Noob troubles and Solutions

Being Noob always sucks especially when you are in the company of best. Recently I've decided not to ask noob questions on the forum. Also i had recently gotten into trouble with my FL studio. When ever i open a glyph cell i had to open the tools toolbar again and again. I didn't know what the problem was. I wanted to post it in typophile forums but I had restrained myself from doing so. I never knew i would find the actual solution but today i miraculously found the solution. I had the autohide feature turned on( i just wondered what it was when i turned it on and completely forgot it). Now it is working flawlessly and i am happy that i found out the solution. It might not be a lot but it gave me confidence.
P.S. Be careful while you are messing with your software

First look of Spastha Sans

Hey guys,

Here is the first look of the typeface i am creating. Only caps done. No character spacing done and you can forget about kerning. Just wanted some feedback.
Issues:
The thickness of strokes of V, W, X, Y is to be increased.
S can do better with some more tweaking.
And the inner curves of characters like B, C, O, Q are not perfectly circular(for the lack of better term) and look jagged.( I have no idea how to change it).

Please inform me if you have any other issues...

Update: The problem of jagged text is more pronounced when using at pt size of 36. The other point sizes also give text which is not very smooth. Why?

Thanks
T
