[CLOSED] FontCreator 9.1 - problem with contextual alternates

Post by redbat » Sat Jan 30, 2016 11:32 pm

Font Creator update just broke contextual alternates in my font. They do not work properly after the update.
How can I go back to version 9.0.

The previous version (FontCreator 9.0) contains a flaw in the way lookups are ordered. The update behaves correctly, but might need manual reordering. We are sorry about the inconvenience, but after fixing it, the problem should be solved.

Let us know your results.

Thank you for quick response.
At the moment I went back to 9.0. I will try the new version with my next font.

Version 9.0 exports lookups not in a reliable order, so we strongly recommend to use version 9.1.
