Glyph Properties Menu Item Missing

Post by ClintGoss » Wed May 08, 2019 2:23 pm

(hate to bring this up in the middle of a major version rollout but ...)

Right-clicking in a Glyph Edit window brings up a popup menu that typically has "Glyph Properties" as its last menu item. However, if the glyph has no contours, that last menu item is absent.

Workarounds: To get to Glyph Properties, I have to exit back to the Font Overview, where I can right-click and select Glyph Properties (it does work from the Font Overview window). Alternately I can move forward or backward until I find a glyph with contours, bring up Glyph Properties, then move back to my intended glyph.

I'm on the latest (and last) version of FontCreator Pro 11.5, Win7x64 on a Classic Theme.

We'll add it in the next upcoming release of FontCreator 12.

In version 11, F4 should toggle between show and hide of the glyph properties toolwindow.

What a joy!

[F4] is so so handy, and I'm now pouring over the entire Keyboard Shortcuts section of the manual ...
