Vector Contours Changes from Clipboard

Post by pt_crusier_2002 »

Using Corel Draw 6 to import my vector character outlines to the clip board then to Font Creator 9. The vector outline look correct in Corel Draw, but when I paste them into Font Creator program from the clipboard the contours change, sharp corners round, curve change to straight line segments, etc. What do I need to do to prevent the vector contours from changing when importing, is there an easy solution to this problem?

Export to eps. Import the eps. Figure out from that import what the scale should be set in FC'S Options to get as close to the size as you need.

I do batches of characters in Xara Designer Pro or CorelDraw this way. I use a template in either application for baselines, etc using guidelines. As I complete them I export and move on to the next one and so on. Then import into FC.

It's a pity the importing from the clipboard is wonky from anything other than Illy.

Why are you asking this question again?

Wasn't the answer in your previous thread of any help?
