Font Creator Program v4.0.5 (v4.0.5.145)

What is new:
&#149 Paste support for composite glyphs - Neat. Might find a use for it.
&#149 Show selected glyphs in the Preview toolbar - Useful
&#149 Improved the Paste Special feature - Extremely useful, a major plus
&#149 Improved the way to enter negative values - A useful detail
&#149 New shortcuts for Overview window - Great, works very well

High on the to do list:
&#149 Add/ Subtract and Intersection - Welding contours would save time
&#149 Improve Import Image - Very important enhancement needed
&#149 Extend Problem Report - Professional feature
&#149 Font Transform wizard - Very useful, would save work-arounds. Most requested feature to make a font bold or italic might be difficult
&#149 Add import and export support. It probably will be a XML file with outline information that can be imported and exported - Not something that I understand or need
&#149 Set the left side bearing at x = 0 - Something I do all the time to be fastidious, but I don't really know if it is necessary. If it could be automated in the font validation procedure, that would be excellent.
