Designer window now shows the name of the current font in the title bar.

It does not yet show in the Code Editor or the Class Manager windows.
